Hazy straw color , lots of carbonation, a couple fingers of white head that is gone fast

Very fruity smell, one of the first times it picked up pronounced bananas from a weisbeer

Fruity taste but light enough to be refreshing

A bit of substance on the mouth

a nice enough wheat beer

Very cloudy pale yellow body, non-uniform but velvety white head, good ambient carbonation. Solid 'MEH' bottle art. Nose has some delicious nutty banana and warm vanilla, but plagued by a minor metallic note. Taste steps back a bit, in both power and clarity, and still has that metallic flaw. Bready throughout. Clove is very mild. Thin body, even for the style, but pleasant tickling/prickly carbonation.
All in all, one of my favorite widely available (locally at least) beers, especially of this style, even edging out some true German hefe's. It has a minor flaw here and there, but still a great brew.

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.

Ebel's Weiss is the best American version of a Hefeweizen or Weizen that I have tried, even better than Dreamweaver. It has the same characteristics of a Bavarian Hefe, except everything is toned down a little compared to drinking a Schneider or a Weihenstephaner. Lighter gravity and ever so slightly less flavor. It actually doesn't give up too much flavor as there is quite a bit of clove, banana, and bubblegum flavors; slightly floral as well, maybe it's the coriander. Didn't find it very estery and the mouthfeel is a lot like Dreamweaver to be honest. No alcohol taste. Overall, looks and tastes great!

12oz bottle. 8/23/15 code date. Appearance: Cloudy light golden, with minimal white head, especially for style. Aroma: Banana is strong, with some clove as well. Typical weizen yeast. Taste: Sweet, grainy maltiness, with a hint of banana and strong clove. Bitterness is minimal. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slight creaminess and slickness in the tongue. Carbonation is low for the style. Finish: Banane esters and clove phenols linger retro nasally long after the swallow. Overall: Great weizen yeast character. This serving is under carbonated for the style, but well wishing code date on bottle. Tastes good but a bit overly sweet, almost cloying
