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.

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.

Pours an amber orange color with a fluffy white head. Scent is full of wheat with a slight bitter scent mixed with bananas. The taste has a similar taste that reminds me of biting into an apple. I know there is a lot of wheat to this beer but I’m getting more apple tasting hints. This is a smooth, tasty brew that is a great drink for the fall harvest weather.

Pours hazy yellow, with crisp head. Aroma is banana, lemon, and hint of cloves. Starts sweet bananas and ends dry cloves. Lovely beer.

northropfrye (2323) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
Aroma of banana, cloves, a touch of sour. Copper colour with nice foamy white head. Taste is sweet banana, a bit of spices, doesn’t linger super long, nor is it particularly intense. A solid kristallweizen.

hombrepalo (1853) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a light white head. Some lacing. Nose is banana and brown sugar. Sort of a weird hefe/dubbel taste to me. One of the few NG beers I haven’t been all over.

12 ounce bottle pour. $7.49 per 6 pack. Very similar to Back 40 Bock. Average german-like-style beer.

Pours medium amber. head lingers. Nose is bananas, sweet bread, peanut butter, strong bubblegum. Flavor is complex fruitiness, light vanilla, and again bubblegum. Crisp finish, dry and low bitterness.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Generous banana aroma, esters, lightly yeasty. Sweet. Big head, ruby amber color, clear. Frothy, but limp at the end, and thin flavor. Disappointing. Bottle.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is dark golden colored with a lasting white head. Too dark for the style. The aroma is similar to a dunkel weizen, with wheat and some dark fruit presence. A bit sweet and malty. I would prefer a lighter color and body, with less malt presence. Not what I look for in a beer of this style. Overall, this was just ok.
