Bottle. Poured a medium hazy brown with a very large off-white fizzy head that dissapated rapidly and had no poor lacing. The aroma was complex with a dark chocolate malt and a sweet earthy yeast that had notes of clove, banana, vanilla and a mild alcohol scent. It tasted sweet and acidic with a mild hint of banana and chocolate in the begining and the become mildly sweet with a yeasty-sour flavor that had a nice spiciness at the finish with the flavor lasting only a short time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall an awesome wheat/bock beer, in fact I think I will just have to drink another.

500ml bottle and Schneider restaurant Munich I tried this one off the back of its high rating on ratebeer and it didn’t disappoint. Such a deep and complex taste of caramel, wheat, and a fruit. Dark brown in colour. Top notch

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Has a nice brownish amber color, cloudy, with a nice tan head. Smells sweet with banana tones vinilla some bread scents too. A big strong taste with a mix of wheat followed by an unexpected citrus at the middle backed up with chocalate malts at end. Like any dopplebock, packs an alcohol wallop at 8%. Slow and steady as you go and you’ll be just fine. A good fireplace beer after a hardy day of work. Drink well my friends

From 0.5 l bottle. Pours a thick brown colour with a lasting pale head. Aroma is mainly banana and peach and caramel malts. In the mouth, strong banana, clove and cinnamon flavours with a spicy and slightly sour finish. Can’t taste the alcohol out of it. Great mouthfeel!

Weizenbock at its best. Beautiful dark brown color with a big airy foamhead. A complex mixture of caramel, bananas, dark fruits, yeast and bread in the aroma. Taste is sweet, more bananas and more caramel. Medium-full body and a spicy finish. The alcohol of 8.2% is quite present. In German, there’s a simple word for it: "lecker".

Fantastic weizen. Dark brown color, very hazy. Head of course is beautiful, big and fluffy. Perfect taste of banana, mango and other yellow tropical fruits. Alcohol perfectly covered.

Poirs dark brown with a lpt of head. Loads of carbonation, smell is soury, almost early wine fermentation like. Taste is very mild and surprisingly not sour. A very nice aftertaste aftertaste follows.

Bottle from a Getränke Hoffmann in Berlin, poured into a stein. Pour is dark with a frothy head, aroma is caramel, toffee and red wine. Taste is rich fruits, strong booze notes, wonderful strength and a beautiful complexity with banana notes on the finish. Magnificent

Taboada (278) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 24, 2014
500 mml bottle tasted on 24/06/2014. Hazy brown colour with off-white head. Banana and cherries in the aroma. The taste is complex and balanced between the fruits (cherries, banana and dark fruits), the caramel and bubble-gum. Carbonation and body are medium. Aftertaste is a little dry and spicy. Another one nice beer from Schneider and Sohn. Next one please!

Lele (87) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Birra simile alla Schneider Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock, con un sentore alcolico però meno pungente. Corpo strutturato, in bocca si percepisce del maltato, affumicato e tostato.
