3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refrigerated 1 L brown bottle with fliptop poured into weizen glass. Pours cloudy light orange with large deep golden highlights and medium off-white head. Aroma is bready, medium body, medium carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is estery, bready, some clove, some bubblegum, and hints of alcohol. Good weizenbock, but not my favorite and at $15 for a 1L bottle I won’t be seeking this out.

Spicy, sweet, citrusy, herbal, well balanced, and a dash of alcohol. Top weizenbock. Or Imperial Hefe - an interesting beer that can be understood equally by either name, but in any case is one worth seeking out.

The word "imperial " should never preface Hefe Weizen.
This was boozy & non refreshing, with little or none of type typical hefe traits

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Babyfood banana aroma. Crystal clear amber, thick lasting head. Decidedly less fruity on the palate, with wheat bread taking its place. Alcohol evident Grassy hops are surprisingly assertive. Malty and boozy, hoppy for the style, but kind of neat. Paired well with lemon frosted sugar cookies.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky gold, large fluffy white head. Smells like toast and apple butter. Oddly sweet flavor, like raisin bread toast or something like that. Some bubble gum and banana, too. Not bad...
