Bottle shared at the Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London, many thanks to Mike! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a good and sturdy white foam head. Lots going on in the nose, herbs and spices, coriander, doughy wheat, yeast. Medium to big sweet flavor with heavy wheat and yeast, faint lemon, white sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly warming, with lots of sugary dough, yeast, white bread. It’s tasty stuff, if a bit sweet.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 2012. Pours lightly cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Good soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big grape, apple, pear, pepper, clove, banana, bubblegum, cilantro, herbal, light cayenne, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity, balance, and strength. Taste of apple, grape, pear, cilantro, clove, banana, pepper, herbal, earth, grass, bubblegum, wheat, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of light fruit, banana, pepper, clove, herbal, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic flavor balance and complexity; with nice complimenting flavors from the herbs and spices. Nothing is overbearing. No cloying flavors at all after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with almost no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic imperial witbier! Fantastic complexity and balance; and very smooth to sip on. This was very impressive.

Perfect cider and wheat beer mix. iChat taste cilantro or cayenne but it is great for a 9% concoction. Highly recommended!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Not very exciting. Just sort of a fruity Belgian ale with some spices. Not all that different from the Pearl Jam beer with different fruits and spices. Hid alcohol incredibly well. They cayenne started to come out later and added a little character. Eventually it did get interesting, but overall a disappointment. Not distinct enough. Had it warmer, had it colder and nothing made it taste better. It was actually a little cloying by the end. It hid the alcohol so well I was surprised when it snuck up on me.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium yellow with nice carbonation and a huge, meringue-like, white head that mostly but slowly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had light to moderate hay and pale malt; moderate to heavy doughy and spicy yeast; apple; vegetable; spices; herbs; and slight cayenne. The initial flavor was light light to moderately sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and slightly acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, lightly acidic, ever so slightly bitter, slightly sour and spicy. There was mostly apple, cayenne spiciness from time to time, herbs, spices, tons of yeast, spicy and doughy yeast, and light bread. The light to medium body was ever so slightly syrupy and then fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a spicy and dry finish.
