The Aventinus German Wheat Doppelbock is made by the award winning “wheat beer specialists” of the Schneider brewing. The Aventinus is the oldest wheat doppelbock of Bavaria, sold with the original recipe dating back to since 1907. This doppelbock, or double bock is dark brown in color, with reserved carbonation. The flavor is slightly sweet, smooth, dry and bitter with tastes of yeasts and essence of malts. It’s the perfect beer for the fall season.
Aventinus Wheat Doppelbock 8.2% ABV, original gravity: 18.5%, Germany
From the Scheider Weisse web site:
Enjoying Schneider Weisse: Wheat beer is a very sensual type of beer, as it has special qualities of its own. Among the fixed rituals are pouring it and clinking glasses. Both differ very much from other types of beer.
Rinse a clean original 0.5 l wheat beer glass with cold water, hold it at a slight angle and pour the well-refrigerated Schneider Weisse in the glass. Important: the neck of the bottle mustn’t be “washed”. To get the full yeasty taste you leave a swallow of beer (in Bavarian: “Noagerl”) in the bottle, roll the bottle between your hands before pouring out this last bit.
You clink glasses with their lower part: the foot. There are some reasons for doing so. The glasses are stable enough; it has been a tradition in Bavaria, and it sounds well. In addition, the carbon dioxide “gathers new speed” by the clinking. You did it. Now you can move the glass to your lips and enjoy the beer; slowly and thoroughly. Cheers!
