Review – New Glarus Crack’d Wheat
From New Glarus Brewing – This is Dan’s bold creation. You hold the international marriage of a sophisticated Bavarian Hefeweiss and an assertive American Pale Ale. Amarillo dry hopping drives Wisconsin Red Wheat. Traditional open top fermentation cultivates our proprietary Bavarian Weiss yeast in our own Wheat Beer Cellars. Absolutely 100% natural bottle conditioned. This is a living beer.
New Glarus Brewing – Crack’d Wheat – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 5.9% abv. From Robert in Wisconsin!
Appearance: Pours a vibrant bright orange-ish yellow. A tight knit foamy head sits atop.
Aroma: Big banana smell, along with cloves and bread crust. Also some bubble gum.
Taste: Clove, spicy hop, bitter, spicy and sweet wheat flavors.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and plenty carbonated.
Overall: A one of a kind wheat beer. I was expecting a much sweeter brew than what I got. Mighty layered, with bitterness, sweetness, and spiciness, and fruitiness.
