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.
Serving type: can

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.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a nonic pint.
A: Pours a nice hazy orange with two fingers of foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly.
S: Lots of citrus fruit, orange, lemon, and then the wheat backbone comes through. Also get some breadiness and yeast, exactly what I'd expect.
T: Crisp orange peel comes to the palate, with more citrus, some wheaty tones and a touch of coriander.
M: Medium bodied, crisp, and refreshing. Drinks easy and finishes smooth.
O: A real tasty hefeweizen here from Baxter. Aside from the ABV, I'm not quite sure what makes it "imperial" since it drinks like a standard here. Regardless, I dig it, and especially the 16 oz cans!
