3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wheat IPA from Mikkeller and De Proef, and what a name. The aroma is mainly brett yeast...you know, like moldy orange peel, only this time, moldy banana because of the wheat. It is very hoppy AND very sweet. One would be forgiven for thinkinh its a stronger beer than it is. Heavier whea-based body, drags a bit, and generally overwhelms the five senses, although not in a hop moster way. Sampled at Jake Melnicks, Chicago.

Tap at Le Šenk, Bratislava. Golden color with medium white head. Aroma of malt, wheat, fruit, honey. Solid malty base, with fruity notes, wheat followed by nice citrus hoppy kick. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
