330 ml bottle - Dry hoppy taste somewhat detracts from an overall amazing Wit beer. I'm not sure if the combination works.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 9/5/2015. Pours a murky light golden with edium head which quickly disappears. The nose is spicy, zesty and hoppy Flavour wise orange and lemon are most prominent, with lots of spiciness in the mix as well (particularly peel), finished off by some firm hops. Full bodied with average carbonation. This is a really pleasant, flavoursome brew, though it only just registers as a Belgian wit.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is a truly outstanding beer. Pours a hazy coppery golden color with a rocky white head. The aroma is maybe the best attribute of this beer. It is intense, refreshing and very complex. The smell is dominated by coriander, orange peel and american hops with notes of banana, citrus and pineapple. It is refreshing and softly carbonated but creamy and mild at the same time. The taste starts sweet with orange, coriander and the wheat flavor typical for Belgian wit beers. Then comes the surprise, floral, herbal and hoppy at the back of the tongue just like an american style IPA. All these flavours are balanced perfectly.
Overall: Some people say this is the first ever Wheat IPA. Personally the are my two favourite styles and the way Mikkeller combined them made this the best beer I ever tasted.

I get the idea, but this is a bit much. Heavy hoppiness of citrus and spice notes creates a solid bitterness. Almost 0 sweetness, and more like a "White IPA" than a Wit. Interesting but not something I like all that much.
