Ölbeat 102: Schneider Weisse Aventinus

Brewery: Schneider Weisse G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH
Country: Germany
Style: Weizenbock
Abv: 8,2 %
What about the beer?
Colour is murky dark brown with a lasting small creamy white head. Aroma has ripe bananas, wheat malts and sweet spices. Taste begins with sweet fruity malts with a short spiky hop bite. Caramel malts with sweet banana, raisin and citrus flavours take over with a sparkling mouthfeel. Sweetness and malts show up near the finish with some berry and alcohol flavour. Aftertaste is a mix of sweet fruits, warm alcohol and dry bitterness.

I've found one new favourite style: Weizenbock! Sweet, fruity, malty and sparkling adventure in superb and delicious flavours. Rich, honest and enjoyable German beer.


Getting one's hands on this kind of brew means a start of an addiction. Not very bad nor serious one, but still you'll have to crawl out of the state of mind with an antidote. In this case the antidote is hidden in this bluesy rock classic:

Eric Clapton: Cocaine (YouTube)

From the 1977 album Slowhand, the song was written by J.J. Cale.
