Aventinus Wheat Doppelbock

  • SRM Color: 17
  • Brewer: G. Schneider & Sohn
  • Brewer's Description: Bavaria from its strongest side. Dark-ruby, almost black-colored and streaked with fine top-fermenting yeast, this beer has a compact and persistent head. This is a very intense wheat doppelbock with a complex spicy chocolate-like arome with a hint of banana and raisins. On the palate, you experience a soft touch and on the tongue it is very rich and complex, though fresh with a hint of caramel. It finishes in a rich soft and lightly bitter impression.
  • Russ' rating: 9 of 10
  • With the brew: A Sense of Adventure.
  • Comments: This Beer was offered to me by my oldest friend, Stan Widmer.  The Beer pours with a cloudy stream with sediment visible even after settling for several hours. The top fermenting Yeast keeps the beer flavored evenly by depositing the sediment through the entire pour. The aroma was noticeable immediately, and was full of all the things that should be in a beer. You could smell the Hops, Yeast, Malt, and Wheat mingling together to create a complex scent that reminded me of many of the good Homebrews I have had. The flavor was spot on for a Doppelbock, strong Wheat flavor with rich spicy Hops and the Yeast that ties them all together with an intensity that is not for casual Beer drinkers. You truly get the feeling that this Beer captures the history of classic Brewing tradition. The head lasted the entire Beer, leaving a foam smile after every sip, just like the one on my lips.
