Share This Review

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.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

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.

Flavor

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.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth and creamy with a medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Finishes dryly with a mild warming sensation.

Overall

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.

About the Weizenbock

The original Weizenbock was Aventinus, the world’s oldest top-fermented wheat doppelbock. The ale was crafted in 1907 at the Schneider Weisse Brauhaus in Munich. It’s a strong, malty, and fruity wheat ale whose color can be pale or dark. Pale versions range from gold to deep copper while darker versions range from amber to dark brown. Both have dense, long-lasting heads that range from white to tan. Usually unfiltered, its clarity is cloudy, sometimes with suspended yeast. The aroma and palate of pale versions will feature toasted bread, banana, and spice. Darker versions can be smoky or roasted with dark fruits and caramel. Its feel is typically creamy with a medium-full to full body and moderate to high carbonation. A mild warming sensation from the high alcohol content is common. Comparatively, it’s similar to the Doppelbock style and is stronger and richer than a Hefeweizen or a Dunkelweizen.
