Schneider Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock
Brewery: Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn
Format: 330ml Bottle
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!

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Strong, sweet, warming. Flavors of stone fruits, marzipan, christmas spices, toffee, rich malts. As a fan of wheat beers and Belgian ales, this Eisbock really delivered.
Desert Island Beer
Dark fruit and warming alcohol that only the Germans can provide, this is my number 1 beer by a long shot. Smooth as silk and gets the job done, be careful this one will sneak up on you. You MUST try it
