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 !
