Bottle brought back from Wisconsin. Pours yellow gold with a nice rocky white head that lasts and plenty of bubble trails. Aroma and taste of banana, clove, and orange. Clear and assertive. I can see why it’s rated highly for this style- wish I had a few more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
