henrikb (1262) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2006 Draught (7-4-7-3-15=3.6) Fresh fruity nose with lots of Banana in it, later it reveals deeper spicy malt notes (not really any bock character in the nose); It has a super fresh body with some fill to it and an incredible sparkle (champagne-like); The bock character appears in a very long finish together with the classic acidity of the weizen beer. Somehow a strange beer, not typically bock neither a typically weizen. Bottle Brown unclear with huge white head that falls fast; Clove, banana, raisins, bock character in a quite big nose; Very well balanced body with some acidity and a huge carbonation; Exploding finish, huge, chewy because of complexity, not because it is super thick, is it long too. Great beer with lots of character, better then the draught version.

Diogne (1202) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Deep brown-red colour with a thick white head. The aroma is really complex, there is spices, clove, apple, banana, alcohol... It is full bodied, taste is very complex too, with spices, clove, banana and caramel, really malty. Excellent beer overall. The 8% of alcohol is well hidden.

Sampled from bottle provided by dickinsonbeer. Poured a deeper reddish/brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of bananas, cloves, wheat and some citrus. Newer bottle tried next to a 99 vintage. The 99 was oxidized and quite boring while the newer one rocked.

Thanks to dickinsonbeer. Pours a red/brown amber with an average off white head. Aroma of banana, wheat, light citrus and some roasted malts. Flavors of the same, nice and smooth.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Bottle and on-tap. It was a rich redish brown color. It had a huge creamy white head somewhere between 2-3 inches tall and it did not go away fast. When I had Aventinus on-tap at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur it had a very pronounced taste of clove and was very complex with hints of fruits and a slight banana flovor. It was listed as 9.4% ABV, but youd never know it. I couldnt wait to get a bottle from Greens and try it again. I did. One word, BANANA! Thats it nothing else came through. I found Aventinus again at another place and got another bottle. It was almost like what I had on-tap. I think it has to do with the age of the beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2007 Pours a tawny amber color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime receding to a full ring and canopy lace. Aromas of malted bananas and mildly medicinal. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. The texture expands to pillowy soft and chewy effers. Mildly sweet w/ a predominance of malt character. Flavors of spicey banana bubble gum, slight medicine, angotura bitters, rootbeer, and a touch of sour dark fruit that persits from start to finish. The finsh is long w/ a mild sweetness and a tart bittering component.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2008 Bottle. Tasted again, more than 18 months since the last time. I just thought that I should add that my first thought when smelling it this time, was a fine Belgian triple. Theres some of that thoughts when I taste it as well, and it leaves me warm inside, and very content. A really lovely weizenbock. By the way, I think I remember the Weizen Bock from Haandbryggeriet (N) to be a bit fizzy, but Im not sure anymore, as Aventinus has a quite heavy carbonation as well. Anyhow, Im really fond of Aventinus, and my rating stands unaltered. (070912)

Bottled. Slightly hazy, amber beer with a thick, beige head. Heavy aroma with sweetness, toffee, cloves, dried fruits, a little banana and a hint of alcohol. It is quite fizzy in the mouth, but not as sticky as expected, and flavors of caramell, cloves, hops, alcohol, banana and dried fruits swirls around your mouth along with some yeasty notes, finishing off in a sweet, yet bitter, warming aftertaste that leaves you very satisfied. Full-bodied classic beer, and it was a good choice for this cold, snowy evening. It left me very pleased. (060216)

Bottle: Rich, deep dark brown coffee color, thick foamy yellow head. Spicy wintery aroma complements the initial sweet fruit tastes. Finishes in spice with clove notes. Very nice.
