Beerman6686 (5340) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Really surprised by this one. Poured a slightly hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was of red wine, dark fruits, oak caramel and yeast. Flavor similar, wine barrel definitely plays a part here, woody and fruity. Highly complex.

Bottle shared. Brownish red pour. Aromas of sour dark fruits and berries. Taste is light sourness mixed with sweetness. Really well balanced.

King_Alex_II (641) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Muddy brownish color with little foam. Sour smell. The taste is light, sour, a little malty with a thick full mouth feeling. Sour, dry and a little heavy aftertaste.

anstei (323) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle at SinH4?s Goodbye Event. Hints of vinegar in the aroma, but not in a stenchy way. Beautiful sourness and well balanced. Very distinct from the regular Aventinus Eisbock, and in a good way still!

SinH4 (1087) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
Brown-reddish color with beige ring. Red berries, malts, tartness, berries, cherries funk. Taste is more of the same, vanilla and oak noticeable. A Flanders-red style Weizenbock? Amaaaazing!

JohnnyJ (4913) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark reddish amber pour, slightly hazy, with an off white head. Sweet malt, raisin, dates, red berries, wood, and slightly sour. A pleasant beer, but it doesn’t jump out at me as being great.

Lukasmh (555) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours ugly murky reddish brown with non existing head. Surprisingly sour on the nose, tannins, wood, oaky vanilla, red wine, subtle malts, sweet fruits. Taste is quite sour and refreshing. Same as nose. Some bitter tannins in finish. Light body and tingling sour finish. A surprise, but e nice one!

WVHouseofBeer (931) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Pours a dark ruby color with a small off-white head. Aromas of cherries, plums, figs, candied sugar, wood and booze. Flavors are along the same lines but I swear I can taste just a little of the banana/cloves from the original Weizen Bock from which it was aged. Fairly high carbonation with a sour/tart finish. This is by no means a Weizen Bock..........Ratebeer needs to re-classify this as a Sour/Flemish Red. Anyways, great beer.

Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 27, 2015
375 ml bottle 2014 edition, from Bier-Deluxe.
Dark red body with a medium, quickly dissipating, fizzy, beige head.
Aroma with a lot of sweet, wooden barrel notes, vanilla, red wine, sweet-sour berries, overripe fruits, some ripe banana, some sweet malts.
Tastes delicious, quite sour, with barrel notes, vanilla, wine, overripe fruits, sweet-sour berries, apples, leather, even some barnyard notes, no Weizenbock notes at all.
Medium, a bit oily mouthfeel, with an average to soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, sour, dry, wooden, fruity, a bit leathery, subtly alcohol warming.

Really surprising! As mentioned by others, this clearly is a Flemish Red and if I didn’t know it I would never guess this is a barrel aged Aventinus. Very tasty, quaffable and greatly balanced, the alcohol is well hidden. Among my favourite Schneider Weisse beers and one of the best Sour Reds I’ve had so far, even though it isn’t categorised as such.
