12oz bottle picked up at new glarus a few weeks back... Pours a mostly transparent caramel copper brownish hue and topped with a medium fluffy white head... Aromas of grass, sweet honey, herbal tea, toasted grain. Seems like a lot goin on just from the nose alone. Distinct but nit sure how much I truly like it... Caramel and toasted semi-sweet husked grain upfront with subordinate grape dark fruit as a secondary layer that allows a touch if tartness to come through very late. Pretty light bodied and extremely easy going. Carbonation level provides some life as well without being distracting. Didn’t think I would like this as much as I did.

Bottle from Reilly’s in Madison. Pours a gigantic white head on light orange body. Retained one-half inch of head. Spicy, slightly yeasty aroma. Mouthfeel is a tad above average. Taste is spicy and catchy, a little yeasty. Nothing like I expected, it was most drinkable. Got good cinammon. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Pours a clear nutty copper with thick frothy tan tinged head. Aroma is earthy nut, bubblegum, malts. Flavor is bubblegum, caramel and almond. Body is light yet creamy with definite carbonation. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2011
ddfrazee with the hookup for me! Bad ass! Clear reddish/brown pour. Cream colored head. Aroma has brown sugar, grains, banana, clove. Flavor is lightly sweet, a good dose of banana, toffee. Fuck this is damn good! cbfobes (2887) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2011

Bottle courtesy of arkurzynski - much thanks. Banana, clove, and toffee wheat malt aroma. Clear amber color with giant tan head. Lightly sweet banana, clove, and toffee wheat malt flavor. Nice body and highly carbonated. Excellent - a Dunkel Kristallweizen. benfergy (248) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - OCT 23, 2011
The aroma is rather Belgian in style- the strong yeast is fruity (somewhat cherry-like), and the malt has a bread-like aroma. It appears as a brown beer with substantial head. The taste is very smooth, somewhat smokey. The palate has a great smoothness, although it would be nice to have more of a body. Overall, it’s a great beer, and one that I highly recommend (like many beers from New Glarus). drowland (9175) - Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2011
10/21/11. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes. What a way to start my weekend in WI! Surprisingly dark, almost amber, pour with a huge, thick, creamy khaki head that lats forever and laces in sticky clumps. Nice spice aroma hits the nose first followed by light banana, cream, and vanilla. Nice light banana and cream flavor with a touch of caramel. This is tasty and I could drink this by the gallon. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Clear amber with a very large ecru-esque slowly fading head. Aroma is yeasty and spicy with clove, mild fruit and toasted malt. Over-carbonated and bland with wheat, light banana and semi-noble hops. I like their other wheat beers but this one falls short. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 19, 2011
12oz bottle, courtesy of pantanap. Thanks, Kan! Pours a bright, clear orange-amber color; creamy light-tan head with excellent retention and lacing; great pour. Cloves and nutmeg in the aroma, along with a creamy banana quality underneath; not effusive, but solid, with a light lemony citrus. Medium body; effervescent carbonation; creamy clove and nutmeg character alongside a creme brulee core that’s both creamy and quite light on the tongue; hugely drinkable, absolutely perfect mouthfeel. Finish is toasty, lightly husky from the wheat, and dry. Nomnomnom, Dan Carey.
