Other Information

Schneider Weisse was founded in the Kelheim region of Germany in the 19th century and is renowned across the world for instigating the revival of the wheat beer following King Ludwig’s discontinuation of the style due to poor sales. Going from strength to strength, Schneider Weisse today is in the 6th generation of the Schneider family, but still retains the passion and creativity from more than 200 years ago. They produce several beers or ‘taps’ as they are known and this one in particular, the ‘Tap 6’, is their wheat doppelbock.
The Tap 6 Mein Aventinus is Bavaria’s oldest wheat doppelbock, which has been brewed since 1907. As is typical of Schneider Weisse, it uses German Hallertauer hops, along with Tradition and Magnum, and its malts derive from wheat and barley. It weighs in at 8.2% and pours a dark ruby colour with a strong creamy head. The fruits are apparent in the aroma with bananas, raisins and dried plums present along with slight liquorice and toasty notes. A full bodied beverage that is warming and well balanced, Tap 6 pairs well with roast meats as well as game, desserts and blue cheese. Strength across the board, allow yourself to indulge in this intense yet drinkable beer from the wheat kings of Bavaria.

  1. Stujago

    This is a very tasty weizenbock with similarities to the eisbock Aventinus. There is a strong banana taste with a nice sweetness. It has a fantastic head. The alcoholic strength comes through at times but it is a smooth drink.

  2. Anna

    This is one of the nicest beers I have tasted. It is dark, syrupy and complex. Very easy to drink too. I would say that it is almost as good as the other Aventinus beer (Eisbock) which is probably the best beer I have had. I would highly recommend.
    Note that the label is predominately purple and looks similar to the Aventinus Eisbock label (rather than the picture that is currently being displayed on this site).

  3. Jordan Clay

    Absolute classic. Dangerously drinkable with no alcohol burn whatsoever. Perfect advertisement for the style, stone fruits, banana, plummy. Great mouthfeel and a subtle sweetness and not over carbonated. Looks great in a glass with a nice creamy head and good lacing
    A favourite to return to, especially on a cold winter night

  4. Chris Meechan

    A dark ruby coloured wheat beer with a sweet malty aroma and a well balanced warming alcohol finish. A perfect match for a medium roast.

  5. John Sanders

    This beer is heavenly, from first sip to last – a truly world-class example of a Bock/Doppelbock from one of the great wheat beer breweries.

    The pour is deep brown, reddish with the light behind it, and produces a deep, rich head. The aroma is caramel, banana, cloves and rich, rich fruitiness that gives it the feel of a ‘winter warmer’ – you have to remind yourself that it’s a wheat beer. The taste – wave upon wave of malt with a very sweet finish.

  6. Paul C

    An extremely enjoyable Doppelbock.
    Pouring with a creamy head,it is syrupy with,for me, predominantly rum and fruity flavours.
    It is smooth, easy to drink, with an alcohol kick.
    Not to be missed.

  7. Kristin

    I quite like it with it complex flavours, but it does taste strong. Being a Weiss doppelbock the dark colour surprised me a bit, but it does have a pleasant caramel flavour that fits the colour

  8. john morris

    lived in germany for four years but never tried this wheat doppelbock before, it is a fruity dark beer at over eight percent fairly strong, very enjoyable, bring the munich beer festival to your home with this beer, will be buying again.

  9. Neil Ward

    Very much enjoyed this strong wheat beer! Nice fruity and caramel flavours and not too much “alcohol” flavour despite the ABV.

  10. Ryan Powell

    The King! The BEST Doppelbock ever! My go to drink for special occasions! Stunning!

  11. Kris

    Enjoyed this very much, very interesting beer that makes you think as you go through it

  12. James Murray

    One of the best dopplebock’s Ive tasted. 8.2% so incredibly boozy, rather sweet taste to this which is a nice surprise, as with a strong dopplebock, id expect this to be much more bitter but it isnt. A very well put together beer.

  13. Simon Tomlinson

    Tight fluffy off white head stayed on a cloudy brown body. Sweet aroma of dark fruits, berry& spices. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated with a clean finish. Brown sugar, dark berry, spices, clove & malt tastes. Excellent!

  14. John J

    What can I say! absolutely excellent dopplebock. I drink this regularly at a pub in ‘Bath’ always have this on order from beers of europe. lovely head, very moorish, very easy to drink indeed, great underlying fruit’ish taste. Absolutely love this one.

  15. Richard Moss

    Lovely wheat doppelbock which never disappoints.
    I’ve had the vintage ones which are great for cellaring and saving for special moments. May try to do the same with a couple of these.

  16. Sam Dutton

    Solid, though not my favourite of their strong beers. For me, the wheat really comes through.

  17. Chris Holmes

    Absolutely superb. One of the best dobblebocks beers I’ve ever had. Incredibly smooth and hides the ABV very well!

  18. Paul C

    Fantastic doppelbock. Definitely the one to beat for me, never get tired of it. Sweet and malty with a lingering finish.

  19. WJ

    Sweet, wheaty, decadent, divine! You will not be disappointed.

  20. Andrew R.

    A big ol’ boozy beast! Lovely stuff. Smooth, sweet and with a tasty, caramel-laced maltiness that just won’t quit. Impressive!

  21. Matthew Osborn

    Nice drinkable strong beer – packs a real punch

  22. Luke Manley

    Great beer. Would buy again.

  23. Jamie K
