Truly the best Hefe’ i’ve ever had. It’s not too much, but not too subtle. I love the scent of cloves and cinnamon. Beautiful straw color and lacing on the glass. By far my favorite brew from New Glarus. It’s a definate must try for any wheat beer fan. dreamflower (790) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
This was a great experience. Tingly, sweet, beautiful. Everything you’d want in a hefeweizen. Markymarx (8) - - JAN 10, 2014 does not count
Pours a bright gold with a thick white head that dissipates in an appropriate time. Keeps a nice thin layer of white over the top. Smells of banana and clove. First taste is banana with a lingering clove finish. seuinoz (257) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2017
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. grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2008 Pours a cloudy light orange color with a rather large head. Aroma of banana, cloves, and light citrus. Nicely carbonated, beautiful sweetness. This is everything that a hefeweizen should be.

Based on 1.5 bottles and one more to come i think this might be one of the best beers ever. hands down the best German hefe, even over weihenstephaner. uber creamy texture. rich and smooth vanilla, banana, and bubblegum. just totally balanced and delicious. God damn it. Now, i’m just pissed that i’ll probably never be able to have this again and that i missed all their other hefeweizens. badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours a cloudy golden color with a slightly orange hue. Head is soft and pillowy white. Aroma is strong with clove, banana, and hints of cinnamin and ginger. Clove burst onto the tongue with some spice mixed in. Banana brilliantly comes into play in the middle, leaving you with a spicy banana bread finish. Full bodied and highly carbonated; a little less body would be perfect, but this is so close. I’ve been drinking tons of this since it was released, and will continue drinking it until it’s all gone. I hope they continue making this one; it is a masterpiece. Another amazing beer from an amazing brewer. Do not change the recipe! swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2012
When I imagine a beer, I imagine something that will leave me with a memory. This brew fits the description perfectly. It pours a beautiful gold color reminiscent of a normal beer. What discerns this brew from the rest are the scents emanating from the brim of my glass. Odors of bananas and cloves take over the immediate surroundings of the glass. Since my first taste, all I can imagine is bananas and cloves. As far as wheat beers are concerned this one takes the cake....phenomenal!! Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Poured golden cloudy yellow with clean white frothy head. Strong banana smell. So strong it has an essence of bubble gum. Taste is also bubble gum with mice mouthfeel and a spicy finish which is probably attributed to the Bavarian yeast. A very good representation of the style.
