Thanks to Viggo for picking this one up!
Pours a clear, orangey gold, almost like wheat fields under a setting sun. Uhoh, I think Biegaman may be rubbing off on me...
but anyway, a bit of a soft white head that subsides into a crown and a centered veil.
The aroma is composed of soft hops, some citrus, lemon in particular, honey, freshly cut lawn and alcohol.
The lemon extends into the taste, along with notes of white pepper, a subtle sweetness, some citrusy hops and alcohol. The pepper shows itself in the throat! The alcohol really is noticeable, but not overly.
Over all, a pretty decent effort.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but probably over 3 years old. Pours hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of honey, wheat, bread, light caramel, grapefruit, orange, floral, grass, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Some light oxidation is present, but not bad. Taste of honey, wheat, bread, light caramel, floral, orange, grapefruit, grass, pepper, clove, and earthy yeast spiciness. Good amount of earthy pepper spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, wheat, bread, citrus, floral, grass pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Light oxidation present in the taste as well, but not bad. Very nice balance of malt and hop flavors; with good malt/spiciness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this a very good imperial wheat beer, even with the age. Good balance of malt, hop, and spicy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
