Yet another great extra from Corbet - thanks again! Poured cold and hazy into a Portsmouth tulip. It's a dark straw yellow-orange with a good amount of haze and a beautiful thick head.

The smell is of bubblegum and wheat, the taste is a great balance of sweet and just the right hint of citrus bitter - orange and lemon. The mouthfeel is spot-on as clean with just a bit of residual tartness. There are plenty of wheat ales out there, but this is the standard to hit. Love it!

Yet another beer my man GDBEERMAN hooked up in our trade! Thanks Rob!

Poured from brown 12oz bottle to NBB globe as I have no weizen glasses.

A - The bee pours a hazy gold color with a huge 2.5 bubbly white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

S - Hefeweizen! Lots of nice aroma: the nice hefeweizen yeast character in your nose immediately: clove, banana, fruit. Light malt character in the sweetness.

T - Very fruity and sweet immediately. Nice hints of banana, apples, citrus meld well with the toasted malt sweetness. A hint of honey. The yeast flavor isn't as pronounced as I expected which is nice. Mild bitterness. Finishes fruity and crisp. Very good.

M - Good carbonation and medium bodied.

O - While Hefeweizens aren't my favorite this is an excellent beer! Top Hefeweizen I've had so it's a nice treat. Not too overpowering on the flavors and very well balanced. Extremely refreshing! Thanks Rob!

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Thanks to Clint for this sixer in our trade at JO's. This is a style is usually avoid, but this proved to be a really amazing beer.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Produced a tall dense white meringue of head, with excellent staying power. The beer appears appropriately unfiltered, though not overly cloudy either.

The aroma is everything you'd expect out of a good hefeweizen: clove and ripe banana, moderate sweetness tempered by light doughy wheat malt.

The flavor is surprisingly clean and smooth. Normally the estery quality of wheat beers turns me off quickly, but Dancing Man just keeps cruising, and I keep drinking.

Coating mouthfeel, full bodied for the style. This brew's a mouthful in the best ways possible.

Overall this is just one more example of how solid a brewery New Glarus is.

First had: bottle thrown as part of a trade/buy from Brian/Beerisheaven. Thanks!

I poured this one into my Zero Gravity tumbler. A pale, golden yellow liquid, clear but for a little bit of yeast sediment. Poured with an initial huge mass of foamy white head that almost filled the glass, but soon calmed down to a thin layer. Champagne-like carbonation. Aroma of grains and spicy wheat, light banana esters. Taste is very nice, with notes of grains, typical wheat profile, but with the banana noted in the nose coming to prominence mid-palate, leaving no doubt that this is a hefeweizen. Breadiness and light spice also noticed. Medium in body, a bit sticky at first, but overall smooth, crisp and flavorful. Goes great with food, and is generally an extremely drinkable brew.

Grabbed this in early summer 2011 during a Great Lakes region beer tour.

Poured into a 0.5L Staropramen glass. This is a pale, light gold color. Foam formation was massive, off-white and slightly rocky. Retention is good.

Freshly peeled banana features prominently in the nose, as one might expect from this style. Classic bubble gum noted underneath. Hops hard to detect but this is ok.

Flavor includes another nod to the banana but an equally present, balanced clove is here, too. Bready malt. Bitterness is rather low. Finishing dry.

Medium in body with a moderate/moderate high level of carbonation.

Though this beer has been in my fridge for roughly half a year, I'm very impressed with the subtle and balanced flavor profile it offers. The banana/clove/bready malt balance is well done leading to well rounded profile that makes for an enjoyable session.
