Pours from the bottle to a hazy golden yellow with thin white head that lingers well and leaves okay lacing. Nose is a very strong and pleasant spicy clove, cinamon, wheat and bread dough. Mouthfeel is tingly from the spices and medium-bodied, with a little bit of biscuit chewy. Taste is a reflection of the spices in the nose, and the finish is long, spicy and thirst quenching. A darn good beer.

Hopster bottle pours clear golden amber with a thick white ice cream float style head and lacing. Aromas of cloves, citrus, and spices with a hint of banana. Flavor is slightly sweet and a mild pepperiness. Tasty wheat.

Bottle pours dull-gold with a huge, persistent head characteristic of NG’s bottle conditioning. Clean, lemon-lime notes on the nose, balanced bittering/aroma ho finish. Overall, a solid wheat ale.

Bottle from Brunos via the lake beer fridge. Pours a bright yellow with the trademark large foamy hefeweiss head. Nose is hops and bready wheatness. Excellent...reminds me of another hoppy whest from NG....Dancing Man...will have more.

Medium on the palate creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, clove, bubblegum, some pine hop bitterness, some grapefruit citrus, with a citrusy hop finish. Very tasty. An amazingly interesting beer.

This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a foamy, white head. The aroma is sweet, malty with a touch of hops. The taste is grainy, dry, and finishes with slight bitterness. Simple and complex all at the same time. Worth your while to give this one a try while you can.

akoeninger (518) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2015
This is an awesome beer! Golden in color aroma of clove, earthy, fruit, spices, and citrusy hops. Flavor is floral, fruity, bubble-gum, clove, and spicy citrus hops. The finish is crisp, lively, and refreshing. The Amarillo really stands out in the finish/after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"now that’s what I’m talkin about!!! an amarillo dry hopped bavarian hefe - what a great idea. Another New Glarus beer that defies the norm. The aroma of this beer was just great - bubble gum, clove, spice, fruity...and hops. Wonderful. The look is fairly standard for a wheat, but combined with the enticing aroma, it was quite inviting. Like the alt, this one was bottle conditioned and had a nice slightly chewy body and the bubble gum-hop-clove flavor was very good as well. One of the best, most unique wheats I’ve ever had."
