COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weiss Principal is the international love child of a German Hefe-Weisse and an American Double IPA. This unfiltered wheat beer employs a traditional German Weiss yeast, providing engaging banana and clove flavors. A stern dry-hopping of a pungent American hops provides pronounced citrus, pine & fruit notes.

22oz bottle. hazy gold with a large, fluffy, white head. peach, coconut milk, honey, pineapple and just a hint of banana in the nose. flavors of pineapple, peach, apricot, piney hops. kind of a jumbled mess. not really digging this much, except for the name.

laakus (31) - Nossebro, - DEC 26, 2014
golden clear color with a typhical big foam that you would expect from a weisse. Nose is a strange perfumish fruity piney citrusy tone. Mouth is banana, bubble gum, with some bitter tones hit ting in the end. Not balanced or great at all. This bottle passed "best before date" some 7 months ago so that might not give any justice for this beer. Maybe better off when drunk fresh.

Gr0ve (2157) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
660 ml bottle. Hazy golden with a small to medium white head. Honey aroma with pungent grassy and piney hops. Crisp caramel flavours. Rich and malty but a light body. Unusual mix of wheat, cloves, banana and hops. Works quite well.

trapped (908) - New York City, TURKEY - AUG 16, 2014
Drought. Cloudy orange-yellow, off-white creamy head, clover and spices aroma, hoppy taste with spicy flavor, low carbonation, long finish. Quite spicy but interesting.

kidobutai (424) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2014
A very complex beer. Very little head and no lacing, but a good fruity aroma. The taste is really a combination of barley and grains with heavy, almost syrupy tropical fruits.

adnielsen (9478) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle via trade. Golden orange appearance with a light tan head. Some juicy hops in the nose but also a lot of bread and a bit of cardboard. Tangerine, mango fruity notes in the flavor. A little sappy / goopy resiny. Sharp bitterness and sweetness. Boozy. Gross.

arsol (629) - NORWAY - FEB 1, 2014
Uklar orange farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter humle, banan og krydder. Noe oljete i munnfølese. Ganske skarp humlebitter i ettersmak.

rarbring (1556) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2014

ClubGonzo (4238) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is banana, clove, grassy pine syrup tones, hints of booze and peaches. Taste is grassy piney syrup tones, faint banana, alcohol, hints of spruce. Medium to full body, medium to high carbonation. Nice enough, but I’m not feeling the meeting of styles here.
