Private Weissbier-Brauerei Aventinus Wheat Doppelbock

I don’t drink many bocks, probably even less doppelbocks.  For some reason, whether some had mentioned it to me, I saw the Aventinus Wheat-Doppelbock in my local beer store and had to try it.

Pour:

Word of warning, respect the pour with this beer.  This beer pours with a monstrous head, make sure you leave a good 1.5 inches at the top of the glass for the head.  I gave it a gentle pour and right at the end the head exploded, it was really cool!

Appearance:

Beer was a muddy brown, lots of carbonation, and a big, white, frothy monstrous head.

Aroma:

There was a surprisingly very strong yeasty alcohol aroma with a nice spicy clove undertone.

Taste:

WOW! Totally unexpected, the aroma does not match the flavor.  The beer has a very pronounced banana bread flavor, smooth and delicious!  The banana flavor is nicely balanced with a finishing note of clove.

Drinkability:

Superb! The 8.2% abv really hit me in the head, not sure why… but nonetheless a very good beer.

Tasting Method: Pint Bottle

My Rating: 9.5
