I spend two months each summer in Germany (a swell time to drink hefeweizen), and there a handful that I think are wonderful, and the rest are a bit more dürftig. I am AMAZED (and delighted) at having this hefe in the states, as most US weizens are kind of scary-faint imitations (if not bizarre aberrations) of the absolute top expressions. Over there Schöfferhofer, Maisels, König Ludwig ,and Schneider are most satisfying, especially nice and fresh on tap, at least up in Hamburg - - big, rich, fruity, zesty. This dancing fellow, over here (Madison, WI) is happy, happy solace, and great stuff.
A 12 fl oz bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It was a hazy dark straw orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention but left only slight lacing. Aromas of nice wheat, banana, clove, banana bread and bubblegum. Tastes much like the aroma, there’s wheat, banana, clove and bubblegum with a hint of fuzzy peach and cinnamon. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, maybe I had too high hopes to start with, but it wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. I much preferred Bubbler over Dancing Man Wheat, maybe it was the cinnamon spices at the end. Having said that, it’s not bad and still definitely drinkable. GTAEgeek (2343) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2017
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. poisoneddwarf (2625) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2017
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. bubblehouse (1554) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Has a real banana flavor to it. Just a really good solid beer all the way around jmohno (1652) - Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2017
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. commonmac (1314) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2017
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. randy1969 (70) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2017
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 jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2017
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. trentejgordon (7) - - MAY 16, 2017 does not count
Effervescent fruity beer with a great aroma. Perfect summer beer! Would buy again!
