3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Acadia Cafe. Pours a hazy, orange-gold body with generous cream head. Aroma of banana, citrus, and clove. Sweet flavor of banana along with orange and spice and a hint of hop bitterness near the finish. Not very hoppy for an imperial, but very enjoyable on a hot day.

Tap at Stubbies. Wow, explodes with banana aroma. More banana in flavor, along with a tinge of the hop bitterness, followed by a orangish quality. Not quite Dancing Man, but really good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright cloudy golden colour with an enormouse white head. Aroma hits you instantly of lemon, banannas and possibly some cloves. Taste is pleasent, citrusy, spicey and fruity all around. Nice overall, im comparign it to the NG Imperial Weizen, and it doesnt stand up to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crushed at the brewery with Jakebra and Rybra. Some banananas. Pretty intense weizen, but not as easy to drink as better ones. Compare to New Glarus, absolutely no contest. I might think this was great had I not tried NG Imperial Weizen first.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy golden color with a moderate white head. Heavy phenol aromas, with bananas, light cloves and some apricots. Heavy sweet wheat flavor with a background of bananas, cloves, nutmeg, apricots and lightly toasted malt. Thicker feel. Finish continues with a bit of spice and toasted cereal. Finish is lightly bitter with a touch of toasted marshmallows. Not an overpowering imperial weiss, but a very nice slightly heavier hopped hefe.
