Notes/Commercial Description:
Weiss Principal is the international love child of a German Hefe-Weisse and an American Double IPA. This unfiltered wheat beer employs a traditional German Weiss yeast, providing engaging banana and clove flavors. A stern dry-hopping of a pungent American hops provides pronounced citrus, pine & fruit notes.

The colour is orange-yellow, the liquid clear (there is some yeast in the bottle). The finger thick off-white head sinks slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell got phenolic spices and fruity-bitter hop notes. Orange juice and a grand bitterness.

The taste is bitter and very citric (lemon-lime soda). Thick fat hop flavours and spice hefeweizen-yeast. The aftertaste is very bitter with notes of fruit candy.

The carbonation is strong and fresh. The liquid sticky and sweet.

Not a bad beer at all, but I rather enjoy a DIPA and a hefeweizen on their own.

Bottled in 2011. Drank in June 2013.

Poured a nice golden color with a one finger foamy white head. Leaves a nice solid lacing down the glass. After being in the fridge for two years, much of the hop profile is gone though there is a strong bitterness left in the finish. Some cloves and bananas up front. It has a strong bready base with a spicy middle. Strong carbonation. I bet this would be really nice with the full hop profile when it was fresh. I'm digging a nice bitter wheat beer on a hot day.
