look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a hefe glass.

A - Pours a bright yet cloudy orangish color with a snow white one finger head that last for a bit before settling into a nice ring around the glass.

S - Ah, a hefe. It's been awhile, old friend. Clove and bananas. Lots of that good yeasty spice. Not overbearing.

T - Much like the smell. Yeasty spices with emphasis on the cinimon, with the orange peel and banana taking it down. Not strong in flavor at all. If I could improve it, I would kick everything up a notch. Other than that, it's very good.

M - Nothing to write home about, but decent. It's a tad thin and could use a few more bubbles.

D - The best part of this beer. It doesn't have the "wow" factor of a lot of beers, but it is certainly good and doesn't offend. Would be easy to drink a dozen of these things.

Thanks to nucular george for the chance to try this beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle with a best by date of... tomorrow! Yikes, I should check dates before I buy things, but I'm getting this one just in the nick of time. Aggressively poured into a weizen glass. Hazy straw body with absolutely no head to speak of. My initial reaction is a bad bottle, but other reviews seem to say the same. A ton of bubbles rising up and only the thinnest layers of bubbly lacing.

Aroma is very yeast-forward. Bubble gum and cloves with just a touch of banana. Light wheaty aroma and a touch of spicy, earthy hops.

Flavor is mostly clove, banana, and vanilla. Touch of white pepper. Slightly spicy hoppy finish, but overall very thin flavor.

Light bodied and highly carbonated. A little creamy, but far less chewy than most hefes.

Meh. This is a very unsubstantial and underwhelming beer. Actually, kind of disappointing considering how much I like Two Brothers. All the typical hefeweizen flavors are there, but most of them are completely sedated. I'll stick with a Munich hefe or a SN Kellerweis next time.
