The little lady picked this up in Bumfuct Wisconsin. I haven’t heard of this little guy so I’m excited to try it! New Glarus is by far my favorite brewery. Drank from my Surlyfest pint glass.

Appearance- Pours a fairly dark reddish orange with a decently small bright white head. The beer maintains a nice head the entire time along with zero lacing.
Smell- Definitely sort of a hybrid Hef like nose with a decent amount of banana and clove right from the get go. The beer smells quite a bit sweeter than a normal Hef as the crystal adds a very different sort of smell with that yeast. Maybe a touch of toast but for the most part it’s just doughy and wheaty.
Taste- Nothing like the smell. The beer is actually sort of dry and not all that flavorful. Some bread crust toastiness to start followed by a light (I stress light) dose of spice. Just a hint of clove and a hint of banana. There’s a twang of something lighty sour and a touch of bubblegum in the finish.
Mouthfeel- Sort of thin but nothing terrible with a light zesty carbonation.
Drinkability- Not bad but the smell is much better than the taste. I feel like it’s sort of boring. Almost like it’s washed out – one flavor needs to shine a bit more than the other but neither does. Glad I tried but not my favorite.
