Schneider Aventinus Aged 5 years vs Fresh
Weizenbocks are one of my favorite styles of beer, and Schneider Aventinus is one of my favorite beers, and I was excited to do a comparison of aged to fresh. I was fully expecting to enjoy the aged Aventinus much more than the fresh, but I had the complete opposite reaction. The aged and fresh beer taste quite different. The fresh has a malty full body feel, and the aged Aventinus has more of a dry thinner wheat wine-y taste to it. The color and haziness on both beers was identical. This just makes me more excited to start brewing my own of this variety. The fresher the better.
