Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-11-2011

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.

This beer was terrific. Wild, but terrific. The description is apt. Its a german hefe meets an IPA. In the nose, a crazy combination of citrusy hops battle with the clove-type smells of hefe yeast. Its a wild combo. The beer is TOTALLY unfiltered, so the mouthfeel is extremely rich, creamy and satisfying. The hops and are very prominent on the front, then the yeast flavors (banana, etc.) come out strong at the end. Its a roller coaster. My only complaint is the richness of the mouthfeel i think does interfere a bit with the other flavors. But otherwise, a really fun beer. (578 characters)

Dang, this is good beer! Maybe not the Weizenbock style it says here, but its label is spot on: "An Imperial German-Style Hefe-Weisse". At a very good temperature it poured with a grand off-white, thick, foamy, frothy, billowy head that lasts a long time and some lace. Color is a hazy, apricot amber with particulates and a few tiny bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, banana, clove, orange, malt, hop. Flavor is similar to nose with some pine and grapefruit along with carbonic tang. Body is a little soft and yet just right for this hybrid. Finish is like flavor and of average length, ending with a little sweetness at very last. Excellent beer! (644 characters)

22oz bottle served into Hitachino Nest tumbler

A- Pours a hazy brilliant orange, reminiscent of a sunset, off-white pillowy head with decent retention and no lacing

S- Bready, sweet malts, coriander, orange, clove, spice, subdued citrus hops.

T- Spicy and banana-y like a hefe, but piney, resinous, and citrusy like an IPA.

M- Bitter, zesty and juicy. Good carbonation.

O- I hope this is the next break out style. A hefe/american ipa? A welcome change from all of the black and belgian IPAs. Best this brewery has offered yet. (532 characters)

A- Poured into an oversized wine glass, the beer was a very cloudy orange/yellow with a good 1 finger head and really nice lacing.

S- It's a heffe! Banana, clove, yeasty beasties... all the usual suspects.

T- It's an IPA? It’s a heffe? It’s both! Magnificent hops in this brew. The traditional heffe characteristics seem to play second fiddle to the hops and the bitterness, but that's fine by me. Banana, wheat, clove and pungent piney hops.

M- Silky smooth carbonation wraps around the tongue and just beckons you to take another sip. Bitterness cuts through the sweet heffe notes and balances out wonderfully.

I’m a guy who traditionally seeks out more "extreme" beers, and heffes do not often fall under the category. This beer on the other hand has the ABV and bitterness i like in my beers, while still being refreshing on a hot summer day. One word of caution however, if pouring from a bottle, LEAVE THE LAST INCH OF BEER IN THE BOTTLE! i spoke with Jon Cadoux, the head of peak organic, and he told me that in order to get the ABV they were going for, they had to use crazy amount of yeast (no surprise there). Their decision to remain true to heffe style and to stay 100% unfiltered, means you get a great beer, but you should sacrifice the last inch or so to the beer gods… (1,296 characters)

22oz bomber
A) Pours with a big two finger head that takes awhile to settle. Clear body, bronze in color. Active CO2 from bottom to top. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Fruity esters - banana, pear. Subtle wheat aroma.
T) A sweet malty and fruity blast upfront - wheat, Caramel, apple. A noticeable and pleasant hop bite in the finish.
M) Chewy. Medium body. Smooth and creamy. Alcohol effervescence.
O) This is a good beer, although only 8.6%ABV seems a bit more potent. I would definitely drink another one of these. (522 characters)

Pours a huge three fingers worth of ultra creamy off white head. Hazy orange body. Very nice lacing, head retention and rouseability.

Smells hugely of citrus, some floral and fruity hops. A subtle banana and clove smell mixes in nicely.

Tastes very hoppy, citrus, floral and pine. An underlying banana and clove also make it's presence known. Again I think these flavors mix well. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium full bodied, medium carbonation. A firm piney lingering bitterness keeps this in the ipa bitterness range. The hops are very oily and coating.

Overall this is a nice blend of an American ipa and German wheat. I'd pick up another of of these and lay it down.

Had this beer on tap at Saratoga Brewfest back in mid June, now having a 22oz bomber of it.

First, it seems that the beer I had on tap, and the bottled version are a tad different. At Brewfest, on tap it was 10%abv(as stated by the brewer), and the bottle states 8.6%.

Also, the label says "An Imperial German-Style Hefe-Weisse". I was told by the brewer that it is a cross between a German wheat hefe, and an American IPA.

The appearance is very murky, looks unfiltered. It's a cloudy amber with an orange glow in the middle when held to a light. Forms a substantial head with any level of pour aggression. Leaves a lot of film on the glass.

