The history of wheat beer is also the history of the Schneider brewing family and its famous Schneider Weisse. A brewery of great history and tradition, Schneider can be credited with resurrecting a style of beer that came close to extinction in the late 1800s and has built a reputation of being the most distinguished and exclusive purveyor of wheat beers in Germay Eisbock is a stunning little bottle of supercharged Aventinus that was created by accident while regular Aventinus was shipped across chilly Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Occasionally the beer partially froze and this concentrated the brew as water turned to ice leaving a stronger, more complex liquid behind.

Almost perfect
Review by
A rich tasting wheat beer with fruity undertones and a caramel texture. The only reason it didn't earn 5 stars is the 12% means it has to be enjoyed in moderation.
A bit special
Review by
All Schneider Weisse beers are special, so this one has to be almost the guilty secret. Dark and rich in flavour the 12% should not put you off trying this delicious wheat beer in moderation of course.
Review by
Very strong, best drank in isolation, session beer it is not.
Dark and syrupy but still kind of heady like a tripel. Good stuff.
My first Eisbock - and it was amazing!
Review by
Pours a slightly hazy deep brown colour with white head which quickly dissapears. Classic wheat beer aromas of banana and cloves are present, alongside big malt driven fruity aromas and strong alcoholic notes. Taste is warming, spirit-like with malt and alcohol dominating the palate with very little hop bitterness. A sumptuous blend of caramel, toffeee, plums, some spice and breadiness...strong, rich and complex yet really smooth. Fantastic beer.
