A tasting of Georg Schneider’s Eisbock, TAP 5, TAP 7

Since my last post, I’ve been able to sample several other beers from Georg Schneider’s brewery.   Here are my thoughts on each of them:


The Aventinus Eisbock is a dark,  rich and full of flavor wheat beer.  There’s a dark fruity essence to the beer that goes well with meat based meals.  You’ll taste some flavors of plums, banana as well as almonds.  It’s smooth,  with a hint of bitterness – overall well balanced I though.   I enjoyed it very much.  It has an alcohol content of 12% so it may not suit the light drinkers out there.




The TAP 5, I liked the least.  It had the most “wheat” flavor of all the ones I tried.   It’s supposed to have a flavor of tropical fruit, but to me it lacked flavor and was very dry.  I did not find it refreshing at all.  It has an alcohol content of 8.2%



The TAP 7 is an amber colored wheat beer.  I found it to be a very good, refreshing beer.  Light and flavorful – a little bit heavier than the TAP4 but not too heavy of a beer for a summer day. Very well balanced.  There’s some flavor of nuts, nutmeg and banana.  It has an alcohol content of 5.4%

All in all, I was very pleased with Georg Schneider’s beers.  I particularly enjoyed the TAP5 and TAP4 which I think are good summer beers.  I also enjoyed the Aventinus Eisbock.   Even my wife enjoyed these and she’s not a big beer drinker.  We both found them to be full of flavors and well balanced.  Neither of us particularly like Hopfenweisse (TAP5) because it has such a dry finish.


Have you had a Georg Schneider beer?  What did you think?  Which is your favorite?
