Backlog rating. Keg at the Kingís Arms tap takeover. It pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of green apples, citrus peel, hay, pine cones, light funk. Taste is medium sweet and medium dry with funk notes, pine needles, grass, lemon custard, wheat and grapefruit peel. Finishes astringent, bitter and dry, lightly yeasty. Very tasty brew, and refreshing

Aroma is lemon citrus with some yeast notes. The wheat creates a creamy feel. True ipa hope bitterness is missing. Hop aftertaste is a mix of grassy notes with a strong tart lemon citrus.

Au nez, on sent une légère amertume accompagnée d'une subtile odeur surette et de grains. En bouche, un bon goût de blé se marie avec une acidité et une douce amertume. La finale est sèche et amère ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well balanced beer considering itís unorthodox styling. Earthy, soil aromas with hints of barnyard funk. Weiss reminiscent and tasty sweet. A different beer altogether, unsurprisingly.. Given mikeller penchant for point-of-difference beers

Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas? Bitter but with bland/nondescript hop notes. Some creaminess from the wheat with floral highlights. Not nearly as good asbthe sister beer. Average body and mouthfeel.

Bottle poured in tulip. This beer confuses me, it is very light, drinkable and doesnít have the hops kick of an ipa. Nose is wheaty, slighty estery (banana) but does not seem to carry heavy aroma hops. Color is golden and the beer sit beautifully in the glas with a thin white head. Taste is a bit everywhere for me and I donít super enjoy it. Iíve had other wheat pale ales (such as stone and wood pacific ale) that i though hit the mark. This one was a bit boring.

domienS (121) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2014
Blond beer with little saturation and a little bit of fine white foam. Smells yeasty fresh and floral. Has a long bitter aftertaste. The palette is full and non alcoholic. Has a lot of flavor for the alcohol %. Very heavy on the palette tough.

"Mikkeller #105! Bought on site without seeing it was an IPA, OR a brett beer. Happy day to me! Very much like an Anchorage Bitter Monk Jr. Same attributes, just a lighter beer. Equal parts hops and funk. Nice, dry flavor, with the wheat being relegated to the background. Opens up really nice and is easy drinking yet tasty and complex."

Vaz på anlægget. Flaske. Syrlig humlet duft. Frisk bitter smag af humle, citrusfrugt, grannåle, malt og korn/hvede. Flot ufilteret korngul/appelsin farve. God på en varm sensommerdag.

Bottle. Hazy light golden pour with a pale head. Nose has some sour mango, funk and grains. Taste has exotic fruits upfront which leads to a funky bitter finish.
