Tasty! Poured with very little/no head; very nice golden color, I swear it nearly glows! Gorgeous aroma--citrus, a bit of spice, and I can definetly make out the banana the bottle claims. Very smooth, a carbonation tingle on the tongue, and a bit tart with the citrus. I like it! Easy drinking yet quite flavorful. This would be a perfect summer beer.

Pours an effervescent amber & pearl white head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Juicy fruit & cloves , white pepper

T: Follows the nose, a little white grape & a little Band-Aid up front. More juicy fruit & a little bit of cloves as this warms, faint hints of persimmons. Finishes fruity & with juicy fruit & cloves

MF: Medium bodied, light carbonation

A nice take on the style, not top shelf, but not too far off...

Cloudy amber-yellow with two fingers of white head; good duration and decent lacing on the glass; good start. Better nose than I expected--plenty of banana, vanilla, clove, and ginger--very impressive smell.

More sweet than spice on the taste, banana take charge in Ebel's. Yet the vanilla and ginger are well represented in support; delicious beer. The texture is terrific--light, effervescent, and pillowy, just the way a good Hefe should be. Ebel's is very good Hefe.

I'm a little embarrassed to say I've passed on Ebel's a few times, not because I wasn't interested but, rather, because I had a few other items in hand, and because other heavier styles had grabbed my attention. Ebel's is more than worthy of grabbing a sixer or two. In the warm weather, Ebel's will be an absolute delight.

Excellent Hefeweisen. Two Brothers has done an admirable job on this style, and deserves considerable praise.

Hazy straw gold under a cream colored foam cap. Bready nose and palate with banana, clove and vanilla. Medium to medium full body, medium to medium high carbonation. A very refreshing and easy to drink beer.

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.

Pour has a nice orange-golden color with a good unfiltered look. There is a nice white head, however it goes away fairly quickly.
Smell has a lot of things going for it for a hefeweizen. There is a the usual nice wheat and barley smells, but there is a nice addition of clove and vanilla to the usual banana smell of this style.
Taste is very good on this selection. Ebel's is a much sweeter taste than the average hefeweizen. The malty sweetness to the beer accentuated by the clove and banana tastes make it a nice drink.
Mouthfeel is very nice. The beer has a nice thickness, but keeps a crisp, refreshing feel at the same time.
Drinkability is always good on hefeweizens. Because of the crisp, refreshing bite to the mouthfeel, this beer would be an awesome session beer on a hot summer day. The sweetness gets to the tongue a little bit, but the taste is worth it. I was surprised by this beer. I hadn't heard much about it, but it was a very nice selection that makes me want to try more styles from the Two Brothers.
