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.

On draft at World if Beer in Tioga. Highly recommended by the waitress. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head as expected for the style. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat malt, spicy and grassy hop presence. Flavor follows he aroma closely with big banana and clove notes on top of what is a slightly watered down wheat malt base. Could use a bit more flavor punch. Body is light with adequate plus carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel and finish. Overall all the hefe flavors are there but there's something missing from this that I can't put my finger on. Nonetheless a solid brew to have on a hot and humid Florida day out on the patio.
