3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Picked up a 6 pack in New Glarus coming back from a weekend trip to Madison. Pours a nice golden hue with a thick creamy head with notes of citrus and clove. Goes down with flavors mainly of banana coriander with a touch of hop bitterness. More complex than your standard Hefeweiss. Definitely good stuff from New Glarus Brewing.
Much closer to a pale ale, Hopster reminds me of New Glarus Moon Man with a slightly reduced hop bite. The malted wheat does give the beer a smooth backbone for the hops to jump off. A nice brew, delightful from a bottle on a warm fall day. mR_fr0g (12067) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015

In a 12oz bottle. Flavor is banana-heavy fruit salad with a big dose of hops. Despite all of that going on, the flavor is strikingly dry. One of those summer-in-a-glass kind of beers. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2015

Clear radiant gold. Big rich lusciously creamy lasting white head. Creamy wheat. Great yeast character. Gentle banana and peppery spice, some bubblegum. Citrusy hops perfectly layered within. Soft with a little zip. Semi dry finish with a hint of spiciness. Superbly made as always, seeming as though they’ve been making it for generations. Its modern yet traditional. Nothing gimmicky.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours mostly clear, bright gold, medium head that foams away fairly slowly. Mild aroma of citrus peel, hay, a little candied fruit. Flavor is similarly mild - honey in the background makes a little bit of an impression, but mostly just citrus and wheat as expected. BreWedge (534) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
12 fl oz bottle via Piscator34. Pours a near-clear gold with a substantial white head. Aromas are banana, clove, and citrus. Tastes are more hefeweizen than APA with banana and some spiciness being dominant. A little chalky with a dry spicy finish. Very unique beer.

Bottle share at Paul’s. Thanks to loins. No date or ABV details. Yellow, clear, sparkling, decent foamy white head. Aroma is wheat, soft banana, papery, some booze. Mostly light banana. Body is medium, quite foamy, low carbonation. Taste is a little buttery, some wheaty cereal and biscuit malts, no real bitterness, some perfumey fruits.

Bottle thanks to Cloin at the Tropical Croydonia tasting. It pours clear gold with a foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, soap, peach, wheaten bread and banana. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, bready, wheat, banana bread, candy, bubblegum and light alcohol. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Simple, but pretty drinkable stuff.
