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.

Wow, 7.2%? Seriously? Very fruity, bready aroma, and a very nice, light palate. If I were prone to using the word "lovely", this would be the time. Flavors is also rather sweet, with a definate pineapple note combined with clove, cinnamon. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Buckybeer for the trade!

12oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy golden color with a larger sized head. Aromas of spices (cloves and cinnamon as the description notes), bananas, wheat, and citrus. Tastes of spices (I’m getting more cinnamon vs. cloves), bananas, wheat and citrus. Lightly tart finish. Never would have guessed this one was more than 7%.

Beautiful, hazed, golden and buffed bronze in color with a resplendent, thick, sudsy and whipped white head morphing tall on top. Aroma is a ticket straight into heaven. Marigolds, sweet orange cream, buttery cloves mixing with grounded clover, and caramel coated vanilla beans all settle onto nectar laden honey grahams. Flavor rides in with a flavorful, nearly lactic lemon buttercream character. Soft, fluffy cotton and clover intermingle in a gardenlike orange honey blossom tree. Sweet cream, spicy cloves and banana meringue grahams harmoniously fizzle and melt in the mouth. Milky lemon herbal sets dance around the tonsils. Rounded, balanced beauty. White pepper and cloves meet with a spicy ginger body to give an active upper dominion to the full palate family. Sugar capped cloves, spicy banana ginger and caramel custard cream treat with a nice sweet acidity in the milky finish. Absolutely lovely.

a good beer to be sure, but beyond a doubt the weakest of the last four wheat beers (Solstice, Black Wheat, Copper Kettle). It doesn’t look as good as the others. no visible sediment, and more dark gold than orange like Solstice. Still a good looking beer, tall white but thin and quickly fading head on top. The aroma is full and vibrant. It has sugar, banana, light citrus, and wheat. Unfortunately the alcohol is noticeable in the aroma, and detracts slightly from the beer overall. Flavor is very sweet, fine for a wheat beer. Thick mouthfeel, but again to compare to solstice, not as sweet and full as that beer. Wheat and sugar, fruit including banana, and again, just a hint of alcohol in the flavor. This beer is definitely a success and quite good, but New Glarus has a made a better hefeweizen.

7/25/2007: New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat pours beautifully into my wheat glass. It is cloudy and golden orange in color. There is a flurry of carbonation and a large, foamy off-white head that is retained pretty much from the initial pour to the last sip. The aroma is banana, clove, wheat with a touch of caramel richness to it, and even a whisp of smoke! The flavor is fruity with some bubblegum (kind of like a Belgian Ale) along with some malty wheat, Hawaiian bread, banana, clove, and a lingering rich and spicy finish. The alcohol is tucked away nicely, especially for being a 7.2% ABV HEFEWEIZEN! This beer is more full than expected, but that’s quite alright since the additional body works well with this beer. Not only is is soft and mellow, but it also feels deceptively light and airy on the palate. What a great combination of characteristics that results in a wonderful mouth feel. This is a killer Hefeizen and the best of the New Glarus wheat beers so far. I thought that the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Beer/new-glarus-coppe Glarus Copper Kettle Weiss was a great beer, but this one is even better and is without a doubt my new favorite Hefe!

12 oz bottle (1647 14:49) from buckybeer. Thank you Mark! Rating #17 for this beer...

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice hazy golden color with a big frothy off white head. Aroma of cloves, yeast and citrus. The flavors of cloves, wheat and bananas are up front and mellow. Has a good clean crisp taste that makes you savor each sip. Has the complexity with out a lot of overkill in any specific area. This is another well made craft beer from New Glarus!.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Pours a cloudy golden bronze with a spotty-lacing frothy white head. Sweet, authentic wheaty banana and bready German yeasty aroma has a touch of peppery clove. Body starts very full for a hefeweizen with a lot of sweet wheat, banana bubble gum, and doughy yeast toward a slightly drier, mildly warming clove finish. Too full to be a session-style hefeweizen, but very tasty.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2007
This rockets right to the top of my list of hefeweizens. From a 12-oz. bottle, it pours a very cloudy, almost opaque orangey-gold with sizable white head. The head stays with you until the not-very-bitter end. Great lacing. Bananas & cloves predominate in the moderate aroma. Big initial taste--surprisingly sweet with tangerines, cinnamon, banana & clove all making an appearance . Great wheat backbone. Minor bittering, with an almost orange peel-like taste in the followup. Superbly rich & creamy mouthfeel. Best hefe I’ve ever tasted.

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.
