This is simply one AMAZING brew. I have purchased as many bottles of this as i could find while it was still being brewed. Unlike any beer i’ve tasted. The complexity of flavors, the impressive head, the utterly unique aroma and silky, creamy feel in the mouth is unmatched. This is a bold and amazing creation from New Glarus and i hope to see this brewed again in the future. This is perhaps their best so far.

Unbelievably good. Not generally wiezen fan but this one takes it to new level. Huge cloves loved that characteristic, no real banana which is perfect. Some lemon some yeast and dough. Big ABV but not noticeable. I. Flavor that is, did get me pretty buzzed. bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2008 Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big thick frothy white head. This is a Weizen on steroids. Huge banana, clove, citrus. Perfect balance between all elements. High alcohol content is balanced by thick body. Crisp, refreshing, smooth. Everything a weizen should be. This is one of Dan Carrey’s finest achievements. It is rare to find a weizen of this quality in the states. drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Nuzzling up to perfection. What an uber hop weizen a la American style. Absolutely slammed the Belgians here. Poured with a huge foamy, frothy, off white head and great lace. Aroma is banana, yeast, bubblegum, malt, hop, Flavor is largely like nose, plus yeast bitterness leaps out along with sweetness of the malts and propelled by the alcohol. Body is outstanding and ditto carbonation- couldn’t be exceeded. Finish is like flavor and lingers with diminishing presence to a point where I can’t find the point only that I want another point. The occurance of excellence. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2012
hazy gold with a dense white head. clingy full body with high carbonation.

aroma: bright tart wheat, bitter orange, citrusy hops, green banana, apple, alcohol, and some spicy yeast notes. somewhere between Vitus, Orval, and an imperial wit.
taste: tart wheat and bitter orange dominate; backed by notes of banana, apple, citrusy hop bitterness, pale malt sweetness, nutmeg, and alcohol warmth. there are occasional, subtle hints of plastic, common in hefe-weizen, but none of the smokey or rubbery phenols.
very complex and intriguing; combining the best qualities of Orval with the best qualities of weizenbock, with a little panache of its own.
pours a cloudy dark yellow-almost orange with a slight head. Has a nice yeast , hop and citrus aroma. Thick and very smooth on the palate. Starts out with a mild citrus taste followed by a nice yeasty flavor typical of good weizen beers. Ends nicely with a blend the hops and yeast flavor. Brings back memories of my weekends at the Essen House in Madision WI....ahh the good old days!
