Color is a pale golden straw color with a big white head that keeps a light cover over the top of the beer from the high carbonation.
Aroma- big bready malt balanced with esters and cloves. Smell like a good breakfast in a glass. Taste- Sweet pilsner malt with a good amount of bread. Banana and cloves are balanced perfectly with the malt neither dominates. Some more sweetness probably from the alcohol that is a hidden 7.2%. Finishes semi dry with a slight noble bitterness. One of my favorite beers.

Not one of my favorite styles but I noticed this getting rave reviews and I always look forward to trying New Glarus's new offerings so I picked some Dancing Man up. Pours a glowing hazy orange with huge amounts of carbonation exploding to the surface. A two finger eggshell head formed on the pour that became creamy as it sat without losing any size. This is really a great looking hefe.

Pretty standard aromas come from this hefe but what makes it special is it just seems more pronounced than other hefeweizens I've had in the past. Good dose of wheat twang with a nice sprinkling of freshly squeezed orange juice. Warm banana bread and there's some mild clove in the background but the yeast adds another layer of spiciness. Begs to be drank.

Flavor is along the lines of the aroma but more subdued and seamless. Wheat is much bolder in the flavor easing into the mild clove and yeast spiciness with a solid sampling of ripe banana. Finishes with a nice touch of juicy orange on the swallow.

The mouthfeel is as good as I can imagine coming from a hefe. Medium bodied with an incredible smooth creaminess on the palate. It's like velvet draping my tongue.

This is a refreshing supremely enjoyable hefe that I could drink the day away.

This Is the best hefeweizen I've drank to date and one I will continue to pick up when in season. There's is in no way an overpowering clove presence like I've run into with many others. New Glarus hits another homerun.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy straw with no head.

Smell is great hefeweizen aroma with a light wheat and sweet banana, bubblegum and clove.

Taste is like the nose. Great German Hefeweizen flavor with more banana and bubble gum with the right amount of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a fine tingle of carbonation and nice body.

Overall a great German style wheat beer. No surprise from NG!
