Big lacy white head over a pale yellow hazy pour. Big bretty nose. Flavor is initially bretty with a touch of cherry pie. Big bitterness follows with a bit of fruit. Very dry finish. Nice beer.

Dr_Fellini (367) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Draft. Pours a clear light golden yellow color with an off white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit hops, sulfur, light wheat character. Flavor is very different than anything I’ve had before. Light sulfur, funky sweetness. Light to medium in body, lingering funk. Very tasty.

Bottle from Plumpjack. Wheat is the new hops? I prefer the old hops - hops - but wheat is a pretty decent hop I guess. Beautiful urine-like appearance, really a dead ringer for urine down to the bubbles and all. Mmm, pee. The aroma is decidedly non-urine like, which is good because pee doesn’t smell or taste as good as it looks. Wheaty, grassy, floral, and herbal. The flavor is nice, with a smooth wheat base, Bretty funk, and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied and crisp as a mother. Good brewski.

NeuroPliny (142) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured from a 330 cc bottle. Hazy golden with generous white head and big lacing. Aroma is hops and citrus. Flavour is rich in hops, grapefruit, lemon, grass, and Brett yeast. A bretted wheat IPA turns out to be a nice combination here.

Bottle to tulip Grass, orange, grapefruit, wheat, a little resin and Brett. Hazy dark yellow with a thin frothy white head with plenty of lacing. Taste is Brett, and wheat...no surprise...some pepper and a nice bitterness.

From a 330ml bottle on 20/6/2014. Pours a clear straw with a medium fine white head. Has a distinct pleasant aroma of citrus and hops (lots of grapefruit). In the mouth, there’s grassy and bready malt, brett, and heaps of lemon and grapefruit. Features a very firm, dry, quite tart bitterness. Medium bodied with relatively lively carbonation. Doesn’t present much like a wheat beer to me - more a very hoppy saison I think. Regardless, it’s very good, which is generally par for the course for anything labelled Mikkeller.
