(11/11/2011) Poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint Glass, perfect 2 finger head with a great lingering fluffy white appearance.

A: Classic Belgian style wheat aroma, wheat with bananas and cloves to compliment. Slightly citrus in the back

C: Beautiful dark banana yellow color.

Sip: Banana flavors up front with a spicy clove and citrus finish. Light mouthfeel with big wheaty flavor.

OV: Classic Euro-style Weiss beer, extremely good beer and impressive among American Weiss beers.

This is the best craft Hefeweizen I have had!!

Bottle poured into weizen

Three finger head, cloudy, straw golden body with perfect carbonation

Smells: Cloves, wheat, herbal, hefe yeast!

Taste: Wheat, bubblegum, cloves, banana,

Mouthfeel: Perfection for the style: fluffy

Overall, I'd have this again. This is an excellent beer! Worth your time.

I will get a six pack sometime.

Keep those Two Brothers Beers coming!!

On tap at Fountainhead

Poured cloudy orange/yellow, small head. Smelled of typical hefe: banana, yeast, fruity.

Taste was excellent. Banana and fruity going in with wheaty/yeasty aftertaste. No bitterness whatsoever. Creamy mouthfeel with slight carbonation.

Overall great great hefe, one of my favorites. I grab this whenever I can. This has a permanent place in my fridge.

EDIT: I bumped the taste points up to 5 after several re-drinks. This is the beer I compare all wheat/whit styles to. I just love this beer!

Available on our in-home four-tap draft system 24/7. Poured frequently.

Ebel's Weiss is constantly available at the local liquor store, and my wife and I have chosen it to be on our first tap year-round. We like it, our neighbors like it, and it's a genuine crowd pleaser.

This beer is a great example of the hefeweizen style -- cloudy, light, drinkable, and with a great aroma.

On draft, Ebel's Weiss is a fantastic beer in summertime or any time.

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

A: Pure gold with delicate white foam head.

S: Rich clove and banana, and I mean this as top shelf...deep and complex. Lemon, spice, and maybe some vanilla.

T: Not too heavy, this style can easily be over-done. Medium sweetness, subtle spiciness, a very soft touch. Low medium carbonation.

D: A very drinkable hefe. The aroma is big and enhances the experience, but it seems to be one of the most well balanced hefe's that I've had.

Milky pale orange with a smallish white head. Fades to an edging but leaves inticate lacing.
Beautiful nose full of clove and vanilla. Banana is pushed to the background. Peppery and wonderful.
The same can be said of the taste. Heavy on the clove/vanilla/pepper spices. Lighter on the banana tones. Yeasty dough flavors are present and welcome as they provide support. Lingering herbals towards the finish, with more delectable vanilla.
A soild medium bodied brew. Carbonation is on the low end, but somewhat prickly. Fairly creamy. Delighful.
Right near the top of my favorite hefeweizens.

12 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Besy By 4/29/12. 15 IBU, 4.9% ABV.

A - Ebel's Weiss pours an effervescent yellow-orange hue that's slightly cloudy from a bottle-swirl and topped by a dense, creamy head. The slow departure produces thickly-caked lace all over the glass.

S - Ebel's Weiss greets you with a pleasant banana ester and sweet malts along with a faint citrus hint alongside clove. Soft wheat backs it all up but there's a strange spice note I can't put my finger on.

T - The mix of clove and light vanilla ice cream topped with smooth banana is fantastic! Sweet malts and light, dry wheat provide the malts for this delicious beer.

M - Creamy and smooth despite it's effervescence, Ebel's Weiss goes down very well. Light to medium in body, the wheat really softens the beer on the tongue.

O - Both a fantastic depiction of the style and a wonderful summer beer I could drink all day long, Ebel's Weiss is a delicate treat with plenty of flavor and equally as much refreshment.

My other brew of choice at a Kane County Cougars minor league baseball game on a hot, humid night. Great family fun, and the Two Brothers tap is right behind my seats.

Pour is remarkably clear for a hefe, appearance is more in line with a Krystal Weiss. No head to speak of, due probably to the plastic cup it was served in.

Aromas of cloves and banana esters, which are also evident in the taste.

Mouthfeel is good, not too thin or heavy. Would make a good session beer on a hot night.

Everything was spot on, except for the absence of yeast haze, making for a classic german weiss beer.

Pours dark for a hefe, right in the direct middle between yellow and amber, nice and cloudy with a big white head.

Smells strongly of clovey wheatmalt. Very, very spicy, which is nice, but it's not really complex.

Tastes much more complex. All the good stuff is there: bananas, white pepper, and cloves. No shitty fruit complexities to weigh things down. And, best of all, the body is so thick and creamy that after a few sips the beer begins to taste a little like flowery frosting. Trust me, that's a good thing.
