Notes / Commercial Description:
Do not waste time attempting to box this brew into some esoteric guide to styles. This is Dan's bold creation. His passion for unfiltered Weiss collides with Cascade Hops inventing our Imperial Hefe-Weizen. Dry hopping boldly rules over Wisconsin red wheat and our special strain of Bavarian yeast. At almost 20 O.P. this is the super mac daddy of Weiss beers. Decoction mashing was followed by excessive dry hopping to create a fierce onslaught of clove, cinnamon and citrus all in this living beer. Don't bother waiting to enjoy - the time is now.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of sweet grain with hints of banana and berries. Tastes of roasted grain with slight berries and molasses taste. Beer is medium bodied and carbonated nicely, complex yet drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass and shared with Kristy K at the condo. Hazy orange with a thin off-white head but excellent lacing. Aroma is yeast, wheat, clove, green apple, bubblegum, and citrus. Taste is classic hefeweizen with clove, banana, and bread sweetness plus some citric hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, boozy and phenolic on the finish.

2011, 12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter.

Nice, bubbly head which stuck around on the edges.

Great dark amber color. Fair amount of yeast sediment.

Strong alcohol flavor, but still enjoyable.

Overall a very good beer.

Still have one left in the cellar, but probably won't let it sit much longer after having had this one.
