Bottle. Deep clear orangeish-red color, very lively carbonation and a frothy head. Mild wheat, cloves, a hint of fruitiness. Very soft on the palate, with a lingering dryness from the wheat. Super easy drinking, would be a phenomenal session beer. Another home run from NG.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Kan. Opened on a laundry night. Pours a nice crisp darker golden pour, good glow, a touch of sunfire like amber but not quite copper, with just light haze, well carbonated, crisp colors and see thru. A frothy offwhite head sits atop and dies to a decent film, light lacing. Aromas are crisp clove spice and bready malts, flaked wheat meshes with fruity banana esters, touches of bubblegum, and a faint waft of citrus. The clove sticks to my nose with the banana influence. Initial is lighter bodied, offering a refreshing tartness mixing with fruit bananas, apples and pears. Touches of clove dance with some yeastiness, moving into flaked wheat and bready cereal malts. Cleans up a bit, just a touch tart, with dances of light spice and earthy bready dryness into the finish. Some faint lemon, fruity esters linger on with touches of spice. Light bodied yet flavorful, fairly impressive ratio at that. Overall, I enjoyed this.. very drinkable, light yet flavorful, a nice touch of tart fruity essence. Pretty nice beer here.. as the New Glarus wheat lineup keeps rolliní on. Has a lot going on for what it is.. could be a great summer time session wheat. Maybe Iím not crazy about filtering everything away.. but I see how it really works here. Solid small beer at itís ABV.

Aroma: clove, banana, bubblegum, yeast, slightly bready, faint sweet note, very nice. Pours a light copper color, perfectly clear with a massive white head, very good retention and some thick curtains of lace. Bready wheat and pils malt flavors, balanced nicely with the weizen yeast flavors of clove and banana. Slight bubblegum in the flavor, low bitterness, dry, crisp, refreshing finish. Medium body, moderately high carbonation. Very nice weizen.

12 oz. bottle shared by Thirsty and RapeBeer- thanks, guys! Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with an inch-thick, soft eggshell white head. Notes of banana, clove, nuts, sweet malts, toasted brown sugar, wheat, some floral notes, and sweet dough. Light-medium bodied, with a nutty, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice beer and a style I donít get to try very often.

Bottles. Clean light sessionable, flavorful hefeweizenbeer. Some toasted banana cream pie, bright herbal dry grass character. Some spice. Awesome.

355mL thanks to dkachur. Stolen for myself after my birthday tasting. The pour is a clear Vienna amber with a towering, beige head. Big retention...webby lace. Looking awesome though much darker than you would expect for style. Nose is ester explosion, baked banana bread, fresh red apples, pretty typical hefe yeast notes though more "baked" character. Banana walnut, cinnamon. Taste is a bit cidery, red apple, pretty clean and quenching. I would expect something "breadier" and less apple forward. Pretty tough style to make and NG would be the top choice for an American brewery to do it, but SRM is off and red apple character could be considered a flaw.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. Thanks Kan. Pours cloudy amber with huge foamy white head. Aroma is malty, toasted malt, brown sugar, cloves, and banana. Pleasant aroma. Flavors has a doughy malt base, toasted nuts, clove, but the flavor seems to fall a little short. Refreshing and tasty. Impressive for only 4.5!

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a Duvel glass a clear, dark copper color with a very large 3 finger foamy, frothy white head. Very fruit, belgian yeast aroma in the nose with bubblegum, banana, pear, and clove. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Sweet fruity upfront flavors with a more than expected bitterness popping in. Caramel notes as well. End dryly with a linger bubblegum and bitter aftertaste. Laces the glass.

Aroma is alcohol and slightly fruity. Color is a dark amber and the head is a thinnish off-white, although I think I could have foamed it up more. Flavor is interesting, with kind of a water-alcohol belgian, with a hint of something else. Iíve had two six packs of this beer, and Iím not sure if I like it or not. So, I just keep drinking it, and eventually Iíll find out.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Pours a clear amber with thick creamy head. Aroma is full of cloves and wheat malt. Taste is malty and obviously a wheat taste. This is probably the second best wheat beer Iíve had. Right behind Dancing Man!
