Picked up a couple 6 packs of this earlier this fall. Finally getting around to reviewing one of the last ones left in the fridge.

A-This baby is very heady (large bubbles and yet frothy at the same time). Brilliantly clear with a rich copper color with plenty of tiny bubbles keeping that head dominating the surface.

S-Smells like a hefe-heavy on the banana fruity esters. Grainy wheat aroma.

T-A moderate amount of those banana-y esters. As well as lightly toasted wheat. What makes this beer unique is the spicy prickly heat sensation which has to be the cinnamon noted on the bottle. I'd prefer more of a clove phenol sensation instead.

M-Medium bodied for a weizen. Plenty of carbonation. Not creamy.

O-A solid brew although not as prefered as some other unfiltered versions. I think I'd rather drink the unfiltered versions that have a little more creaminess and stronger clove notes.

12 oz bottle.

IT pours an interesting color for a kristalweizen, it is not a traditional one because I haven't seen any Kristalweizen that has looked like this. It is nice and clear though.

Smells like a kristal weizen, thought the banana is perhaps a bit overly intense.

The flavor is very kristalweizen-y. It has a slight bit of lemon to go with the banana and clove.

Not super duper true to style, but for the style it isn't bad.

Pours a clearcopper body with a fluffy tan head. It smells full of spices like cloves and cinnamon. The taste follows the aroma. A little sweet and bready. An easy drinking beer and one I could have a few of on a nice summer day in Florida. Thanks to JoePeesie for the sample

The beer pours a deep copper-golden color with big head of off-white head that clings to the glass. Darker then expected, but intriguing none the less. Malty sweetness comes out strong but settles as other aromas including wheat, spice, banana, clove, and a touch of cinnamon join the party. The pallet experiences many of the typical hefeweizen flavors of banana, wheat, clove, and lemon zest while new flavors of cinnamon and biscuity malt dance underneath. Spot on mouthfeel for the style; medium bodied and highly carbonated. Another New Glarus brew, another rave review - not just a coincidence.
