4.45/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Cloudy with a dark yellow tint. Substantial head and lacing.
Smell: Standard hefeweizen smells, but hops are also present.
Taste: This is a hoppy hefeweizen, if that can be believed! However, the hops here are not so much the biting kind, but rather add a neat twist to the flavor profile. The hops fortify the strong yeatiness to create a taste sensation!
Mouthfeel: Thinner than many hefes, but this doesn't detract much, seeing as this is a more than a traditonal hefe. Manages to be almost creamy, despite the light body.
Drinkability: Great beer to have several of, if you're craving wheat OR hops. More of a year-round beer than many hefes, not as summery as some wheat beers.
Notes: I love New Glarus' amalgamation of a hefeweizen and an APA! The best characteristics of both style complement each other well. One might guess an attempt at combining these two styles would end being weird, but New Glarus has accomplished the feat with grace.

I ended up with a bottle of this after a weekend road trip with my buddies. A friend of mine commented that he was going to clear out his fridge and bring some beer along for our weekend away. This was still left in my cooler once I got home and I drank it about a week later. The first thing I want to comment on is that I noticed that there hasn't been any reviews made on this beer in over a year. When was it last brewed? I realized that I was drinking a beer that is at least a year old. (no "bottled on" date on the bottle). I don't think this is a beer that is supposed to age so it may affect in a negative way what I think about it.
The first sip was almost medicinal or acidic in it's taste. I didn't like it. As I drank it though, I got a pleasant wheat taste and some fruits underneath this. It wasn't anything special but certainly went down easy enough once I got going.
