Best Brazilian Beer
Recently launched, similar to european WeizenBock. No similar beer in Brazil. Bodomite (34) - USA - DEC 9, 2006
Tastes exactly like the German beer Aventinus! Very thick with a dark brown color. hints of clove and a little bit of Banana mabye? Very nice German style beer. Nothing seems to come closer and not be specifically from Germany. BrunoStehling (4) - Niterói, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2006 does not count
Strong and intense aroma. First impact of strong malts, tipical sweet, but soon followed by a strong, intense bitterness that balances the aroma. It reveals details of soft milk-chocolate, little bit of honey and nuts and some fruit that only later I would reconize.
The body is mild brown, clean of sediments, but thick, lightly muddy. There’s a confusion of mild to dark brown color with the vey fast dissapearing gas that looks like sediments on the first impact of the liquid in the glass. The head is very light brown and thin, and has no longevity at all.
The initial flavor is light to moderate sweet, refreshing, sundenlly it reveals the fruit that I was looking for... bits of banana together wiht a soft touch of milk-chocolate.
Soon the bitterness comes along and gives it a thankfull balance.
The finish also reveals a bit of toasted malts, but very soft when comparing to a stout or a good dunkel.
The finish duration is very long, what is also fantastic for my taste, and that’s why I usually keep this beer for the end of the night after having apreciated different styles.
The texture is velvety, the lively initial carbonation gives a refreshing sensation. with 8% ABV the feel of alcohol obviously exists but is moderate and doesn’t go over the details as it does in some beers. Maybe the strong percentage of alcohol even helps the hops to balance the taste.
Final words: A sum of soft details that are revealed with care makes a final strong and intense balanced sweet-to-bitter taste that lasts for a long time and makes one willing for more.
Brazilian beer with no similar competitors in Brazil (unfortunatelly). The brewer is called Eisenbahn ("Cervejaria Sudbrack ltda" is the official but not comercially spread name. If you come to Brazil you should ask for the brewer "Eisenbahn" to be understood). The Eisenbahn also makes great different styles, but the Weizenbock is their state-of-the-art product in my opinion. badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Nice dark amber color with an off-white head that retains well. Smell is very rich of caramel, various spices, dark fruit, and some clove. Burnt sugar and dark caramel sweetness greet the tongue, followed by perfect amount of spiciness (not spicy as in chili spicy, mind you), with a lingering sweet caramel finish with just a touch of banana. Carbonation is on the higher side, but not overpowering, it’s just the right amount. Body is full, chewy, but not cloying; no discernable alcohol coming through. Truly an exceptional beer, I’m glad I decided to try it. I will be buying more of this and will be trying some of their other products. Ansbeer (23) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 10, 2012
Uma cerveja encorpada com aroma e gosto peculiar, com um leve aroma de malte torrado, uma cerveja de 8% de álcool mas que desce extremamente fácil.

Quite a good beer! Aroma is quintessential weizenbock. Dittl flavor with some booziness to it. Nice maghogany color, some head. Definite sweetness offsets a bit of tartness. Nice finish. This just came in today at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin usa BillKismet (4103) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Another mindblowingly German-styled beer from Brazil (the other being Xingu). Rich amber wth decent head. Outstanding aroma of wheat intermingles with malt and delightful yeastiness. Oh my! Some sock yeasty notes add complexity. Exceptionally well-balanced body that is sprightly and effervescent as the yeast, malt and wheat all frolic together. A touch of uric acid on the finish adds an odd note that works well. killedge (26) - Miami, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2008
