A- Cloudy yellow, massive 2 finger head, could of been 3 but alas my glass wasn't big enough.

S- Sweet banana interlaced with spices and lemony citrus notes.

T- Very clean, light hints of spice and banana with a hint of tartness coming through mid sip. Smooth, soft, yet characterful finish.

M- Near perfection.

D- I just need to start trusting that Dan knows what hes doing, and buy the six pack.

I was honestly suprised by this one, clearly the best Hefeweizen this side of the Atlantic.

Dancing Man Wheat is an awesome hefeweizen. It has a hint of tartness which sets it apart from most examples of the style. Hopefully New Glarus brings it back in 2016!

Served in my Great Lakes Christmas Ale snifter.

A: Pours a hazy, murky, pale gold. Absolutely beautiful. Nice golden orange color that fades to a really lovely orange cream color on the sides. It almost looks like Pineapple-Orange-Banana juice. A quarter inch head on the pour that slowly recedes to a thin sheen. Nice lacing on the glass.

S: Mmmm, the banana and clove smells were detectable from two feet away. The aroma on this is luscious and strong, smelling it is an experience in and of itself. As I put the snifter to my nose, the aforementioned banana and clove smack me in the face, with their friends orange and peppercorn close behind. Smells fantastic.

T: I haven't reviewed many of these, but I can tell this is what a great hefe should taste like. Orange, cinnamon, clove with a surprisingly light, sweet finish on the mid. This tastes so darn good, with a lot of flavor and complexity while retaining the light, refreshing qualities I've come to love in this style. I might be crazy, but as this warmed I also picked up on pear notes.

M: Spot on. Well balanced flavors and the carbonation is just right. Refreshing while maintaining enough depth to be interesting.

O: This was my first beer from New Glarus and color me impressed. A truly special hefe-weizen that everyone should be so lucky to try. I imagine it would be as enjoyable on a hot summer day outside on the porch as it is on your couch during college football season. Excellent beer.

Pours a heavily hazed amber with a great two finger head, but quickly recedes to a thin film in the pint glass. This beer could use a litle more head retention. Just the perfect banana ad clove aroma with some light breads mingling throughout the nose. Sweet bread grains hit the palate first, mking way for a nice developmentof banana flavors. Finishing with soft fruits and bready malts with just a touch of herbal hops. This beer is so well balanced ad deadly with a 7.2% abv. I would have never guessed the alcohol was that high. Just outstanding!!!

Thanks to eyncognito for this 12 oz bottle. My love of NG wheat beers is officially on record, so I am anxious to try this.

A: I poured the ale vigourously into my Widmer Bros. hefe glass, stirring up the head and sediment. A full seven fingers of lace arose before settling down and depositing lace around the sides of the glass. The ale is hazy, heavy with yeast sediment. The color approximates an earthy yellow-brown hue that appears on many trees in mid-October.

S: Even in a fresh-from-the-fridge state, the weizen aromas are strong. Wheat starts off with light tartness before the spices coming flying in. Clove and bubblegum are strong but not cloyingly sweet. Faint banana wafts out as well. A lot of nose packed into one glass.

T: Wheat is a great set-up for the ale, softly lulling the palate into a haze before, BAM!, the yeast hits like a hammer. Clove and bubblegum are upfront with a spicy sweetness. Grain flavors return sporadically throughout each sip, acting almost like a 'reset' for the ale. Banana is prominent on the back end, a welcome addition to the party. Orange peel and mango mix into the sweetness in the finish. The alcohol isn't evident but does sneak up on you.

M: The mouthfeel is intense, careening from one flavor to the next at breakneck speed. I like that the ale shows off more than clove, banana and bubblegum. The citrus that emerges is a very welcome addition.

D: Even at 7.2%, this one goes down wicked easy. An authentic weizen with a twist that further cements NG's stature as best wheat brewer in the U.S.

A: Pours an orange color. Looks like any good hefe, hazy as all hell. Off white fluffy head.

S: Big banana and clove scent with cinnamon in the background. Lemon, too.

T: Big, bold flavors of wheaty goodness. Banana, clove, even cinnamon. The more you drink the more you start tasting the lemon, which sticks to the roof of your mouth. If you let it warm up, just the slightest hint of alcohol starts coming through, but its a drying effect; there is no heat or harshness whatsoever.

M: It feels heavy in the mouth, not watery at all. Carbonation is perfect, not too high. It lets the flavors really come through. Dangerously smooth.

Dan has made an absolutely world class brew here. I count down the days when this is to be released. At an alcohol content of 7.2%, this beer is one of the most dangerous brews out there IMO. If you finish a six pack of this (which is just oh so easy to do), you may be in trouble!

