4.05/5  rDev -4%

A: half finger head without much retention, only scattered lacing on a clear bright golden body.

S: rich lemon custard aroma, wheat, tart orange. Minimal peppercorn. No musty or overly grainy notes that overwhelm the sweet notes.

T: very clean, wheat and grain base with some sweet corn and both sweet and tart lemon.

M: light body and moderate carbonation. crisp and clean.

Overall: this may be as good as a hefe gets. The ABV for the style is high but covered well. Complex for the genre, a little too sweet.

A - A small white head of foam on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Spicy hops, musty wheat, and a bit of pepper.

T - Bready malt up front with slightly fruity yeast in the middle. Finishes with an odd, soda water like quality and a touch of tartness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - weird, one dimensional and a bit bland. I'm not sure what the idea was here, but it really isn't working for me.

4.08/5  rDev -3.3%

A - The color was a orange/apricot with a little head and some retention.

S - The wheat really stood out to me and kind of over poured everything else.

T - Taste of wheat with a hint a spice

M - I thought the body was very nice, well carbonated and went down really smooth for a hefeweizen

O- Overall this was a pretty decent beer and if your into hefeweizens you would really like this beer.

Poured down the center of a Left Hand balloon glass from a 12oz bottle. I know it should be a weizen glass but I don't have one on hand at the moment.

Appearance: A slightly hazy golden body with a huge three finger highly-carbonated head. The head slowly recedes and leaves a halo of foam. A moderate amount of lacing.

Smell: An aroma of creamed sweetcorn dominates with hints of wheat, banana, bubblegum, citrus, and spice.

Taste: A taste that matches the flavor; creamed sweetcorn and wheat give way to a burst of mouthwatering banana, orange, and citrus. Plenty of spice and pepper on the finish. Delicious.

Mouth: Medium body with quite a fair amount of carbonation. A slight prickliness from the carbonation compliments the pepper and spice finish.

The aroma, the variety of flavors, the mouthfeel... I love this beer. New Glarus hit a homerun with this one.
