With nice, malty sweetness and a soft aroma of clove, vanilla and banana, this German-style hefe weizen is unfiltered for a glowing orange hue.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear brew with white head that soon fades. Good hefe aroma and good hefe taste - great for a hot summer day.

Notes from the Family Hefe Tasting. Pours like champagne or bubbly cider. No head at all. Aroma has grapes, and bananas & allspice. Taste is a clean grapey banana. 11.2 Finished last in the tasting, although I had it a touch higher than most.

Just found my notes on this. This was received in a trade with my cousin-in-law who lives in the Chicago area. Obviously, this was poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange color with a decent looking one and a half finger-ed white foamy head that once it died, there was barely any lacing. The smell had some apple/peach/banana-ness that was combined into a yeasty/estery/breadiness. Interesting, but unexpected. The taste was fairly sweet with the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a pretty good sessionability running about it. The carbonation is exceptionally smooth and subdued. This is not bad for the style and good for me. Overall, honestly, its not a bad beer, it just seems a bit different to me and I’m unsure if I’d actually have it again. Maybe if offered, but I probably wouldn’t seek it.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2014 On tap. Color is typical wheat with a decently fluffy head. Aroma is malt with a little fruit. Taste is malt and banana. Very good.

On draft at World if Beer in Tioga. Highly recommended by the waitress. Pours slightly cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head as expected for the style. Aroma is banana, clove, wheat malt, spicy and grassy hop presence. Flavor follows he aroma closely with big banana and clove notes on top of what is a slightly watered down wheat malt base. Could use a bit more flavor punch. Body is light with adequate plus carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel and finish. Overall all the hefe flavors are there but there’s something missing from this that I can’t put my finger on. Nonetheless a solid brew to have on a hot and humid Florida day out on the patio.

Two Brothers Ebels Weiss Beer misses the mark for this style. Lemony fruit aroma rising from a fizzy head and a hazy orange-yellow pour. The head disappears quickly -- disappointing given the hallmark of a Hefeweizen is a thick, fluffy white head. Taste is the expected combination of banana and cloves with some lemony notes. Finish is an uncharacteristic fizziness (much like a soft drink) that just doesn’t fit. Ebel’s Weiss might be different on tap, but it sure didn’t pour well out a bottle. It has potential but needs better execution.

commonmac (465) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pint pour at Republic in Uptown. Unbelievably good value at $3. Golden, slightly hazy color. Nice,lazy head with small but noticeable lacing. Wow, banana and more banana. Never tasted a hefe with so much banana. End is relatively OK but I’m not sure I can drink this one again. Like a beer fueled banana laffy taffy party.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Momo’s Pizza - on tap. Hazy medium golden with a sticky snow white head; nice web of lacing. Cloves and bananas in the aroma. Hearty flavor with nice coriander accents, some bubblegum sweetness, a touch of cloves. Rib sticking mouthfeel. Solid hefe - been awhile since I had one.

Bierkrug (2132) - - MAR 15, 2014
On tap from ABC store in Fort Lauderdale. Pours a semi-clear gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is baked bananas, citrus and sweet fruit in the background. Taste is sweet overripe bananas, cloves, vanilla and some citrus. Palate is smooth and not tart like most North American versions of this German Classic. A good example of this beer style.
