In this beer blog, we are going to get into the fourth of seven beers from New Glarus Brewing Company. The beer is called Laughing Fox. I love the graphics from the beer bottle, which you can see in the photo above. If you read my earlier blog on their Fat Squirrel Ale, you are up to speed on this brewery. If you have not, please, go back and read the first part of that beer blog post. Let us get into this beer.
It has a dark clear copper color without a head on the beer. It has a heavy banana to clove to the beer. It has sweet malty banana taste without an aftertaste. It is really drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.newglarusbrewing.com) and beer bottle:
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. Best Wishes, Daniel & Deborah Carey

In closing, I was a little stun when drinking this beer. My friend gave me the wrong bottle. I was looking to try their bock and here is a wheat. It happens and I glad she pick this up by mistake. I am not a fan of any of their weizen, white, or wheat beers. This beer has a lot going on in it. There is really depth in this beer. There are some nice cinnamon to banana notes in it. I recommend this beer and I might have to think about putting it in my regular line up of beers if it was available to myself in Chicago. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
