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.

This is a deep fox red with a tangy and bittersweet taste and is the best Krystal Weisen out there. It has complex flavor characteristics.

A beautiful copper red pour with nice carbonation. Great flavors of spice and wheat and fruit. Look forward to this one each fall.

This is one uniquely crisp, refreshing beer! I was impressed with the crisp aftertaste and malty finish for a beer this jubilant. The aroma is almost a bubble gummy type gummy bear feel to it...in an ever-striking pleansant fashion. I could call it floral with a hint of fruit or citrus, yet, there’s a certain malty finish that leaves no bitter aftertaste. They’ve captured a unique style here with this krystalweitzen and I would agree that this is a beer unlike any other I can think of. The only drawback is the less than 5.0% ABV. I would like to see them add a little more ABV to this somehow.

Efeswasmy1st (15) - LaCrosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Aroma is heavy on banana, clove, some vanilla Similar to their Dancing Man Wheat. Appearance is outstanding. Pour amber orange, and a frothy tan foam so thick was similar to a root beer float. Taste has a medium sweetness and lightly sour. Palate is light in body, slick and fizzy on the tongue. Fun, different than average fall/winter beer.

Aroma is yeast, a hint of dark fruit/grapes and very funky. The flavor is bananas, berries/dark fruit, malts and a very noticeable funkiness all around and into the finish.

This may be my first Kristallweizen. A filtered Hefeweizen, but it still retains all the best flavors.
