    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 8

    Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a tightly bubbled off white head that shows moderate retention. The aromas consist of banana and clove with hints of spice, light fruit, and earth. The taste is fruity and spicy with clove and banana dominating. Light yeasty earthy flavors come in as well. The mouthfeel is medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet feel.

    Pours an almost clear burnt caramel color with a 4 finger head that takes it sweet ass time. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is heavy on the cloves and banana. Taste is light on the flavors that would in any other beer bee overwhelming. Hints of malts, cloves, bread and citrus. Ever slightly sour. Easier to drink than I expected.

    Sampled from bottle. One of my least favorite styles but this is solid. Pours cloudy brown with a creamy head. Not particularly attractive but it looks like it's supposed to. Pleasant aroma - not too much clove. Good. Yeast is not too phenolic. Very pleasant.

    A very classic Hefe, much better than any american version but still not the class of the German field. Kind of a sweet and sour aroma with the wheat, flavor is clean and wheaty with a decent hop presence. Just a classic version and well worth it.

    Pours a murky tea brown with a tight white head and tons of lacing. Good carbonation. Nice sweet ripe bananas, sweet malts and fruits, wet wheat, and yeastiness and goodness in the aromas. Taste is rich with ripe fruits especially bananas, sweet malts, a yeasty tart tang, and sweet wheat. A truly outstanding beer.

    A truly outstanding beer. A rather cloudy, dark amber/light brown color with a large, thick head and fantastic lacing that releases the flavor and aroma throughout the glass. There may be a better brand, but I've yet to try it.

    Drank this one with the Weihenstephaner yesterday and have to say i prefered the Echter. It pours a deep murky brown body, some yeast flake floaters were present. Nice light brown head. Mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Flavors evolved as it warmed but banana, clove, roasted nuts and sweet malts blended well together. A pretty good beer that i would purchase again.

    This Bavarian brew pours a dark hazy brown with a big white rocky beige head that left nice lacing. Immediately the aroma of this beer fills you with yeast--you know the "unbaked" bread scent. Then smelled of citrus and bread. First taste was of citrus and wheat followed with banana and some sweet malt low on the hop end. Flavors really start to open up once it becomes a bit warmer. Creamy texture mouth feel. The finish is sweet fruit. A very nice beer. This is the first style of beer I remember drinking in Landsthul, Germany almost 20 years ago and I liked it so much then, I decided to make this the first batch of my homebrewing experience.

    Mighty fine Dunkelweizen, very complex and soft I was surprised by how wonderful this wheat beer is. Vinous aroma with dark sweet fruits as well as a nice banana presence. Vanilla and lightly spiced scents come forward as the beer warms. Hazy reddish-copper, dark at the wide top of my glass and gradually lightens down toward the stem. Large creamy cap with stings of lacing. Moderate malt body, crisp with a drawn out smoothness. Delicate and tantalizing to the palate. Flavor is a wonderful marriage of fresh wheat and port. Banana, spicy cloves, and cherries are all rolled in there as well. This reminds me of a wheat based version of Unibroue's Trois Pistoles. Nice layers of flavors, this is excellent.
