Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A - Hazy golden orange hue

S - Banana, bubblegum, lemon, banana, and spices. Other light fruits and malt come through.

T - Damn... one hell of a hefeweizen! The notes of the aroma come through in the taste along with pear and orange peel. A very complex and drinkable beer. You can't detect the 7%+ at all!

M - Light and crisp mouthfeel. Kind of surprising for how big this beer really is. Perfect!

O - I could drink these all day! This holds a candle to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier! New Glarus nails down every style with ease. Impressive!

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. No bottled date.

(A)- Pours a clear golden orange color that produced a beautiful fluffy white head with awesome retention and is clinging to the sides of the glass.

(S)- Evident clove with bananna and lemon biscuits. Has a slight hint of flowery/vanilla bouquet with a dash of honey sweetness. Beautiful creamy banana in this.

(T)- Lush ripe banannas and bubblegum. light clove with a light biscuit-like lemon.

(M)- Plenty of carbonation with a great smooth flavor. Balanced well for the style with a creamy banana front and a lightly dry wheat end.

(D)- A fantastic Hefe beer that fits perfectly with this time of the year. Wonderfully balanced and easy drinking. New Glarus keeps surprising me again and again.
