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.

This beer was just a little too sweet for my likes. May have been a little too light of a beer for my tastes.

Out of the bottle, poured a deep gold, hazy, with a huge rocky persistent head. I got notes of banana, clove, boozy banana bread, wrigleyís juicy fruit gum, candy sugar, and wheat malt. Bottle purchased directly from brewery does not have an ABV written on it, but RB is listing it at 7.2% which feels right - it packs a punch for a wheat beer. Love it.

Bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! This is one intense wheat beer. Itís got all of the classic elements of Hefeweizen -- the grain and hay taste from the wheat and the bubblegumí/orange/clove esters from the yeast -- but itís all amplified, especially the yeast notes. Really good, really bold.

MrTipple (3586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2016
Intense esters, sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, bubble gum, more molasses. Hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Heavy sweet. More sweet grain malts, bread and caramel, sweet esters, soft carbonation, heavy bodied. Very nice Weizenbock, maybe a touch too sweet for me. Bottle from brewery, New Glarus, WI.

skortila (5276) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2016
Bottled. Small sample. Old note. The aroma has light cloves, banana, some grain. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a medium sized white head. The taste is light bitter and refreshing. Good one.

muzzlehatch (4758) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served in a New Glarus weizen glass at cellar temp or so. Huge pop when the cap comes off, and it pours an enormous gout of foam, which subsides fairly quickly atop the lightly oily-cloudy golden body...on the nose, itís bubblegum-bubblegum-bubblegum; I donít often use that word, maybe because I was never a bubblegum guy and havenít chewed it for decades, but this beer more than any other I can remember brought me back to the days of Bubble Yum, Bubblicious, and especially Bazooka and the Bazooka Joe comics. Man, the memories! Who knew that bubblegum aroma in a weizenbock is my madeleine? Anyway thereís also some banana and I could swear some mint in this utterly entrancing nose, and I keep going at it for minutes, forgetting to drink, reveling in the past...finally I take a sip, and (no surprise), the rose-colored glasses are off, and Iím back to the present, and not 8 years old again asking for another quarter to put in the candy machine for another pack of Bazooka Joe, just inside the entrance to the Beloit Kohlís grocery store...sigh...itís decent enough, with that bready malt fairly rich, sweet - perhaps too sweet - but with enough sourness coming through on the end to keep it from getting TOO cloying, or it would be if not for the rather low carbonation level...finishes sweet, bready, thick. I have the feeling this bottle was a little old - a mix-a-six bottle and I think this is one of the lesser-selling varieties, at least at this store. Hey, Iím burping gum! If a bubble should come out, thisíll get a 5.0. Wait for it...sigh...no. You canít go home again.

Light florals and some wheat. Potpourri sense. Golden pour with good head and lacing. Light sweet finish with some tang. Great balance and easy drinking. Bottle shared at tasting, big thanks to iphonephan.
