For some reason the original, wandering narrative at the start of the post has gone; It was saying something to the effect that I am not a great fan of weizen beer, but I am always open to suggestion, or something like that
|The Beer||Two Brothers – Ebel’s Weiss; 4.9%abv, 12IBU, 12.9°|
Fresh combination of wheat, vanilla, light malts and some fresh orange
very clean, crisp, clear gold with not much in the way of a head; plenty of bubbles rising
a very crisp, clean taste that has strong elements of wheat, some malt, vanilla and cloves; light-medium bodied, a little water which makes it quite fresh (especially when cold); quite lively, maybe a little too lively; doesn’t feel as strong as the almost 5% would suggest; it is supposed to have banana, I was getting clove-orange.
Very satisfying. I am not a great fan of hefeweizen, but this is very good to stick with during the summer. The flavours really enhance the beer – I love the cloves and vanilla. Eventually got the banana when I belched.
