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 at Leona's about two months ago... I was impressed then and I'm impressed now. After doing a bit of looking I see that the brewer makes several others and I will definitely be looking for them.

Appearance: Straw yellow with a hint of sunshine. Pale head that surprisingly stays for some time.

Smell: The bread/yeast scent is over powering at first and has an almost woody characteristic. Banana, coriander, clove, citrus come through next and are trailed closely by cinnamon of all things. Interesting.

Taste: Please see smell... Couldn't describe taste any different.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation level, full bodied, all around good.

Drinkability: The fact that I sat around last night and drank nearly a six-pack of them says something. This makes a good session beer and paired with the right foods... It could be great.

Overall, I recommend this beer and I will be going back to it again. If you are ever in the Chicago area give this one a try.

3.81/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Odor: Very floral and wheat like, maybe a touch of vanilla

Pour: Golden blonde color Light Head, dissipates quickly, unfiltered or very lightly filtered. Faint lacing. Served in a Hefeweisen glass

Taste: Tastes just like it smells. Rose or lily type taste. Not sweet flowery but floral. Secondary faint taste of vanilla with a mild wheat taste. Slight bitterness at the finish. Touch of light hops.

Opinion: Nice beer. Two Brothers is a great brewery that likes to experiment with various beer styles. This is definitely an American hefeweisen. I notice the difference between American and Belgian Hefeweisens is that the American style seems to imitate a general wheat beer where as the Belgian want to work at creaminess and banana overtones. I think this to be a characteristic of the wheat used but that's just my thought. Someone smarter than I am probably knows the real answer. Definitely an interesting beer though. I have had beers that smelled very floral, but this one actually tasted of actual flowers. Definitely a beer you could drink a few of.

3.58/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Hazy golden-yellow with a lively, bubbling body. No much head on this one, discouraging for a heffe

S: Sweet,estery banana aroma, traces of lemons and bit of hoppiness.

T: Mix of bananas and other citrus fruits with a dash of honey and spices, finishing into a soft fruity bitterness that lingers lightly in the back of your throat.

M: Very light, mellow body with some bite from the carbonation

D: Extremeley drinkable, think the flowers on the label demonstrate perfectly the feeling this beer conveys. Goes down smooth and lingers just long enough.

Outstanding. Just outstanding.
Pours a dark yellow, almost gold and the clove-wheat smell is immediate. The taste is perfect hefe. Two Brothers is doing good things in the area and this one tops them all. Had it in bottles previously, but on tap it becomes something much, much better.

This beer is definately a Hefeweizen, although not as flavorful as it's german brothers. The drinkability is definately better than your typical Hefe as it is much more smooth. I would call it a light Hefeweizen if there was such a thing.

The pour came with a nice golden color. It is citrus like with a hint of clove. The spicy finish is pleasant. The head was minimal with hardly any lacing.

(11/11/2011) Poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint Glass, perfect 2 finger head with a great lingering fluffy white appearance.

A: Classic Belgian style wheat aroma, wheat with bananas and cloves to compliment. Slightly citrus in the back

C: Beautiful dark banana yellow color.

Sip: Banana flavors up front with a spicy clove and citrus finish. Light mouthfeel with big wheaty flavor.

OV: Classic Euro-style Weiss beer, extremely good beer and impressive among American Weiss beers.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour: Very wheat-gold with about 1 inch of head. Not a lot of sediment, though a decent amount of haze.

Smell: A hint of vanilla, but is not strong and doesn't follow through in the taste.

Taste: Light banana notes. Its subtle and a bit dry on the back end.

Overall: Sessionable Whitt, but nothing too exciting.

Available on our in-home four-tap draft system 24/7. Poured frequently.

Ebel's Weiss is constantly available at the local liquor store, and my wife and I have chosen it to be on our first tap year-round. We like it, our neighbors like it, and it's a genuine crowd pleaser.

This beer is a great example of the hefeweizen style -- cloudy, light, drinkable, and with a great aroma.

On draft, Ebel's Weiss is a fantastic beer in summertime or any time.

a A dark caramel color. Cloudy but with very little head. The color of the beer far outweighs the lack of head.

s: Coriander and orange peel.

t High orange peel flavor.

m nice bite of carbonation

d I really like this beer.

Poured into a Tulip glass. Very nice to get the aroma out.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2 | overall: 4.5

Golden yellow appearance, a bit cloudier than most hefes I've seen.

Very pleasant, large aroma of bananas with some faint clove and citrus.

Smooth, prominent banana esters, finishes with the usual clove with a faint hint of some citrus. Very drinkable!

The mouthfeel was this beer's only real flaw. Could use a bit more carbination to give more body.

Overall a very good hefeweizen in the traditional Bavarian style. Good to see a domestic microbrew making this stuff instread of a boring American Wheat Ale.
