Another great bottle sent down from BeerFMAndy. Thanks!

Poured into a tall weizen glass. This beer pours with a massive amount of foam, which dissipates to leave a thick beige head capping off a clear dark amber beer. This is darker than I had anticipated, but it's a good color to go with the 'Fox' moniker. Sweet aromas stand out. Banana, clove, sugar cookies. Mellow feel. Carbonation is low-to-moderate. Sweet banana bread, mild caramel, clove, bready finish. This was an easy drinker. Sweet beer that was refreshing and uplifting. Not a go-to for me, but a pleasant beer anyways.

12oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

(A)- Pours a clear caramel colored amber. Produced a nice cap of off-white creamy froth. Good retention and lace.

(S)- Smooth/subtle bits of banana, wheat, lemon, and clove. Lots of biscuit.

(T)- Similar to the smell, though far more caramel-like malt with the wheat, banana, and clove.

(M)- Good carbonation level. A good balance, though a lot more malty for the style in a caramel-like sweetness.

(D)- Overall, yet another tasty beer from New Glarus with their typical subtle twists on a traditional style.

12oz bottle poured into a Pint glass

A - deep amber in color, very thick 1" plus head that slowly dwindled leaving a thin cap that lasted through the entire glass. minimal lacing that quickly slides back down the sides.

S - mild banana and a touch of cloves, slight maltiness.

T - nice wheat profile with a bit of the banana. a slight tangy aftertaste.

M - above average carbonation and a medium body for the style

O - really attractive beer, pleasant aroma and easily drinkable. havent had many Kristalweizen's prior to this, but enjoy the style, have always been a Hefeweizen fan. the carbonation is spot on, and this is an emjoyable beer. i see this as a good beer for late spring time.
