Currently my favorite beer. Love the flavor notes of banana and vanilla. Lite, crisp, and refreshing.

Sampled yesterday on 1/25/15. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "CHEERS-BOSTON" handled glass stein.

Pours a hazy honey in color with a thin white cap. Some decent lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of yeast and grains for the most part. More going on with the taste as there is some vanilla, clove and hint of banana also. Smooth to drink and goes down easy with no harsh or bitter aftertaste. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. A tasty brew!

I do not eat bananas. It is one of the few foods, and the only fruit I can think of, that i truly do not enjoy. Yet, with this beer, I found the strong banana flavoring incredibly enjoyable. The pour is a little disappointing, with little head and a pale yellow color that I found unpleasant before tasting. However, I loved how it felt, and the smell and taste were very good.

Many solid reviews have already been done, so I'll leave it here. I just wanted to chime in and note that I did not find the banana to be too strong, I loved the lightness of the beer, and it came across as a good, traditional weiss beer with a good balance of flavors -- good stuff!

Andrea: Nice and light. Subtle banana flavor. Refreshing, and if possible, a little creamy? Would drink again.

Ryan: Had a sip of Andrea's. Her description fits mine. Would drink again.

decent beer, but this is a far cry from the best beers i have had from these guys. its a little thin and flat in the glass, and it shows in the mouthfeel too. i usually like a brightly carbonated hefe with some body, and this is neither of those, which really hurts it for me. the flavors are nice though, the yeast is subtle but still distinct, and the grain base is light enough to make this an easy session beer, especially with an abv under 5%. others have said this is overly yeasty, lots of esters, spice, bubblegum, all of that. i disagree, as my beer (draft) was pretty minimal on all of that. its flavor and yeast complexion were not the issues, it tastes fine, its the mouthfeel that lags in this one for me. still, i find their beers compelling and interesting most of the time, and this doesnt hurt my overall impression of two brother much, it just needs some bubbles. a nice food beer as it is though.
