750 mL bottle into a tulip.Bottled April 17, 2014.

A: Hazy deep amber body with generous dense off white head that retains well, reducing to a small cap. Lot's of lacing.

S: Complex. Apricot, grape, orange peel and lemon; spicy notes of coriander, clove, pepper. It keeps going: wheat, honey, caramel, biscuity hints, light earthiness... Let me say, again, complex.

T: Flavor follows the nose, complex and well balanced, with no part of the profile overpowering the others. Fruits and spices immediately in the front, with wheat malt, caramel coming in right after. The flavors are ringed and intertwined with oak and herbal characters with a notable earthy yeast. The light malts and yeast work well together, the finish is not terribly cloying for a beer this strong.

M: Light carbonation with a medium to full body; mouthfeel is smooth, though a bit on the heavy side. Slight booziness in the finish, but not overpowering; notably warm at the finish.

O: As always from DFH, an interesting and bold offering that avoids the mainstream. This imperial witbier is big in lots of ways, and does not disappoint. Hugely complex but well- balanced; smooth sipper for an ABV like this. Highly recommended.
