A-I like the look of this. Thick, opaque orange. A thicker, doughy, off-white head. Rather particular with it's lacing.

S-I know this beer is a little older but it's fairly hoppy still. I wasn't even expecting this to smell very hoppy. Bubblegum Hefe yeast. Coriander and some clove. Fruity because of hops and yeast.

T-The hops and yeast combine to give me a very nice apricot flavor. Bubblegum, clove, some light banana as well. Lots of wheat. Citrus, a bit like clementines and there are some neat pineapple flavors as well. Has a sort of whipped cream flavor that accentuates the fruit. Finishes hoppy with a wheat and coriander lining. A big, juicy Hefeweizen.

M-Creamy, full and soft carbonation. Moderate bitterness. Alcohol is hidden.

O-Imperial Hefeweizen? Sounds cool. I liked it a bunch because they hopped it up and made it really juicy but it still stayed true to many Hefe aspects. This is one of the more unique beers I have tried recently. I liked it a bunch.

16 oz can was poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a puffy two finger head. Finally head reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow with no vision of anything.

Smell: Citrus, grassy, vanilla, apple, banana, clove, spice, and wheat.

Taste: Same as above with some bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Refreshing, chewy, tart, medium to full bodied, a little bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: More like a hoppy hefeweizen and Weizenbock, but still aneed enjoyable brew.

16 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams 'Perfect Pint' glass.

A - Pours a hazy, dark gold with a thick, fluffy head on top. Really nice lacing on the glass with the head clinging on strongly.

S - Smells like a hefeweizen to me. I'm getting the yeast up front that contains the typical banana and clove common in hefeweizens. I'm also getting some light orange/tangerine mixed in as well. The wheat adds a nice overall sweetness. Very nice smelling beer...it has me looking forward to the taste!

T - Taste follows closely to the smell. I'm getting some nice apple/orange/tangerine tartness up front that fades into a light, peppery bitterness. The wheat adds a soft, underlying sweetness throughout. There is a slight bitterness/drying effect from the hops but overall it's far from overpowering...perhaps more than a typical hefeweizen but this is far from a hop-bomb. There's a slight warming effect from the alcohol but otherwise it's hidden well. I'm not noticing the 'spicy' character that I get from other hefeweizens but overall it's an enjoyable beer.

M - Moderately carbonated with a smooth, creamy texture. Not as light on the mouthfeel as other hefeweizens but, considering this is an 'Imperial Hefeweizen', it still goes down pretty easily.

O - Very interesting beer. I've never heard of or seen an 'Imperial Hefeweizen' so this is my first experience with this 'type' of beer. Overall I really enjoyed it. Stronger (in flavor and alcohol content) than your typical hefeweizen but still very drinkable. Is it a world-class hefeweizen? No, but I do think it's a fantastic beer in it's own right. It would be worthwhile for anyone to pick this up a try it at least once.