12 oz bottle. The beer is a nice deep straw to light orange color with a very nice 3 fingers of thick white head over top that falls very slowly to a finger over top. This brew is certainly cloudy, with tons of yeast in suspension. This one is a damn fine looking hefe. The aroms is dominated by spicy clove ester initially. As it warms, a ton of sweet banana and bubblegum come flowing it, with a subtle wheat creamyness. On the end there is a distinct whiff of alcohol telling me this one is packing some punch. The flavor hits with a very solid creamy wheaty flavor with a very dominant clove spiceyness with the banana fruityness bringing up the aftertaste. I like the solid malt base and the dominance of the spicey ester over the fruity. Mouthfeel is ever so smooth, with a tangible creamy character. At the start of this one, there was a fairly strong carbonation, but now that I'm almost through it, there is little bubble to be felt. I am not sure drinkability could be any better on this one. It has all the flavor and aroma one could ask for in a hefe. For over 7%, the only hint was a puff in the nose, and the nice feeling I find washing over me. This one is damn nice.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, luminous orange-gold body presided over by a voluminous, creamy, statuesque head of fine white foam that exhibits impeccable retention and leaves some dense lace (though not quite as much as I would like). All around, a breathtaking beer.

S: Huge, assertive hefe nose: lots of cloves and banana, but this is a standout in the bubblegum category - which just happens to be my favorite of the classic hefe scents. This brew shows a great mix of spice and sweetness, and it manages to display an authentic hefe aroma but with more intensity than I've ever encountered. Awesome.

T: Starts out with the clove spice, but quickly transitions into a medley of rich malt flavors: bread, fruit (not banana, interestingly - a little darker, like raisins or plums), and finally a finish redolent of bubblegum. Complex and tasty.

M: Nice soft carbonation, but a little thinner of body than I might like.

D: As drinkable as any hefe I've ever had, but significantly higher ABV. Unbelievable.

Notes: This tastes like the Platonic ideal of a hefe: every image, every aroma, every flavor is here, and intensified beyond all expectations. Definitely my favorite hefe of all time. Excellent work, NG - as always!

12oz bottle. Received in trade from alcstradamus. Thanks Adam! Served in a Weizen glass.

A: Massive, four finger of creamy white head that fades slowly. Pours a hazy orange yellow. Crazy active carbonation. Good lacing.

S: Wheat esters. Orange peel, banana and other faint spices like clove. Almost somewhat Belgian like? A small amount of light hops.

T: The wheat, spices and yeast all come together perfectly. Very rich flavors for a Hefe. Great orange, lemon and light fruity notes. Banana flavor is there, but not overpowering. I also tasted some toffee and bready malts. Some faint hops on the finish, but their very subdued.

M: Light bodied. Very smooth. Carbonation is near perfect.

D: Where did my glass go? I was just full! Insanely drinkable. The higher than normal 7.2% ABV doesn't even come into play. Incredibly light, flavorful and refreshing.

Another amazing offering from NG. This is one of, if not the best American Hefewizen's that you can buy. I'm not the biggest Hefe fan, but I could drink this all the time.

Big thanks to BarrytheBear for the opportunity to try this!

A-pours a dark golden amber in color, quite hazy and hard to see through, dark in the center lighter on the edges, tons of slightly off white fuffly and bubbly head all over.

S-tons of citrus up front, lots of oranges, fresh lemon, very fruity bubblegum, the spice takes over, awesome clove aromas with a hint of white pepper.

T-the flavors and balance in this are incredible! this could be the best hefewiezen i've ever tasted. the juicy fruit and bubblegum lay such a great foundation to only be balanced by a tasty spicy clove and white pepper, notes of a floral herbal spice presence with a light bitterness in the back.

M-great feel, soft on the palate, medium bodied and syrupy, strong carbonation to balance, slightly dry finish.

D-awesome beer, has the great balance of a wheat beer from the spice and fruit juiciness, light hop presence in the back with all of the carbonation and body you want to see.

A-Extremely cloudy grain colored body with an unremarkable, but attractive head holding slight lacing. ( I had to fight the grains out of the bottle.)

S-Citrusy sour and malty.

T-Hearty up front with notes of clove detected flowing into a sweet and increasingly tart finish. This one leaves you with that tart sensation quite a while after the sip has made it's decent.

M-Carbonated tingling and refreshing at first then a malty syruplike sensation.

D- This is a very drinkable beer, but the quality put into this beer leads me to enjoy it as if I paid way too much for it. Keep up the good work Dan & Deb. I live in Chicagoland and am contemplating moving to WI so I wouldn't be without NG for any period of time.

