Brewer Description: (from website) For great moments by the open fire: “Mein Aventinus” – full-bodied, dark ruby coloured, intense and full of fire, warming, balanced and smooth. Bavaria’s oldest wheat doppelbock – since 1907! Its powerful body in combination with its malt-aromatic sweetness provides genuine pleasure – an ingenious combination, perfectly drinkable. Cheers – to this day! It goes well with hearty fare, roasts and sweet desserts.

Intro: A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 19th May 2017 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass.
Appearance: It poured a slightly cloudy dark amber brown colour with a big four finger white head that dissipated slowly to a nice thin creamy cap and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Biscuit malt, wheat, banana and clove.
Taste: Banana bread, brown sugar, clove with a touch of plum, caramel and apple skin.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Very nice and easy to drink which is great since I can now (finally) get this regularly.
