  • Full disclosure: This is beer #2 in Two Bros 15 Beers for 15 Years. Have been in my basement since release in summer 2012.

    A: Deep Brown but clear. A small amount of tan, soft foam.

    S: Tree fruit (cherry and apple) with a touch of sour. Also some notes of euro brewery malts. All in all a pretty appealing smell.

    T: Definitely a hefeweizen cousin. the banana and clove are not overwhelming. And, I do like the malt flavors, toasted breadiness with the sweetness held in check.

    O: Decent brew, nothing off. Doesn't push any boundaries, a safe sessionable brew.

  • 2 of 15 for the 2012 15th Anniversary releases.

    Pours somewhat clear as the darkness shades. Light tan foam doesn't even cover. Retention can't exist when there isn't foam. No lacing.

    Aroma is banana, yeast, wheat and hints of dark fruit poking through as cherry. Sweet.

    Taste is more of the same. Wheat and banana are big up front. Yeast adds a touch of clove. Dark cherry and maybe prune add complexity.

    Medium body with mild carbonation.

    Not real familiar with the style making it difficult to grade this one. Would really like to have an authentic version to test again. There is a residual sweetness on the nose and mouth that doesn't fit well. Enjoy!
