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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

caesar (4897) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2013
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.

PhillyCraft (3101) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
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

writerljberg (635) - Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2013
12oz bottle 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.

48FanInCali (706) - California, USA - JUN 17, 2013
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.

Dragonfly1 (483) - Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Nice golden yellow and a big foamy head, champagne bubbles. This smells great, with huge bubblegum and light cinnamon spice. So far so good. Prickly carbonation is right up front, then this turns strangely dry all the sudden. Reminds me of a Duvel more than a creamy wheat. Dry finish and somewhat on the thin side.

akoeninger (397) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Hazy golden color. Loads of white foam. Lots of clove, banana, and cinnamon in the smell. Tastes sweet and spicy with a hint of banana in the end. Medium body, long finish. One of the best hefe-weizens I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
