Similar in flavor and aroma to our Wessienheimer Hefeweizen, but brewed with only first wort runnings for twice the strength and body and with twice the hops to keep everything in balance

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Normal, IL). Pours a murky golden yellow hue, some deeper darkness to it, lighter straw edges with a moderate sized bright white head that dies to a thick ring, laces ok overall. Aromas are flaked wheat, bread dough with lemon rind, lemony hops, touches of banana, and light yeastiness. A cool mellow sweetness beneath, smells like a fairly fresh Hefe. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, still quite light on the palate with a touch of bitterness growing into the fold. Bigger lemon rind, bread dough, some estery fruits but Iím really getting lemon rind, bread dough, and maybe a touch of suntan lotion or detergent? Just a faint off presence. Finish is almost a bit tart, with bread dough and lemons. Really, for being Imperial, it hides itís alcohol well, drying out into the finish with lingering lemons. Actually, for a Neo-style that generally is a train wreck, this isnít all that bad. But itís not really my thing either. Strange beer, but itís still palatable and I can see some people rather enjoying it.

Pour was a cloudy orange/tan. Nose was full of cloves and other spice with little esters. Quite a strong amount of hoppiness in the mouth with a metallic taste. I wasnít sure what to expect with this beer, and was quite confused by it.
