Poured down the center of a Left Hand balloon glass from a 12oz bottle. I know it should be a weizen glass but I don't have one on hand at the moment.

Appearance: A slightly hazy golden body with a huge three finger highly-carbonated head. The head slowly recedes and leaves a halo of foam. A moderate amount of lacing.

Smell: An aroma of creamed sweetcorn dominates with hints of wheat, banana, bubblegum, citrus, and spice.

Taste: A taste that matches the flavor; creamed sweetcorn and wheat give way to a burst of mouthwatering banana, orange, and citrus. Plenty of spice and pepper on the finish. Delicious.

Mouth: Medium body with quite a fair amount of carbonation. A slight prickliness from the carbonation compliments the pepper and spice finish.

The aroma, the variety of flavors, the mouthfeel... I love this beer. New Glarus hit a homerun with this one.

Damn, I think this qualifies as an imperial hefe. At least it does in my book. And to clarify: It's an amplified hefeweizen that stays dry without the heavier body and fruitier flavors of a weizenbock. There's a big spicy clove aroma with hints of earthy, rustic bread and orange peel. The flavor gets fruitier, balancing a milder peppery spice level with touches of banana and berry with a malty edge of toast. The beer continues with little hits of vanilla and milky caramel. Man, what a beer. This is likely the best German wheat I've had and on par with a great Belgian tripel.
