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.

Beautiful beer. Soft tang, cloves, citrus yeast. Nice looking hefe...though less head. Tastes clean and creamy citrus. Mouthfeel perfect. Could drink a crap ton. It is good to live in WI.

Light orange,fluffy head, hazy. Zesty bannna and clove aroma. Citrus and fruit , clove is bigger in taste, spice, zesty finish. 7.2%? thats bigger than the average hefeweizen. Soft, somewhat slick. Peppery citrus finish. Pretty good , Im not big on clove, this is more clove forward.

VERY tasty and smooth. nothing offensive here whatsoever. bit of clove and sweetness and extremely drinkable. new glarus has one heck of a reputation for being some of the smoothest beers around.

Bottle at Uber Tap Room with GLBTQ crew. Weird flute glass. Hazy yellow and golden with minimal head. Nose has traditional banana and cloves with a light funk. Taste is a pleasant banana with wheat undertones. Very much in the vein of other hefeweizens I’ve sampled. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A good representation of the style. I would ask this to join me on the dance floor for an Eric Clapton track at least one more time.

From the tap at Tofflers Pub and Grill in New Glarus. Pours hazy golden colored with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma if sweet banana, apples, and cinnamon.. Flavor is malts, banana, pears and apples. Decent, but I just smell a little too much banana and cinnamon for my liking

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 Pours a hazy yellow on tap with bubbly white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of mild banana and clove esters over a nice sweet malty wheat underneath. Taste is bigger on all aspects, but smooth and clean with a very light body. Wow, open fermented goodness.

ctipping (2065) - Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Hazy orange. Big white head. Smells of clove, banana, wheat, bubblegum, and a little fruity yeastiness. Tastes much more wheaty. Banana. Spicy clove in the back end. A little bubblegum in the finish with sweet banana fruitiness lingering. High carbonation. Medium body. I don’t drink a lot of hefes, so I don’t have a lot of comparison knowledge, but I’m really impressed.

Nice aroma of cinnamon and clove hit your nose right when you open the bottle. Appearance is golden yellow in color with a nice fading white head. Taste of clove and some spices hit your taste buds. medium body, lively carbonation Also sits well on the palate. Overall another solid beer from New Glarus.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with some head and a little retention. Nose of yeast, cloves, banana esters, and fruit. Taste follows the nose with a little bubble gum tossed in.
