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

Originally rated on 9/5/08. Drank this one with the Weihenstephaner yesterday and have to say i prefered the Echter. It pours a deep murky brown body, some yeast flake floaters were present. Nice light brown head. Mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Flavors evolved as it warmed but banana, clove, roasted nuts and sweet malts blended well together. A pretty good beer that i would purchase again.

chinchill (3888) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2016
500 ml bottle with a BB date stamp of Feb. 2016 poured into a lager glass. A - Pours cloudy, very dark mahogany in color, with a generous and persistent tan head. Aroma: Sweet aroma of banana, dark bread and light spices. Flavor - mild, with banana, wheat, sweet caramel malt, light clove. About equally bitter and sweet. Feel - lively high carbonation seems too high. Light body. Overall: lively and refreshing.

Dark burnt Carmel color with thick white head. Spiced banana bread, hint of coriander, possible smoke on the nossle. Pallet replicates it nose with a smidgen of sour on the finish. Light to medium body with a dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown with big head that lingers. The flavor is almost like a Belgian beer with lots of clove and banana. It has a mildly sour aftertaste that dissipates quickly. Pretty good overall.

Julius Echter Hefe-Weiss Dunkel has a very thick, mauve head, an initially clear, fiercely-bubbly, rust-brown appearance, and heavy lacing globs left on the glass. The beer clouds up, once the caked sediment is swished loose and poured in. The aroma is of spiced bread, prunes, banana, and banana cream pie. Taste is of those elements, with no bitterness factor, but some acidity showing up. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Julius Echter Hefe-Weiss Dunkel finishes drinkable and on the dry side. RJT

rjplumer (934) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Banana and spice aroma. A beer bottle brown colored body. Wit a mild tan head that lingers a long time. Taste has a mix of banana, yeast and sweet malt. Refreshing. This is a winner.

BillKismet (3739) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Full amber body with a poofy, overflowing, off-white head. Liquid bread aroma, enticing German yeastiness with feintness of bananas and even more subtle clove, accenting the multi-grain backbone with a splendid aromatic complexity. Likewise, the first sip is a delicious, filling, and fulfilling one of liquid bread. Complex, multi-grain flavor with some caramel, wheat, and Pilsen malts. Touches of banana and clove, and eventually, even some chocolate. All wrapped together with a perfect wheaty tartness on the finish. Thick,complex and substantive from the first to last sip

BVery (9189) - 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.
