Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Easily the very best beer I’ve ever had thus far. An amazing beer that I personally view as a standard to hold all others accountable to. I HOPE that one day I find a beer better than this but I seriously doubt I will.

This beer looks, smells, and tastes like just about everything - COMPLEX. It even says so right on the bottle. Unpastufilterized in the bottle, for real. To say that this is a beer that does not suck would be the understatement of the millenium. If you get the chance to have one on tap - take it now!

Wonderful beer. Chocolate brown, round taste. I never had a beer like that before.

E’ l’Aventinus, e c’è poco da fare. Perfetta, weizenbock storica, unica. Aroma intenso, complesso con riflessi di banana. Gusto morbido, caldo e vellutato. Si parte da qui, le altre weizenbock sono copie.

The perfect beer. Beautiful pour. Great flavors. Note the banana flavor. Well worth the typically high cost.

Pours hazy ruby brown with a large, fluffy, khaki head. Smells strongly malted, wheat and hints of chocolate. Tastes like a chocolate wheat ale with some doppelbock characteristics; big chocolate notes with some banana and then some vanilla with a touch of clover, peculiar and certainly interesting. Medium to full-bodied with a slick, almost smooth texture and almost no mouth-carbonation, Aventinus Wheat-Doppelbock finishes with hints of banana and vanilla.

This is hands down my favorite beer in the world. It was when I first had this beer sitting in a beer hall in Zurich that I realized how amazing beer could be and the potential beer had. It is smooth, and very flavorful. Very unique if you are used to American style beers. On the sweet side of the spectrum for sure but not as much as a pure weissbier.