Smells like a heavy Hefe. The German yeast adds a very distinct scent. A bit on the spicy side, cloves and peppery. A bit fruity from the hops as well.

The taste is what sells this beer to me. The flavors meld very well. A banana and wheat flavor upfront, which melts a way to a nice bitter earthy and piney hop bite.

A medium to almost full bodied mouth feel. A bit dry and lingering, but not unpleasant.

I do love this beer, best I've had from Peak. (1,102 characters)

Peak Weiss on tap at The Pony, Hell's Kitchen, NYC.

Appearance: Served in their eight-ounce glass, Weiss is a beautiful Hefe-like brew. Pale-hazy yellow-straw color- looks almost like dirty water at the end of the glass. A bit under two fingers of foamy white head with thick bubbles and great lacing.

Smell: Banana, vanilla powder, light citrus. Enticing! Again, very Hefe. Spice, a tad of hops and flower (honeysuckle)

Taste: Tart/acidic flavor, not unlike lime juice. Dry hoppy finish with a hint of spice. Glue/yeast. Floral and grassy all around.

Mouthfeel: Very well balanced. Full body, flavor and carbonation. Dry spicy/bitter finish. Lemony! Might be off-putting for some.

Overall: Super drinkable and great for the summer, reminds me of Lagunitas Little Sumpin'. Lots of good things going on here! A great mixture of Hefeweizen and IPA, and easily the best Peak Organic beer I have had so far. (912 characters)

In a weizen glass the beer was a hazy apricot color. The head was thick and white, resembling whipped cream. Sheets of lace. Very pretty.
Banana aroma, some spice. Fresh, floral.
Banana taste, some clove. Piney hops, a little grapefruit. Couldn't appreciate any malt.
I thought this little experiment worked rather well, even with the widely divergent tastes. (359 characters)

I picked up a bomber of this yesterday at my local Shaws for $5.49 and enjoyed it out in the 'Zebo last eve.

Popped and poured into an Oberdorfer Weissbier glass... It was a cloudy, hazy, muted honey color. A healthy, cream colored head toopped things off, fine and fluffy, slowly ebbing down from 1" high. Lacing was quite nice as well. Light clove was present, but the predominant aroma was wheat and rindy hops. Fairly smooth for a hefe, with a decent, solid body.

A touch of toasty malt sweetness is evident at the start, with subtle banana joining in. Far and away the leading flavor is rindy, pithy, puckery hops, with the clove and banana very restrained. Dry and crisp at the finish, the rindy character really stands out. Interesting offering. I assumed it was an amped-up hefe, and not something like Schneider-Brooklyner... Near the end I swirled in all the bottle sediment, which really clouded things up. Nothing wrong with a healthy dose of yeasties, though!! Prosit!!

22 oz. bottle

A chunky and muddy, home-brew, certainly UNfiltered look, honey amber color, thick and hazy with a 3" fluffy-foam head and big lace.

A massive aroma of sour and fruity hops, lemmons, sour earth in the yeast, major spices, cloves and allspice with tangy citrus and bannana.

A crispy, dry wheat, earthy bite with bitter sour hops and a bit too much heat. The hop flavor is massive, fruity, mostly tangy bite. Gentle sweetness and dry wheat notes, big hop complexity and rather tastey yeast. Maybe a bit too sour with major heat, otherwise, groovy.

A wild and interesting brew, open your mind with this one! (626 characters)

Hmm, a mix of a Hefe and an American IPA, sounds interesting.

Pours a lightly hazy golden orange color, huge freakin' head that fades at a slow rate, leaves a huge ton of sticky lacing on the glass as it fades, a cap stays on top for a good long while, be careful though.

Smell has a strong citrusy orange aroma, the orange rind is a huge aspect of the nose, not picking up much banana though, definitely clove though.

Taste has a good carbonation level, the aftertaste is an odd bitterness, the kind you would get if you ate the rind of an orange, light citrus presence that might have been a product of the hops but the hops are no longer a large aspect of this beer. (672 characters)

This beer pours a light orange yellow, hazy, with only a thin lacing of head on the surface. Be careful when pouring, as this is an unfiltered wheat style, and sediment can end up in the glass. (this is really harmless and tasteless, but it looks bad)

Smell is intense- alcohol, cloves, bananas, hops. The aroma presents like a wheat beer on steroids. Its absolutely pungent.

Mouthfeel is light and airy, which is a huge surprise given the punch in the face the aroma presents. Its texturally very light, but active, with lots of bubbles.

