(11/11/2011) Poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint Glass, perfect 2 finger head with a great lingering fluffy white appearance.

A: Classic Belgian style wheat aroma, wheat with bananas and cloves to compliment. Slightly citrus in the back

C: Beautiful dark banana yellow color.

Sip: Banana flavors up front with a spicy clove and citrus finish. Light mouthfeel with big wheaty flavor.

OV: Classic Euro-style Weiss beer, extremely good beer and impressive among American Weiss beers.

12 oz bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Besy By 4/29/12. 15 IBU, 4.9% ABV.

A - Ebel's Weiss pours an effervescent yellow-orange hue that's slightly cloudy from a bottle-swirl and topped by a dense, creamy head. The slow departure produces thickly-caked lace all over the glass.

S - Ebel's Weiss greets you with a pleasant banana ester and sweet malts along with a faint citrus hint alongside clove. Soft wheat backs it all up but there's a strange spice note I can't put my finger on.

T - The mix of clove and light vanilla ice cream topped with smooth banana is fantastic! Sweet malts and light, dry wheat provide the malts for this delicious beer.

M - Creamy and smooth despite it's effervescence, Ebel's Weiss goes down very well. Light to medium in body, the wheat really softens the beer on the tongue.

O - Both a fantastic depiction of the style and a wonderful summer beer I could drink all day long, Ebel's Weiss is a delicate treat with plenty of flavor and equally as much refreshment.

Pours with a deep copper color and a head that falls quickly.
Odor is sour you smell some wheat. Maybe some banana as well.
Taste is of banana and some generic sweet flavor. Wheat also comes through pretty strongly. Sour taste comes as well.
Mouth feel is clean and crisp. Carbonation is strong and you can feel it as you drink.
Although I am not a fan of hefeweizen, this one is pretty good.

LooK: A cloudy very pale yellow color with golden hues. Small head forms and recedes to a small film.

Smell: Big time bubblegum and banana notes. Very much a wheat beer. Grainy, floral, some bubblegum with a sweetness.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Green banana flavors with a mild lemony aspect. Wheaty, and grainy, faint clove. There is a moderate bubblegum flavor, paired with an herbal and earthy bitterness. Clean and crisp, light to medium bodied brew. Highly carbonated, with a bite of carbonation.

Overall: A tasty, light wheat beer that would be a good choice in the warmer months. Its a decent hefe to say the least, quite standard.

A - Looks pretty nice with a 1/4 inch of slightly sticky head. Color is a hazy bright yellow.

S - Smells a bit spicier than typical offering so it might be more clove. A nice bit of banana, yeast, and wheat are easily detected.

T - I get a strong wheat taste and banana with just a slight touch of spicy clove. I really like the fruity yeast they used not as filling as some examples of the style. Sweet finish.

M - Light to medium as expected for the style.

Overall again it seems that availability makes this one suffer since I ordered it from new york (halftime beverages) but a very good offering if I ever see it come to PA I would pick up a six pack.
