A: Pours a beautiful red-copper with a huge white head that looks creamy and lasts a good long while and leaves thick lacing across the glass. Carbonation streaming from the bottom.
S: Woah, this beer is extremely reminiscent to their retired (and my personal favorite) Crack'd Wheat. I get tons of clove and tons of cinnamon and it just smells absolutely fantastically fresh and bold and full of wheaty goodness.
T: Clove and cinnamon battle each other out as a light fruitiness parts their way. It finishes with a taste of wheat, then a very light spiciness remains on the palate. Just a tiny bit of bitterness to let you know you are drinking a beer. A lemon zest hop character is noticeable as well.
M: Light-medium, refreshing, and surprisingly, not overcarbonated. Maybe even a touch creamy; smooth as all hell.
All in all, this beer is an awesome release from New Glarus. I highly recommend picking this one up, because if there is one thing New Glarus does exceptionally well (besides their fruit beers) is their wheat beers. I just wish they would not have ceased production of Crack'd Wheat.

My first of this style. Got from a trade. Pours a deep orange red with large creamy head that has just a hint of orange color to it. Aroma is strong pears, wheat, funky yeast, banana, more sweet pears. Very nice. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Tastes like biting into a fresh pear. Hints of cinnamon that do not overpower, but supplement the beer very nicely. Not overly sweet at all and is quite refreshing. Nicely balanced brew that one could drink all night. This is really fantastic.
