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.

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.
