Bottle from Iowaherkeye. . as a bonus! What a gentleman! The pour is very cloudy with a tall , dense white head. Mm. the aroma on this is as full as the best of the hefeweizens. Very rich wheaty scents tantalize my nostrils with hints at peppers, cloves, banana,. . .the mouthfeel is right at the threshold of being refreshing and being a savory sipper. Excellent tart, grainy flavors round things out as the fruity, banana sweetness keeps things a little juicy. Deep complex spiced notes help keep the palate interested. This is an excellent take on the style without any real departure from what I would expect. I’d say this is just as good, if not better, than the finest authentic German examples. weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Thanks to dickinsonbeer for this...
Appears a hazy gold with a 2 finger white head that fades into a soapy head of batter. Tons of spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of banana, toasted bread, spices, clvoes, pepper, and tart wheat.
Taste is of the aforementioned aromas with an estery tastiness that keeps this Hefe nice and interesting.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, citrusy, spritzy up front, with a nice balance of sweetness and tartness that come together for a well done brew. Odeed (1805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 27, 2007

12 ox bottle shared by WeeHeavySD,v is trade with Kingpin. Hazy otrange with lots of head. Depsite being a german style hefe, I was getting some belgian yeat along with the normaly banana in the nose, but whatever it was it smeel goooood.. Sweet a light, despite the 7.21%abv kick, Tons of interesting complexities with some noticable cinamon. Why can’t every wheat beer be this good?

100th Rating of this brew. 12oz via kingpin IPA. Thought I should crack this after Naven liked it so much. Shared with Bikesandbeer. Orange cloudy pour with a generous 2 finger puffy bright white head. Fantastic banana hefe nose. Sweet, light, flavorful, sweet, holy crap this is delicous, the banana really comes through. I could drink this everyday. I’m in awe of the quality here!

Clove, banana, gumball- let me get all the wheat cliches out of the way so I can focus on that fact that this is hands down the best wheat beer I’ve had. As much flavor as you can possibly imagine for the style. Raises expectations beyond reach for anyone else making a wheat. A summer beer with winter complexity.

12 oz bottle from Jimbowood. Fuckin A, this is about as good as it gets. New Glarus has figured out how to take everything that is good about a Hefeweizen and somehow expanded on it. This is like a double Paulaner. This beer smells like a pack of Juicy fruit gum. Banana, clove and bubble gum dominate in the flavor. Words can’t describe how good this is. This is a style that is unappreciated. barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2007

first off...WOW, what a great beer! pours a hazy, yet brilliant golden orange with a loooooong lasting orangey-white head. after 10 minutes of sitting in illini08’s weizen glass, it still had a 1/2" pillowy head and after several sips, great lacing. aroma seemed to be your typical german hefe, yeast, clove and some spice. flavor and palate, this is something special! it has it all, bubblegum, banana, yeast, clove and some spice, all blended perfectly. anyone who has read many of my reviews, knows I don’t like a lot of carbonation. I was concerned upon pouring this one since it initially had a huge head and lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. turns out, Dancing Man Wheat has such a soft creamy mouthfeel, it has to be experienced to be fully understood. truly a special beer and grossly under-rated.
Bottle shared by Styles: Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, yeasty, pale malts, wheat and some spices. Flavor, bready, yeasty, spices, banana and some other light fruity notes, wheat as well. Pretty good. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2007
