COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you dream of wheat this brew will get your toes tapping. Since 1995 we have brewed Bavarian style wheat beers exclusively for the same great state that grows and malts our own Wisconsin wheat. In a world full of posers this is a true hefe-weizen naturally 100% bottle fermented and hazy.

Expect this beer to cascade effervescent into your glass. The rich spicy clove and cinnamon notes will greet your nose while sweet fruit and wheat kisses your lips.

Lick the foam from your mouth and admit sometimes you just gotta get up and dance.

Smell is incredible! Fresh, balanced, excellent yeast character, with some clove and banana flavors. Color is a nice golden hazy color. Man, this is good. Lots of carbonation, creamy head. Mouthfeel is perfect, head retention is great. Everything about this beer sings. Finishes with banana, clove, and a chalky note. The flavors arenít all that different then other wheat beers, they just really come together fresh and meld so nicely. Finish also is tart and faint of hops with some cider apple flavors. There arenít any weak spots in this cowboy.

This is so good. Aromas of fresh banana, a hint of citrus, and beautiful warm spice notes. Flavors are banana, citrus, cinnamon. So refreshing and flavorful

MacBoost (1261) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from trade. Pours a cloudy light orange with a large white head. Aromas of sweet artificial banana flavoring and not much else. Taste is slightly spicy, and semi dry. Flavors of clove-y banana esters from the yeast along with some other spice, perhaps a touch of white pepper. Not exactly the cleanest beer in the world, but it petes pretty good. Medium-high boost which is completely masked. Standard German type weizen, although Iím not sure wh th bock part comes in. Good.

I like wheat beers but this is not what I had expected. I prefer the wheat ales like Washington Island Wheat from Capital Brewery.

Syndicate (86) - Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2014
pretty excited to taste this after Tobys review of this. First off this was very overcarbonated which bummed me out but the head receded soon enough. Poured a hazy golden color with a much too large head. Nose was pale malts and lemon zest. Tasted like a nice summertime beer. Wheat plays out nicely with the tartness of the lemon. There is also some light funk that i didnt expect but mixes in great. This was nice

Bottle. Simple and refreshing all-around great wheat beer. A smooth cherry-banana bread flavor accented with cloves and spice.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-29-14. Yeasty aroma features scents of bubblegum, banana bread, and chlorine. Pretty good hefeweizen/weizenbock smell. Thereís not a lot to the smell, but it is pleasant. The aroma is on the dry side for the style. Pours a hazy bronze or medium tan with a moderate amount of beige head. Produces short-lasting lacing. Flavors of lemon and white vinegar. Tastes sharper and tarter than is typical for the style. Banana bread aftertaste. Lively, dusty, frothy palate. Good palate for the style, but the body is too light to stand out among all beers. Overall, New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat is actually a below average American hefeweizen, if one considers it that, and an even further below average weizenbock and stands as a major disappointment. I love a good German-style wheat beer in the summer, and I had heard this is a great one, but it is not even close to that reputation. This stands as another disappointment from a brewery with a ton of goodwill among craft beer fans but that struggles to produce outstanding beers aside from their truly special fruit concoctions and a small proportion of their Thumbprint Series brews.

Pours a nice amber with a thick head. There is a fruity smell to it. The taste is nice and sweet with a banana-ish flavor and a slight bitter finish. If you like wheat beer, try this. If you donít like wheat beer, try this. Itís a really good beer.

markducommun (190) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Cloudy, yellow-orange with a fair amount of white head. Smells overwhelmingly of orange, melons. Lightly grassy. Quite sweet, some bitterness lasting through the finish. Medium finish, not quite light body, very effervescent. Exceedingly well balanced. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
