Bottle from Bin 201. Solid hefe, pours out a slightly hazy golden with nice fluffy head, which fades quickly. Normal aroma and flavors of bananas, bubblegum and clove. With a bit of a rockier head, and more sediment, this might have been better.

I am a Weihenstephaner Hefe fan, but I thought this was tasty and satisfying!!!

Poured into a pint glass a cloudy yellow gold with a thin head and light lacing. Very fragrant bready sweet smell. The taste is bready with banana and cloves with some peppery spice. A very nice beer!

Great beer. I tasted 12 like this one to find it. I used to get it by the case from Don. At the casino bar. In La Crosse, Wi. And share with my friends. Looks Golden clouded, Smells Great banana and A little fruit orange. Taste, Smooth and one of the best I have tried. Feels Great. I put 3 grains of long cook rice in it. I called the brewery to get some. And yes the Dean of University was behind the making of it.

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.

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.