Taste is as intense as the smell, but even more complex. Initially a wash of pure alcohol drowns the taste buds, and is followed by spice, cloves, then an intense, super bitter, resinous piney hop flavor overtakes everything. Finish is dry, with a super subtle fruit taste.

This is one assertive, intense, bad-ass brew. The intense flavor and smell are impressive. A very unique take on the IPA style. I don't know if the two styles- German Heffe-Weiss and American IPA- compliment or fight each other, but the result is a potent, flavorful brew.

Recommended, but be warned- this is one aggressive, assertive brew. Anything that is 8.6% abv, yet actually taste higher, should be consumed in moderation. (1,246 characters)

Single bottle picked up at Consumer Beverages in Buffalo. Been intrigued by this brewery, in particular this idea of an "imperial" wheat ale.

Poured into a small sampling glass, shared with a friend during a beer tasting/exchange. Looks like a classic hefe: golden, opaque, good frothy head, some visible carbonation.

Nose is yeast, a bit of coriander and citrus, wheat malt. Faint, but pleasant.

Really intriguing brew, which I have to say I actually dug quite a bit. Tastes like a hefe on steroids, with a drawn out alcohol bite and a citrus hop finish. Slightly sour, but with that same light floral and citrus character of a wheat beer. The term "imperial" is warranted here, as this brew packed quite a punch both in its flavor and alcohol content. Creamy, lively carbonation.

Interesting brew, and an ambitious rethinking of the wheat ale style. I have to say that Peak has certainly done the job well, adding enough extra zest to make for an intriguing sipper. (974 characters)

The beer pours a beautiful gold color with a thick towering white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice mix of hefe yeast esters and bitter hop aroma. It's sweet and fruity with some subtle banana/clove character. The taste is decent. It has a good hefe flavor; pale and wheat malts, fruity yeast esters. The hop character adds a good deal of bitterness, which seems to muttle the flavor, but it's still quite tasty. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an interesting beer. It's half hefe, half IPA. I didn't think the two would work together, but it kinda does. (638 characters)

I am fairly excited to try the new brew from Peak Organic Brewing, the Weiss Principal Ale. The local representative dropped this one off yesterday, and it hasn't even arrived for sale yet. He described it as the perfect marriage between a sweet hefe and hoppy IPA. I can barely contain my excitement!

The Weiss Principal comes in a crown-capped 22oz bottle, screw-top oddly enough. It pours out a beautiful topaz color, with a thick and fluffy white foam. The foam lasts a ridiculously long time, and leaves behind a ton of sticky lacing. The brew is very hazy, if not completely opaque, and the resemblance to a great hefe is getting me even more excited!

The nose is dominated by the hops, very bitter, American style hops. I'm quite surprised by how much citrus and grapefruit I'm getting in the aromas. The label describes some banana and clove from the German Weiss yeast, but this smells much more like an IPA to me.

Once I take a sip, I'm sorry to say, I'm very disappointed. This has American IPA written all over it, with more in-your-face hops than I can enjoy. There is definitely a hint of hefe present, but it's very subtle, and over-whelmed by the IPA side of this Jekyll and Hyde brew. I am seriously not into this beer. However, my hop-loving friend absolutely loves the Weiss Principal Ale!

As I near the bottom of the bottle, I give it a good swirl to stir up some of the yeast. I'm expecting the yeast to be a little more appealing to my sweet, hefe loving palate. Well, it unfortunately doesn't make the Weiss Principal any better for me. Sorry! Overall, a pretty cool beer. It's the first hefeweizen I've ever handed to my hop-head friend that he liked. Actually, he loved it, and hasn't stopped raving about it throughout the entire bottle. Although it's not my favorite brew, I can sincerely appreciate the creativity of the Weiss Principle Ale. It really is the "international love child of a Hefe-Weisse and an American IPA" as the label states. (1,975 characters)

Cloudy light orange amber. Large white head with decent retention.

Not your typical aroma for style; there is relatively little in the way of spices, and morehops. Light malt and hops dominate.
Some yeast in the aroma, but rather faint compared to a Belgian.

