500ml bottle poured into a large wheat glass. Pours a shade lighter than most colas with a live two finger head and no lacing. Aroma and taste are banana, brown sugar, spices, and roasted malts. Finish is clean and drying due to the carbonation. Surprisingly, no alcohol burn even though it’s 8% abv.

Aroma of dark malt, raisins, wheat, banana and gingerbread. Pours opaque dark brown liquid with a medium-sized, soapy white head. Medium sweetness of wheat as well as citrus hops and sweet caramel malt, notes of cherry, almonds, liquorice, dark fruits and plums. Full body with a creamy texture and average carbonation, sweet, fruity finish.

janubio (607) - SPAIN - APR 19, 2016
Pours a deep amber colour, with reddish reflection to the light. Two fingers creamy head that holds all the while, and a creamy lace all around the glass. Aroma of banana, chocolate, cloves, rainsins, rum. Medium body, palate is dense and thick. Taste of chocolate, bananas, clove, vanilla, rum. If anybody told me it’s aged in oak, I’d believe it. Great.

Mørk, sød og kraftfuld hvedeøl. Tydelige frugtnoter i smagen. God til mørkt kød eller søde desserter. Kan anbefales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (from firma bier as Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus). Pours dark brown with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, caramel, banana, wheat. Flavor is very sweet, caramel, roast, fruits, banana, some alcohol. Body is nice and full. Finish is sweet, burnt bitterness and warming alcohol. Overall: great brew, sweet and boozy, just as I like it.

tfontana (470) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Julio’s Liquors. Aroma is dark fruits with fruity esters of banana and clove. Appearance is lightly hazy orangish red with nice sparkle, finger width fizzy white head with poor retention and no lacing. Taste is moderately sweet banana and clove. Palate is medium to full bodied with creamy texture and lively carbonation (dominates the palate) with clean, dry finish. Overall, nice all around though I wish more of the complexity of the aroma came through in the taste.

Matwill (57) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Bouteille datant du mois d’août 2015 prise au SAQ Sélection sur Maisonneuve. Couleur rubis foncé. Arômes de blé, familier avec cette brasserie bavaroise. Au goût on ressent le sucre, mais tellement bien balancé. Un produit phare pour la brasserie, mais aussi pour le genre.

Not my first rodeo with the Aventinus. But finally decided to rate it. Deep dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is wild! I cannot demystify a single note in this jungle of emotions. Taste is well balanced everything. Medium finish, a bit of alcohol warmth though. Overall excellent!