(Served in a weizen glass)
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy golden-orange body with strands of tiny carbonation gliding up to a creamy white head that last a good while.
S- The sweet club soda aroma turns to warm cloves and a fresh wheat dough with just a hint of Dijon mustard and a finish of circus peanuts finish.
T- The notes of clove and white bread crust has a nice spice warmth to the cloves. There is a natural bubble gum flavor then a finish of green hops and spice that blend well together.
M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a soft full fizz that enhances the flavor.
D- This beer has some great yeast characteristics that I have not tasted outside of German breweries. The flavor is very drinkable but full and rich while none of the spice/yeast notes overpower other flavors.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Taken from the NGBC sampler 12 pack.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with 2-3 finger of thick white foam. Long lasting retention and lacing everywhere.

Smell is akin to sticking ones nose into a banana bunch.

Taste is slight citrus, full of whaet, with mild spices at the finish. Some cinammon. Good lively carbonation in the mouthfeel. Slight tart finish.

Excellent beer, very drinkable. Top notch.

For a hefeweizen, this is about as close to perfect as it gets. Even though this bottle has started to run a little old, the beer still holds up reasonably well. The sweetness and the spiciness still dominate.

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle, the beer was a hazy straw color with a half inch white head tinted slightly golden. The nose on this one is magnificent. The yeast gives hints of banana with straw in the background while a certain spiciness tickles the nose. The initial taste is smooth with sour banana, candy sugar, sweat cookies, and a measured spiciness. A dose of spicy clove is most noticeable with cinnamon waiting in the weeds. The carbonation is a little more intense than I would like, so the outstanding taste does not last as long as I would prefer. The sour notes mellow as the taste develops. Yet in the aftertaste, the sourness is the primary aspect along with a warming spice. Though this is a summer beer, the warming of the aftertaste says otherwise. Similarly this is an easy drinker, but a 7.2%abv says otherwise.

Hands down the best hefe....no...the best beer I've had in a very very long time.

Poured in to a very frosty mug circa 1970. Sits in the glass very colorful tan/orange with about an inch of head.

First impressions are bananas, cloves, citrus, and some pepper. Swallows very smoothly -- no over carbonation here. Very impressed by the balancing of flavors in this beer. I will not be adding a lemon/orange slice as it would be criminal to the quality of the beer.

This brew does not disappoint. I will be driving up to Wisconsin and pilfering every beer selling establishment of their stock, ripping off my shirt, jumping on the cashier's counter, and demanding MORE!

New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat pours up velvety with a big, cascading white head that nearly overflows the rim over a slightly hazy deep straw-goldenrod body. Head retention is very good-excellent. The aroma is exceptional with a huge wheatberry bread character offset nicely by a juicy fruitiness (banana bread, lemon zest, orange marmalade) followed by a lovely spiciness (allspice, clover honey, crytalized ginger, warm cinnamon). Just a touch of alcoholic complexity wrapped behind the other nuances. The flavor starts off a bit cloying with a huge fruitiness, but a magical touch of spicy Noble hops quickly brings this malty weizenbier under control to creat a harmonious finish. Some alcohol warmth adds to the overall complexity of this fine, medium-full bodied wheat. Big creaminess, great texture, and somewhat filling. Definitely big for the style, but dangerously drinkable. Dan Carey delivers another masterpiece that will have you Oom-pah dancing!

T-Sweet and rich....big on the flavor....overripe bananas and vanilla lead the way along with the sweet wheat malt....finishes with a perfect hit of lemon drops...very sweet and rich tasting....blows the German hefe's out of the water in the richness of its taste...

M-This is a bigass Hefe...really a double hefe...err Imperial Hefe...carbonation is spot on...

D-I love this beer but it borders on being too rich and sweet. Earlier I mentioned how it blows the german hefe's out of the water with its sweet rich flavor....perhaps some would prefer it to be a little less sweet and flavorful...it is really saeet...I could drink more of Ayinger Hefe at a given time but if I had to chose one bottle I would definitely pick this....top notch brew....New Glarus hits another home run...

Poured into my pint glass the beer is a cloudy golden orange. The thick white head is like a dollop of fresh whipped meringue. It settles down fighting the whole way. Leaving thick lace coating the glass.

The aroma is like juicy fruit gum in a glass. Super sweet oranges, bananas and lemons with spices like clove and coriander. Light wafts of yeasty bread dough are pick out as well. I could smell this beer all day.

The flavor is pretty much a mirror of the nose. Sweet oranges, bananas, and lemons. Spices with hints of fresh cut grass and yeast. Not a strong as the nose but right up there.

Medium body with creamy richness that makes this beer super satisfying. Moderate carbonation.

Overall my favorite hefe period. I love this beer anytime of year. Hot days or cold nights. I'm up for a dance with this NG beer.

Blurry mango with an impressively whipped creamy, khaki colored crown. The fantastic looking foam, and better than average looking lace, tells me that this is sure to be well-crafted beer. Of course, seeing the words 'New Glarus' on the label is proof enough.

