Picked up a 6 pack in New Glarus coming back from a weekend trip to Madison. Pours a nice golden hue with a thick creamy head with notes of citrus and clove. Goes down with flavors mainly of banana coriander with a touch of hop bitterness. More complex than your standard Hefeweiss. Definitely good stuff from New Glarus Brewing.

Bottle thanks to Cloin at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, soap, peach, wheaten bread and banana. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, bready, wheat, banana bread, candy, bubblegum and light alcohol. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, but pretty drinkable stuff.

Tropical Croydonia Bottle Share. Thanks to the Bois. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry with modest fine carbonation. Dry wheaty malts bring mild creamy sweetness. Nice banana streak. Mild bubblegum. Trace of fruits on the back end. Semi dry finish. It’s fine.

Bottle @ Croydonia. Gold with a small eggshell white head. Nose of general honeyed bread and little else. Pretty inoffensive. Taste is similar. Bread, apple and pear fruit salad. OK.

Really enjoyed this beer. Wasn’t overpowered with hops and went down smooth.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
bottle courtesy of piscator34- clear golden straw, vibrant head and soapy lacing. nose- banana and clove, slight hops. taste- a bit muddled- the hops don’t really shine through and neither does the hefe aspect. Carbonation lively and quaffable enough. Mineral dryness on finish.

Clear light golden with an ample fine, light tan head. Light coriander, grassy, honey. Light bitterness and spice, sweet backbone. Light body, quicker watery finish, refreshing. Quite a lot of carbonation. Good.

Bottle. Orange-banana wheat malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant white fluffy head and mild effervescence. Sweet orange, banana, wheat malt, and orange peel. Nice body. A great beer

GIJOE (922) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Pale amber pour with a monstrous, pillowy, white head. Nose is lightly yeasty and sweet like a Belgian. Taste is much the same, but with a nice floral hop edge that's not typical of a wheat beer. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

piscator34 (2114) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle. Gold in colour with a bit of haze and strong carbonation. Aromas are of vanilla, lemon, bubblegum, and a bit of spicy orange. Thick wheaty body with a blend of traditional hefeweiss and some spicy-herbal almost Belgian pale ale flavors. Medium bodied. Tasted good, but didn’t really get any of the extra APA hop notes that I was expecting.
