L- medium brown with a nice thick head.
S- lots of banana, fruit and spice.
T- this is different than most heffes I've had. Lots of grape flavor with banana and spice with a boozey finish. Lots of grape though which stands out among heffes.
F- nice and strong and heavy. Imperial heffe should be a more popular style.
O- yeah I'll get this again.

Nice cloudy orange-yellow with spectacular head and traces of lacing here and there. Aroma is full of bananas and bread. Taste is strong with banana, hints of fresh baked pastry spice. Light bitterness toward the end. Balance is pretty good. 7.7 ABV is definitely noticeable.
