This is the second of two Julius Echter beers I bought the other day. My first review of them was the dunkelweizen.
A steady pour revealed a highly carbonated beer. Opaque, dirty-yellow in color with a billowing white head on top. Good lace. The nose is rich with banana and lemon. Light spice and yeast smells are also present. Very nice. The taste is duller than I expected it to be, but still quite refreshing. Herbal earthen tones persist. Some pepper mixed in amidst the citrus. Mouthfeel is firm but fizzy with carbonation. A fine, steady balance.
This is a very nice beer. Not as lemony or as buttery as I like my hefeweizens, but still quite tasty. I especially like the pepper flavor this one delivers. And the aroma is delicious. A great brew for a hot summer day in a German biergarten. Would go nicely with a thick strudel or a rich pastry dessert.

I had this beer once in a four pack that a friend bought for me and was very impressed
Normally, I am not impressed with hefes in bottles, but this was an exception
Poured a nice three finger German head into a wheat beer german glass. Head was impressive, lasted and very distinctive German weissbier mushroom top bloom. beautiful hazy yellow.
Aromas of cloves, bananas and just a faint third spice (grains of paradise?)
Taste follows the nose, with just a hint more citrus
Mouthfeel is full but crisp and refreshing
Overall, I think this is my favorite Hefe-weissen in a bottle. My only regret is that I look for it all the time, and it is hit or miss, the Dunkle is usually whats in stock at least in Atlanta….It left a good impression, because I look for it all the time
