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.

TheEpeeist (3283) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 12 oz bottle. Clear honey brown with a fluffy bone head. Nose is wheat, coriander and slight citrus peel. Medium light with fizzy carb. A touch creamy on the backside. Taste is green banana, chewed bubblegum, lemon pith and clove. Understated but still pushing the style.

flatmatt (1058) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, slightly amber golden with an off-white head. Very yeasty aroma, clove, banana, green and red apple, just a bit overripe and not to my preferences. Flavor is definitely has yeast as well, cloves, apple, some butterscotch even (not the bad kind), strawberry, hint of hops. Very surprising for a kristallweizen, really, quite a bit of flavor. Still finishes clean, though.

Bottle. Pours amber with white head. Nose/taste of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, sweet malt, mixed fruits and grains. Creamy foam head. Medium body.

12 oz bottle from Doodler. Nose is thick with bananas, wheaty yeast bread, and light cloves. Clear copper orange with a big offwhite head. Flavor is peppery, a little bananas, mild bitterness, and cloves. Finishes with light bitterness.

bookman10 (624) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Not too bad. Definitely a step up from the Unplugged Imperial Weizen they released a while back. Dancing Man Wheat is one of the best non-German wheat beers I’ve tried, so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise. Pours a nice, clear golden-yellow. Aroma and flavor dominated by cloves, sour banana, and other esters. Nice, clean mouthfeel and dry finish to the beer.

scoobysnak (329) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2012
A nice copper color to it with a fairly decent white head that vanished fairly quickly. Some good yeast flavors but the palate is definitely lacking.

JK (4352) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Why would they do a kristalweizen? Characteristic New Glarus wheat quality and yeast, but lacking palate. Aroma and flavor are thin and lacking, there is just not much there. Well carbonated, and a big white head. Copper color. It is almost like a small beer. It is drinkable, and no real flaws, but not not one I especially enjoy. One of the few misses from Neww Glarus.

jake65 (2591) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle: Dark copper color with a thin beige head. Mostly malts and some wheat, I did get a little bit of the crisp spiciness from the cloves, but nothing more.

MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a clear nutty copper with thick head. Aroma has brown sugar, bubblegum and earthy malts. the flavor has banana clove, caramel, nut and wheat. This has been a style that I have been shying away from, but this was/is damn good!

jcr (2185) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Big, fizzy, off-white head atop a clear amber body. Pleasant aroma of banana, cherry, toasted grain, earthiness, clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lots of banana flavor with a tartness in the finish. Very clean and plenty going on in this 4.5% beer to keep it interesting.
