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%

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 Tap: Cloudy, nearly opaque golden color with a soapy white head that reduces to a lasting collar. Aroma contains light white pepper spice, orange peel, citrus zest, mild wheat, some bubblegum, yeasty esters, faint dirt, & a touch of phenol. Taste hides the ABV well. Mild banana flavor with heavier orange & citrus peel in the end. Estery & yeasty, full of spices from front to back. White pepper, maybe coriander? Touch of saltiness in the finish. Like halfway between a Belgian pale & a Belgian strong.

SG111 (1365) - New York, USA - NOV 5, 2016
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.

ClarkVV (6067) - 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.
