(on bottle)If I haden´t read the "Weisenstarkbier" on the label, I could have sworn it was a bock. Overall; I love this beer. Great aroma of PEAR, great taste , dominated by PEAR ; right down to the last sip. I like PEAR and this beer will help me in the future, proving that dark beers is not allways heavy and thick. The 8.0 alc. made me whimzy a while too, or was it just another great beer-experience?!

My first chance to drink this world famous wheat beer. Looked forward to it and finally some arrived circa 2003 production. It appears to be a wonderful hybrid of two beer styles...heffe weizen and dopple bock and the advantages of both beers comes through. Came in a tall 1/2 liter crown top with a lush looking label with some medieval geezer on it....write up on the beer's bottle fermentation Champaign-like process. Has a coded date and lot code useless to me to decipher. Poured a clouded mahogany-red with a fine-pored tan cap that stacked out of the glass then stayed as a fine 1 cm cap that rode out the whole drink. Highly effervescent. Gloriously understated aromas of spice-figs and sweet malt hints of cocoa. Starts with a peppery, malty departure then builds on the palate and tongue to a rapturous complex mixture of spices, nuts, sweet roasty malt, citrus peel with cocoa undertones with a somehow, full...but clean, gritty body...then the finish changes significantly to a mellow banana-clove overtone with sweet malt and some hop balance....leaving an after taste that is semi sweet and infused with a dozen different lingering spicy tastes leaving the tongue embattled....then...subtle "warming" from the 8%ABV...which doesn't crash down on you as it does in other strong beers that don’t hide their Alcohol well. WoW!! This is bottled ersatz ecstasy ! Back to the LCBO for more, I hope it cellars well.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Long lasting head and a little lacing. Cloudy, dark red color. Aroma has bubblegum, clove and some peaches. The flavor is too sweet at first, but gets balanced out with bitterness toward the end. Lots of peach, banana and vanilla. A little malt. The high alcohol content is not tasted or smelled at all. Body is medium with some chewiness. Tried again recently, an excellent beer.

cloves and banana smell, murky red with a big head. Wheat palate balances the sweetness.

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Looks and smells like a Dunkelwieizen, with an accent on the malt aroma. Full and smooth on the tongue, with a sweet touch that's not overpowering. Very nice beer.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
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.

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