2.6/5 rDev -32.6%
Big thanks to BeerFMAndy for getting a nice box of New Glarus out to me. Served in a New Glarus tasting glass.
Pours a medium golden-copper color. Not sure how a Kristalweizen ends up this way, but it's far, far too dark. Short white head. The nose carries some light yeasty notes plus a bit of grain. Not too much going on. The flavor is is similar, with a bit too much bready malt coming through. Body is medium and a bit heavy.

A- amber color more of a dunkelweise color
S- little banana and a hint of cloves
T- Something was a little of tasted a little oxidized w/ a banana flavor on the back end
M- medium body
O- meh, I like New Glarus, but not a fan of this beer, bought a 6 pack hopefully, I can do some trading in my homebrew club for it.

poured from a bottle into a pint glass...
pours a nice golden-amber - almost like an apple cider in color - with a generous, slow-fading white head that falls to show minimal lacing.
smells heavy of apple at the start which faded quickly to banana and bubble gum.
the taste is a surprise in that it is so subtle in everything...nothing is really coming through for me here, I'm at a loss...the only thing that I'm getting is bubble gum, which I don't care for.
the mouthfeel is solid - good carbonation and a lingering bit of tingle on the tongue.
overall I'm really not sure how to rate this - at first, from the appearance and smell, I had high-hopes, but the taste was so subtle and almost bland for me that I'm not really a fan at first tasting.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is dark golden colored with a lasting white head. Too dark for the style. The aroma is similar to a dunkel weizen, with wheat and some dark fruit presence. A bit sweet and malty. I would prefer a lighter color and body, with less malt presence. Not what I look for in a beer of this style. Overall, this was just ok.

Pours a clear copper color with two fingers of thick white head.
Smells of big clove notes with some banana and cracked wheat.
Big clove with some wheat and slight drying, clean bitterness on the finish.
Mouth is light bodied with ample carbonation and a drying finish.
I really do understand why people like wheat beers, but they're just not my cup of tea especially the German style examples that feature the estery yeast notes.

12 oz poured into a weizen glass. Pours with a nice and creamy head. Darker than what I expected, bordering the amber ale color. The head is also much darker than it should be. Brilliant clarity as expected. Good head retention and lacing.
Spicy clove and some malty sweetness in the aroma. Perfumy wheat malt. Taste is slightly fruity sweet and overall subtle. Aftertaste has richer notes of perfume and spice. Light bodied with a refreshing crispness. Just a tiny bit of bitterness at the back. Dry finish.
Overall refreshing and easy drinking but it's thoroughly forgettable.
3.5, 3, 3, 4, 3
