A buddy brought this back from Wisconsin once, and while good, it didnít meet the hype New Glarus generates. Tasted very Pilsner-ish to me, not my favorite style. Oberon is better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, thanks oh6gdx!) Opaque orange with almost no head. Aroma of slightly sour apples, lots of fruity oranges, mild witbier spices. Very fruity initial flavor with oranges, some lemon and wheat. Somehing like a mix of Ukranian witbier and a hint of saison. No hops to speak of. The finish is a bit disappointing, as it hardly exists. Light to medium-bodied, slightly fizzy carbonated, but otherwise smooth and refreshing palate. A very fruity and quite pleasant brew, although too easy and mild for my taste.

A pale pour with a fruity aroma. A creamy smooth banana palated that leaves a slight linger.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2006 Leave this one in the bottle. It pours out cloudy pale gold with no head. I mean no head. Aroma is mild with some kind of banana fruitiness and malt. This beer seems more like a wheat beer to me. Texture is soft and creamy, quite pleasent. Very refreshing and light bodied. Iíd drink a six pack of this for $6 any day. In terms of appearance, ignorance is bliss with this beer. I like the labeling of these beers. Considering this is New Glarusís lowest rated beer and my first, I think Iím in for some real treats. Itís just a delicious simple beer.

Pours whittish gold with a white head. Smells of vanilla and fruit. Taste is creamy with some vanilla, fruit and malty notes.

(01.20.06) 12 oz brown bottle from the American Club, Kohler, WI. Hazy light yellow hued ale having a small tiny white head. No discernable carbonation. Faint fruity aroma. Light-to-medium bodied ale that starts dry with light malt and fruity, citrus (grapefruit?) flavors. Finishes dry with light corn aftertaste. A good refreshing crisp drinkable beer.

Wonderful beer! Pitchers of this go down like water. It finishes more smoothly than any other beer Iíve ever had. I notice no aftertaste.

Slightly murky yellow color. Light lemon and wheat flavor, very light and unimposing. Like a like wheat beer, crisp and fresh. Not bad but could be better.

Hmmm... I found this enjoyable but nothing special. On tap at the local tavern. Cloudy blonde with minimal head. A bit spicy in the aroma, nothing special going on flavorwise, a bit too sweet for my liking. Cloying mouthfeel, but an aftertaste that actually makes corn in a beer seem alright. Itís a local favorite but this one only comes above the Naked as far as New Glarus brews go.
