the bottle states that due to the beer being unfiltered, it will be hazy/cloudy, but this is not the case. does not look like your standard german weiss. it is a clear straw in color as opposed to the cloudy, glowing german weiss beer. the bouqet does stand up in respect to style, with fresh bread, banana, and clove notes. taste does as well, with the sweet malts dominant. it doesn't have enough crispness to balance that i associate with this style, however. the mouthfeel is where this really differs...the top german weiss beers have that chewy, crisp, full mouthfeel that this doesn't...it's not bad, not great, just different. if this was hopped up with some citrusy hops like GBH it would make all the difference for an american wheat. still, at this abv and being a pretty tasty beer the drinkability is good on a warm summer night.

golden, like molsen claims to be. smells kind of wheaty and citrusy. taste is sweet and citrus tinged. lots of sour wheatiness too. like a european hefe, but tangier. tang is actually slightly off-putting. probably a refreshing beer in the summer, but i can't see buting it again to find out. one bottle in our sixer was very vinegary and terrible, but i won't hold that against the beer overall.

A: average white head that disappears quickly. Very little lacing.Totally cloudy and looks like apple juice.

S: Cloves and bready malt. Minor fruity smell (banana). Smells of a traditional german hef, just more subdued.

T: Wow, i'm surprised, and not in a good way. Nothing but a mild malt characteristic follows the nose. I am getting a little yeasty funk but there isn't much else here.

M: Watered down, below average carbonation. Tastes like a funky bud light.

O: Dissapointed for sure. I popped this today, sunny and 70 degrees, sat out on the deck, and was looking forward to a nice cold beer. It's good enough to finish, but I'm glad I only bought one. I'll move onto something better next.

I bought a single bottle of this from Woodman's in North Aurora, IL for $1.50 in Fall 2010.

A really nice beer from Illinois. It pours a light golden color as you take in the aroma of bananas. There is a very good banana/wheat taste to it that make for very smooth and easy drinking. Only thing stopping this beer from being fantasic is it could use a little more carbonation.

A - White head standing about an inch tall and perfectly white. The body is a hazy, dingy orangish-brown.

S - The aroma is inviting. There's a wheat scent accented by orange and oak.

T - The sweet wheat flavor is tasty.

M - The brew has a watery feel to it with little texture otherwise.

~ This is a drinkable brew. The flavor makes this one that might make it a tasty treat on the boat during the summer months.

Pours with a deep copper color and a head that falls quickly.
Odor is sour you smell some wheat. Maybe some banana as well.
Taste is of banana and some generic sweet flavor. Wheat also comes through pretty strongly. Sour taste comes as well.
Mouth feel is clean and crisp. Carbonation is strong and you can feel it as you drink.
Although I am not a fan of hefeweizen, this one is pretty good.

Ebel's Weiss Beer is an orange colored brew, pretty cloudy, small white head which leaves a slight trail. The aroma is pretty standard for a hefe, with clove spice, soft grainy wheat, a touch of banana and maybe a bit of lemon zest in there as well. It's a nice tasting hefe, it seems they put together a pretty good beer here. Light wheat grains, mild on the banana, clove spice, bready, some vanilla, fairly hoppy, bubblegum. Pretty much all the classic hefe flavors are in there, and it does a pretty good job managing them all. Fairly full-bodied and somewhat sharp on the tongue, quite refreshing.
