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°

Pours dark brown, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dark malts and fruit, licorice. Medium-high sweet taste. Medium-light body, thin texture, sweet but not too sweet finish. Very good overall.

Wow this beer was good. It was like drinking liquid candy. I would get this again but the ABV was so high!

Dark purple brown colour with compact head. Aroma of dark fruits, plums, especially bananas. Taste of dark fruits, bananas. Nice malty aftertaste which is very well balanced. Overall: Very good beer, representative example of this style.

60minuteman (1004) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2015
Tapped at Asbury Festhaul and Biergarten. Excellent alcohol retention but never gave the slightest hint of foul filmy resin. Caramel sweetness only enhanced the malt and fruit. Many facets to this baby. Good stuff.

fezzy (100) - California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Big, eatery nose; banana, lemon, clove. Taste starts with tart lemon and a mild bock yeast characteristic sourness, balancing a nice malt backbone. Moves to dark fruits and raisin speaking up, then moving to a blast of esters, yet finishing quite dry. A great example of the style, and quite drinkable for the abv.

Saeglopur (817) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 1, 2015
500 ml, bottled 06.09.13
Dark brown, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Wonderful, deep, unique aroma of ripe banana and various other ripe fruits, marzipan, nuts, some vanilla, wheat, some spices, some booze.
Taste follows this, with some more roast and sligh hops, maybe not fully on par with the nose, but very smooth and warm.
Full, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, astringent, roasty, a bit bitter and smooth, sweet malty.

Delicious! A Weizenbock like no other, accomplished and perfectly balanced. Especially the nose is amazing, a beer you can’t stop smelling! Overall still not my favourite brew from Schneider Weisse, but another fantastic, unique wheat beer by one of my favourite European breweries.

Batavi (97) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2015
Uitgeschonken in 0,5 liter Weihenstephan bierglas. Donkere bruine koperkleur, iets mistig met licht beige schuimkraag die hoog is maar wel snel weer verdwijnt. Geur van rozijnen, cacao en winterspecerijen. Volle en krachtige smaak, met tonen van gebrande mout, koffie, cacao en specerijen als kruidnagel, nootmuskaat en zwarte peper. De afdronk is medium lang en kruidig met verwarmende alcoholische accenten en peperige afdronk. De alcohol is wel enigszins aanwezig, krachtiger dan gebruikelijk bij Duitse bieren, ook begrijpelijk met een percentage van 8,2%. Deze Schneider Weisse Aventinus is het beste Duitse bier tot nu toe wat ik heb geproefd met mooie, kruidige en complexe smaken met een mooie balans in zoetheid en bitterheid tezamen met een fraaie complexiteit in het smaakpallet.

wolffish (329) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
L’alcool, le bois et les raisons secs dominent le nez. Il y a un peu de banane, des figues et des prunes bien műres en bouche. Excellente, et sans défaut je dois bien l’avouer.

Keogh (140) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Barwa ciemno brązowa (herbaciana), piany mało i szybko opada. Aromat przjyemny, złożony i intensywny, mamy przejrzałe banany, rodzynki, śliwki suszone i lekki aromat rumu. Aromat pokrywa się ze smakiem, słodycz obecna ale nie za duża, lekka kwaskowatość i niska goryczka, wszystko to razem bardzo dobrze gra i powoduje ze piwo mimo swojego kalibru jest dosyć pijalne i nie jest aż tak ciężkie. Wysycenie średnie - ale nie przeszkadza, dość treściwe. Kolejne piwo z Schneider Weise które dla mnie jest genialne.

Bottle. Brown body with fast disappearing tan head. Aroma is malts with banana with ripe fruits and hints caramel malts. Taste is sweet malts with some fruits. Aftertaste is sweet malts with some bitterness and hints of malts. Nice one.
