look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured from a bottle into a tucher glass in the classic hefeweizen pour. beer has been out less than a month, so even without a dated bottle, i know its pretty fresh.

a- pours a clear amber color with a huge billowing thick white head. like a clear heffeweizen basically right in the style.

s- huge amounts of the classic hefeweizen style smells, banana, clove, bubble gum and other sugar sweetness. it smells so delicious honestly

t- taste is true to the nose. more banana, clove and wheat sweetness. must more complex than I had anticipated and I am pleasantly surprised.

m- feel is quite carbonated, but still manages to stay creamy. flavors dont linger too long.

i might not be the most well versed in this style, but I have had enough hefeweizen to know that this guy is delicious. once again new glarus has shown that they are the US king of classic german styles.

12 oz. bottle, dated Oct. 6, 2011, into a tulip glass.

A: Clear amber, w/ light effervescence; fluffy tan head that falls slowly and leaves thinly dispersed lacing.

S: Pink bubblegum, banana, clove, cinnamon; some caramel & wheat.

T: Bubblegum and banana, lemon, a bit sour

M: Light body and light carbonation; watery; neutral finish

O: A refreshing, very light brew. A good quaffer, with some complexity.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint
A very tasty lower abv beer. NG knows how to brew wheat beer and this one is another great example of that.
Look is a golden red with a white head.
Smell spices clove
Taste a lot like Dancing Man but a little more spice and less wheat.
Feel is on the thinner side with a lot of carbonation.
Overall Who ever described this as a Dancing Man light was right on. A lower abv beer packed full of flavor.

Bottle poured into a chalice.

This pours a deep amber color: darker than I expected. It has a moderate amount of off-white head, which dissipates quickly. The smell is light & refreshing: banana, cloves, and sweet malts. It smella like a light belgian. The taste is light, pleasant, & refreshing: more of the banana flavor, with a light mouthfeel.

A departure from my usual, and I found it enjoyable.
