The Brü Revü – Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier

Continuing on my Hefeweissbier journey for the summer I landed on the Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier.  This is a traditional German version brewed per the Reinheitsgebot or German beer purity law using only yeast, malt, hops, barley and water.  The beer poured a hazy straw yellow with a significant fluffy white head with little retention.  The aroma was pure hefeweiss with strong notes of banana and cloves, but more on the spicy clove side.  The taste was light and refreshing with more of the signature Hefe banana and cloves and a hint of bready wheat.  The body was less creamy and more effervescent and the low bitterness made for a refreshing drinking experience. Definitely a worthwhile stop on my hefeweissbier journey and setting me up for more to come.
