UPDATED: DEC 30, 2009 Dark reddish brown with a tan head. A creamy long lasting head. Smooth sweet palate with molasses. The finish is nice, it melts away gradually. Yeast, dough and cloves in the nose. Score another for German brewers. Rerate 12.29.09 just general impressions, this is brilliant. The balance, the decadence, the hidden flavors and nuances. One of the best I have ever had.

Nice almost smoky, subtle aroma. Appearance is dark red/brown with a very white head. Flavour is malty but also very yeasty. Nice. Full bodied is a good discription.

Cherry brown pour with some cloudiness. The taste is sweet malt, some unfermented notes (kotikalja). Relatively unpretentious and very drinkable.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours a deep amber/brown with a big tan head. Nose is yeast, spices and, of course, wheat. Spiced flavors over a wheat base, malty notes beneath. Finish is a touch sticky, but not in a bad way. A true classic.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Aroma was mostly your normal German Hefe aromas - bready yeast, clove, banana, but this one was much more complex and had an alcoholic kick too. Poured really pretty ruby brown with a 1/2" head. Flavor was a very complex blend of malt sweetness, wheat, spice, and yeast. Apparent alcoholic notes, but not overpowering. Very tasty, lingering finish. This is an excellent brew.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2005
A murky deep red with a thick, creamy head reveals aromas of clove and spice. Yeast truly is a magical beast. The flavor follows with a tingle of carbonation, then a distinctive spicy, almost cherry-like flavor that is devoid of the thick, syrupy sweetnes that detracts from so many American beers of 8% alcohol. A great beer and a classic of this style.

An awesome non-session beer from one of my favorite brewers in the world, Georg. This is not for the amateur beer drinker, but I think I have enough practice to handle it. A gorgeous red wine of a beer with fruityness and darkness that mysteriously work together, an aroma that makes my nose smile, and deliciousness from start to finish. Roll it from the front of your tongue to the back and it’s like a rainbow of awesomeness exploding in your mouth. Bananas and caramel and yeastiness and delicious awesome combinations of complexity that my tongue is not sufficiently experienced to unentangle. Awesome. The antithesis of Anheuser World Select.

a VERY nice weizen Bock by Schneider. the first thing you notice when poring is the HUGE merange head that wants to jump out of the glass and halfway down it stays put!! nice aroma of sweet caramel and....raisins? a little whiff of peppery spice as well. I had smoked up some damn fine 3 and under ribs that this beer went wonderfully with. almost to well!!!!!

A Mes rate: Ok try as I might I cant help but admit this is damn fine stuff. Very very good aroma. Wheaty like a white beer, full on and fruity like a dubbel and something that is almost oud brune in there too. Appearance has just been upped to a 5 now that I have noticed how uneven the line between the body and head is. Its bumpy up and down and at each of the down points there is a little spider trail of bubbles leading down into the body. There is no doubt this is a very very good looking beer. Flavour is chunky, balanced and complex. Dark AND light fruit, clove, yeast, caramel and pudding. Damn it’s all over the place! It’s just very very slightly too sweet if you ask me but it’s hard to find fault. Mouthfeel is chunky, smooth and awesome. Just glorious all round really. This one has special memories for me too. Firstly because it finished Sim off big style at GBBF once and I had to LITERALLY carry her home. Secondly because there is a guy who drinks in the wonderful Bar Fringe in Manchester and only drinks Aventinus in the right glass that he keeps behind the bar. He sinks a few of these and then suddenly stands up and the whole place comes to a standstill to watch him float, and i mean float out of the door with his eyes on stalks. Funny. A real sight to be seen.
