Several years ago, I worked on a down and out horrible project in a place far from my home. My one saving grace that got me through the day was returning to the hotel bar at night and a chance to unwind and indulge in a G. Schneider & Sohn Aventinus wheat doppelbock ale. The bar was going through some "world beers" campaign and I just happened across it. Had never heard of it or doppelboch ales. Rich, complex, dark and strong. Sometimes I tasted toffee, other times cherries, still other times cloves or maybe it was just malt. I could have filled a books worth of tasting notes. The hotel bar charged me $10.00 for a 500ml bottle. There went my dining stipend...
Fast forward- I'm at a local store in Brooklyn the other day, trolling the aisles for my beer stocks, when all of a sudden I spotted it on the shelves. Price, about $3.
Herr Aventinus, willkommen back to my world!
Anyone else have thoughts on this beer?
