COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy golden, w/ lots of carbonation, Ebelweiss has lots of banana & clove on the nose & palate. It has the crispness of a good wheat beer but does finish w/ a bit of sourness on the tongue. This is a real thirst-quencher.

Nice soft banana and clove aromas exude from the orange body with little head. Unfortunately, the rest of the beer doesn't live up. A little too sweet and really quite thin, this beer matches the others from this brewery, which are all too thin and uneventful. A decent wheat, but I've had others that are better.

Very nice wheat. Not quite the mouth feel of a true German beer. Unfiltered cloudyness, nice spicey, fruity taste. A better yeast would perhaps put this one as top U.S. brewed weiss...? Or maybe fresh from the vat.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Hazy golden color with a very white fizzy head. Great yeasty, spicey aroma. Wheaty, banana flavor that's smooth and somewhat creamy. Slight vanilla in the finish.

Citrus aroma. Cloudy with a head that disappears quickly. Flavor of citrus fruit and some floral taste. A little sour on the finish. Thick and full bodied and refreshing.

Light tawny amber color with little head. Nice clove and banana flavors. Quite sweet. Decent body/mouthfeel.

This is what I think of when I remember Weiss beers. Yeastly, full of clove and honey sweet. Classic weiss beer.

Wow, for a wheat beer this has character. The banana is very prevalent both in the nose and the finish. This would be great on a hot summer after a long day on the bike.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2003 Great beer. Though not quite as good as a Europian weiss beer this is superb and the very best domestic German styles wheat. Very fruity and slightly sweeter then other weiss beers. Bananna and almond flavors are present but when I went on tour there I found they do not add this. It is all in the way the beer is prepered.

Refreshingly citrusy/wheaty aroma. Malt is a strong orange/clove/banana flavor. Slight spice but not very yeasty...a bit too carbonated perhaps. Not perfectly smooth but above average flavor for a wheat. Banana notes in the finish.
