Imperial Hefeweizen (Pyramid)

Imperial Hefeweizen
(Pyramid Breweries)

Ratebeer 3.22 66th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

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.

Aftertaste +1

Overall it was very dry and crisp, with only a hint of bitter orange and yeast.

Alcohol Content +1 7.5%

Value +1
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.

Overall 7/10

Delicious. Just take your standard hefeweizen and turn the flavour dial a few notches.
