Ölbeat 206: Schneider-Weisse Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock

Brewery: Schneider Weisse G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH
Country: Germany 
Style: Eisbock
Abv: 12 %
What about the beer?
Colour is murky dark brown with a finger-thick tan head. Aroma has sweet syrup, caramel malts, dark fruits and ripe banana. Taste begins with bittersweet fruity bite. Sweet citrus fruits with boozy strawberry and sugared malts take over. Towards the end sweet and bitter fruity liquor comes out strongest. Aftertaste has alcohol warmth, fruity bitterness and malty sweetness.

Eisbock? Yep, this was the first of a kind. With this impression it won't be the last. Sweet, fruity, malty and strong. Alcohol makes a smooth entrance and doesn't steal the star role. Pretty great.


For some reasons I have been avoiding good old Scorpions in this blog. Now it's the right time to put an end to that bad habit. So here's some German rock from the 80's, bitte schön!

Scorpions: No One Like You (YouTube)

From the 1982 album Blackout, the song was written by Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine.
