COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you dream of wheat this brew will get your toes tapping. Since 1995 we have brewed Bavarian style wheat beers exclusively for the same great state that grows and malts our own Wisconsin wheat. In a world full of posers this is a true hefe-weizen naturally 100% bottle fermented and hazy.

Expect this beer to cascade effervescent into your glass. The rich spicy clove and cinnamon notes will greet your nose while sweet fruit and wheat kisses your lips.

Lick the foam from your mouth and admit sometimes you just gotta get up and dance.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark gold with a finger of white head. Aroma of wheat and clove with a hint of banana. Taste is medium sweet. Wheat and banana with clove and spices. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Another great New Glarus brew.

Hazy yellow color with a fairly high amount of carbonation and filmy head. Aroma of cloves, banana, wheat, and pale malts. Flavor is bananas, pale/pils-malts, cloves, bubblegum, and wheat. Body is light and has a crisp feel. Excellent hefeweizen style beer overall!

Bottle at home, courtesy of Eric. Thanks man!! Pour is lightly hazy golden orange with a big white head and great lacing. Big musty, lemon peel, citrusy, banana, clove, doughy, sweet bubblegummy, zesty aroma. Taste is banana, doughy, biscuity, fresh citrus, coriander, white pepper, somewhat musty, and clove with a big spicy finish. Medium body with high carbobation. Awesome Hefeweizen and hard to believe it comes in 6-packs. Nice stuff.

Hazy gold with a lush, foamy white head. The aroma is so stylistically perfect that its rediculous; lovely clove and cinnamon notes mix with an earthy clean wheat tone with a lightly dusty banana ester. Flavor is creamy and smooth, with a rich doughy body bringing perfect amounts of earthy wheat, pale pilsner malts, cinnamon, clove, and a kiss of banana on the bready finish, with a touch more clove. Iíve never tasted a cinnamon note in a hefe before...I was skeptical about not only another hefeweizen, but RateBeerís "Best" hefe in the world...but Iím a believer now! This is an incredible brew, the benchmark against all other hefeweizens.

Bottle from Woodmanís Onalaska. Pours yellow and cloudy with two inches of white foam. Lots of banana and clove on the tongue. Banana and clove are joined by bubblegum on the tongue. Itís fantastic. Itís one of the few that belong in the same conversation as Weihenstephanerís hefe.

This beer is redolent of wheat and wheat character dominates flavor as well. There is a surprising level of acidity which is quite appealing. This is a considerably unique beer.

12 oz. bottle that I picked up in Wisconsin during my recent road trip to Yellowstone. Pours a mostly clear gold with a moderate-large white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of wheat grain with notes of lemon and banana. The flavor has ample wheat grain that is complimented by lemon. Very crisp and refreshing beer. Medium bodied. This is one of the highest ratings I have given to a wheat beer. Excellent.

12 ounce bottle. Transparent gold with white foam that lingers as a residue. Husky wheat and lemon in the aroma. The taste is big and long lasting citrus and crisp grains. Medium bodied, smooth. Overall an excellent wheat that is bolder and bigger flavored than most within the style.

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 Iím not sure Iíll 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.
