Goblet.

A: Pours a light golden, perfect clarity, with three fingers of fizzy white head. Very good retention.

S: Sizeable dose of pepper and spice on the front of the nose, malt, and just a touch of citrus.

T: Lemony and orange and the requisite spicyness. It's got a little corn sweetness that somehow reminds me of Spotted Cow (?).

M: Nice crispness to balance kind of a creamy mouthfeel, medium-light body and medium carbonation.

O: Superb wheat beer. Very quaffable, one of my least favorite wine descriptors, and refreshing for unusually hot days like these.

Pours a golden amber color with full plume of dense, bone white bubbles, good retention. Scent and taste are made up of similar traits to other Hefes, most true to style - tangy wheat, banana, clove and spice, white bread, hints of bubblegum and a splash of citrus. What makes this beer special is the way they all blend and balance, not one component is more aggressive than the other. I've had Hefe's that are too bready, too banana-y and too lemony - this one is just right on all fronts. Suprisingly dense body, still smooth and lightly bubbly. Overall, quite the drinkable Hefe with nice layered flavor and scent.

Poured 12 oz bottle into DFH globe

Pours a hazy golden with a large white cap of foam. Smells of lemon, clove, banana, and yeast emanate from the glass; very appealing. Taste is a perfect blend of banana, clove, pepper, and yeast with a touch of lemon and a dry finish. Watch out for the hidden 7.2% ABV. One of the best hefe's I have tasted. Seek this one out.

A: Cloudy light orange color with 3-4 finger frothy head.

S: Clove, banana, peppery, lemon.

T: Banana, wheat, clove with lots of spice (maybe too spicy for a Hefe?) Lemon, Orange, pepper.

M: Medium thickness, good amount of carbonation.

O: Excellent. I actually prefer this one over Live Oak. I have never had a bad beer from New Glarus yet. Another excellent brew! World class.

Cloudy, straw-colored body. Plenty of thick, white head leaves sticky lace all over my glass. Strong banana esters in the nose amidst the malt & wheat.

Much more bubblegum in this flavor profile than any other hef I've tasted. Sweet, wheaty, bananas, and lightly watery on the finish. Love that big, creamy body.

This was a long-time want of mine, and it didn't disappoint. Quite possibly the best bottled hef I've had; Live Oak's offering is still tops in my book. Cheers!
