Really great beer. Had one with two of my pals on the deck after a cookout.

BVery (7878) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle from Spec’s - Memorial in Houston, TX. Cloudy brown-amber pour with a cream-white head. Aroma of overripe banana, wheat, mild light fruit. Medium palate. Pretty darn good.

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.

tekstr1der (131) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2015
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.

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.

Pours dark amber color with medium white head. Nose is rosted malts. Aromas are roasted malts, chocolate and ashes. Light body, medium cabronation. Short roasty and sweet finish. Quite watery.

Beer4000 (5044) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2015
500 ml bottle. Unclear dark amber body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of dark, light roasted malt, some caramel, fruit and banana. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, mild roasted, yeast, banana and some clove. Medium body and average aftertaste. Nice and refreshing, even on the sweeter side.

Atom (1751) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle pours a dark clear Amber/brown with s large beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, slightly cidery, light banana and clove, with wheat. Taste similar to aroma, light well balanced flavors. Not bad.

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.