The nose is exceeding my already high expectations. Talk about nose-filling power! This may be the most clove-intensive hefeweizen on planet earth... and creamy banana is right there riding shotgun. A little less of the spice and a little more of the fruit and it would be perfect.

One sip is all it takes to tell that Dancing Man Wheat is the single best American-brewed hefeweizen in history. I'm tempted to say it's top banana, but then a growler of Live Oak Hefeweizen hasn't yet made the long-awaited trip to my doorstep. Any Texans out there?

One of the best things about this beer is its size. Give me a bulked-up and creamilicious 7.2% ale over a light and airy thirst-quencher any day. All that malt is responsible for boatloads of flavor, sweetness and a glorious mouthfeel. It might be my big beer bias talking, but more of a good thing is a better thing, right?

Even though it flies in the face of the style guidelines, the Cascade hops used in Imperial Weizen were outstanding. This offering doesn't use those hops and isn't grapefruit juicy, which is good because it doesn't need to be a smaller version of that masterpiece.

Another good point (there are so many) is that the tanginess of the wheat is perfectly offset by the sweetness of the malt and the spiciness of the yeast. The hefeweizen banan-o-meter score is an unprecedented 4.5/5.0. Sugared banana is at least as prominent as cloves. This may be the most monkey fruit-intensive beer ever.

The mouthfeel score is a tough call. It was originally 4.5, but the carbonation isn't as soft as it could be and the beer isn't as mouthfilling. It's still more than fine, even if it loses a little something on the swallow.

New Glarus is the best brewery in the great craft brewing state of Wisconsin. It took me a while to get there, but with great beer after great beer after great beer, that fact can no longer be denied. Anyone with a functioning palate can see that Dancing Man Wheat can stand toe-to-toe with Germany's best. Given that country's several hundred year head start, that's something to be proud of. Highly recommended.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into shaker.

Pours a beautiful cloudy golden color with about a one finger head and little lacing.

Smells like a good hefeweizen, with banana and clove with a hint of cinnamon in there too.

Wow, this is a good hefeweizen. Everything from the smell shines through in the taste. Wheat, banana, subtle cinnamon and the spicy clove taste kind of lingers in your mouth. Maybe its the clove, but I also get a subtle mint after flavor, which complements the beer nicely.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Thought it might be a little too carbonated from looking at it, but the carbonation is perfect. Perfectly medium bodied as well.

Overall this is one of, if not, the best hefeweizens out there. This definitely would compete with Weihenstephaner. I really like the cinnamon taste in there, it really adds to the beer, and perfectly complements it. Could drink this beer all night. Can't believe this is 7.2% ABV. Drinks like 4% ABV.

Picked this up at my local Wisconsin shop, just across the border. First 90-degree day of the year seemed like the perfect time to break it out.

Pours a cloudy bright golden yellow. Very nice color. Two finger white head, but it's pretty bubbly, rather than foamy, and it fades fast, leaving little lacing. Looks good, but not in the upper tier of hefes on appearance.

Smell is outstanding. It's the perfect balance of banana sweetness and clove spice, but that description doesn't do it justice. Robust and fruity, but delicately complex at the same time. Wow.

Taste is, likewise, very impressive. Less fruity than in the nose, with a lot more wheat presence. Some delightful herbal hops in the back-end, providing just a shade, a very light touch, of bitterness that balances out the rich sweetness so well. Gentle spice rides the wave all the way through. Again, wow.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Medium-bodied, but deliciously mouth-filling. Carbonation flares up, tickling the mouth and bringing all kinds of depth out of the flavors. And right when I want it to, it drops off, leaving a crisp dry finish. Awesome.

This beer is simply fantastic. About the only way I could imagine improving it is in the appearance. Definitely the best American hefeweizen I've ever had, and I actually like it better than the Weihenstephaner I had just a week ago. Absolutely delicious, and very worth seeking out. I may go back and buy a case of this (and I never, ever, buy that much of a single beer).

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. No bottled date.

(A)- Pours a clear golden orange color that produced a beautiful fluffy white head with awesome retention and is clinging to the sides of the glass.

(S)- Evident clove with bananna and lemon biscuits. Has a slight hint of flowery/vanilla bouquet with a dash of honey sweetness. Beautiful creamy banana in this.

(T)- Lush ripe banannas and bubblegum. light clove with a light biscuit-like lemon.

(M)- Plenty of carbonation with a great smooth flavor. Balanced well for the style with a creamy banana front and a lightly dry wheat end.

(D)- A fantastic Hefe beer that fits perfectly with this time of the year. Wonderfully balanced and easy drinking. New Glarus keeps surprising me again and again.
