Commercial Description

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 1940's, 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!

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into its own Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock glass. The bottle was numbered and dated 2007.

    Appearance: The pour is smooth, thick and builds a tall tan head. The head quickly settles down to thin wispy layer that is slick and leaves no lacing behind. Its body is thick, cloudy, brownish in color and contains some small bits of yeast sediment floating in it.

    Smell: The nose is big deep and fruity. Wheat malt notes are surrounded by over ripe banana peel and raisons soaked in rum.

    Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor like its aroma is big and deep as well. Concentrated sweet malty flavor is full warming alcohol, mild clove and fruity yeast showing raison, banana peel, prune and bubble gum like flavor notes. The texture was slick and smooth with slightly syrupy, but not overly so, mouth feel. Carbonation is light in this big full bodied beer.

    Notes: This beer is big, bold, and beautiful.
