COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Do not waste time attempting to box this brew into some esoteric guide to styles. This is Danís 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. Donít bother waiting to enjoy - the time is now.

sawbuck (248) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Aroma of bubble gum, spices, some citrus. Hints of pine in the background but very faint. Orange in color, huge white head, Very complex flavor...but it explodes. Smooth sweetness with steady bitterness right behind. The typical sweetness of a hefe is muted nicely, followed by nice warming of high alcohol. Cinnamon, spices, and fruit hit from all directions. Finishes with a sharp bitterness that ends nicely and dry.

12 oz bottle. 2273. (Rileyís) Madison, WI.
Hazy orange golden colour with a huge fluffy off-white head. Amazing aroma of wheat, yeast, pineapple, caramel and banana. Wow! Absolutely delicious! The flavour ainít bad either. This is so good. Extremely tasty. Wheat, yeast, caramel sweetness, malt, sweet fruits, mild sourness and mild bitterness. Very balanced and super tasty. One of the best beer for some time.

Aroma is citrus, bananas, spices and super-sized/strong bubble gum. The flavor is citrus, fruit, light bananas, strong bubble gum, mild hop resin and a bitter and tangy finish. Not really that similar to weizenbocks Iíve had, this really was an imperial hefe, not sure that I will find another, pretty good.

12 oz bottle served in a Kuhnhenn snifter. Picked some up fresh from across the border. A: Pours a dark orange color with a hazy body. Two fingers of thick, pure white head form on the pour with excellent retention. As it slowly goes down the glass it leaves sticky clings of heavy lace. S: Big yeasty notes on the nose. Clove and banana with a nice sweetness to it. The malts are bread and sweet through out and the hops really come out at the end with a nice fruity kick. T: The taste follows the nose. The nice hefe yeast profile of sweet cloves and banana, the sweet wheat with a little bid of white bread and then the nice fruity hop profile on the finish. Slightly bitter as well. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level thatís trending towards the high end. The finish is slightly bitter and drying. O: Very delicious and much better than the previous Unplugged batch. Dan outdid himself with this one. Iíll be picking up more of this. Serving type: bottle 09-20-2013

Pours straw yellow with a huge monster of a white frothy head. Aroma is full of clove, grass, grapefruit, and sweet orange. Sweet but a hoppy slight tang flavor. Finishes crisp and makes for an overall delicious beer

beerbaaron (927) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Fresh. 2013 release. Pours a cloudy, straw yellow/orange. Huge, fluffy, creamy white head, lasting with some drapes of lace. Aroma is complex and bursting with character; hops, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, wheat, banana, clove. Flavor follows. Medium to full body. Creamy. A little oily. Sweet. Fruity. A fair amount of spices. Alcohol content? What alcohol content? Hardly any there. Hop character really makes an impression and complements the hefe qualities nicely. Great balance. Pleasant finish. Smooth, absurdly drinkable, and absolutely delicious.
