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.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Top-notch HW. Fuller, stickier, more carbonated body then some of my other favorites in this style and a bit more spicy, including unusual cinnamon and mineral note in the finish.

New Glarus does so many things so well. This is a genuine Hefe. Cloudy gold in color. Clove aroma was very appealing. No gimmicks in the taste - jut a good hefe-weizen. Nicely carbonated, tart aftertaste. A very good beer. I canít believe this is 7% ABV. So easy to drink.

Man when Dan decides to perfect something he goes all out. This one is hazy pale orange-yellow. Full spice aroma with yeasty banana/little clove but tons of flavor. Great in the mouth, like a banana cream pie. A big beer for a wheat.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2008 Pours a golden cloudy color with thick bubbly head that fades quickly. Aroma is of clove, banana, slight cinnamon, and I swear that I smelled a touch of smoke. Taste is surprisingly the same but with more of an emphasis on an unripe banana and some light citrus flavors. This is a bit different then other hefeweizens. It’s very similar to the Imperial Weizen New Glarus put out, without the hop character. While last year I wasn’t impressed with this one, the condemnation I got from my brother is well deserved. Because this year, this stuff freaking rocks.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 Poured into my new freebie Sam Adams glass. Beautiful pour. Hazy medium gold with a massive white frothy head. Aroma and flavor is big spice, clove, wheat, bananna. It reminds me more of a Belgian style. What a great beer. A big mouthfeel and a nice spicy finish. This has turned into my favorite New Glarus beer. It is just so damn drinkable.

Pours a hazy golden brown with plentiful white head. Think wiess, think summer, yet this is full and rich enough to enjoy year round. Have tasted a number of weiss beers and this is the best to date.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Cloudy, orange amber color. Smell of bannanas, yeast, sugar, clove, pepper, minor wheat, caramel and lemon meringue pie. It also smells like a Runts, bannana candy. Taste of yeast, bannanas, lemons, pie crust, malt, tartness, bread, wheat, pepper, clove and alcohol. WOW! This one is very enjoyable. It actually coats your entire mouth. This is good! Realy good!

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Bottled. Poured a rich, hazy sun-burnt orange with a towering cap of creamy white head. The aroma was quite prolific with toasted bananas, cloves, cinnamon, and doughy maltness.. somewhat sweet, and very well executed. The flavor had toasted bananas again at the core along with honey-tinted caramel sweetness.. prickly wheat danced toward the outer reaches of the tongue, paired with pepper, clove, and cinnamon spiciness.. finish was long and a touch tacky, carrying banana, spices, and a hint of bubblegum. Medium-bodied and a touch thick on the palate for a hefe.. medium sourness from the wheat and a hint of lemon.. Well Done!

Clean refreshing clove and wheat aroma, with some ester that reminded me more of kindergarden clue then banana, taste was a full long lasting lemony wheat tangy flavor, aftertaste is lemony tartness,like you had swallowed a lemondrop a minute ago,satisfying ,rich,as good as Iíve tasted in this catagory. I will have to get the word out to my hefe worshippers

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Dark hazy golden color with a taller off-white head that settles quite quickly, but still leaved a thicker covering. Aromas of sweet wheat, cloves, light banana, yeasty dough. LIght sweet fruit and wheat in the flavors. Some pale malt and hints of alcohol, which is quite well hidden for a 7.2% hefe (this likely should be considered a weizenbock). A few of these and you will be dancing, or sleeping. Most drinkable, without too many esters, a problem I find with many a stronger weissbier. Once again, thanks New Glarus Brewery for making quality beer after beer.
