COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you dream of wheat this brew will get your toes tapping. Since 1995 we have brewed Bavarian style wheat beers exclusively for the same great state that grows and malts our own Wisconsin wheat. In a world full of posers this is a true hefe-weizen naturally 100% bottle fermented and hazy.

Expect this beer to cascade effervescent into your glass. The rich spicy clove and cinnamon notes will greet your nose while sweet fruit and wheat kisses your lips.

Lick the foam from your mouth and admit sometimes you just gotta get up and dance.

Serving: Bottle. It pours a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Nice light clove nose with a touch of earth. Bright, crisp flavor with notes of wheat, yeast, and clove. Had no idea this was 7.2%. Really nice beer.

"SHOCKING NEWS!!! New Glarus makes ANOTHER awesome wheat beer! I swaer, they got the fruit and wheat beers styles down pat! HUGE aroma of bubble gum, banana and clove explodes out of the bottle. looks like you’d expect, with a nice frothy head. heavier feel due to the elevated abv, and a great flavor that just about matches the aroma. black wheat, crack’d wheat, and now this are probably 3 of my favorite 7 or 8 wheat beers from anywhere. only a couple german places rival these wheats! nice job, NG, and thanks Lou for the trade."

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some banana esters, pale and caramel malts, and some light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty standard beer.

Bottle as an extra in trade from forget who. Have had this sitting for a while so hopefully not past it's prime. Pours hazy golden colored with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma if sweet honey, pears, apples, wheat malts, coriander. Flavor is sweet Bavarian wheat malts, some crisp spiciness, pears and apples galore, honey balanced with crisp bitterness. Light plus bodied with lots of carbonation and very easy drinking. A nice hefe.

This is so good. Aromas of fresh banana, a hint of citrus, and beautiful warm spice notes. Flavors are banana, citrus, cinnamon. So refreshing and flavorful

MacBoost (1886) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from trade. Pours a cloudy light orange with a large white head. Aromas of sweet artificial banana flavoring and not much else. Taste is slightly spicy, and semi dry. Flavors of clove-y banana esters from the yeast along with some other spice, perhaps a touch of white pepper. Not exactly the cleanest beer in the world, but it petes pretty good. Medium-high boost which is completely masked. Standard German type weizen, although I’m not sure wh th bock part comes in. Good.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong yeast, spice, pepper. Medium mouthfeel with sweet malt, clove, pepper, and nice sweet finish.

I like wheat beers but this is not what I had expected. I prefer the wheat ales like Washington Island Wheat from Capital Brewery.
