12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/30/2018. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge lemon, orange peel, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malts, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with big strength. Taste of huge lemon, orange peel, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, floral, grassy bitterness; and pepper/clove yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, peach, pear, apricot, melon, red apple, coriander, peppercorn, clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat, biscuit dough, light honey/toast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malts, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitter/spiciness balance; and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness. Slight lingering spicy alcohol. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 9% after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic imperial white! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spices, bready malts, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV, with the mellowly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Very rich and complex with amazing balance of Belgian yeast, spices, and raw wheat/pils malts; with solid earthy hop presence. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. A highly enjoyable offering, and amazing spot on style example for an imperial style.

An exciting beer. Malty, but in a yeasty, almost Belgian style (not overly saccharine or too cereal in its wheat body). A thick mouthfeel, and a substantial but nuanced wheat palate make this a beer well worth sampling.

Look: Hazy, and dark yellow. The white head is quick to fall. Little lacing is left behind.

Smell: Quite a bit of exquisitely ripe banana, plus pineapple and bubblegum. Despite all the sugar, the smell is somehow crisp rather than cloying, perhaps due to some soft spice notes and a whiff of citrus juice.

Taste: Bananas at the forefront, with a distinct, sugary bubblegum finish. Thankfully, all that sweetness is nicely balanced by a light bitterness and some tangy citrus flavors. As the beer warms, some cloves come through, as well as a pale malt flavor which tastes like oatmeal cookie dough when mixed with the sweet esters. Very interesting, in a good way!

Mouthfeel: The body is medium, but there is an airy lightness to the midpoint of each sip. The medium carbonation makes the bitterness in the finish more apparent. Some alcohol warming fills the stomach after swallowing.

Overall: Innovative and impressive, though not quite balanced enough to make me completely head-over-heels. Still, this is worth more than one try, and is something I'd seek out for sure.
