The Eighth Beer of Christmas: Probably the king of wheat beers is the Aventinus, a German Doppelbock Ale brewed in Kelheim. It comes in a largish 500 ml bottle and weighs in at a respectable 8.2% ABV. You're going to need the tall glass.
It features original bottle fermentation, which is prodigious. Aventinus pours medium brown and cloudy with a big white head. The nose is both spicy and yeasty. This beer is a delicious wheat-y flavor with just the right amount of banana and clove spiciness. Warming and delicious.
The official write up:
Aventinus, the world's classic top-fermenting wheat-doppelbock, has received accolades for the perfect balance of fruity spiciness (banana, clove, vanilla) and notes of chocolate (crystal & dark malts). Unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned. Enjoy Aventinus, the massive twin of SCHNEIDER WEISSE.
