Big thanks to BeerFMAndy for getting a nice box of New Glarus out to me. Served in a New Glarus tasting glass.

Pours a medium golden-copper color. Not sure how a Kristalweizen ends up this way, but it's far, far too dark. Short white head. The nose carries some light yeasty notes plus a bit of grain. Not too much going on. The flavor is is similar, with a bit too much bready malt coming through. Body is medium and a bit heavy.

A- amber color more of a dunkelweise color

S- little banana and a hint of cloves

T- Something was a little of tasted a little oxidized w/ a banana flavor on the back end

M- medium body

O- meh, I like New Glarus, but not a fan of this beer, bought a 6 pack hopefully, I can do some trading in my homebrew club for it.

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer is dark golden colored with a lasting white head. Too dark for the style. The aroma is similar to a dunkel weizen, with wheat and some dark fruit presence. A bit sweet and malty. I would prefer a lighter color and body, with less malt presence. Not what I look for in a beer of this style. Overall, this was just ok.
