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.

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.

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

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.
