Bottle. I had to get into it a bit before I really appreciated it - had to work my way past the over-ripe bananna element. Pretty beer with a natural appearance. Not overly smooth, a bit choppy, but not necessarily in a bad way. A very different beer for me as I have not had many weizen bocks. This will take some further inspection.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 Bottle. Looks sort of like a trappist beer, although it is not nearly as opaque. Aroma of cherries and citrus fruit, fairly vinous and the alcohol is very present. A big bitter adrenaline rush ends in a muted mish-mash of nuts, banana, spices, and grapes. A nice silky texture keeps this one well balanced, although it is a bit underwhelming.

Poured the color of muddy water. A nice head with lacing that lasts. There is spice to the nose and caramel hints. Caramel hints with clove and fruit. Very smooth on the palate and last on the linger.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Poured a transparent, hazy, reddish, brown brew. The head is very very thick, light tan, but quickly receding. The aroma was spicy and sour. Tasted acidic, sour, spicy, and hints of banana. The palate was very nice and crisp. Went down warm (probably bc of alcohol). The alocohol actually adds more to the beer as it warms.

Bottle. The best of two worlds here... Really thick malts and a hefty bit of German weizen all rolled into one.. This will become a regular.

caramel apples, bananas, cloves and a nicely sweet finish. not too bitter, but it’s there, along with some nice warmth.

It looks like an opaque cola, but of course with a much more dense and stable head. The aroma has a lot of nuances, but is not very powerful: Malts, yeast, wheat, and a little bt of raisins. Obvious yeast- and wheatflavor (sourishness), and a lot of different fruits as raisins, plums and figs. Also a light alcoholic flavor towards the aftertaste which is mainly with wheat and a good amount of bitter hops. The alcohol is a bit too obvious to give the beer the top-grade in flavor. Good body, but not so overwhelming that it looses its wheaty character.

A very pleasing wheat beer. I am not typically a fan of wheat beers. Or, I do not go out of my way to try them, but Aventinus is a wheat beer I would drink all day long. The slight caramel, full bodied nature of the beer, and the lasting bitterness that is encompassed by the other flavors make this a very, very good beer.

Awesome beer. Heavy head. Not a good pint glass pour. Wider the glass the better. A lot of bananas and spice. Great dinner beer.

500 ml bottle Opened with a pretty good hiss. Pours a brown color with a huge light tan head. Light lacing as the head settles. Aroma is full of yeast and esters. Flavor has a wide range of sweet fruit (banana) and spice. Very little hop presence. If I tasted this beer blind, I would have probably said it was some type of Belgium brew. I was hoping for a little more malt. Medium body. A good beer.
