750 ml bottle picked up at Hop City Atlanta many months ago. I paid around $17.50 for the bottle. Served up in a tulip.

A: The initial pour is a bright orange colored body. Held to the light, more yellows push through and make a more sunburst kind of color. The body was pretty clear on the first pour, but those that followed were gradually more and more murky. The beer had almost two fingers of bright white head, but it fades slowly to nothing. No lace to speak of.

S: Mostly just weizenbock notes in the nose. Plenty of banana, clove and bubblegum. Hidden in the background is just a touch white grape note from the Nelson Sauvin, but it is minimal. I hoped for more but still very pleasant. Spot on imperial-like hefeweizen kind of weizenbock.

T: The taste starts with banana, bubblegum and just a touch of clove. Citrus comes forward with just a touch of orange and lemon. The hops kick things up a bit with a nice and vinous quality. The grapes are a little tart. Floral notes round off the beer just a touch of bitterness. Delightful.

M: On the heavier side of medium bodied with a lighter carbonation. The beer mostly keeps with the mild, sweetness but there is touch of sour and bitter bouncing around on the palate. Just a touch of heat from the ABV. Aftertaste is all vinous, floral hops.

OA: Quite tasty. Definitely comes across as an imperial hefeweizen kind of brew. The Nelson Sauvin adds a nice punch to the beer. I have had the beer both fresh and with this bit of age on it, and it had its high points at each point. Fresh it was hoppier but the ABV was a bit overwhelming at times. Now, the beer has mellowed but the hops aren't quite as present as I'd like. Good stuff overall and I'm glad to have tried, I just don't know if it was worth the steep price tag.

Price: $17.50 Served In: Tulip
