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

Appearance: Orange, red, pink hues all mixed together. Decent foam and good lacing. Cloudy as hefeweizens should be.

Smell: Cloves, pepper, and some banana. Nothing wrong with this.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Perfect mix of cloves, banana, pepper, and...bubblegum. Very very smooth and delicious.

Drinkability: Pretty thick beer thats easy to drink.

Overall: A good textbook hefeweizen.

Into a pint glass, pours a mostly clear amber color with a nice starter head, nothing later. Nose is a bit estery, some wheat malt evident, some spice, decent. The taste follows suit, hitting all that would be expected, but really nothing fancy. The mouth could've been a bit more full, but otherwise, this is a perfectly sessionable beer.

Hazy, orangish/straw color. The head quickly dissipates, and leaves no lacing. The aroma is strong of bananas, and clove, which also flows into the flavor. It is light in body, and has a bit of a carbonic bite on the tongue. Overall, a light, refreshing, easy drinking brew. Definitely a good summer beer.

12 ounce bottle. This beer pours out a hazy golden color. The head is not as large as in most hefeweizens. The aroma has a lot of lemon and a little vanilla. Crisp and refreshing, but still has a full malt flavor, which many hefes are lacking. Has that banana clove flavor. Spicy flavor in the finish. Good drinkability. There's nothing really bad about this beer, but nothing to really get excited about either.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip (closest thing I have on hand to a weizen glass at the moment)

A: Pours out a honey tinted yellow and topped with a thick and cream two inch head that fades a bit as the beer goes along but retains some remnants of its former glory.

S: Less of that heavenly bubblegum and clove and more focused on a slightly floral, but generally "banana-bready" kind of aroma.

T/MF: If the aroma was lacking in bubblegum it certainly isn't in taste, that coupled with the above mentioned flavors of banana. No real traces of clove or other hefeweizen familiars but still pretty serviceable in the flavor department. Mouthfeel is quite solid, very robust and rather filing but not to the degree that it feels heavy or slick, an interesting feel indeed.

D: As far as the style goes I've had better, though it is not often I see six packs of hefeweizen available from many breweries so if you have a taste for this stuff in larger quantities and at a pretty affordable price it is hard to argue against this stuff.

Ebelweiss: very cloudy, with an orange haze. The aroma is very strong coming out of the bottle, with a very strong aroma of bananas. Very little head. Very unusual taste, starts out very strong with bready malts that gives way to a strong taste of yeast/bananas. Quite odd.

I've been really digging hefes lately. Here's a review of my 1st taste of two brothers version
A-fairly hazy with a finger of white head that quickly subsides into a ring on the pint glass. Color is golden with orange tint.
S-typical-cloves and banana, plenty of wheat
T-a lot like the aroma. Finish is a bit long with just a hint of bitterness
M-nice body with moderate levels of carboation
O- a solid hefe. Nice taste with an above average body. Biggest complaint is little longer finish than I would like

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

Appearance: Light golden look. Nothing special here. No head retention while drinking. LIght carbonation.

Smell: Bright yeast aroma. Comes off as a banana/mango smell. A lot of the traditional Hefe smell here, very pleasant. This was the strongest aspect of the brew.

Taste: Smooth front to this beer. The yeast guides through to the mild body of this brew. A banana, malt, nut flavor sticks on the palette.

Mouthfeel: Very light, this beer would be a good recommendation for someone getting into craft brews. The yeast fades away more then would be desired.

Overall: Solid. A starter brew for sure. Shows a lot of solid characteristics of a traditional Hefeweizen but I would definitely recommend other authentic German versions first for a similar or lower price.
