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...

Appearance - Cloudy, light-amber, with a golden yellow hue. Looks like foggy urine. Not the most appetizing color for a beer, but I'll take it. Looks heavily carbonated too.

Smell - Smells like beer - the stereotypical smell one would equate to beer. Grainy, subtle hints of aromatic hops, but not a lot to say.

Taste - Tastes heavily grainy, not as bitter as evident from the carbonation, but has a strange, smoky aftertaste to it. Not bad, but nothing special.

Mouthfeel - The heavy carbonation stings a bit, and that's probably the beer's only glaring issue.

Ebel's Weiss is nowhere near the aesthetically sublime and delectable qualities set forth by Two Brothers' Domaine DuPage. It's my first Hefeweizen beer, but if this sets the course for the style, I'm not sure how active I will be in exploring it.
