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.

Thank You Thank You Dan Carey for following your bliss in making Bavarian style Hefeweisse ! This is exceptional and worth pour after pour ! This will be a winner and hopefully lure people away form the "psuedo wheat beers" that mass marketing has pulled starting beer fanatics in with... The crack of the cap gives and audible note of good carbonation typical of a good hefeweizen. The aroma is malt/bread with hints of clove/lemon and spicy wheat aroma. The first sip and one slips into a time warp where you find yourself in a Bavarian beer garten smiling over the thought of what’s in your glass. It is effervescent, malt and flavorful. Light straw color with the traditional yeast cloudiness and moussy head. The finish is bready/sweet and with a nice bite of carbonation. I am going to have to preach on this beer and recommend you go and purchase a sixer or two of this wonderful beverage. Man can only hope that this is reviewed by New Glarus and made a yearly beer and not simply a seasonal. Thank you New Glarus for raising the bar once again. Cheers !

Pours a bright gold with a thick white head that dissipates in an appropriate time. Keeps a nice thin layer of white over the top. Smells of banana and clove. First taste is banana with a lingering clove finish.

Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Yeast, wheat, caramel malt and mild bitterness in the aroma. Yeast, wheat, malt and bitterness in the flavour. Excellent.

Pours a cloudy gold with a beautiful creamy two finger head that doesn’t let up much. Smell is centered around clove although lemons and a hint of banana follow. Lemon is the first thing I notice in the palate and is prevalent throughout. A little bit of bubblegum and pepper make their way in and it finishes heavily spicy from clove. Mouthfeel is spot on. A bit creamy and the higher than normal ABV for a Hefe helps. Very good beer, but pales in comparison to the Live Oak I had last week. I prefer less clove in my Hefes and this one is centered around clove. That said, it’s not way out of balance and the lemon flavors do a pretty good job of balancing out the spice. Will definitely seek this out again.

Pours a hazy golden color with a big foamy two finger head that hangs around and says wassup. Big fruity wheat notes mingle with sweet bubblegum and a trace of spice. The palate follows with a great quenching mouthfeel, some nice citrus balanced off some of the fresh wheat notes and lightly spiced yeast quality ! Really a great wheat beer.

Really? Do you just take all your "standard" beers and make them a mild ale of some sort? Come on. I love your fruits and unchained series, but this is shit.

Pours golden with a slight haze. Head is sticky and lasting. Good banana aroma mixed with some spice and just a touch of bubblegum. Flavor similar. Good. Thanks to Tastybeer

Bottle. Pours golden with healthy white head, no lacing. Bubblegum, banana, clove on the nose. Texture is thin -- light body, effervescent carbonation. Wheat, citrus come into play in the taste. Short, crisp finish. Overall: nice, though the texture is a bit thin for me.

A nice wheat beer with great color and a mild fruit aroma. The beer is a lighter wheat that makes for good drinking in warmer weather. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
12 oz. bottle. bottled on 3/29/13. Not super fresh, but decent for a hefeweizen. It pours a briliant gold color with a huge rocky white head that settles to a thin layer in about 2 minutes. The aroma is balanced and nuanced for the style with good wheat bread, mild banana and bubblegum sweetness. Nothing stands out as too strong. The flavor is light and refreshing. Just a hint of tartness and bubblegum. Lots of wheat and very spritzy mouthfeel, yet nice smooth body. Top notch Hefeweizen.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with an inviting foaming white head. The efferferscence is lively, with notes of clove. This indeginous beer is truly a remarkable artisanHefe Weizen and should be held in high esteem. I enjoy this beer with a creamy cheese that stick to the roof of the mouth and experience the bubbles dance the palate clean. Remarkable!
