Maybe it was just the light, but a beautiful gold body that faded to copper just underneath a good sized, flat topped head. Melons, lemon and banana backed up by yeasty wheat in the nose. Flavors of citrus, more banana and spice with a touch of bitterness along with smooth sweet malt and wheat. You’d never guess that it was 8.2% unless it warms up a little. Never cloying and a light body for such a flavorful beer. Time to go buy some more. Fantastic.

nose is an attack of tropical fruits and yeast with character beyond that of a simple weizen. with almost belgian qualities, the yeast brings a storm of cloudiness to the brew’s hue. people talk about fruit notes in beer, and weizens specifically are spoken of having banana notes. well this isnt a note, its a pineapple the size of a football crushed and smothering you! wow! still, this is tempered with an interesting spicyness from the hops that doesnt present itself with typical bittering ideals. in time the source of the spiciness reveals itself to be alcohol as well as hops, which begins its slow but pleasant burn. this is one of the most well hopped weizens ive ever had, maybe #1 in that regard. this is definately the best weizen ive ever sampled, the traditional style while comforting cant touch something of this caliber. at minimum, this is the first hands down ’10’ on aroma ive ever sampled.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2010 (bottle) hazy golden-orange colour with a cloud of hop particles in suspension and a firm white head, nice lacing. aroma is hop spices, tropical fruits and a hint of alcohol. flavour has a strong tropical fruitiness, most noticeably pineapple and passion fruit, lovely peppery and citric hop spices, fresh malts and light alcohol notes. dry, with a pleasant medium-bitter finish and light citric sourness, full bodied, smooth carbonation.

Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Juicy aroma with pineapple and apricot hops. Dry hop dominated flavour with the apricot dominating.

I was digging this. Cloudy dirty blonde pour with fluffy head, some lacing. Wonderful aroma of floral hops. This beer was delectably fruity sweet and the hallertau floral-like bitter hops perfectly complemented it. Bananas, citrus and flowers with a pleasant alcohol bite. Heck yeah! I need to get the other version now.

500 mL bottle. Poured a hazy gold color with floating particles. Poured into a dimpled mug. Aroma was wheat and earthy/piney hops. Flavor was citrus, slight banana and spice. I absolutely loved this beer. Solid wheat beer.

Cloudy, even murky, with an orange-gold color, thick white head. Rich wheat malt aroma, ahh, but with so much hop! Sweet, yeasty, banana, cloves, citrus. Never smelled anything quite like it before. Rich flavor, lots of wheat malt, sweet, with tons of bananas, alcohol, but infused with hops. Spices, lots of citrus and grapefruit. Amazingly complex. Tastes lighter than 8.2%. A very original beer that is almost but not quite perfect, very well done and tasty as hell. The hops are matched very well with the weizen. There are all kinds of fruits, and the hops really prick it up and make it less cloying than your usual weizen bock. Excellent stuff.

Pours a hazy, light gold in color. Decent head on the pour. Smell is wheat, but I’m getting quite a bit of clove in this as well. You get a bit of the lemony banana flavor in the taste. A little zing from the citrusy hops. Decent mouthfeel and a pretty easy drinker for being 8.2%.

Bottle from Immy. Poured a murky gold, I like the yeast, its good for you, so I always throw it in. Easy drinking for an 8% brew, some banana,Hops, Citrus,and alcohol, Abit subdued for the alc% thats a plus for sure, a nice drink on a hot California night, refreshing, nice.

Bottle. Hazy and buff colored with a huge soap bubble head. Sharp and spicy citrus and bubblegum aroma. Tart, quenching, spicy and hoppy with citrus and some hints of vanilla and toasted bread. Well carbonated and full in body but still refreshing. Amazingly light in character for such a high strength beer. It has a lingering banana/citrus hop flavor that melds well with the mellow dry bitterness. This is an inspired and well executed ale.
