Brewed with flaked barley and the finest Wisconsin malts. We even give a nod to our farmers with a little hint of corn. Naturally cloudy we allow the yeast to remain in the bottle to enhance fullness of flavors, which can not be duplicated otherwise. Expect this Ale to be fun, fruity and satisfying.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Bottled. This is described on the label as a "Wisconsin farmhouse ale," and indeed it seems more like a French than a cream ale. Nice looking head dissipates quickly, leaving a hazy, strawlike body. I get nice effervescence and a grapefruitty, almost sour taste. They get some props for not only admitting to using corn, but giving a reason. Corn seems to be the source of the sweetness more than the malt. Hop finish is there, but not distracting. A very pleasant experience.

12oz bottle courtesy of my neighbor John from his trip out west and elsewhere. Golden hue, murky clarity with fully diminishing head. Virtually no lacing. Light citrus, apple, grape and banana aromas. Citrus and banana taste up front with more of a light fruit (grape) finish. Dry on the palate.

Bottle from a trade with mdg164. Pours hazy golden color with white head. Cereal malt and fruity aromas. Lightly sweet fruity flavor with some cereal malt. Medium body with average carbonation. Light and refreshing. Thanks Marc.

My first impression was that this beer is a wheat - the nose hints of wheat, it has a light, cloudy amber color and it tastes like a wheat. Not as intense as a true wheat, carbonation is light, starts as a mix of malt and hops and finishes fairly smooth and sweet. Moderate head that leaves little lace. The brewer has barley and corn in it so I don’t know where the wheat overtones come from

Where: A gift from a neighbor, from a store in Wisconsin. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: Pours a hazy, nice lacing, ample carbonation. Aroma: Fruity, yeasty, malty. Taste: Sweet, balanced, and slightly apple-fruity. Palate: Medium bodied to light. Overall: Kind of ok for New Glarus. Not amazing but decent.

A good beer available in bottle and on tap anywhere you go in the state of Wisconsin. So people think they do not sell out of state do the demand that is a myth. State law prohibits it

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 7/10/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and restrained fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, pear, apple, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, corn, white bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and restrained fruity yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness. Very clean flavors after the finish with the restrained yeast fruitiness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready/grainy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a fantastic cream ale style. All around awesome balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and restrained fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

A steady pour into my teku glass produces a two-finger thick, fairly tightly beaded, light tan colored head that leaves some light lacing on the sides of my glass as I drink it. The beer is a pale honey color that shows a lightly hazed, pale, yellow-golden hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells sweet of grain, light honey-leaning notes, perhaps a touch of corn, sweet pale malt porridge, and has a sweetness accentuating fermentation character that adds a clove like sweetness, and general fruitiness that suggest of floral, syrup soaked, cooked pears. There is a wholesome, sun-baked, pale grain character in the nose at times; leaning towards whole wheat crackers, with a touch of nutty pale malt.

Fairly sweet tasting, with only a hint of a bitter hop bite to the finish, but there is a slight mineral quality and some light spiciness, and a carbonic bite to the finish that helps to slightly balance out the sweetness in the long finish. Light bodied, refreshing, with a bit of an effervescent carbonation, there seems to be a bit of viscosity here though that is from residual malt, and perhaps a mouthfeel contributed from the fermentation character. There is a sweet clove like spiciness to this beer that really accentuates the sweetness.

This beer was not at all what I was expecting, it has a lot more sweet accentuating, fruit-leaning, Ale yeast character than I was expecting. In truth, before I had this, I had thought this was a craft styled adjunct lager, brewed as the flagship beer, such that it was just a step above you standard macro-lager. This has quite a bit more character to it.
