GERMAN WEIZENBOCK

Schneider Aventinus

Bavarian wheat beers, or Hefeweizen, are yeasty and unfiltered, giving them a distinctive cloudy appearance and spiced fruit flavor. Schneider is one of the region's finest producers, and their Weizenbock is a revelation to taste. Aromas of freshly baked banana bread and cloves leap from the glass. Decadently rich, sweet flavors layer the palate, from butterscotch to brandied cherries to pecan pie. Who needs dessert when we can have the equivalent of bananas foster in a glass?

Price: $4 (500 ml)
