A - A murky orange with a towering white head. Excellent lacing.

S - Banana and wheat with a slight booze smell.

T - Crisp and refreshing. Solid banana, lemon and wheat taste with a little booze taste in the background.

M - Smooth and creamy. Well carbonated.

D - Goes down quickly but the higher than normal ABV for a hefe keeps one from drinking more than a couple.

Another solid beer from New Glarus. Very refreshing and I will definitely turn to again.

Bottle shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan!

The beer is hazy, appearing golden yellow hued with a towering white head. Excellent retention and lacing. An all around stellar appearance. The aroma is sweet, with prominent banana scents. Very nice flavor, albeit sweeter than is customary for the style, though typical of New Glarus. Lots of banana and sweet malt. Not as refreshing or quaffable as a lighter, traditional hefeweizen, but certainly tasty and delicious. Light to medium bodied, with alcohol content well disguised. Wow, this is 7.2%? Overall, quite enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this beer. Another gem from New Glarus.

Pours a cloudy golden pale amber color with a HUGE stiff off white head that resists fading, decomposing like an ice cream float, leaving spotty patterns of Belgian lacing behind. The smell is AMAZING...Belgian yeast, harvest fruit, pears...banana. The mouth feel is lightly carbonated and full bodied...very smooth. Full flavored, the taste mirrors the nose. Sharing this with my sons...they are REALLY loving it! Where did this come from...definitely under my radar. True drinkability..very satisfying. Many thanks out to maximum12 for this opportunity!!!!

Deep foggy amber color with extremely tight eggshell white head of suds.

Wheaty with clove and banana and a hint of lemon zest.

Like the nose. Heavy on the wheat! This is the best Hefe I've had.

Medium bodied. Big and rich. Two words I never thought I would say for a Hefeweizen. Slight sharpness from the carbonation activates a lot of flavor.

I can't even believe the ABV in this. This goes down so easy. Easily the best wheat beer I've had. Breaks a lot of stereotypes for this style. Outstanding beer!

Grabbed this in early summer 2011 during a Great Lakes region beer tour.

Poured into a 0.5L Staropramen glass. This is a pale, light gold color. Foam formation was massive, off-white and slightly rocky. Retention is good.

Freshly peeled banana features prominently in the nose, as one might expect from this style. Classic bubble gum noted underneath. Hops hard to detect but this is ok.

Flavor includes another nod to the banana but an equally present, balanced clove is here, too. Bready malt. Bitterness is rather low. Finishing dry.

Medium in body with a moderate/moderate high level of carbonation.

Though this beer has been in my fridge for roughly half a year, I'm very impressed with the subtle and balanced flavor profile it offers. The banana/clove/bready malt balance is well done leading to well rounded profile that makes for an enjoyable session.
