kidmartinek (3508) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Murky golden color with a small, fine white head. The aroma is like wet stone and old. The palate is crisp, cool and most refreshing. The flavor is light belgian yeast, old wet stone amd finishes with a hint of bitteesweet fruit. Very good.

sfuen03 (305) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 11, 2014
Average-big white head, creamy and long lasting. Golden hazy liquid. Aroma is complex and balanced: bread, vanilla, citrus, a little spicy. Light body, creamy mouthfeel, dry finish, lively carbonation. Taste is fruity and yeasty; very surprising, complex and amazingly balanced.

andrewturba (949) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a hazy gold with a decent white head that slowly settles and leaves moderate lace on the glass. Aroma is honey notes, citrus, orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast, and floral. Flavour is citrus, orange, grapefruit, spicy noble hops, medium bitterness, mild honey like sweetness, spicy Belgian yeast, coriander, and a medium dry finish. Ipw or white ipa not sure what to call it but I approve!

mikkos (176) - FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Murky yellow beer with a nice white head. Aroma is delicious pineapple, fruits and yeast. Taste is fruity yeasty witbeerlike with a hoppiness that is really quite good. Mouthfeel lacks a bit and the finish could be longer. Good nevertheless! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nov 2013 - Bottle BB 2015. Golden amber, clear, sparkling in a hypnotically uniform way, a couple of cm of fluffy white head. Nice lacing. Smell...lots going on - orange, cheap perfume, lots of rose, deep caramel, white wine, minerals. Body is medium, slightly foamy, medium carbonation. Taste is musty caramel malts, slightly sour, lager finish. For all the hops used, the saaz is the only one that is really coming across. The taste isn’t blowing me away, which is a shame given how good this looks and smells. Decent overall. I prefer smelling it to drinking it. (3.5)

June 2014 - Keg at Brewdog. Dark yellow, clear and still, decent foamy white head. Aroma - citrus hops, sweet peachy caramel. Body is medium, pretty smooth, a touch foamy. Taste is medicinal, herbal, spice, popadom. Interesting. (3.5)

Tide (1643) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle from Alko. A bit hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, mango, lime, pine and wheat. Bitter finish with citrus, mango and pine. Magnificent witbier.

Poured from a bomber into a snifter glass a cloudy orange with a thick creamy head. Aroma of sweet banana and strong citrus hop. Flavors are confusing between a classic Belgium wit & incredible of which I both enjoy immensely. All is good here with high carbonation. Mikkeller continues to push the envelope of brewing uniqueness and this brew is excellent.

hoplover66 (3) - SPAIN - NOV 2, 2013 does not count
Color amarillo claro y turbio. Aroma algo cítrico. Muy buen paladar, equilibrado, con mucho lupulo y cuerpo medio. Deja un postgusto más típico de una IPA. Extraordinaria.
