Another score from The Friendly Greek, one of my local bottle shops!

From the bottle: "Our Anniversary Brew"; This classic Belgian-style White Beer is brewed with unmalted wheat, a touch of oats, and then traditionally spiced with coriander and orange peel for a crisp, refreshing taste and spicy aroma."; "Two Brothers is a craft brewery on the outskirts of Chicago that specializes in rare and seldom-brewed beer styles. The two of us - Jason and Jim Ebel - strive to produce the very best beers available anywhere."; "We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!"

My aggro our initially created two fizzy fingers of bone-white head, but it quickly reduced to wisps. Nose had a definitive wheat odor, along with a peppery spiciness and a light mustiness. Color was a hazy golden-yellow (SRM = 4 - 5), but it was apparently too hazy for the likes of Midas, Mammon and Croesus, since they never showed up. Mouthfeel was light, spritzy and quite effervescent. The taste was lemony, with a black pepper bite and the effervescence gave it a soda pop-like quality. Finish was semi-dry and very refreshing on a hot, humid afternoon. I would not want it all the time, but on this occasion, it was just right.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a rather hazy goldenstraw with a modest head; a few strands of lace are left

Smell: Cookie dough aromatics with cardamom and a bit of citrus peel

Taste: Fruit forward, with the cookie dough underneath; the cardamom and citrus peel build through the middle; the finish is crisp and fruity, as well

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A refreshing wit; not the top one on the market but not too shabby, either

I really like this beer. It is crisp and refreshing.

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a weizen glass. Best by date 7.6.13.

Look- clear, pale color. Dense lacing, pretty head.

Smell- clean, not very strong clove and light malt.

Taste- Light and fresh, very clean. Mild in spiciness with a bit of sweetness. Light crisp aftertaste. Not too strong, not too mild.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium body. A bit of carbonation, crisp and smooth.

Overall - Very good, refreshing. A great refreshing beer.

This is a really refreshing wheat beer. It has a great refreshing smell. If you like wheat beer this has the traditional wheat beer color and smell and taste. A nice cloudy golden yellow with a good inch thick white head. Nice and bubbly, very refreshing. I've had lots of wheats and i'd say it's pretty average for a wheat beer but not a bad brew, certainly would be great on a hot day.
