Poured a hazy golden straw in color w/ a 1 finger white head that produces a nice sticky lacing. Aromas of fresh bread, orange peel, and cinnamon. The taste was obviously a blast of wheat up front, which transitions into a citrus fruit wave, and finishes w/ cinnamon. Medium bodied and very lush. Finishes pretty clean. This very refreshing brew is extremely sessionable w/ well hidden ABV.

Overall, awesome wheat beer! I cannot believe this is the first time I have had the pleasure of sampling this brew, will not be the last now that I have the taste.

A nice pale golden smoggy unfiltered glow with a few slow streams of bubbles within. Tall, foamy capping of stark white froth laps up quickly to a thick setting top. Resides down softly to a thick skim and the lacing is mostly drippy with a few thick spots and globs sticking closer the edge of the liquid.

Solidly balanced nose with this one as the 'Dancing Man' performs well on the stage of the nose with slathered in banana muted paleness with a sweet wheat bready backing and a nice touch of hefe yeast, floral-essence, and tamer clove.

The taste has some good dance moves as well. Well established meatyness of malts; tangy, hearty, darkly deepened wheaty sweet bread, banana mushyness, very brief lemon candy stint, and a perfect snap tone in the mid range as it sinks in well with a heavy but balanced finish of hefe yeasty spices. Great tone and length.

Soft, smooth, chewy, malty, yet snappy with wheat that's all wrapped up in a solid medium body. There's just a touch of zip in spices to it that sparks extra flavor in each sip. The balancing act is quite excellent between the pale sweet flavors and the snappy tone of tangy wheat and breezy spice additions.

This stuff takes the stage and performs a top notch performance all around.

Poured into a Weizen glass.
I am immediately impressed by the appearance of this beer.After living in Germany for several years it is rare to come across an American version of Weizen that is so murky, perfect light golden/hay color and that rich,creamy head.Great appearance.
Smell takes the standard even higher..everything I want in a great German Weizen. Banana,grain, clove, pepper, orange,lemon, almost a yogurt quality. Yeast, fruit, grains all in perfect balance.
Flavor...perfect.A mix of bananas, pepper, allspice, clove, musty grain, lemon and almost a milk-like creaminess in the mouthfeel. Sip after sip just re-enforces my initial impression.
Mouthfeel is a great balance of creamy fruitiness, grainy quality, and a peppery yeast bite that cuts the creamy sweetness perfectly.I am really impressed with every beer I have tried from this brewery, and Dancing man IMO gives even Weihenstephan a run for its money, and I went to brewing school there.
