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.

Representation of a German beer . Close and cinnamon present in the palate. Smooth easy drinking not overly carbonated. Overall, definitely a beer worth transporting from Wisconsin to Colorado

BMMillsy (1325) - Florida, USA - MAR 21, 2013
My first of this style. Got from a trade. Pours a deep orange red with large creamy head that has just a hint of orange color to it. Aroma is strong pears, wheatiness, funky yeast, banana. Very nice. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Tastes like biting into a fresh pear. Hints of cinnamon that do not overpower, but supplement the beer. Not overly sweet at all. Not even close to "too sweet." nicely balaned brew that one could drink all night.

From a bottle. Clear deep amber color. Flavor is sweet fruit and toasted bread. Nice balance. Clean and light but complex enough to be interesting. Really nice interesting beer.

Pours a deep red amber, and clear for a wizen, with a creamy, slightly off white head. This beer has a strong aroma, with the clove and banana coming from the yeast, and strong notes of cinnamon. The taste is sweet malt with hints of cinnamon up front, with the spicy tartness of a saison on the finish. As the beer warms the tartness becomes more pronounced, leaving a balanced and dry finish. Body is heavier than it looks due to the wheat.

12oz bottle from an inperson trade with mnmike, a kristallweizen from one of my favorite brewers, sure why not a crisp malty taste is quite nice, i’m not finding any spicy clove, but certainly a clove taste, no cinnamon though the color looks it. pretty tasty

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Weizen glass at 42°. Color is a deep honey with light carbonation and a rocky white head. Aroma is sweet with crystal malt and yeast. It has a lighter body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is slightly sweet with caramel, a hint of clove, tart apple and a bit of yeast. Aftertaste is slightly dry from the tart with the yeast giving a bread note. Overall its a great Kristallweizen.
