Appearance: The body is completely hazy with an golden-amber hue. The head erupts from the body to form a tall and dense white head that maintains its shape for a long time.
Aroma: The aroma is fruity with a grapefruit presence that has a sweet edge to it, straw and lemon come to mind after with a clean floral presence and a sweet banana backing. The aroma leans a tad sweet and is far more complex than I am giving it credit for. Good strength as well. Edit: Perhaps some pineapple here.
Taste: The intro is an odd mix of mildly bitter grapefruit and sweet banana. The two flavors clash, slightly, through into the mid-taste where straw and lemon come to mind. The finish become a bit floral, a tad chalky, and a bit clovey. The finish lingers of chalk, grapefruit and floral dryness. The finish is semi-dry.
Palate: Full-bodied, creamy and mildly carbonated.
Overall: This is an odd assortment of flavors, but I enjoy it. I have drank almost the whole bottle while writing this review, it is immensely drinkable especially at 9.25% abv. This is a great beer, well done.
Pours medium cloudy, pale yellow. Not much head. Very strong hops aroma. Texture is rich, round. There’s a lot of burn from the alcohol, quite warming going down. Not sweet, not bitter. Lots of citrus flavor. sarauckelman (540) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2014 Dull orange/amber color; minimal creamy head. Lively carbonation. Aroma of citrus and hops. Alcoholic taste with lots of fruity body. A bit sharp on the aftertaste. bytemesis (8357) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle with thanks to RobertDale! Pours cloudy orange amber with a huge puffy off-white head that lasts forever and leaves a lot of clumpy lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, pine, clove, citrus. Flavor is dry and strong, almost vinous with wheat, lemon, lemon zest, a bit of pine sol, just a tiny bit of clove. Lingering zesty bitterness, and almost gets a little sweeter on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich and heavily carbonated, with some ABV burn action going on, but not too bad. Definitely scores some points for originality! devman171 (1221) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2013

Spicy clove smell with a hint of cherry. Lots of aroma. Poured cloudy with a lot of head. Very flavorful beer. I don?t like clove in my beers, but oddly I do here. This beer is vert tart, but I think the clove and hints of cinnamon spice balance it out nicely. I’m very impressed by this beer. Wow! juicyhops (48) - Grayslake, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Spice and alcohol on the nose and some doughines. Cloudy yellow with a pillowy white head. A lot of lace. Tastes like a big weizen. Clove, banana and other spices with a bready, yeasty flavor and some alcohol. Medium to heavy body. A great beer. RobertDale (6470) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 5, 2013

Cloudy gold beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. Smooth malt, not particularly wheaty. Smooth orange and a touch of lemon. Malt cream with a touch of peppery spice. A pleasant mellow brandy tone. Finishes dry. Hangs together well, very drinkable.
Great example of an Impy Weisen. Clove and a hint of pineapple maybe a bit of corriander. Very good brew!
