The banana is too over the top for me

Poured a cloudy golden yellow body with two fingers of rich fluffy white head that stuck around. Very true to form for a hefeweizen, quite nice. Scents of banana, clove and citrus zest, alongside a heavy hit of bubblegum. Overall impression of aroma is of a nice hefeweizen. Much more balanced towards banana and clove, but with a nice bubblegum presence. Very nice. Flavor begins with a hit of banana, mingling with a large amount of bubblegum, perhaps too much and a nice clove spiciness. This moves into a middle that is very bubblegum forward, with a medium high level of clove and banana to balance. Finish is lightly dry with notes of banana, bubblegum, clove and a hint of tangy wheat. Aftertaste is banana, clove, grainy malt and light bubblegum. Overall impression of taste is of a decent classic hefeweizen flavor, nice, but with a bit too much bubblegum. Mouthfeel is light bodied, almost watery, with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a classic hefeweizen. Quite nice and true to style. Overall this is a fairly good hefeweizen. It is true to Bavarian style, unlike many US hefeweizens and not bad. Just a bit too much bubblegum. Still not bad.

I used to live walking distance from the brewery, and this was always my favorite Two Brothers brew. Everyone else has pointed out the flavor qualities, and they're on point. I think many have rated it a bit low, but I understand we all perceive flavor differently.

As hefeweizens go, it's probably tied with a Hacker Pschorr (tap, not bottle) in my book.
As always, many reviewers get their jollies by trashing any beers or styles they don't particularly care for, so take those with a grain of salt.

Good stuff.

Pours an effervescent amber & pearl white head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Juicy fruit & cloves , white pepper

T: Follows the nose, a little white grape & a little Band-Aid up front. More juicy fruit & a little bit of cloves as this warms, faint hints of persimmons. Finishes fruity & with juicy fruit & cloves

MF: Medium bodied, light carbonation

A nice take on the style, not top shelf, but not too far off...
