12 oz. bottle Hazy, honey colored pour into an 8 oz. tasting stange. Silky smooth, 2 finger butter colored head with some soapy lacing.

The nose is predominantly ripe banana, fresh ground clove, allspice, lemon rinds & bubble gum (?)!WOW

Not surprising that the taste follows the nose closely with a little more definition. Sweet bubble gum, warm banana bread, brown sugar, cloves & honey. There's a slightly medicinal after taste. A tart crisp finish with a hint of pepper. The spices are now more pronounced in the nose...brisk & refreshing.

The mouth is well carbonated, smooth & creamy with a clean, lingering texture on the tongue.
I can't help but be reminded of Christmas potporri.

Pretty easy to drink considering the ABV. This was a relatively unfamiliar style for me & my ability to compare is limited. A little too clove-y for me & one was enough...probably not something I'd go out of may way for again, but worth trying.

Poured into a pint glass this beer had an orange, cloudy golden color. A nice creamy white head with good lacing. This beer had a very spicy aroma. There was hints of clove, orange and a bit of ginger. It was nice and creamy with a solid wheat after taste, similar to other beers in this category. This is a nice summer brew, but wouldn't hold up in the winter months in WI. This was a good beer, but not my favorite New Glarus brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Yellow-orange with one inch of dense and creamy white foam.

S - Somewhat muted aroma with an even balance of banana and clove.

T - Nice banana and clove esters with a slightly sour citrus tang. Sweet malty breadiness that becomes a little cloying. A tad boozy for my taste, and I can't decide whether the cinnamon flavor is a good touch.

M - Medium body, smooth and creamy. Good carbonation.

D - This is closer to weizenbock territory than hefeweizen. Alcohol is too high and while I do like a sweeter hefe, this is a bit much. Realistically, I can't drink more than one in a sitting.

Appearance: It pours orange in color with well over an inch of fluffy white head. It is very hazy as a wheat beer should be.4
Smell: It is nothing but cloves in the aroma almost over powering with the first sniff.3
Taste: Cloves, banana, and cinnamon are the dominant flavors. I am guessing they were going for hefeweizen style wheat. Wow that is a lot of clove.3
Mouthfeel: The beer flows nicely around the palate easy drinking a good beer for a warm summer day.3.5

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color wheat with a medium foamy head with average retention and some minimal lacing. Aroma of cloves are dominating with some discernable wheat and overall a quite big malt base. Taste is a mix between some cloves and some big malt base and is not as close to the style as I was expecting. Either there is too much wheat and the beer is veering toward a wheat wine or maybe there is too much barley but I thought the malt base was too sweet for the style and didn't provide enough refreshment. Also, at the risk of sounding too traditional, I would have like if more banana ester would have showed. Definitely not the best weizen out there and probably over rated and not the best beer from a very good brewer.
