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.

Bottle shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan!

The beer is hazy, appearing golden yellow hued with a towering white head. Excellent retention and lacing. An all around stellar appearance. The aroma is sweet, with prominent banana scents. Very nice flavor, albeit sweeter than is customary for the style, though typical of New Glarus. Lots of banana and sweet malt. Not as refreshing or quaffable as a lighter, traditional hefeweizen, but certainly tasty and delicious. Light to medium bodied, with alcohol content well disguised. Wow, this is 7.2%? Overall, quite enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this beer. Another gem from New Glarus.
