Pours a clear deep amber with lots of foamy off-white head. Nice lacing.

Aroma is slightly sweet--fruity esters, banana, pear, and some green grapes. Reminds me of banana runts a bit.

Upfront taste is slightly bitter, floral, fruity esters, pear, and grape skins. Taste follows through to the finish but with some additional sweetness. Lingering fruity esters.

Light to medium body with medium/high carbonation. Crisp finish.

Light and refreshing with a good aroma and flavor. Really easy to drink--a perfect beer for summer.

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.

The aroma of this brew is appetizing with notes of clove and banana bread. Some fresh fruity notes are deposited on the palate as the lively copper-hued brew moves through the mouth. The flavors are nice and fresh with orchard fruit and spice. It's earthy and refreshing at the same time. Another nice beer from the folks at New Glarus.

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.

A-Pours clear amber with a distinct reddish/copper tone and a lot of creamy off-white head.
S-Strong aroma of cloves with some cinnamon and bananas and a slight bready scent.
T-Lots of clove flavor and cinnamon. Some banana bread flavor as well with s hint of noble hops.
M-Slightly dry with a lot of carbonation.
Overall, for the style this is an outstanding beer. Despite the appearance the flavor is that of a very traditional hefeweizen. I thought the filering would change the flavor but this still has the flavor of a traditional German hefeweizen. A very good beer for the style.

A - clear copper with a nice large amount of fluffy white head, tons of lacing

T - initial bitterness/sour fruits which only lasts about a second before it's taken over by sweet malt. lightly hopped.

M - a very pleasant on the palate beer, nice and crisp with a zesty feeling left behind

O - a really nice surprise of a beer.. never really had anything like it before so i'm very partial to it. great flavors, great looking/smelling. no complaints in any department.

12 oz. bottle.

Fills the glass with a crystal clear, medium copper to burnt sienna body and a towering, thick, creamy, light beige head. Great retention and lacing. Beautiful! Very weizen-y nose, with notes of banana, wheat bread, clove, and bubblegum.

Toasted grains with a hint of nuttiness up front. Banana and bread dough flavors follow, framed by hints of clove, bubblegum, and peppery hops. Yeasty, doughy finish, with lingering banana. Medium-bodied, with a slightly creamy feel. Another great wheat beer from New Glarus.
