Our Imperial White Ale is a cloudy straw color, and has a zesty citrus nose and a medium sweet aroma. It is refreshingly crisp with a bit of a wheat flavor. With medium hop bitterness, this is a delight-ful brew for any season. Formerly 9.5%

From notes. On draft at an “unofficial” company outing to the Clinton Township Taproom on August 08. The pour is a cloudier golden yellow with a thick white head that froths down slowly, leaving a lot of soapy lace behind on the glass. The aroma is really interesting. Lots of malts, banana, a heavy wheat, and light citrus. There is a grassiness and a strong wheat that comes through with a touch of clove and a bit of maybe coriander? The flavor is just as interesting. I don’t like it. The clove and banana are huge and the wheat just takes a back seat. The breadiness kind of finishes with a little lemongrass twist thing that I can’t read. The mouth feel is thicker and softly carbonated, which lets the coriander and clove just cling to my mouth. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet spices with a malty undertone. I don’t know how to feel about this one. 6 3 6 3 12

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, hints of yeast into some wheat, coriander, clove, lemon and white fruits. Taste was a mix of bread, grass, orange into some lemon, white fruit, touch of wheat, slight yeast, finishing fairly sweet.

Tap at the source, Warren. Pours pale yellow, white head. Aroma is lots of wheat, clove, coriander, lemon, small bit of Belgian esters. Really nice and refreshing. Flavor is lemon, wheat, coriander, some clove. But that coriander and lemon predominate. Really nice. Like a heavy witbier with some extra Belgian strong ale qualities. I like it.

Fat på CBC 2016. Smak och doft av vete, pomerans, örter, skumbanan, godis och säd. Fin sötma och kropp, viss syrlighet. Gott!

Fat på CBC-16. Vetebock möter trippel så om stilen fanns skulle det här vara vetetrippel. Vetesyrlig, mycket säd smaker, lite estrig med främst banan. Trevlig.

ClarkVV (6825) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Draught at the newer location, 5/5/16.
Cloudy goldenrod with some brass tints and a medium-sized white head that slowly fades to cover.
Lots of orange rind, white pepper and a big fruity peach character. Honey, sourdough bread and a moderate amount of clean alcohol, heat things up somewhat. Seems quite attenuated from the nose and the alcohol and bready/grainy notes from the malt are a bit overexposed, it seems. The ester/phenol profile, otherwise, is pretty passable, with no cotton candy or heavy banana.
The texture is slick with a bit of syrup/alcohol and moderate carbonation that is mostly tight. Some bitter notes, grainy/bready malt at times (light) ending with a touch of alcohol heat/dryness. A bit heavy-handed with the dry phenols, bready malts and alcohol.
