Day Three – dunkeltime!

Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel – Würzburger Hofbräu AG

Wheat beers are a favorite of mine, especially Dunkels. Poured from a bottle, the head dissipated quite quickly but was of a pleasing colour and appearance. Aroma is mostly of the crystal malt with a strong influence of the roasted malts and a hint of nuttiness.. Little hop aroma in this one. The colour is true to style but to my eye is a little muddy and not terribly inviting. Body is not overwhelming and carbonation is spot on. A solid beer with nothing to fault but nothing that makes it stand out either, but would make a great introduction to the dunkel style to new drinkers.

The bottle was bought at Michael’s in Marietta GA.

Aroma 8/10.
Appearance 4/5.
Taste 7/10.
Pallette 4/5.
Overall 17/20.
