Pours a half finger of head on a hazy light straw body.
The aroma is dry grains and a little lemon. Nice.
The taste is "wheat", lemon and a little spicy at the end. Good profile.
The texture is crisp.
Quite enjoyable.

After years of seeing this "on tap" they finally bottled it for 2014. Into a pint glass.
A - Very little head on this just a 1/4 inch that fades out like a cheap cola. Color is a bright hazy yellow.
S - Smells like an imperial Berliner Weisse sour lemon notes, wheat and some banana or clove.
T - Bready and wheat with some lemon twang and a touch of spice. Not too sour which is OK but not too interesting in the taste. Still rather sweet so I enjoyed it.
M - For over 6% this beer has a great body leaning toward medium but smooth.

Overall I think I paid 4.50 for the bomber well worth to try this Weiss (It's really not a hefeweizen) at such a high ABV I could see some sourness or flavor lost. Still I was happy to finally get my hands on it!

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, light caramelized malts, some citrus, some spice and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus, spice and some caramel. Then some breadiness comes in from flavors of wheat and a thin malt character. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer to drink for a while but there are others in the style that I would pick first.
