Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium.
Not just another wit bier. The style taken to another level. Strong and hoppy. The world’s first IPW?
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale and amber), unmalted wheat, flaked oats, hops (goldings, amarillo, saaz and cascade), spices (orange peel and coriander seeds) and yeast.

RealPoser (40) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Pours a hazy gold with rich creamy white head. Nose is outstanding, with pungent notes of citrus, wet hay and a hint of bubblegum. Doughy with sugar pops and a surprising amount of hop bitterness. Really unique... though it is slightly warm (abv) with a hint of astringency. A slight barnyard funk/tartness lingers on finish... and I like that. Overall... pretty good brew.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a big white head. Very fragrant, with notes of perfumey citrus and spices. sweet entry to the palate, lots of spicy fruit with a wheaty backbone, then a dry finish that is a little funky and surprisingly bitter. An unusual wit for sure, but really tasty and enjoyable.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2009
A clear yellow/golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of hop bitter with fruits and some yeast. The taste of hop bitters. It’s dry. There are fruits like citrus with hints of bananas. Spices like coriander in the back. The aftertaste is bitter and a little sweet.

thornecb (5545) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Pours a hazy gold into a snifter. Bright white head quickly recedes to skim surface and hug rim. Bright saaz and orange aromas. Upfront slick orange peel and wheat turning hoppy in the lasting resin finish.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Another damn fine impressive beer from Mikkeller. It has aromas of honey and spice. Sits very well on the tongue and is remarkably smooth. Flavor is of honey, spice, and hops. Very enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (13618) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle. Poured clear orange color with a medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate yeasty citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol burn as it warmed. My expectations where met.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2009
750mL bottle. Poured healthy lighter golden with a thick, well-retained off-white head. The aroma picked up bright earthy and grassy hoppage as well as lemon zest over sweeter light fruits and a touch of toasty banana.. grains of paradise and cloves accented.. I dug it. The flavor opened with tart orange zest (grains of paradise and coriander this time), with pale and light bready malts settling onto the middle.. more tacky spices and lots of floral and citrusy bitterness on the finish.. OK stuff, but kind of sharp. Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. tangy, bitter, and engaging.. too heavy for it to be refreshing.
