Day #197 – Schneider Aventinus

July 17, 2011

Excellent beer on for today, and you will like it! I’m fairly confident of that. 😉

Schneider Aventinus

Schneider Aventinus is brewed by Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn in Kelheim, Germany. It is classified as a Weizen Bock and is pretty stout at 8.1% ABV. This beer has a pretty good reputation and is supposed to be very tasty, as well as one of the best of it’s style.

This beer was delivered in a fantastic glass made for this beer. It pours a very murky maroon color with a foamy beige head. Doesn’t look very pretty but it’s accurate to the style.

Aroma is lots of dark malts, candied sugar and dark fruit. Plums and black cherries perhaps. As it warms we can pick up more wheat tones.

Flavor is dark fruit, Belgian yeast and bananas. Sweet flavor lingers throughout and completely masks the higher alcohol. This is very flavorful and I absolutely recommend it.
