Corked bottle with no best before date. Champagne styled brew...

Appearance is a hazy golden, with amber hues and a thick foggy wheat bier look. Enticing indeed! Good head, two fingers of thick, creamy white. Lacing is generous and sticks about the glass the whole way down.

Smells of cracked wheat, butter, peppery noted, molases and honey, some fennel and metallic.

Taste... this is an imperial wheat ale indeed! Malty upfront with an alcoholic kick, subdued by the peppery notes in the nose. A subdued but still noticeable noble hop tanging in the top of the mouth lingering spicy and floral finish, this is a balanced yet "animated" bier with tons of character!

Mouthfeel is ripe and full. Poured with agitated sediment, this is a silky and smooth brew. This is paired well with some medium cheddar and a nice wheat biscuit.

Overall: Damnit! Belgium does not have the corner on good, strong wheat beers! I say belgium as this is a wheat beer with the backbone of a belgian tripel... Maybe this is my newbyness coming through, but this is a unique brew. I will be picking up a couple more bottles for long term aging just to see what we can get out of this lovely, french canadian American Pale Wheat Ale... like a sexy one night stand, will hit again (^_^!)
