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
Pretty solid stuff
Wasn't 100% on what to expect, but its got quite a remarkable flavor for so few ingredients. Will definitely be getting more soon.
Stock standard? No Bock not standard!
Beer number 8. If I’m going to have a beer after dinner, may as well make it a good one!
Brewed by Schneider Weisse this is their Aventinus Eisbock. I’ve become a fast fan of the Maibock beers. This wheat Doppelbock is everything you’d expect from ‘wow’ German beer. Complex, Intense, slightly Malty, carbonated. All sorts of confusing nose, is it raisins? Is it caramel? Is it plum? I don’t know but it was intense and beautiful - great beer. This is a mother of beers, trust me sip this baby. Comes in at a whopping 12%
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
