4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful, hazed yellow sun with a hint of caramel interwoven in the unfiltered body. A stiff orange tinted head keeps rising over the top with a life of its own. Aroma could be the best I’ve ever had. Righteous cloves with a equally prominent American c-hop flash. Lemon chiffon and vanilla buttercream treat with buttery baguettes a citric banana medley to the aromatic symphony’s delight. The aroma is just about as bright and sweet as it gets. Flavor pipes in with an amplified affirmation of the preceding aromatic sequences. Cackled white pepper rides with sugar cloves for a bright, snappy soliloquy. Honeyed marigolds give a bright, herbal essence to the citric brightness from the c-note profile. The body builds to a heavy presence on the palate, presenting a hefty challenge for the tongue to heave it up after the bitterness and sweetness set into it. Tingly sensations of bright vanilla coated cloves intertwine with crushed white pepper and cackled cloves for a lively, bitter clean finish.

Smell was hoppy with mild banana and pineapple notes. Taste was mild hops, alcohol, and the usual weizen notes. Tastes like someone spilled an IPA into a hefeweizen.

Unbelievably good. Not generally wiezen fan but this one takes it to new level. Huge cloves loved that characteristic, no real banana which is perfect. Some lemon some yeast and dough. Big ABV but not noticeable. I. Flavor that is, did get me pretty buzzed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle from brewery. Aroma of clovey spice, banana, lemon citrus, some herbal and floral tinges, lemongrass, slight pepper, some wheat grain and faint honey. Cloudy, dark golden in color with an exceedingly foamy, sticky, lasting head, off-white, with lacing to match. Flavor profile is strongly yeasty, plenty of spice, esters, pepper, dough, etc. with some lemon citrus, very faint sweetness, breadiness, as well as some medicinal alcohol present late. Mouthfeel is highly effervescent, warming and active, gently acidic and features a nicely full body. Interesting and tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass and shared with Kristy K at the condo. Hazy orange with a thin off-white head but excellent lacing. Aroma is yeast, wheat, clove, green apple, bubblegum, and citrus. Taste is classic hefeweizen with clove, banana, and bread sweetness plus some citric hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, boozy and phenolic on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"6/09-the hops weren’t what i was hoping for in this imperial dry hopped weizen, but i see the last review for this bad boy was some time ago, so maybe they were there and have since died a long slow death? still a good beer, but based on the hoppy Crack’d Wheat, I wanted more out of this. It was more yeasty and sweet with the hops barely making an appearance in the back. Some sediment, great full mouthfeel, fruity, cloves, big flavor, but didn’t detect the nearly dbl digit alcohol. not bad, but i was maybe more excited than i should have been."

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with huge pillowy white head that leaves tons of lacing. Nose is clove, coriander and a bit of funk. Lots of carbonation in the mouthfeel. Bock sweetness comes through in the taste. Leaves my lips and tongue numb!

These guys never cease to amaze me. In a style that I was expecting much out of, they made a great beer. Poured a hazy darker yellow to orange with a white head. Aroma was of funky apples, wheat, lemons, and toast. Flavor was light funky oakyness, apples and lemons and some berries too. Very unique and tasty.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a pretty cloudy gold with a huge white head that lasts and lasts. Nose is of bubblegum, cloves, coriander, citrus and apricots. Very creamy and smooth on the palate with a rich and creamy viscosity. Flavor is full of many different tastes: spices including cinnamon, coriander, cloves, with fruits including citrus, apricots and bananas, some sweet malt, some yeastiness followed by a suggestion of hops, all warmed by its 9.25% ABV. This beer may be enjoyed as a banquet unto itself and may be enjoyed with a variety of foods but most especially light cheeses or white meats.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly hazy dark yellow with 3 fingers of thick white head that just lasts and lasts. Aroma of clove, dank wheat, citrus. Taste is light sweet and follows aroma. Good beer. Different, and not what I was expecting, but very good.
