Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus is a Weizenbock brewed by Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a wheat beer glass from a bottle.
The Weizenbock pours a mostly cloudy chestnut brown that shows ruby when held to the light. It’s topped by a thick cap of very dense cream-colored foam that shows good retention. A few droplets of residue clutch the sides during consumption.
The aroma is strong with a scent of banana, caramel, and a hint of clove. You’ll smell it right when you pop open the bottle cap.
The palate is malty and begins with a taste of toasted bread and is followed by a mild smoky flavor. Bitterness is minimal and the finish introduces a touch of hops before finishing with flavors of spicy rum and nut. Dark fruits of plum and raisin are also present.
Its feel is smooth and creamy with a medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly with a mild warming sensation.
Looks lovely in the glass and its aroma is fantastic even though it fades not too long after the pour. The feel perfectly supports a malty palate whose layered complexity is wonderful, even in the absence of bitterness. And although it’s malty, this brew is still quite easy to tilt back. The Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus is certainly a must for any connoisseur.
The First of Its Kind
This brew’s history can be traced back to the origin of the style itself. Aventius was the first top-fermented wheat doppelbock ever created. Georg Schneider III’s young widow, Mathilda, crafted the first Weizenbock in 1907 at the Schneider Weisse Bräuhaus in Munich.
