3.45/5 rDev -5.7%
A - very clear, not cloudy at all
S - very fruity, bananas
T - very fruity. banana taste? It comes from the yeast they use. This is much more fruity than other beers of this style.
M - slight carbonation, not too much
O - pretty solid if you enjoy this style. if you don't care for fruity flavor then stay away

First had this many years ago, while on a long term hefe kick, since which i've moved on to many other styles. Ebel's was never a favorite, but 2 Bros wasn't freshness dated back then, and this is a fresher sample, still a couple months in code.
Murky golden orange with the yeast poured in, A finger or so of dense creamy white foam that leaves behind some lace and maintains a skim on the surface.
First whiffs of banana bread were pleasant, giving way to bubblegum and clove hints that aren't as pleasant to me personally, but it's true to style.
Flavors of wheat and clove, a slight sweetness, becoming astringent in the middle and dry in the finish. Astringency competes with the smoothness of the wheat, throwing things off a little. Slight banana aftertaste, but not really bursting with it. Still not my favorite hefe, not in the ballpark of Dancing Man or Weihenstephaner.

This has to be one of the best domestic (American) attempts at a straight-up Bavarian-style hefeweizen. What I focus on the most with it is its wonderful, dynamic, relatively complex aroma - banana bread dough, curiously extra-toasty/nutty granola-like malt, and light-moderate, yet vibrant, softly-spicy floral notes - just wonderful!
The taste mirrors the aromas well, with that malt character really giving the beer some depth (so it's not just fruity banana and clove esters) in flavor, but not quite as much in body as it needs - not that it's thin or too dry - it could just soar if it had a little more roundness and maybe a touch of honey (malt) flavor (could be due to the malt they use? is it domestic?)....
Pleasantly surprised at how drinkable and enjoyable and true to style it is. Maybe it just needs additional head-retention and body-enhancing proteins (flaked wheat?)...Either way, well done, sirs!

Appearance: Pours a golden, straw, orange color…hazily transparent, I can see a few bubbles bubbling up…some head formed when upon pouring, but nothing really reamians…could use a little life…(3.25/5)
Smell: Sweet, floral/herbal, vanilla, banana and clove…wheat, a touch of citrus (lemon and orange), yeast, grass…very malt based…smells like a classic Belgian style whit ale…lively and nice…(4/5)
Taste: Hefeweizen yeast, green banana, light/pale malts, wheat, a bit of bubblegum and clove…there’s an overall sweetness about it that’s nice…it’s not overly complex, but a refreshing brew that brings tons of flavor to the palate…light and mildly zesty, I’ve never had anything with banana in it that I’ve liked as much as this…(3.5/5)
Mouthfeel: Light body with medium carbonation…it definitely fluffs up a bunch bringing banana, yeast and light lemon bitterness to the palate…refreshing, light…(3.75/5)
Overall: This is a good brew…summertime, backyard barbeque, watching the Cubs day game on the porch TV (think college), hanging out with friends and hotdogs – this beer was made for those occasions…it’s light, refreshing, flavorful and super drinkable…definitely worth trying if you like this style or are looking to expand your horizons…(3.5/5)

Got this as a gift, looks promising. Served in a nonic.
A: Hazy, orange-gold color with a thing white line on the sides of the glass, that's about as far as it got for head and lacing.
S: Wheat, bit of citrus, but mostly grains
T: Fairly sweet, has floral and citrus qualities to it, tastes of yeast, wheat, malt sugars, and barley. Smooth and delicious flavor.
M: Medium amounts of carbonation, balanced fairly well with its sweet, floral flavors, has a fairly rich feel to it unusual for a light colored beer.
O: I really enjoyed this beer, good sweetness combined, fresh flavors, well worth a try
