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.

Bottle supplied by eaglefan, thanks Brian! Pours a large white head, excellent retention with minimal lacing. Hazy gold colored ale. Solid appearence. Nose of bananna, yeasty, doughy and lightly fruity. Body is a tad thin, watery, lightly creamy, but will do in a pinch i guess. Medium sweet maltiness backed by a pleasent fruitiness, bananna, a hint of apple, lightly spicey, clovey and some caramel malts hiding in there also. Fairly dry fruity finish. A solid Hefe for sure. Unfortunately,,, Hefes just dont rock my world much any more. Thanks again Brian!

Many thanks to Skyview for letting me bum a bottle of this off his most recent Wisconsin trip. Very cloudy yellow color with a medium head. Holy freaking banana aroma! Ever made banana bread and had a pile of mushed bananas in front of you? Yeah, jam your face into it; that’s more or less what this smells like. Significant wheat aroma, too. Oh man... Sweet banana, orange, lemon, wheat and slight cloves all blend together magically. Thick and creamy mouthfeel. Dan Carey of New Glarus, you are the rock god of wheat beers. Wheat may not be my favorite style, but I would almost be willing to give up Imperial Stouts for life if I could drink an infinite lineup of New Glarus wheat beers. Okay, maybe not that extreme, but getting damn close.

Cloudy amber-orange with a big pillowy head. Aroma of wheat, cinnamon and sweet fruit. Flavor is smooth and sweet with lots of clove and bananas. Crisp, peppery, fruity finish. A very nice wheat.

Hazy orange with a thick white head. Nice wheat aroma with lots of phenols and esters to the nose. Strong banana and clove flavor with a dry slightly tart finish that hase some citrussy aftertaste.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Pours a cloudy light orange color with a rather large head. Aroma of banana, cloves, and light citrus. Nicely carbonated, beautiful sweetness. This is everything that a hefeweizen should be.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 12oz bottle. Pours a pale amber with a healthy off-color head. Aroma is dominated by hops with some subdued notes of malt, grain, and spices. Taste is crisp, carbonated, and medium-bodied with flavors of citrus, sour fruit, spice, and grains. Excellent summer brew and one of the best hefeweizen’s I can recall.

Elizavyeta (110) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Pours with an impossibly strong head and murky dark orange hue. Notes of apple pie, wheat, and honey come through clearly with a sweet, lingering presence on the palate. While ales are usually best suited for fall/winter, Dancing Man would be a fine addition along side of sausages and gouda.

12oz bottle, courtesy of Monger. Thanks, James!! Pours a hazy, yellowish-orange color with some effervescence from below; perfect, textured off-white head with great retention and lacing; just beautiful. Generous, wheaty and banana-driven aroma; sweet and estery, with a very light, warming clove presence; seemed a little overripe at first. Creamy, dense texture: chewy bananas and cloves in a very fruit-forward hefe; while the wheat shows prominently in the nose, there’s more chewy bananas and esters in the mouth, well-balanced by a light peppery yeast and dry cloves; just an excellent drinkability, this was finished way too quick (my wife didn’t help matters). I love this style when it’s done well. Lengthy, dry clove and banana finish.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Aroma is strong banana, cloves, and citrus/lemon. Opaque dark yellow color with a big foamy frothy shaving cream like head. Flavor of spice, citrus, banana and malty overtones. Creamy orange notes with a bitter citrus finish. Has a strong bitter orange peel like flavor on the duration. Palate is creamy with a light dry duration. Very good hefe. As good as the best German varieties.

Bottle from brewfiend, and what a treat this sucker was!!! Pour was totally authentic, and I started it thinking it was just an American wheat… Nice cloudy yeasty yellow pour, nice head, solid lacing throughout. The aroma was wonderful fruity esters combined with some excellent phenolic cloves and even a cinnamon touch was detectable (w/o reading the bottle!). Flavored followed suit, and this was every bit as good as a fresh hefe (a sweeter take, think Franziskaner) right in Bavaria, fruity banana esters, clovey spicey balance, light wheat base, yeasty touch to the finish. Thanks for this one, Brad, maybe my best American-produced Hefe to-date!
