4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent offering by Aventus, easily the best bocks I have ever had. The balance of sweetness and dopplebock flavoring was uncanny. Delightful on the palate, grapes and smooth malt taste throughout. Transition also provides an excellent treat, with just the right amount of flavor lingering. I found myself drinking this one way faster then I would have liked to, but I could not resist. This was that damn good! An

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I had this on tap at Cogan’s Instant Art Bar in Norfolk, Virginia. This came out a cloudy darker brown color with red highlights and a good-sized light tan head that rose out of the glass. Fantastic aromas rise out of this beer with dark fruits, bready malt and that yeasty wheat smell being at the forefront. There are also slight notes of smoke and chocolate. The taste starts of with slightly sweet fruits and a good amount of carbonation as well. There was a good malt flavor over the middle before a slight bit of hops and wheat come in at the end. This has a full creamy body and good carbonation. Very drinkable as well with 3 or 4 tall glasses easily going down in one sitting. Excellent beer that is highly recommended especially on tap if you can find it.

Wow, what an amazingly complex, but balanced beer. Pours out to a deep-red/brown color in the glass. Aroma of dark fruit and malt. Sweet plum flavor initially, followed by a hint of spice, a bit of the hefe-bubblegum flavor. Only the slightest warming hint of the high alcohol. There must be some bitterness there to balance the sweetness, it’s just hard to find. Not a beer that you could hammer, but it is very easy drinking and leaves you wanting another bottle...

On tap @ Brew Kettle: Hazy mohogany brown w/ a very light beige, lasting very dense head. Heavy wheat malt & clove spice; bubble gum, banana, light plum fruitiness...Very nice!!! Well balanced w/ some spicy clove & peppery yeast flavor; wheat malt flavor; dry finish. banana and plum esters are not quite as strong as in the aroma. Aftertaste is wheat malt. Highly carbonated, medium body, very smooth, alcohol well hidden. Damn fine beer!!!! Classic of the style, although it is rivaled by Plank for this particular style. Dangerously drinkable given the well hidden alcohol.

nice weizen bock.... pours out dark brown color with a hint of sweetness in the smell. the carbonation was actually mind blowing, it fizzed more than a soft drink! but it didnt effect the taste and make it taste like champagne, so that was ok. taste was sweet and sort of malty with no presence of hops in any way shape or form. quite a nice beer, that i could drink alot of. seemed more of a session beer than anything else.
