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.

Thank You Thank You Dan Carey for following your bliss in making Bavarian style Hefeweisse ! This is exceptional and worth pour after pour ! This will be a winner and hopefully lure people away form the "psuedo wheat beers" that mass marketing has pulled starting beer fanatics in with... The crack of the cap gives and audible note of good carbonation typical of a good hefeweizen. The aroma is malt/bread with hints of clove/lemon and spicy wheat aroma. The first sip and one slips into a time warp where you find yourself in a Bavarian beer garten smiling over the thought of what’s in your glass. It is effervescent, malt and flavorful. Light straw color with the traditional yeast cloudiness and moussy head. The finish is bready/sweet and with a nice bite of carbonation. I am going to have to preach on this beer and recommend you go and purchase a sixer or two of this wonderful beverage. Man can only hope that this is reviewed by New Glarus and made a yearly beer and not simply a seasonal. Thank you New Glarus for raising the bar once again. Cheers !

12 oz. bottle. Pours an unclear, bright yellow color, with a medium, fizzy, white head. The aroma is straw, banana, orange juice, cloves, and lemon zest. Sweet and doughy, with a light, crisp, bitter finish. Light to medium body, with a chewy, creamy mouthfeel, and a lovely, sharp finish. This is simply fantastic.

12 oz bottle from the variety pack. Pours cloudy golden with a thick off-white head with great retention. Aroma is clove, bubblegum, banana, wheat, peppery. Taste is sweet and spicy with noticeable but not overwhelming alcohol. Flavors match the aroma. Just like a real German weizenbock. So good.

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 (2179) - 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.
