COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

The Trappists monks can say goodbye, except for the fact that this is a limited offering from New Glarus (anything labeled as unplugged is limited from New Glarus). I am most impressed by beers that have a high alcohol content and yet have a good taste - this is one of them - maybe the best. I shall forego the details on smell, initial taste, palette and after-taste on this one, because there is really nothing else that I have had that compares to this one.

Weezel (269) - Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Awesome pour with a nice rocky head. Cloudy orange in color with bright carbonation. Aromas are out of control with pepper, lemon, piney hops, and the classic bubblegum yeast. The taste follows with bright citrus up front followed by some musty hops and an effervescence that carries the flavors away. It’s both what I imagined a imperial weizen to be and at the same time it is completely without boundaries. Very good!

solidfunk (7231) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Nicely done. Some citrus and a hint of smoke. Some light sugary malt and a little booze. Pours hazy orange with decent head and some floaties. Light sweet finish with some malty tang. Nice stuff, and great for style. Touch of banana. Bottle thanks to arminjewell.

BiiruBierBeer (932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
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.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2014
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.

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.

"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."

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!

Beerman6686 (6181) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
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.
