Schneider Weisse Aventinus (8.2% ABV): This Weizenbock/Wheat-Doppelbock Ale pours a cloudy chestnut brown with a sudsy head that thins out quickly leaving very little lacing. The aroma reminds me of unsweetened banana nut bread. I picked up on caramel, toasted malts, banana, the slightest bit of citrus and traditional fall spices such as nutmeg, allspice and clover. These flavors carry over into the taste, but the banana is a bit more prevalent here. Sweet banana comes first followed by plum and cranberry. Hearty spice and nice dose of alcohol come through once Aventinus warms up a bit. The flavors come together to balance out the sweetness. I haven’t tried many beers in this style, but I will definitely be sipping on this again in the near future.
