Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore...
Up until the 1940s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created.
Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery, decided to recreate this classic "mistake" in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later ... Prost!

Pours brown, very hazy, perfect head. Nose: bread, toast, fruits, plum, bananas. Mouth: nice log sweetness, some biterness, more fruits, almost no alcohol. Bitter finish, average carbonation, extremely oily feel. First eisbock, but surely not last one.

Evilman (199) - Taverny, FRANCE - FEB 2, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 What a good surprise. Drank this one on tap @La Fine Mousse, Paris. This is a beer I?ll remember without problem, quite a deep taste and unique character, In a way, this is certainly the best "fruit beer" I ever drank even if it?s not exactly how it is supposed to be categorized. The plum aroma is quite present in mouth, impossible to miss it, resulting in a long and sweet aftertaste. Strong hints of roasted coffee along the way, and a marvelous alcohol level, but still easy to drink without effort. I can?t recommend this one enough. Amazing. APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

Booga (114) - Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2017
Pours deep reddish color with several fingers of beige head that quickly dissipate to a small tight ring. Lots of alcohol in the aroma. Taste is sweet and bready. Some fruity notes. Really intense wheat beer. Highly alcoholic. It pretty drinkable. Not a huge bock fan but this is pretty good beer.

Very strong wheat beer with some plum aromas (imagine a Dunkel with more alcohol and plum aftertaste and aroma). Not my type of beer.

datrael (389) - Krakw, POLAND - JAN 30, 2017
W aromacie nuty ciemnego chleba, rodzynki, figi, śliwki, czerwone owoce, nuty białego wina, estry, fenole, pojawiają się też nuty bananowe i goździkowe, dzieje się bardzo dużo. W wyglądzie ciemny bursztyn wpadający w brąz, obrączka beżowej piany. W smaku znw nuty ciemnego pieczywa, śliwki, figi, rodzynki, białe wino, fenole, także dzieje się dużo, bardzo ładnie ułożone. W tle nieco pszenicznej słodyczy, finisz bardzo fenolowy, drożdżowy, belgijski. Ciało degustacyjne, przyjemnie rozgrzewa z każdym łykiem. Bardzo dobre, złożone i ułożone piwo o przyjemnym aromacie i świetnym smaku.

MatiF96 (145) - POLAND - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2017 Coca-colowa barwa. Bardzo bogaty aromat. Z początku intensywna guma balonowa, z czasem wychodzą figi, śliwki, melasa, ciemne owoce. Pojawia się także nuta alkoholowa. W smaku rwnież bogato, słodko. Słodkie kandyzowane owoce, dojrzały banan, rodzynki. Niestety na minus alkoholowość ktra trochę przeszkadza w odbiorze. Piwo ma dużo ciała. Słodycz pod koniec wydaje się dosyć przytłaczająca, w połączeniu z rozgrzewającym alkoholem sprawia że piwo jest ciężkie, typowo degustacyjne. Tak czy inaczej piwo warte sprbowania, ciekawe. Złożoność robi wrażenie
