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

Autumn leaves orange with a huge swirl of yeast and a generous number of uprushing bubbles. In spite of a vigorous pour and a great deal of carbonation, the putty colored head has maxed out at two fingers. Thick ribbons of lace are beginning to decorate the glass and don't look as if they'll melt any time soon. A good look.

Classic nose with every one of the usual style attributes. Clove spice is probably the most prominent, but doesn't dominate. Banana is easy to pick out, although vanilla, which the label claims is a part of the aroma, isn't. While it doesn't put a scare into the best German hefes, the nose is commendable.

Ebel's Weisse is a wonderful domestic hefe weizen. There's plenty of malted wheat that provides a great deal of tanginess... that some would call sourness. Yet there's enough sweetness and bitterness onboard, especially the latter, to keep things under control. Plenty of flavors keeps things interesting.

As in the nose, there's quite a bit of clove. That spiciness manages to overshadow sweet banana to some extent, although the banan-o-meter score is still an acceptable 2.5/5.0. After much reflection, I think I'd like fewer hops. I much prefer beer of this style to favor sweet over bitter.

The body/mouthfeel is in the general vicinity of medium. It's a little slick and microcoating on the finish, which causes it to feel a tad more full... and it's as spunkily carbonated as it looks, which causes it to feel a tad more light. Like the flavor profile, the mouthfeel is a study in contrasts and is more interesting for it.

I've enjoyed most of the Two Brothers beers that I've had, but very few have been memorable. Ebel's Weisse is one of the stronger members of their lineup and is an easy recommendation if one is feeling especially patriotic. Germany still rules this style though.

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

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a best by date on the back label. I tried this while home in Indiana to visit my parents. After I bought it, I noticed the best by date is almost 2 months past so I'll retry another time but tasted good enough to write the review. Had a nice cloudly golden color. Good size initial head that ebbed down a thin constant film. Had a bunch of carbonation throughout. The smell was not exactly what I was expecting. It had the usual hefe smells but those were overpowered by what to me it more typical of a witbier. Very peppery and dry. The taste followed the smell again with the wit-ness coming through. Since my sample was past date maybe this is due to that. Overall, a rather tasty brew that would be perfect on a hot day. Look forward to trying others from Two Brothers on my next trip. Highly recommend. (4, RR, T, Y)
