Imperial Hefeweizen (Pyramid)
Ratebeer 3.22 66th percentile
Beer Advocate B
This brew is just what the name says: Imperial (strong) Hefe (yeast) weizen (wheat beer). Your nose is greeted with the boldest tingle of yeast, wheat, grass, banana, cloves and apricots. The first taste is a little bitter, spicy and effervescent with a medium mouthfeel. Flavours range from peaches, lemon and bananas. The odd ending for this hefe was the light citrus hops.
Overall it was very dry and crisp, with only a hint of bitter orange and yeast.
Alcohol Content +1 7.5%
It was a little better than your average hefe.
Ingame Enhancement +1
More Left4Dead2 demo action tonight. It is still a linear FPS, but it looks really pretty.
Delicious. Just take your standard hefeweizen and turn the flavour dial a few notches.
