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.

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.

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 (13344) - 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.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 5, 2009
750mL bottle. Pours a hazy, medium tarnished-golden color; thin off-white head with decent lacing. Sweet, juicy apricots in the aroma, with honey and Belgian sugar; a bit of bananas and creme brulee; complex sweetness, a touch syrupy. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: avg carbonation; again, lots of chewy Belgian sugar and juicy fruitiness; a syrupy sweet core without blatant sugar; nicely dense, solid mineral bitterness throughout; honestly, just a bit much; dense, ok drinkability. Lengthy finish: lots of mineral bitterness, nicely toasty and dry.
