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.

My other brew of choice at a Kane County Cougars minor league baseball game on a hot, humid night. Great family fun, and the Two Brothers tap is right behind my seats.

Pour is remarkably clear for a hefe, appearance is more in line with a Krystal Weiss. No head to speak of, due probably to the plastic cup it was served in.

Aromas of cloves and banana esters, which are also evident in the taste.

Mouthfeel is good, not too thin or heavy. Would make a good session beer on a hot night.

Everything was spot on, except for the absence of yeast haze, making for a classic german weiss beer.

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.
