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°

Dark/brown, opaque with a huge white head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity (humm! ripe banana), with roasted malts. Flavor starts sweet with ripe banana striking back, a nice spicy touch (essentially clove and cinnamon) it then evolves to something more malty and finishes on a kind of whiskey/bourbon aftertaste. A very tasty medium-bodied beer.

Dark reddish brown with a VOLCANIC white head, takes a few minutes to pour. Clove, banana and some smoke in the nose. Taste also has notes up front of wheat, clove, yeast/fruity esters and banana - on the back end, flavors of roasted malt and caramel come through. Alcohol content very well hidden. Medium smooth, body with lively carbonation. No lacing but great head retention. Very nice stuff.

16.9 oz bottle. another cryptic date code.
pours a cloudy dark brown with a huge soapy tanish head.
Active carbonation. Aroma is clove, feint bannana, caramel, and prunes.
Flavor is spicy, malty and fruity. like a Captain & Coke allowed to warm before drinking. Just enough wheat in there to add some texture.
finish is slightly sweet with plummy flavors and just a touch of bitterness.
Watch out tho. This beer goes down amazingly easy for an 8%

Pours hazy dark brown with a big white fizzy head. Spicey aroma. Taste is sharp spice and clove. Great malt hides behind the spice. Good stuff.

I don’t want to describe the taste. Other people are better at that than me. But here’s my testimony; If I was promised an unlimited supply of Aventinus, I would gladly give up all my possessions, friends and all that other useless nonsense. I don’t want to give a perfect rating, but sometimes you just have to.

Off-white head on a hazy dark ruby body. Lots of fruits on the aroma. Qlcohol is well hidden behind a very nice taste that remais a long time on the tongue. Roasted tones but very well-balanced taste. A beer I would drink again anytime !

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!
