Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

Oldest wheat doppelbock of Bavaria. Since 1907. 18.5°

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2009 Not a bad WB at all, but I thought it was a little too sweet at times. Dark brown body, nice thick and fluffy head. Aromas of fruit and mild malt. Tastes of fruit, but for some reason it tastes too sweet? Not too bad, but could be less sweet.

Rating Aventinus Doppel Weisse. Dark hazy red color with a toffee colored, big head that lasted the whole way. Had a weird apple, malt and spice nose. Malty taste, molasses and light cocoa also in there. Cloves were apparent also. Not bad stuff.

Dark brown, clear color. Slight banana flavor blended with sweet malt. Oh thats great. Flavor is sweet and crisp. Very smooth finish. Alcohol not apparent. This has got to be my favorite wb.

An excellent Weizenbock, complex and full flavoured. Toffee, banana and some sourness.

Dark brown muddy water appearance with a decent creamy off white head. Wheat and orangey aroma. Sweetish wheat, orange and yeasty taste. A decent wheat beer.

Cloudy amber color, tall foamy head. Fruit, wheat, yeast and banana aroma. Flavor is quite heavy, wheat, spices and strong banana tones. Smooth and complex.

Mmmm....I realized this was highly rated before trying it but still didn't completely expect to like it as much as I did. The only other Weisse Bock I've rated was nowhere near this balanced or complex. I still really liked it though so maybe this is a style I have a preference for. Anyway, this one has spice and sweetness and creaminess and warming alcohol and wheat and slight fruit and slight caramel and a beautiful smooth finish with lots of banana. Nice.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2004
Beautiful brown body, rich fizzy head, not very lasting. No lace left on the glass. Caramel, candied fruit, yeast and also a hint of alcohol in the nose. Same sweetness in the taste, with a slight hoppy sting in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel; heavy carbonated. I still liked the other weizenbock I had this winter better ("La Speciale dell'Officina"), but that one was a "microbrewed" live beer, and hence definitely fresher... This one is almost as good but I expected it to be a little more complex. Strong alcohol character: this beer can be refreshing AND warm at the same time!
