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.

Thanks to Chris for bringing it over! Nice fresh wheat and hop-nose. The beer starts fresh and nice. Sweetish Weizen notes, no yeast but fresh hops. Sweetish-fresh, nice piney hops. Dryer ending, but still a Kristallweizen dry-hopped. Intense sweetish Weizen-ending with no bitterness.

Patrickctenchi (4535) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: Clear gold with a tall, frothy white head. Citrus, wheat, yeast, banana aroma. Taste is sweet lemon, banana, slightly spiced... Very bright and refreshing....the lively citrus matches nicely with the wheat.....hopped-up, and blended really well. Great stuff.

Bottle. Bright yellow with thick white head and substantial lacing. Earthy pine aroma with moss and anise notes. Smooth wheat and pine hops upfront. Body is a bit watery. Some earthy pine hops with oil and licorice notes in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Chris for bringing this to Deutschland! Pours a beautiful light golden color and a tan/cream color. The smell is wheat, hops. The taste is herbal, wheat, grapefruit ending dry and crisp. Light with nice, fine carbonation.

Bottle courtesy of Falco242. Sweet in the front. Wonderful German weissbier finish. Only other hopped weissbier I remember having is the Schneider- Brooklyn collab Hopfenwriss. Just like that beer, this is delicious.

BeerInHeaven (227) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2015
pours a slightly murky straw gold with a thick white head. aroma is slight hay with a hint of sweet spice. The taste is pleasant but somewhat complex. hint of lemon citrus, some spice, and a little sweet malt. Some modest hop bitterness fades in lightly. Actually quite refreshing. I could see sessioning this on a hot summer day. Good beer!

Kind of spicy, like a saison. There's a little burst of cinnamon at first, and then a cavalcade of flavors start to flow. Lively. A pillowy head sits atop a bright orange body. Very nice. Might pair really well with some cheese, but sadly I don't have any. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
