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. 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

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 (2088) - 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.

New Glarus Crack’d Wheat Ale (now, New Glarus Hopster) has an extremely thick, spongy, off-white head, and a semi-clear, bubbly, golden appearance. Lacing is profoundly heavy. The aroma is an odd mix of citrus/pine hop resin with banana and coriander. Taste is of those elements, with sweet white bread and moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and New Glarus Hopster finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a clear yellow gold with some off white head. The aroma is pineapple, wheat, straw. Medium mouth, strong wheat, grass, yeast, light pepper, decent.

Atom (1675) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of banana and wheat, mild clove. Sweet taste banana, clove, and wheat, mild hop bitterness. Meh, the dry hopping isn’t making this any different from any other wheat ale.

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 30, 2015
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 (4604) - 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.

Carlisle (197) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2015
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

ThirstyBird (2013) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 27, 2015
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.
