3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big fan of New Glarus, tried this in a make your own six pack. Dark gold color and a bit of a metallic taste gives way to a pleasing aftertaste. Has some enjoyable spicy elements but I’m not sure I’ll grab another round. Too many other great wheat beers out there- but if you find it on tap in Wisconsin you may be happy with a taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma of banana, bubble gum, and spices that is just right. Tons of carbonation on the pour, settles nice and slow...dark gold in color with frothy white head. Fresh wheat, sweet fruit/banana, and fruity spice gets cut at the right time with a spicy mild bitterness from the hops that finishes with a mild spicy, peppery burn that urges you for another sip to douse it out with the sweetness. I hope the hefe in my fermenter turns out this good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours with an extremely thick head that doesn't appear to dissipate. Hardly any aroma at all (maybe a little bit of bubble gum?). High carbonation on the mouth - almost overpowers the initial taste. Once the carbonation fades, subtle undertones of apricot, bubble gum, and acidic battery acid. Reminds me of sticking your tongue on a 9 volt battery to check to see if it still has a charge in it.

A very enjoyable hefe-weizen. Nice gold and cloudy appearance, with a nice head. Hints of clove, cinnamon and banana. The only complaint, that keeps this brew from a 5 score, is that it is a little watery. Otherwise, a great offering from New Glarus.

Bottled. Hazy golden color, short head. Aroma of banana, hint of clove, grapefruit. Quite bitter, bit sweet. Bit too bitter for the style, but i like the combination. Nice stuff.

Had an old bottle at least 4 to 6 years. And it didn't age well. Yuck. Need to try it fresh.

Smells and pourz like Hacket Pschorr. Taste is more bitter and metallic than expected. Gets better as it warms. Nice cherry aftertaste.

Bottle with Keith. Pours hazy golden with light head, notes of honey, lemon, clove, wheat, belgian spice. Taste is same. Body was too full and carbonation was light. Remember this being better a few years ago? Eh

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head. Leaves some residual legs.
N: Clove, banana, cinnamon. Plenty of malt sweetness through the nose. Peppercorn spice.
T: Somewhat spicy with a long bitter finish tucked over the malt and grain. Really nice for such a light beer.
M: Somewhat fluffy and filling/bready.
O: Really impressive for the style. I think this would make Weihenstephaner proud.

Bottle. Hazy pour with some head and a little retention. Nose of yeast, cloves, banana esters, and fruit. Taste follows the nose with a little bubble gum tossed in. Good Hefe but not Live Oak.
