3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Sacramento venue. Pours hazy dark gold with a cramy wite head. Aromas of banana and spice. Thick body. Flavor is mostly wheat, a touch of citrus, and a hint of spice. Banana evaporated? Kind of a citrus mild sour finish. Wheat is strong. If this was barley based I’d say bready.

On tap as a taster @ Pyramid. Aroma was bland of malt and wheat. Flavor included citrus and malt flavours. I am rating this from notes I took on paper.

Sample at Sacramento location. Pyramid calls this an Imperial Hefeweizen. Color is a light orange with a cloudy appearance. Aroma is light citrus notes. Flavor is a typical hefeweizen but with nice hop flavoring. Overall a very good and unique hefeweizen.
