bottle pour...very pleasant, light aroma with clove and banana, along with other fruits is present...far from overpowering, but nice! perfectly translucent copper pour leads to a very easy drinking brew that is very wheat forward and not particularly complex, but with nice background notes similar to the nose. light and clean on the palate but with an intriguing, lingering flavor...quality brew to quaff on a cold night when in the mood for something lighter

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber with a fluffy tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of wheat with backing light fruits, particularly strawberry and and a bit of clove. Flavor has a good amount of light fruits with some banana and strawberry that come out in the finish with some light wheat up front.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 12 oz bottle. Clear honey brown with a fluffy bone head. Nose is wheat, coriander and slight citrus peel. Medium light with fizzy carb. A touch creamy on the backside. Taste is green banana, chewed bubblegum, lemon pith and clove. Understated but still pushing the style.

flatmatt (1585) - Northville, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, slightly amber golden with an off-white head. Very yeasty aroma, clove, banana, green and red apple, just a bit overripe and not to my preferences. Flavor is definitely has yeast as well, cloves, apple, some butterscotch even (not the bad kind), strawberry, hint of hops. Very surprising for a kristallweizen, really, quite a bit of flavor. Still finishes clean, though.

jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with white head. Nose/taste of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, sweet malt, mixed fruits and grains. Creamy foam head. Medium body.

IrishBoy (4210) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 14, 2012
12 oz bottle from Doodler. Nose is thick with bananas, wheaty yeast bread, and light cloves. Clear copper orange with a big offwhite head. Flavor is peppery, a little bananas, mild bitterness, and cloves. Finishes with light bitterness.

Not too bad. Definitely a step up from the Unplugged Imperial Weizen they released a while back. Dancing Man Wheat is one of the best non-German wheat beers I’ve tried, so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise. Pours a nice, clear golden-yellow. Aroma and flavor dominated by cloves, sour banana, and other esters. Nice, clean mouthfeel and dry finish to the beer.

scoobysnak (333) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2012
A nice copper color to it with a fairly decent white head that vanished fairly quickly. Some good yeast flavors but the palate is definitely lacking.

Why would they do a kristalweizen? Characteristic New Glarus wheat quality and yeast, but lacking palate. Aroma and flavor are thin and lacking, there is just not much there. Well carbonated, and a big white head. Copper color. It is almost like a small beer. It is drinkable, and no real flaws, but not not one I especially enjoy. One of the few misses from Neww Glarus.

Bottle: Dark copper color with a thin beige head. Mostly malts and some wheat, I did get a little bit of the crisp spiciness from the cloves, but nothing more.
