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.

22 oz bottle from the local Shaw’s grocery store. Pours a hazy, muddy, orange color with a bunch of floaties. Huge frothy white head makes it necessary to pour in stages. Head calms down to leave gobs of white lace. Aroma is all over the map with banana/clove/spice and a huge dose of citrus hops. The taste favors the hefe side of this unique hybrid. Cloves, allspice & banana dominate the taste at first with secondary citrus hops flavor. Sometimes a bit sour. Moderate bodied with a small amount of carbonation. Finishes somewhat dry.

Uklar orange farge med tynt hvitt skum. Lukter humle, banan og krydder. Noe oljete i munnfølese. Ganske skarp humlebitter i ettersmak.

ClubGonzo (3509) - 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.

Slipstream (1932) - USA - NOV 2, 2013
The sophomoric monniker is a little unexpected. Dark gold pour. Fresh meadow aroma with a splash of citrus punch. The taste is a bit eccentric, like an imperial pilsener, or something that isn’t usually cranked up to this degree. It is called an imperial hefe-weisse (not weizen). A sweet, yeasty bread flavor. Good brew.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Dofter av mango, ananas och säd. Hög honungsladdad söt smak som matchas av en kraftig amerikansk humlebeska. Mjuk munkänsla. Medellång eftersmak.
