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°

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy iced tea-looking color with thick effervescent light-tan head and some dark floaties. Aroma is of yeast, fresh berries and subtly of alcohol. High level of carbonation. Powerful taste that sizzles on the tongue. Malty backbone with a nice yeasty tart cherry and green apple finish and the slightest bit of warming alcohol all the way through. A very tasty beer.

Nice clear brown with off white head. Cookie dough , cherry, malt and light spice on the nose. Med to heavey weight with a lot of sparkle, sweet at first and lingering on the finish. Chocolate, cherry, clove, light roasted malt and more all show in the mouth. Great Beer!

Normally I’m not a fan of Weizen but this is my first example of this particular style. Unlike many lighter weizen I’ve come across this beer is very complex and _well balanced_. The alcohol is so well hidden it would have passed for a 3.8 or 4.0. The aroma hints of clove and rosemary (though it lacks a certain intensity present in some similar unpasteurized beers). On the palate Aventinius is simply delightful, with sour cherry cola and caramel apple notes blended in with mouthful after mouthful of natural carbonation. The hops show up if you let the beer sit in the mouth for a bit. Aftertaste is tart but also yeasty. This is a beer to savor slowly ... but plentifully.

500 ml bottle sample. About 50 degrees F at serving. Pours a long lasting root beer float colored head. The aroma is very different malty fruity and full of yeast. Color is a dark chestnut brown. This was a very lavorful beer for me, although one that I really can’t quite pin down. I guess the best descriptor I can put on it is a smoky fruity yeasty flavor with a pronounced alcohol kick to balnce the sweetness. I waited for this beer for a while and it was worth the wait!

Thick, small bubbled head that didn’t last too long, creamy white. Very fragrant, yeasty, sweet aroma, very fresh. Mouth feels smooth and light, but not watery, a bit of alcohol. Flavor is full but hard for me to describe exactly...tasty though. I highly recommend.

chriso (7497) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2005
Mid brown colour. Rather paler than I expected and without much sediment in the bottle. Small, but persistent, head. Runs the gamut of aromas from B to V (banana to vanilla) - banana, cloves, pineapple, caramel, treacle toffee, molasses, vanilla and probably some other s too. The flavour has more of the same, but less intense. There’s some plummy fruit and licorice here too, with just a bit of citric bite kicking in to temper the sweetness. The mouthfeel is smooth, tending towards the sticky side of the street. It’s certainly a nice beer, but its not quite a 4 for me. 500ml bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk

Pours a medium brown, very fizzy looking. Head is huge! - it’s officially the biggest head I have ever seen on a beer that I poured myself. Smells of pepper, lemon, lime, bananas, chicory and cloves. Tastes yeasty and spicy; cloves and banana, but with roasted and chocolate doppelbock characteristics as the undertones. Can taste alcohol. First few sips were interesting, but after the three sips, I was nearing beer heaven. Drank this one at about 40-50 degrees, so taste was rich and right on the money. Deserving of its status as a 4-point or higher beer on RateBeer.com.

Rating #400. Dark caramel body with blink-and-you-miss-it head. Soaked earth aroma riven with cloves. Tingling taste thanks to the calm yet steady carbonation. Gentle flavours; bit of a banana dessert I once tried with caramel sauce but in a dutifully understated fashion. Attractive sweetness towards the end. Alcohol level is well contained. A worthy #400 deserving of its reputation.

Dear me..what a lovely experience. Had a lovely odour of an active and unfiltered beer. A nice brown colour and a persistent head. Tasted magical, with a delicate bubbly taste of champagne, and fruity notes that my palate cannot even begin to describe. It was truly an experience and one that I definitely enjoyed.

Deep reddish brown with a slight haze. Maintains a dense off-white head. Rich aroma profile of toasted pumpernickle bread, plum, banana and cloves. Full, chewy mouthfeel. Initial flavor of ripe dark sweet fruit with figs and dates coming to mind. Some whiskey or port- like notes in the background. 8% alcohol cuts in nicely to balance out the sweetness. Pleasantly sweet finish with just a touch of roasty bitterness. A world class Weizenbock!!
