COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In playful pursuit of butterflies a Red Fox danced across the brewery hill. His joy so pure it bubbled through our hearts and into this beer. Laughing Fox is a sparkling Kristal Weizen brewed in the Bavarian tradition with 50% Wisconsin wheat in our open top fermenters. Tickle your nose notes of spicy clove and cinnamon abound. Dan’s inspired Weizen interpretation reflects the deep bittersweet color of our Fox’s red coat. Expect this beer to pour a lively effervescent glass thick with creamy foam and bursting with luscious fruity notes on your pallet. This is easy drinking beer perfect for a friendly Wisconsin evening. Relax, this is God’s Country, here we have the strength to reach for the stars and change the world.

"Another wish list item from Heybeerman, which is the case for any new Glarus I haven’t tried and many I have. Pours clear, but dark like an amber, almost red. Huge head. Both this and the winter warmer had more of a spicy belgianesque quality than expected. Fruity, crisp and clean. Light spice and fruit in the flavor. Not up to par with other wheats from NG, but among the better Krystals I’ve had. "

Interesting aroma, cinnamon and clove are very present. Spicy on the palate, wheat follows that, and finishes with a semi-sweet taste.

[Bottle] Clear light amber pour with a large amount of dense white head. Highly carbonated. Yeast and wheat malts in the aroma. Taste is of dough, vanilla, bubblegum, light fruits, cinnamon and light banana. Compared to the other New Glarus wheat beers, this one is definitely lighter-- but I actually prefer the heavier palate. Tasting notes from 2012.

Pour is amber with a bubbly white head. Aroma is of banana, cloves, and caramel. Flavor is sweeter than I expected with notes of caramel, brown sugar, and wheat germ. It’s like a Vienna mixed with a Hefeweizen.

12/17/12, Pint glass poured from a bottle. The color is a glorious copper-amber. The aroma is malty with a touch of bitterness. The head is thick and darker than I anticipated. The malt gods are rejoicing! Yummy malt with limited hops. A touch of an English ale. The bottle's label references spicy clove and cinnamon. I concur. It also states the beer is a Weizen but this is like no wheat beer I have had. It is unique but I like it! ---Rated via the Gridfather

12 oz bottle served in a New Glarus taster and flute. Split with the wifey for dinner. A: Pours a brownish color, clear and light, with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass. S: Big yeasty notes up front. Clove and banana. Sweet bread with some cracked wheat as well. T: Same as the nose. Lots of yeasty esters, clove and banana, with some backing wheat flavors. Sweet malts as well. Light citrus note, but the malts, wheat and yeast are the stars of the show. M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet finish. O: A nice beer. My first true Kristalweizen. Nice flavors all around. Well balanced. Serving type: bottle 05-27-2013

Wonderful beer with a deep romantic redish/orange color with an off white creamy head. This beer has less wheat profile than Dancing Man Wheat but was never intended to be it’s rival. The beer has notes of clove and spices which delivers a compexity not seen in wheat beers. I enjoy the carbonation which cleans the palate between cheese flights. Delightfull and a great Krystal Weizen brew...anywhere.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear amber with a half finger of white head. Aroma of wheat and clove with a good dose of baking spice. Taste is light sweet. Banana and clove with wheat. Light bodied with a thin yet slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good.

One of my less favorite New Glarus brews. Not much wheat character, not all that refreshing, and just kind of disorganized. I’ll stick with Dancing Man.
