Aventinus Eisbock by Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH is a 12% ABV World Class Eisbock.

Label:
Aventinus has been known to be the most intense and complex wheat-doppelbock in the world. This was the case for the past , but not anymore… Recently, Hans-Peter Drexler, brewmaster at G. Schneider & Sohn, heard stories about some extra special Aventinus resulting from partial freezing during a cold winter transport in the 1930’s . He decided to recreate this classic “mistake” to further concentrate Aventinus in a modern controlled facility. Thus, The Aventinus-Eisbock was reborn, Prost!

Considered the 3rd best Eisbocks in the World. Dunkelweizen styles is one of my favorites from Germany but they take this one to another level by freezing a portion of the beer and removing the water then adding it back to the base beer creating something super complex. This style is something I have never really tried and am damn curious to try and review here at brewerianimelogs. This beer is readily available world wide in many import craft beer sections. Cheers!

Aromas:
Rich dark fruits like raisins, figs, plums, banana cream pie, pecan pie, dark candy sugar, brown sugar, clove spice, coriander spice, wheat bread, biscuit bread, honey, dark cherries, flan, raisin bread pudding, chocolate notes, rock candy sugar, toffee, vanilla and crème brulee and dulce de leche caramel.

Flavors:
Rich Banana, rich clove spice, phenolic notes, rich dark fruit raisins, figs, plums, dulce de leche caramel, vanilla, toffee, biscuit bread, coriander, brown sugar, rock candy sugar, dark candy sugar, chocolate notes, flan, crème brulee, banana cream pie, banana split with dark cherries, pecan pie, hazelnut, honey, apple, cinnamon and stone fruit notes.

Aftertaste:
Banana, clove spice, wheat bread, dulce de leche caramel, dark fruits and earthy notes linger. Partial alcohol in the taste but not detracting from the flavors despite the fact that it is 12% ABV. A sipping beer, syrupy mouthfeel, brown, yellow an pitch black full body.

Overall:
This is is one of the finest ultra dunkelweizens on steroids I have ever had. This beer is definitely right next to the Belgian Quads in flavor but the unique Bavarian style definitely differentiates it completely from the Belgians. The banana notes and dark fruits are much stronger with this one almost to the point of no return. At 12%, I really love this beer and highly recommend you getting a bottle for sure!

Anime Corner:
Melissa from Knights in the Nightmare was used in this pairing to mainly pair with the aspects of label colors as well as the strength of the ABV. The armor she wears represents the ancient Bavarian style which has survived for many centuries and still alive in the German beer world. Melissa’s colors pairs with the dark complex flavors of the beer as well. The Angel likes wings represent how this beer is just as good as what the heavenly Belgian monastery’s can offer.

Kellerweis by Sierra Nevada

1001029_10101288136890310_471380571_nRating: 4.6/5

Kellerweis by Sierra Nevada is a 4.8% ABV Hefeweizen

Label: 
Kellerweis is one of the few American Hefeweizens made using the traditional Bavarian style of open fermentation. This difficult and labor-intensive technique adds uncommon depth and flavor complexity. Our hazy-golden hefeweizen is deeply flavorful, refreshing and perfect for a sunny day. To serve, pour two-thirds into a glass, swirl and pour the rest.

Long ago, they used to have it as a common beer near where I live until they decided to change things. I have seen this one in many other places and it is quite common. So I finally got around to getting this one to do a review.

Aromas are very nice. You get the really nice banana, clove spice and sweet biscuit bread you get with the Bavarian style, wheat, honey, coriander, orange, lemons, phenols and slight peppery notes

The flavors are of banana, clove spice, phenols, caramel, biscuit and doughy bread, floral hops, peppercorns, coriander, citrus, lemon and slight toffee notes.

The aftertaste is sweet and hop like bitter. This is pretty damn close to the good German heffs as they get. The best part, is that this is a common. So if you are a fan of heffs, especially German ones, definitely grab a six pack this is. Good stuff for sure.

HefeWeissbier by Weihenstephaner is a 5.4%ABV World Class German Hefeweizen. Considered the best German Hefeweizen in the world

RATE BEER DESCRIPTION:
Nothing refreshes you more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality ‘Weisswurst’ or white sausage.

What a perfect way to rate that the best Hefeweizen in the world is made none other than the World’s Oldest Brewery (Since 1040) in Germany. A very common beer in many of the most common craft beers stores and can you believe, this is the first time I am trying it and to put the cherry on top, Hefeweizen style was my first favorite style around the time I started beer reviews. Crazy huh? Anyways, on to the review.

Aromas are dead on rich Banana cloves, with this one seems to have honey, vanilla, bubble gum, toffee, caramel, citrus, lemon, wheat, banana bread, peppery notes, caramel apple and butterscotch. The flavors are of Bananas, draped in honey, caramel, lemon, orange, peppercorns, bubble gum, wheat, banana bread, banana cream and biscuit bread. Simply amazing. No chance for comparison, even people who fathom the idea of what an awesome hefeweizen is supposed to be like have no idea what a REAL GERMAN HEFF is supposed to taste like. This is the best Hefeweizen I have ever had, but my love still goes out to the Hefeweizen Dunkel. The one made by Weihenstephaner and Franziskaner are the best. I’m a nut for more sweeter beers.
