Draft @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off-white head. Has a sweetish malty slightly yeasty caramel aroma with some hoppy hints. Sweetish malty yeasty flavor with spicy hints. Has a sweetish malty yeasty caramel finish with some weak hints of banana.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours reddish copper with a nice beige head and a light fruity aroma. There is a robust carbonated caramel malt flavor with fruit and a dry bitter finish. Not at all like a standard hefe.

Perfect amber colour, big hop driven aroma which is quite complex with pineapple and rich malt. There is an unusual ester profile which I can only attribute to the combination of big American hops and hefe yeast. It’s a very interesting beer, I would be interested in trying the rest in the series.

11.2 oz. bottle, relatively fresh. The pour yields a dark and hazy, rusty reddish-brown body. A thick, foamy, cream colored head holds strong, ramping up at the edges and leading into dense columns and ribbons of hard lacing. The nose is very hoppy, showing sharp citrus and dusty, peppery floral notes the clash with sweeter banana. Clove is prominent and spicy, just like in a Hefe, though the onset of dry, bretty yeast seems a mismatch. Malts are bready, toasty, and caramelized, and somewhere in there I get hints of grilled pineapple. Flavors largely follow suit, giving a wide range of conflicting elements that just don’t come into focus for me. Is it a bretty Belgian ale? Is it an IPA? Is it a spicy, gummy imperial Hefeweizen? I don’t know what to call it, but I know the sweet bread, toast, spicy clove-pepper, rustic brett, and citrusy, fruity hops just don’t work together. I really think it’s the bubblegum-banana Hefe yeast that fouls things up. The palate is flabby and nearly lifeless, as light carbonation and dry brett intensify on the spicy, bitter finish. Not my thing. Frankenstein in a bottle.

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Spicy clove and fudy fruit on the nose. A perfect showcase of the yeast for me. No hop is really present. Smooth, fat and delicious.

Pours reddish copper with a beige head. The aroma has some banana esters, phenols, touch of clove, cola, toastiness, peach and spicy hops. Medium / rich body with some spritzy carbonation on the finish. The flavor starts with a hefty malt presence that’s toasty with caramel and a minor presence of banana and clove that’s in most hefes. I don’t detect any wheat in the beer, but I don’t know what ingredients are in the base. The finish is quite hoppy with lots of spiciness and light pine. Interesting beer.

In this yeast series, yeast doesn’t have much of an impact on flavor. All the beers are basically double IPA’s. I was hoping with this one that it would have that cloudy hefe aspect. It is a super excellent double though. Bitter, perfume, citrus, smooth, quality as always. Now I am adding a real hefe to it to get get what I was hoping for. Addition complete.............. Oh man! Now this is what I was hoping for! A hoppy hefe! You really should try this yourself. Mixing beers. Incredible.
