Barwa jasnopomaranczowa. W butelcy wyra?ny osad, który zmetnia piwo. Piana obfita, ladnie oblepiajaca szklo. W aromacie delikatne cytrusy, wyrazne ziola (kolendra), lekki banan. W smaku delikatnie s?odkie z kwaskowym finishem. Alkohol prawie niewyczuwalny. Wysycenie srednie, goryczka troche wyzsza niz w normalnych wit?ach, aczkolwiek nadal niska. Bardzo ciekawy eksperyment od Mikkeller?a. Witbier z alkoholowa wkladka. Bardzo udane piwo. Pozycja obowiazkowa.

Keg at BD. Muddy gold. Very lively micro bubble action. Small creamy head. Caramel malts, vinous notes, pungent floral. Mouthfeel is enhanced by said micro bubbles, delivering big hits of sour apple/rosehip. Slightly confused beer for me, but no worries as the overall effect is not unpleasant, despite the sweetness brought by the malts and booze on the end.

tomekk1978 (849) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Barwa: słomkowa, na początku klarowna, choć na dnie czai się wyraźny osad. Piana biała, dość obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego. Aromat: chmielowo - przyprawowy (cytrusy, kolendra, zioła) oraz wyczuwalna nuta alkoholowa. Smak: słodowy, umiarkowanie słodki i pełny oraz lekko kwaskowy. Wyraźnie chmielowy, ale goryczka niewielka. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, choć na końcu lekko ogrzewa przełyk. Mikkeller nie schodzi poniżej ustalonego, wysokiego poziomu. Tym razem mamy do czynienia ze "wzmocniony," witbierem, który zadziwia silnym aromatem cytrusów, sporą dawką alkoholu i świetnym balansem. Piwo jest orzeźwiające i niezwykle pijalne, bowiem alkohol udało się świetnie zamaskować. Goryczka jest może nieco wyższa niż w większości witbierów, ale nadal niewielka. Być może minimalnie ściągająca, ale smak jest naprawdę mega cytrusowy. Dla miłośników stylu pozycja obowiązkowa.
