Review: Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus

Schneider Weisse Tap 6 Unser Aventinus
ABV: 8.2%
Kelheim, Germany
16.9 oz bottle
Served in Dogfish Head Signature Glass
Reviewed on 6/1/12

This weizenbock style beer pours a medium dark brown with a solid white head that keeps its form.  Good lacing and thickness.

On the nose, there are aromas of bananas, malt, hops, raisins, hints of spice, and a touch of vanilla.

Taste reveals bananas, cloves, some malt and hops, good spiciness coming through, quite sweet with some hints of a light chocolate.

Mouthfeel is smooth, with well balanced flavors that really get into the mouth.  Refreshing character not typical of a higher ABV beer.

Overall, this is a well balanced, tasty, uncharacteristically refreshing beer that's comparable to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier but with a bigger alcohol kick.  Looks dark, tastes light.  Nice.  Definitely can't beat the price. 

Score: 93
