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. Danís inspired Weizen interpretation reflects the deep bittersweet color of our Foxís 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 Godís Country, here we have the strength to reach for the stars and change the world.

Pours hazy orange-red with slightly off white head from bottle. Aroma has notes of cinnamon, cloves, some nice bread, banana, and biscuit notes, touch of toffee and caramel, some earth and slight grassiness, also notes of molasses in there as well. Taste is really nice and balanced, tasty, with notes of clove, banana, bready biscuit, some nice cinnamon, slight vanilla, molasses notes, with some bitter earth and grass, finishing slightly sweet but fairly dry. Really nice brew, full bodied especially for how low ABV it is.

1FastSTi (3334) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pours to a deep glowing amber body with tons of visible medium speed moving carbonation and a super tall frothy meringue like off-white head and sexy lacing. The aroma is spicy and sweet with an earthy brown sugar, grassy hop, and cloves. Notes of cinnamon bubblegum. The flavor is wheaty and light, but very clean. Subtle cinnamon and brown sugar with a clove bubblegum like component. The palate is crisp and clean with a light lingering wheat flavor. The beer is surprisingly not over carbonated given how many bubbles can be seen. Tons of flavor in this "light beer".

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Sampled during GTMW 2011 and picked up a six-pack from New Glarus brewery in New Glarus, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some banana esters, hint of yeast, bubble gum and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied, mildly carbonated with flavors of bubblegum, banana, caramel malt, and melon. Finish is semi-dry with a lingering banana yeast aftertaste. A solid Kristalweizen with more copper color than most others.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Amber color with a persistent tan head that starts off rocky. Gives off a grainy aroma with a hint of caramel. Has the flavor of wheat that is slightly sweet. Almost like a cross between a hefeweisen and an amber ale.

vikingguy (796) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Peach color with white head. Fruity/spicy aroma. Interesting flavor. Dry and spicy. Notes of cinnamon, clove, apple, cherry, peach and vanilla. As fruity as it is, itís not that sweet. Has some tart-sourness to it that cuts the sweetness nicely. Medium-light palate. Prickly carbonation. Very drinkable. Unique...I like it a lot.

LtDan (1785) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark copper with a creamy tan head. The body is clear. Leaves creamy lacing.

Aroma: Banana bubble gum fruitiness. Wheat bread. Cantaloupe.

Taste: A well pronounced spicy fruity yeast. Banana, bread crust, spicy hops, clovey finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied medium carbonation.

Overall: A very tasty weizen. Lies somewhere between a Doppelbock and a Hefeweizen. Very balanced and well executed.

12 ounce bottle
After sampling this at the Great Taste of the Midwest I knew that it would be a winner. Therefore it was not hard to finish off a bottle while watching some television. In fact this is so good that I am going to have to ration out my remaining bottles. Since it is such a light style this one wonít have much of a shelf life but I am sure it will become very popular while it does last.

Aroma / Appearance - The amber carbonated body bubbled with lots of life. An ash white head was pure and clean like bleached cotton. Banana nut bread with a dash of chocolate chips tickle the senses. This one wonít assault you nor should it.

Flavor / Palate - Yeast, banana cloves, and residual orange shavings mix easily and carelessly. Like a slice of toast with a generous helping of Nutella it is sweet and encourages you to drink more. The finish renews the palate so that even after 12 ounces the palate is ready for more. This is another home run from the geniuses in rural Wisconsin.

Pours a clear reddish-amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma of bananas, cloves and powdered sugar. Spicy and fruity flavors with a bit of creamy malt and a slightly tart finish. Light bodied and very refreshing. Great stuff.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2011
12oz bottle. Right off the bat Iíd say this doesnít look like any Kristalweizen iíve ever seen. Amber-tan, attractive creamy off-white head. The aroma is fresh and clean, light and doughy..very non pronounced in a good way. Not unlike the Cracked Wheat, the amber malt tones shine through once again Very fresh and lively, a touch of wheaty tartness. Almost approaching a Belgian Singel. Quite a nice beer, but not really a Krystalweizen, so why call it that? Well executed, and highly sessionable.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle courtesy of cbfobes. Thanks! Pours a crystal clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big clove notes, stone fruits, earthy notes, banana, caramel and a bit of smoke. Bit citrus and caramel in the taste, some stone fruits, banana, berries and a faint bit of smoke. Tart finish with a mild hoppiness. Medium bodied. Lively carbonation. Very well done.
