UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Re-Rate 22oz bottle on 8/31/07: Have to say I liked this more after trying it in the bottle. Not getting as much sweetness, but getting some nice bitter hops in the finish. Still not exactly refreshing, but much better than my first impressions from the brewpub. Sweetness and alcohol definitely come out stronger as it warms. Original rating 8/23/07 6.4.5.3.11 - 2.9:On tap at Seattle brewpub. Very nice looking hazy dark golden with small head. Definitely much darker than their normal hefe. The taste is pretty sweet for a hefe, and just seems way off style. Definitely a bigger beer, but bigger doesn’t always equal better. This isn’t refreshing, as a good hefe should be in my opinion. Leave the impy’s to the stouts and IPAs.

On tap at Portland’s MacTarnahans Tap Room--Poured a hazy yellow-orange with a bountiful thick white head. Tangy, wheaty, grain aroma that persisted to the palate. Puckering full-bodied taste. Finished great. Great beer!

Apricot gold; lingering head. Subtle straw wood aroma. Citrus, wheat, straw, bread, wood...flavorful and full bodied. Manager says 7.3 abv. Tasty like a double blanche in ways. Rich and flavorful. On tap at Alehouse in Berkeley.

Surprised this wasn’t on here. The guy at the brewery said they were thinking about bottling this. That said, I hope they don’t. Has all the wheaty characters of a hefe, but unlike most of their other hefes, doesn’t do it any justice. The alcohol overpowers and basically makes this undrinkable.
