Clear, rosy copper hued with a moderate-sized beige head that fades a bit quick and leaves thin rings of lace.
Clove-dominated nose, with a dusting of cinnamon and vanilla pod. Sweet trickles of wheat back up the spicier notes.
A snap of wheat malt as it hits the tongue. Lightly sweet, with some drier bready (almost crackery) notes. Clove is predominant, but pepper adds some prickly spicy notes as well. Hopping is minor, but congruently peppy to the weizen trait. Ends balanced, with some lingering banana pudding.
Light bodied, slowly effervescent. A Dancing Man Light. A nice quaffer that still rings with the hallmarks of New Glarus' excellent Weizen heritage.

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.
