3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge head over CLOUDY weizen. Pale. Nose of banana and desert. The alcohol was present in the taste. Yet this was incredibly drinkable. Its bitterness increased through the end.

Pours a hazy, sort of muddy brown/amber. a little lacing. Aroma of clove, flavor adds a little classic banana and wheatiness, very faint touch of metal, but I am drinking a rather old bottle. Finishes slightly on the bitter side. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by September 2015 enjoyed September 30, 2015 in a pilsner glass.
Look - Kept head contained with careful pour. Big bubbled white head. Clear golden body with a lot of carbonation flowing up. Good lacing.
Smell - Grass. Wheat. Lemon. Spice. Banana.
Taste - Crisp wheat. Spice. Malt.
Feel - Carbonation is not too overpowering. Sits well. No tongue damage whatsoever. Lighter beer so lighter feel.
Overall - These beers got me to try non macro light beers. Not my cup of beer now but have to reminisce sometimes.Style points.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Hell has an extremely thick, creamy bone-white head, an initially clear, bubbly golden appearance, which becomes milky opaque, once the bottom, caked, tan gunk is shaken and poured in. Lacing is splotchy. Aroma is of spiced bread, faint banana, faint coriander, and a whiff of smoke. Taste is the same, with bubble gum and a touch of lemon. Bitterness is not in play, here. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Hell finishes mostly dry and drinkable to the hilt. RJT

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellowed-amber stone body with crisp foam covering. Enticing gusts of caramel grains and baked bread titillate the nose. Riffs of lemon kisses, banana spritz, and sourdough appear as well. Medium bodied with a nice bready character, and subtle notes of sourdough, banana, and perhaps an inference of clove. A bit light on the finish, but that just reinforces how quaffable this one is. Outstanding balance and endlessly drinkable.

Banana, cloves and sourdough with a little tartness. One of the first wheat beers I ever tried, it’s still very refreshing on a warm day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a thick white head. Much thinner mouthfeel than most hefeweizen. Very fruity and spice. A nice change of pace for wheats.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml. bottle. I should’ve known to check the best by date on this before purchasing. Best by 2013. Ouch. I probably normally wouldn’t rate a bottle this old, but since it just showed up at a local liquor store recently, I’m going to. It pours a nice semi clear light golden color with a white head. The aroma is pretty lame. Doughy with some wheat and a strong cider quality. No esters. The flavor is a little better with some mild clove and bubblegum underneath some cidery and wheaty malts. Still very lackluster. Tastes old and stale, which of course it is. Too bad they let this stuff rot out in the marketplace.
