Thundarr the Bavarian is a strong German style Hefe-Weisse brewed with the classic Weihenstephan yeast strain known for itís "Banana" and "Clove" aromas. Of course itís not BBCOís intention to offend anyone from a futuristic world of savagery, super science, and sorcery not to mention anyone yielding a fabulous sun sword.

Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this is close to a drainpour for me. Little carbonation, no head, golden yellow. Aroma is strongly yeasty and wheaty, not bad. The flavor is overpoweringly sour citrus. Wakes up the sides of my tongue and salivary glands. Would love to find a banana or a clove in here, but the lemon has killed them both. Will probably not drink the rest of the bottle. 650ml in a tulip glass at home.

Aroma was very inticing. Appearance Iíd say a nice yellowish orange.taste was very good. I donít usually enjoy this style of beer but found it very refreshing. Not to light on the palate but not overpowering. Overall Iíd say this was a very good beer. Great beer for the summer months.

jgb9348 (5551) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 10, 2014
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).

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.

Lagerboy (1880) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
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)

Fatehunter (2146) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 4, 2013
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.
