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.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Bottle thanks to someone. Thanks, bro. Pours an amber color with a white head. Aromas of apples, clove and grape drank. Meh. Taste is similar - too fucking sweet to be taken seriously. The color, aroma and sweetness seriously detract from this "kristallweizen". This beer is garbage, and I expected awesomeness from New Glarus. Scroll past.

12oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden amber with a huge fluffy white head that recedes fairly quickly to a small foamy cap. Aroma is light banana sweetness, lemon zest and hints of different spices such as clove and cinnamon. Taste is more of the mild sweetness, definitely the bananas, almost like a dialed-down hefe in the taste. Light clove and some biscuity malts. Mouthfeel is really creamy for the style, smooth and highly carbonated. I donít have much experience with the style but this has to be one of the best representations out there. Itís definitely the best Iíve had.

Clear brown body with a sudsy off white head. Nice aroma of clove, banana, and a little cinnamon. Bright, smooth mouthfeel...lots of carbonation. Sweet entry fades to a spicy finish. Banana, clove, cinnamon, and a touch of citrus. Another fine brew from New Glarus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to cbfobes. Thanks man! Pours a darker caremel color with a thick head of orange tinted beige foam. The aroma is very spicy with lots of cinnamon. Itís sort of sweet, too. Itís an interesting take on the style, thatís for sure.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light banana, clove, and a touch of cinnamon. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of banana. Thereís some light-moderate lemon sourness in the middle. The finish has light clove and a hint of cinnamon. Itís light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

Aroma of fruit, some cinnamon, and malt. Crystal clear light amber with lively carbination. Sweet first, malt, fruit..specifically banana, spices. Carbination gives a nice bite, finishes with slight bitterness, but then covered nicely with sweetness.

12oz bottle: This one pours a crystal clear amber color. There was a good sized light beige head on it. It didnít linger long, but did leave some lacing. It has an interesting nose. There is a slight sourness to it. Get some apples in there, along with some faint banana. Faint hints of clove and cinnamon. Also a touch of wheat. The taste is very good. A hint of sourness to it. Wheat, some of the clove and cinnamon, faint apple and banana. An excellent beer!
