4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden coloured body with about a zillion bubbles rising from the bottom and a five centimetre tall creamy tan head - looks amazing if not a touch on the clear side. Aroma of yeast, bread, cloves, coriander seed, wheat (tons of it), lemons and some light hints of spices - very nice aroma. Medium to Full-bodied; Very yeastie flavour with a lot of wheat tastes, some subdued bread flavours and a whole lot of banana tastes, coupled with a nice honey sweetness and a blast of lemon and even curacao. Aftertaste is very nice - relatively full-bodied with a rich sweetness, but the wheat and yeastiness comes on hard at the end. Overall, a very nice beer - definitely one to sample if you like the style and you want a big drinking, but still summer and refreshing beer. A great representation with the style and I even sampled it in a German Pinkus glass to give Portland some credit in making a good German-styled beer. My one grudge is the label - please donít call this íimperialí - itís a very slightly ílargerí German Hef. Period. Do NOT take a page from Stoneís playbook and think you are godís gift to humans for creating this beer. Itís nice, but there are plenty of others that fill this void. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 07-December-2013 for US$4.98 sampled at home in Washington on 10-April-2014, two days before leaving back for Germany (among other locales).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Big wheatiness, lots of clove, some banana and bubble gum.   Seems also a bit citrusy sweet, spicy, and a little tart.   Take a wheat ale and add in some spiced ale characteristics, and this is what you will get.   More German Hefe flavors than most.   Interesting example, and very welcomed.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber, bottled on 10/11/13. Mostly clear paler yellow, fine white foam fades. Mild banana clove, lemon citrus aroma. Fruity peachy taste initially, tart lemon citrus takes over and dominates, thin wit malt and spices. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. ABV is unnoticeable, finish is sour lemon and flat. This is an Impy?!? Not sure what was trying to be accomplished here. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma is all sorts of fruit: apple, banana, apricot and sweet corn.. and a little soap.
The taste is mild sweetness from banana and candy corn.
The texture has a nice fizz to it.
Enjoyable and interesting.

Bottle... Poured cloudy, pale/yellowish with an easy forming white head. Phenolic, banana, yeast-like nose. Grassy, bright, full carbonation but not too heavy. Cloves and mild esters with a wheated, sweet grain character.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub. Aroma is bubblegum, mostly, with a touch of banana. Muddy pale straw color. Flavors are all mildly fruity and sweet. Too much so. Very thin body, a bit of carb tingle. Not a lot happening here.
