Do not waste time attempting to box this brew into some esoteric guide to styles. This is Dan’s bold creation. His passion for unfiltered Weiss collides with Cascade Hops inventing our Imperial Hefe-Weizen. Dry hopping boldly rules over Wisconsin red wheat and our special strain of Bavarian yeast. At almost 20 O.P. this is the super mac daddy of Weiss beers. Decoction mashing was followed by excessive dry hopping to create a fierce onslaught of clove, cinnamon and citrus all in this living beer. Don’t bother waiting to enjoy - the time is now.

Bottled August 15, 2013.
Appearance: The body is completely hazy with an golden-amber hue. The head erupts from the body to form a tall and dense white head that maintains its shape for a long time.
Aroma: The aroma is fruity with a grapefruit presence that has a sweet edge to it, straw and lemon come to mind after with a clean floral presence and a sweet banana backing. The aroma leans a tad sweet and is far more complex than I am giving it credit for. Good strength as well. Edit: Perhaps some pineapple here.
Taste: The intro is an odd mix of mildly bitter grapefruit and sweet banana. The two flavors clash, slightly, through into the mid-taste where straw and lemon come to mind. The finish become a bit floral, a tad chalky, and a bit clovey. The finish lingers of chalk, grapefruit and floral dryness. The finish is semi-dry.
Palate: Full-bodied, creamy and mildly carbonated.
Overall: This is an odd assortment of flavors, but I enjoy it. I have drank almost the whole bottle while writing this review, it is immensely drinkable especially at 9.25% abv. This is a great beer, well done.

Pours medium cloudy, pale yellow. Not much head. Very strong hops aroma. Texture is rich, round. There’s a lot of burn from the alcohol, quite warming going down. Not sweet, not bitter. Lots of citrus flavor.

bytemesis (6970) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle with thanks to RobertDale! Pours cloudy orange amber with a huge puffy off-white head that lasts forever and leaves a lot of clumpy lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, pine, clove, citrus. Flavor is dry and strong, almost vinous with wheat, lemon, lemon zest, a bit of pine sol, just a tiny bit of clove. Lingering zesty bitterness, and almost gets a little sweeter on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich and heavily carbonated, with some ABV burn action going on, but not too bad. Definitely scores some points for originality!

Spicy clove smell with a hint of cherry. Lots of aroma. Poured cloudy with a lot of head. Very flavorful beer. I don?t like clove in my beers, but oddly I do here. This beer is vert tart, but I think the clove and hints of cinnamon spice balance it out nicely. I’m very impressed by this beer. Wow!

Cloudy gold beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. Smooth malt, not particularly wheaty. Smooth orange and a touch of lemon. Malt cream with a touch of peppery spice. A pleasant mellow brandy tone. Finishes dry. Hangs together well, very drinkable.

Great example of an Impy Weisen. Clove and a hint of pineapple maybe a bit of corriander. Very good brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
