COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Do not waste time attempting to box this brew into some esoteric guide to styles. This is Dan’s bold creation. His passion for unfiltered Weiss collides with Cascade Hops inventing our Imperial Hefe-Weizen. Dry hopping boldly rules over Wisconsin red wheat and our special strain of Bavarian yeast. At almost 20 O.P. this is the super mac daddy of Weiss beers. Decoction mashing was followed by excessive dry hopping to create a fierce onslaught of clove, cinnamon and citrus all in this living beer. Don’t bother waiting to enjoy - the time is now.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with head for days. Aroma is a slightly caramel peach with a slight spice profile. Taste is again fruit forward with a lingering sweetness. Slight bubblegum in a good way and no hint of the 9+% alcohol. Great NG beer as usual.

Pour is hazed deep amber with a tight off white head leaving a thick lace. Nose is interesting, a lightly muddled wheat malt and spicy earthy yeast note give way to lemon and clove with a touch of candied lemon. There is a bit of an herbal back end. Taste has a lot happening, the wheat malt is up front, its earthy and musky. The yeast is quite spicy mingling with the candied lemon and some sweetness through the finish. Well carbonated, spice lingers, peppery. Body is full and creamy, faint dryness and a bit sweet through the finish.

Another great entry in the Thumbprint line from New Glarus. Strength is the predominant word here.

Pours a hazy golden with 4 finger head that lingers, but no lacing. Yeast and funk hit the nose up front. Hint of bubble gum and banana, but very subtle. Pine and grapfruit hops. Toasted malt. I can appreciate a little clove. Starts out thinking it wants to be sweet, but then turns moderately bitter. Long bitter finish. Full bodied and moderately carbonated. This is very good

Nice white foamy head and fairly clear wuth a bit of haziness. Nice hop presence with the base of a bready hefe. Really nice beer!

Bottle from a generous friend. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a massive creamy and fluffy white to off-white head. The head just won’t quit! Beautiful fruit medley of banana, pear, bright citrus, spicy earthy funky yeast, floral notes of hibiscus and jasmine, and even what smells like some dank hops. This is beautiful, really incredible nose. The flavor is big florals and zesty hops up front followed by sweet pears and orange citrus, then finishing with a funky banana yeasty ness. There is significant zest to this in front of what seems to be a nice hefe and the combination is both unique and deliciously refreshing. Medium body with medium high carbonation and loads of complex flavors. New Glarus does it again. I could drink this all day and there is no sign of the 9%+ ABV anywhere. This one could get dangerous.

01/07/14 trade from Jamil. Home on a snow day. Sour grapefruit scent with some malt. Beautiful cloudy copper pour with a big head. Medium feel. Sour hop citrus flavor to a tinge of funk quality and ending on a malt note. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fletchfighters (1063) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
Hazy golden orange color with a sticky one finger head. Good soapy lacing with this. Massive amount of fruit. Yeah the usual clove and banana but add in stone fruit pits and pineapple. Really impressive nose with this. Sharp tropical fruit bite in the taste. Off the bat hoppy. Backing of clove and banana with stone fruits. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Slightly sweet and sticky. Has the body of an IPA but the feel of a wheat. Lovely beer

Watch out for the nigh-unstoppable head. Look is a swampy dull-orange with lots of bubbles. Taste is sweet, fizzy, fruity and floral. Love this stuff.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head. The nose mostly sweet with notes of banana and clove. The flavor is fairly boozy with some spice and residual sweetness.
