4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Look - Thick head if poured aggressively. Thick bubbles and not retained. Dirty ivory as opposed to tan. The color is unique. It is lighter than a brown ale. It had a red tint too.
Smell - Malt. Brown sugar. Wheat/grass. Sour. Faint chocolate.
Taste - Malt. Sour. Sweet and sour. I am not sure where the alcohol is.
Feel - Very carbonated in the throat. Creamy until swallowed. Heavier than other wheat beers.
Overall - This is one of the first dark beers I liked. It pulled me away from wheats and in to stouts. I really like this beer.

Bottle. Fairly clear reddish brown with a thick off white head. Pleasant ripe banana and burnt sugars, perhaps a bit sweet but I really like the caramel in this one. Makes me realize that I haven’t had a really good dunkelweizen in quite a while, very satisfying.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
New to this style, I really enjoy wiezenbock so had to try. Deep amber/light-brown pour with off-white sticky head - looks great! Aroma of ripened fruit, yeast, and some wheaty malt. Flavors are mostly the same - not a bad thing - with a touch of sweetness. Finish is a bit dry as the flavor quickly fades.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another old bottle that just showed up at one of my local liquor stores. Sigh. I should’ve checked the bottle dates before purchasing. Best by 2012! Ouch. It pours a very dark amber red color with a nice khaki head. The aroma has some light cherry cola, wheat and stale bread. A little cider. The flavor is a little better with some rich bread, bread crust, mild watery cola, and some light plum notes. Not as bad as the old Hefeweizen I had from them. It’s too bad they let this stuff out into market so old.

500 ml bottle at home from notes. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild roast, banana, cloves, chocolate, caramel, mild citrus notes with a hint of apple, decent enough for what it is.

Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel is not enough of a Hefe or Dunkel to make it interesting. Nice yeast aroma coming off this dark pour with a nice thick head. Taste has a nice yeast character but none of the notes you might be looking for in a Hefe. No dark beer notes either. Still, a decent brew especially with a meal.
