Laughing Fox by New Glarus Brewing Company
Kristal Weizen
4.50 % ABV

In playful pursuit of butterflies a Red Fox danced across the brewery hill. His joy so pure it bubbled through our hearts and into this beer. Laughing Fox is a sparkling Kristal Weizen brewed in the Bavarian tradition with 50% Wisconsin wheat in our open top fermenters. Tickle your nose notes of spicy clove and cinnamon abound. Dan’s inspired Weizen interpretation reflects the deep bittersweet color of our Fox’s red coat.

Expect this beer to pour a lively effervescent glass thick with creamy foam and bursting with luscious fruity notes on your pallet. This is easy drinking beer perfect for a friendly Wisconsin evening. Relax, this is God’s Country, here we have the strength to reach for the stars and change the world.

The little lady picked this up in Bumfuct Wisconsin. I haven’t heard of this little guy so I’m excited to try it! New Glarus is by far my favorite brewery. Drank from my Surlyfest pint glass.

Appearance- Pours a fairly dark reddish orange with a decently small bright white head. The beer maintains a nice head the entire time along with zero lacing.
Smell- Definitely sort of a hybrid Hef like nose with a decent amount of banana and clove right from the get go. The beer smells quite a bit sweeter than a normal Hef as the crystal adds a very different sort of smell with that yeast. Maybe a touch of toast but for the most part it’s just doughy and wheaty.
Taste- Nothing like the smell. The beer is actually sort of dry and not all that flavorful. Some bread crust toastiness to start followed by a light (I stress light) dose of spice. Just a hint of clove and a hint of banana. There’s a twang of something lighty sour and a touch of bubblegum in the finish.
Mouthfeel- Sort of thin but nothing terrible with a light zesty carbonation.
Drinkability- Not bad but the smell is much better than the taste. I feel like it’s sort of boring. Almost like it’s washed out – one flavor needs to shine a bit more than the other but neither does. Glad I tried but not my favorite.
