look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Nice amber/dark orange color. Very clear with a 3 finger white head.

S- Wheat, Clove, Banana, Sweet smell. Smells very similar to dancing man just a little cleaner.

T- Very similar to smell, lots of clove. Basically a lighter, cleaner dancing man. Really nice Kristalweizen to introduce me to the style.

M- Light and clean all the way through with some great carbonation.

O- Another solid offering from New Glarus. I'm still of the opinion that they do not make a bad beer. If you want all the flavors of a great hefeweizen with a lighter body, seek this out.

fine representation of a hefe style beer. aroma and taste remind me of banana bread with cinnamon streusel topping. great malt profile, and taste is off the charts in the fresh grain and malt category. i cant see how they could improve on this one very much. i would definitely buy it again.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Aroma is heavy on banana, clove, some vanilla Similar to their Dancing Man Wheat.
Appearance is outstanding. Pour amber orange, and a frothy tan foam so thick was similar to a root beer float.
Taste has a medium sweetness and lightly sour.
Palate is light in body, slick and fizzy on the tongue.
Fun, different than average fall/winter beer.

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

A - Pour this one slowly folks! Blooms into a gorgeous 2-3 finger head. Color is toasted red amber. Great lacing.

S - Banana and malt.

T - Banana and bread with a light tang. Lingering grape skin and phenols on the finish.

M - Light and crisp with medium carbonation.

O - Definitely an afternoon/evening beer, and great for a fall picnic or campfire. My first Kristalweizen, so I wasn't expecting the slight "cleaning solution" flavor of the phenols, but somehow it manages to be pleasant.