Lacking the pronounced wheat flavor or [masking] spices I usually find objectionable, I enjoyed this more than the usual weissbier. (392 characters)

22oz screw-top (that's always a good sign) bomber purchased at Shaw's in Derry. Murky yellow-amber body with bits of yeast in addition to the suspended yeast, with nearly two inches of off-white head that has some rather large bubbles in it and which dissipates slowly leaving some lacing. Grassy hops share the aroma with nut, banana, and a hint of alcohol. Banana-nut and a bit of bubblegum hit the palate first, then they're rudely pushed aside by a rather large dose of grassy citrussy hops that round out the finish. Heavy bodied with ample carbonation. Not quite sure what to make of this one. I liked it a lot better once I read the side of the bottle and realized it was supposed to be a cross between an IIPA and a Hef. It's almost like drinking two strong beers at once, which is unique and interesting. I think I'll pass next time though. (849 characters)

Just got home and was looking at my stach of beers and decided to enjoy this 22 that I picked up last week at Oak Hill Beverage in Scarborough. Beer was poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: Holy frothy head. I feel like I was enjoying a large pilsner of hefeweizen like I did when I was in Austria, Slovakia, and Czech Republic. Anyways, somewhat hazy, super frothy head, golden yellow, and some signs of decent carbonation. Very good lacing too

Smell: Banana, clove, some pine and citrus. Somewhat really funky, but interesting. I can't stop smelling the stuff. The yeast and hops have done some odd things to my scent of smell.

Taste: Banana, clove, citrus, and some lingering pine towards the back.

Mouthfeel: Beer is going down nice and smoothly. A small amount of cabonation.

Overall: I tried this ACBF back in June and finally have decided to enjoy it at home. I enjoyed it then and still enjoyed it now. Big debate to get in on draft or bottle. Who cares? I'll take both. (995 characters)

A - Pours with one and a half fingers of white foam on top of a very clear, golden-brown body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Peppery yeast notes of clove and pine hops with a malty backbone of caramel and toffee.

T - Bready malt with lots of spicy clove character up front. More phenolic character appears in the middle and intensifies to the point of becoming medicinal. Surprisingly strong bitterness in the finish with a pith, grapefruit character that lingers in the aftertaste.

M - A thick, syrupy body, moderate carbonation, and a sticky sweet finish.

D - This one starts out very promising with an excellent, bright and peppery aroma of hops and spices. The flavor profile, unfortunately fails miserably in its attempt to live up to the promise of the aroma. The spicy notes have become an overwhelming and medicinal phenolic yeast character that just overwhelms everything else. If that weren't enough, the bitterness is excessive and pithy; to the point that it would seem harsh in a DIPA, let alone a beer like this. I am always a bit skeptical of Imperialized versions of wheat beers and lagers, but I have had so many surprisingly good beers from Peak that I though this one just might be one of the rare exceptions. Sadly, it was not. (1,296 characters)

A: Pours a lightly cloudy golden yellow color with 2 fingers of fluffy head that last for a good while

S: Some Belgian yeast that produces some fruitiness and spiciness, as well as some citrus and pine from the hops

T: Starts off with a bit of the yeast and a light alcohol kick. Spices and fruit come shortly after, along with some citrus and pine. Finishes with lingering bitterness and some clove notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: An interesting concept trying to make a hefe/DIPA blend, but it's not as balanced as it could/should be. Some of the yeasty aspects clash with the higher abv and hoppiness, making it a little rough around the edges. I applaud PO for the attempt, because beers like this are NOT easy to pull off (750 characters)

A - Pours a a nice golden and orange, a little hazy and yellow. Head is about 2 inches and last a while. Slightly off white. Lacing is good too.

S - A bit yeasty/bready. Light hops and citrus.

M - Carbonation is great. Well balanced. Medium body. A good cross between an IPA and a hefe-weisse.

D - Fairly drinkable. Towards the end the yeast was a little overbearing.

Review from 7/9/11, on tap at the Lark: pours cloudy orange in color with a cloudy white head that lasted forever and left great foamy rings of lacing; a very good looking beer.

Smells of orange peel, lemon, coriander, yeast, herbs, light grains, hay, faint pepper, caramel, flowers or floral hops, light brown sugar and a little funk; not sure what this style set out to be, but it smells fresh and earthy with soft notes of all the ingredients.

Tastes of orange peel, lemon, coriander, grapefruit, sour apple, citrus hops, yeast, herbs, grains, hay, faint pepper, caramel, sweet malt, flowers or floral hops, brown sugar, cinnamon, grass, tea leaf, and a little funk that leaves a sharp dry finish. Really nice and complicated due to the spices, this beer was strange and yet still well balanced at the same time.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with light carbonation, a medium body and creamy overall feel that's got a little fizz that allows it to flow down easy.

This is a unique beer, not a session beer, that is tasty and enjoyable for those seeking a different beer or hybrid style. I enjoyed this beer throughout it’s identity crisis, but it lacked something to make me love it. I’ll try it again when possible to see how the next batch tastes. (1,266 characters)
