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.

crossovert (10681) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2011
12 oz bottle. IT pours an interesting color for a kristalweizen, it is not a traditional one because I haven’t seen any Kristalweizen that has looked like this. It is nice and clear though. Smells like a kristal weizen, thought the banana is perhaps a bit overly intense. The flavor is very kristalweizen-y. It has a slight bit of lemon to go with the banana and clove. Not super duper true to style, but for the style it isn’t bad.

Sammy (10564) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle from Reilly’s in Madison. Pours a gigantic white head on light orange body. Retained one-half inch of head. Spicy, slightly yeasty aroma. Mouthfeel is a tad above average. Taste is spicy and catchy, a little yeasty. Nothing like I expected, it was most drinkable. Got good cinammon.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2011 Bottle @ home, courtesy of bnielsen13. Thanks Brad! Clear copper orange appearance with a big creamy, brown head. Dry wheat malty, a touch metallic, mild clove, lightly spicy, effervescent aroma. A touch tangy, mild orange citrusy, somewhat spicy, clove, dry, wheat malty flavor that again seems fairly metallic. Not a bad session beer but I far prefer its German counterparts.
