Do not waste time attempting to box this brew into some esoteric guide to styles. This is Dans bold creation. His passion for unfiltered Weiss collides with Cascade Hops inventing our Imperial Hefe-Weizen. Dry hopping boldly rules over Wisconsin red wheat and our special strain of Bavarian yeast. At almost 20 O.P. this is the super mac daddy of Weiss beers. Decoction mashing was followed by excessive dry hopping to create a fierce onslaught of clove, cinnamon and citrus all in this living beer. Dont bother waiting to enjoy - the time is now.

Pours a hazy golden with 4 finger head that lingers, but no lacing. Yeast and funk hit the nose up front. Hint of bubble gum and banana, but very subtle. Pine and grapfruit hops. Toasted malt. I can appreciate a little clove. Starts out thinking it wants to be sweet, but then turns moderately bitter. Long bitter finish. Full bodied and moderately carbonated. This is very good

Bottle from a generous friend. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a massive creamy and fluffy white to off-white head. The head just wont quit! Beautiful fruit medley of banana, pear, bright citrus, spicy earthy funky yeast, floral notes of hibiscus and jasmine, and even what smells like some dank hops. This is beautiful, really incredible nose. The flavor is big florals and zesty hops up front followed by sweet pears and orange citrus, then finishing with a funky banana yeasty ness. There is significant zest to this in front of what seems to be a nice hefe and the combination is both unique and deliciously refreshing. Medium body with medium high carbonation and loads of complex flavors. New Glarus does it again. I could drink this all day and there is no sign of the 9%+ ABV anywhere. This one could get dangerous.

01/07/14 trade from Jamil. Home on a snow day. Sour grapefruit scent with some malt. Beautiful cloudy copper pour with a big head. Medium feel. Sour hop citrus flavor to a tinge of funk quality and ending on a malt note. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden orange color with a sticky one finger head. Good soapy lacing with this. Massive amount of fruit. Yeah the usual clove and banana but add in stone fruit pits and pineapple. Really impressive nose with this. Sharp tropical fruit bite in the taste. Off the bat hoppy. Backing of clove and banana with stone fruits. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Slightly sweet and sticky. Has the body of an IPA but the feel of a wheat. Lovely beer

Watch out for the nigh-unstoppable head. Look is a swampy dull-orange with lots of bubbles. Taste is sweet, fizzy, fruity and floral. Love this stuff.

Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head. The nose mostly sweet with notes of banana and clove. The flavor is fairly boozy with some spice and residual sweetness.

Bottle - gift from friend. Sour wheat malt, spice, and alcohol aroma. Hazy honey gold with a large off-white head. Banana, clove, slightly sour wheat, and alcohol flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. I suspect this bottle was past its prime, but it was still way too boozy for my personal taste.

Bottle (12 oz). Extra from Mark, thanks! Hazy golden/amber with a huge fully lasting frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is of spices (mostly cloves and cinnamon), banana, alcohol, bubblegum and herbal notes. Taste is moderately sweet with cloves, cinnamon, alcohol, wheat, banana and herbal notes. Alcohol is not hidden. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Spicy/dry mouthfeel. I think this is too much. Quite complex, but too heavy, not easily drinkable and with too much alcohol presence.
