Cloudy deep amber color with a gray cast. Earthy aromas and flavors of dusty ripe banana bunch, baked yams, and spicy pudding with a vibrant supple fruity-yet-dry medium-full body and a long, harmonious Asian pear, honeyed fig, and nut-accented finish. Delicious and stately.

Deep mahogany color. Aromas of chocolate covered espresso beans and dark toasted banana nut bread follow through on a round, buoyant entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with very good depth and harmony of flavors. Finishes with a long, zesty peach marmalade, praline, and grassy hop-accented fade. A delicious, crowd pleasing dunkel weiss.

89 Julius Echter Hefe-Weiss Dunkel, Wurzburger Hofbrau (Germany). 5.5% ABV (7/10)

A supple entry leads to a dryish medium body of toasted banana nut bread, molasses, and wafer. Finishes with a soft, melon rind, oily nut, and turned earth accented fade. Somewhat odd nose holds this back a bit, but otherwise a very nice beer.
