The first time I tried this one a few months ago, it was obviously clear that I bought an old, out-dated bottle of skunked beer. Now, this time around things seem much better. Subtle bananna aroma, but not overpowering. The taste is smooth, but not too sweet or too spicy. For those used to American micro "hefes", this may be a departure. Otherwise, it's not too bad.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 A very strong contender. The clovish(?) presence in the third quarter of the profile detracts from the taste a bit. That said, this brew is still an absolute must have. Aroma is decent. Appearance is one of the best I have ever seen in any beer. It has an excellent cloud... and the yeast pour only enhances it. Head is compact and a legitimate half-finger all the way to the bottom of the glass. It's overly exhuberant at the pour, but settles down quickly. Lace is moderate but head magically regenerates with each swig. Fantastic. Flavor on the front end is excellent and drives the beer. Late-middle "essence" detracts a bit from the overall profile. Not a problem though. If you see this brew, buy it. Just make sure you remember where you bought it from.

Yes this is straight down the middle. Fruity without many hops. Just average.

Not bad. A fairly straight-down-the-middle German Weiss. Banana taste, but not much spice.

Lots of banana aroma, some clove, pours a huge billowy head. Small amount of banana in taste, much less of the clove too. Thin, average.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2003
Has a clouded yellow color and a banana smell. Taste was smooth wheat/fruit and finishes very filling. Overall a very fine wheat that I would like again...

"Sampled" on draft at Resis Bierstube (Chicago) in extensive German weiss tasting. Julius Echter emerged the CLEAR #1 !! Our sampling included: Weihenstephaner HW & Kristall, Ayinger Ur Weise & BrauWeise, Fransizkaner, Maisels Weisse, Konig, Schneider, & Hacker-Pschorr HW. To emerge the number one HW among this competition is awesome achievement! Great Lemon, fruity flavor. ALL 5 tasters rated it number one! May not be as good in bottle, but draft is out of this world !

jaymobrown (1644) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Light yellow slightly hazy. Pours with a thick head. Slightly soapy nose - faint wet hops. A bit of malt in the front. Not much in the taste. A little ginger, perhaps a bit of wheat. Slight lemon zest. Nothing compelling. Very fizzy.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2003 A nice smooth wheat beer. I was not overly impressed by Julius but I would drink it again. This Hefeweizen has a golden/amber color and a soft toffee flavor. On the Other hand, the Julius Echter Dunkle is one Bad Ass Brew!

This is not bad for a wheat beer. It is fairly smooth and enjoyable. The taste is lacking something, but I'm not sure what.
