<i>From a 750mL Bottle.</i> Somewhat hazy, brassy golden pour with a fizzy layer of quickly dissipating white head. Head dissipates instantly in the glass, but creeps slowly up the neck of the bottle. Aromas of juicy fruit and coriander jump out of the glass immediately, followed by some pear and oatmeal. Light bodied, heavily carbonated mouthfeel with a selztery texture. Somewhat odd textural sensation; the carbonation level is extremely brisk - similar to a glass of soda, with large scrubbing bubbles, but there is absolutely no head left on the beer. Flavors of milky wheat up front on the palate, followed by a bright yeasty pepper. Moderate alcohol presence, but it warms soothingly. Moderately heavy coriander levels come out toward the finish and are left lingering in the final smack. I’m not getting as much lavendar as I get in the standard weight Orchard White, and substantially more coriander. I love lavendar but am not enamored with coriander. Fascinating textural experience; I’ve never experienced another beer quite like it.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 On tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden color with a huge white head. Aroma is spicy, wheat, malt. Flavor is spicy, orange, malt and floral. A very balanced enjoyable brew, I’m glad they had a few bottles left.

Sampled at the bruery. Amp’ed up version of the Orcahrd white. Crisp flavor, nice, but I should have had it side by side w/ the regular orchard white

Tap at the brewery. Very interesting beer, dark gold in appearence, nice white head. Very spicy aroma. The flavor was really smooth and flavorful. Wish I would of had a regular White first for reference. Damn fine brew.

Sampled at the Bruery. Nice set up they have there. Gold in color, very similar to the non-imperial version. Aroma of wheat, fruit, yeast and spice. Flavor was probably a little more heavy on the lavender than the original. Besides that, it was not too different than the Orchard White. The alcohol didn’t add too much. However, flavor was smooth and tasty. Enjoyed it.

On Tap at The Bruery. First Rating. Pours a beautiful golden yellow with white head. Aroma of biscuit, spice and citrus. This is a maltier and higher alcohol version of their wonderful Orchard White. Crisp and clean with bread, orange zest and spice coming through. Very smooth. A joy!
