look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy, cloudy gold color with a four finger frothy velvety white head. Looks amazing. Head very slowly dissipates leaving not much lacing on the glass but some thin white film along the outer ring of the beer.

Smell is full of aromas of wheat, bread, pepper, spice, and clove. Mild undertones of banana and a touch of roasted nuttiness.

Taste is initially wheat and pepper giving way to a slight sweetness with notes of banana, clove, cinnamon, and banana bread. Just enough spice on the finish to provide a nice balance. This tastes like the real mccoy - its not a German style hefeweizen - this is a real hefeweizen.

Feel is full bodied but light and crisp with mild carbonation.

Overall this is one of, it not the best hefeweizen brewed outside of Germany. And while a fresh Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier in Germany might be better - here in the States this is tops for me. Just incredible. If you can get this, don't hesitate to buy a 6-pack

Drinkability: very good.

A - A murky orange with a towering white head. Excellent lacing.

S - Banana and wheat with a slight booze smell.

T - Crisp and refreshing. Solid banana, lemon and wheat taste with a little booze taste in the background.

M - Smooth and creamy. Well carbonated.

D - Goes down quickly but the higher than normal ABV for a hefe keeps one from drinking more than a couple.

Another solid beer from New Glarus. Very refreshing and I will definitely turn to again.
