Best before 2013/09. Poured into a Penn Weizen glass. My first Julius Echter beer. Hopefully, this is one damn tasty dunkelweizen.

Wow! What an amazing looking torch of beer that I wield in my hands. Uniformly chocolate brown with cola and dark orange hues. Super cloudy. Immense head that sat at a perfect three fingers for quite awhile. Slowly adopted the yeasty bottom into the beer. Great-looking.

Dark bread and crusts, turned banana, dark wheat, milk chocolate, tangy citrus, raisin, and hints of clove. Not the commanding nose that I was kind of expecting. Still soft and authentically simple.

Oh my. Big rich banana and clove, paired with dark wheatiness, light roastiness, dried cherry, orange, bubblegum, and chocolate malt powder. Has that semi-sweet and fruity/spicy opening followed by growing bitterness and a taste of earthy and citrusy hops in the finish. Very yeasty with a nuttiness that I enjoy. That dark fruit character really amps things up, alongside a traditional, heavily-malted, German dunkelweizen. Pretty phenomenal.

A little sudsy, to go along with the bigger and enveloping mouth of body. Wet and a little coarse at times, but combiningly milky and stocky. A great feel.

A top-notch dunkelweizen, no doubt. Highly recommended. Now, to continue enjoying this alongside my fig and prosciutto flatbread!

Came out of the bottle a murky brown. Thick tan head dissipated rather quickly. Wheat, cloves and spicy yeast aromas are noticeable. Some dark fruit notes as well. The flavors are a reproduction of the smells. There is a bit of sweetness as well. The end of the sip is a it watery as the flavors disappear. I would have liked a little more carbonation.

Great dunkel for a great price. Perfect for a warm afternoon.

Bottle from Harvest Market.
Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a tightly bubbled off white head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of banana and clove with hints of spice, light fruit, and earth. The flavor is fruity and spicy with clove and banana dominating. Light yeasty earthy flavors come in as well. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet mouthfeel. Nice dark Hefe, a bit bubbly for my tastes but they usually are.
