Beerenberger (1278) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Strong fruity aroma with pine and citrus notes. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a mostly diminishing white head and I lacing. Some wheat is noted up front, but primarily the citrus hops takeover to provide an overriding grapefruit taste. The grapefruit continues in the aftertaste along with a bit of spice/pepper. Medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a crisp, clean fruit hopped wit that I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlazerT (35) - POLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle. Teku glass. Golden clousy with pretty big three fingers, white head. Medium lacing. The aroma is lemon, citrus hops, zesty orange, yeasty character, some spices (coriander), bread. Booze is noticable. Taste is lemon bitter, light sweet, definetely belgian character (yeast). Creamy, lively carbonation, semid-dry character and dry finish. In overall as a witbier it’s average, but complexity and hoppy character makes this beer interesting.

Unde (291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2014
Hazy golden orange beer with fluffy head on top and lots of beautiful lacing. Aroma has lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, spices, maybe coriander. Taste is spicy, with some yeast, bitter grapefruit and orange peel. Body is full and carbonation is high and crispy. Nice wit, and a brilliant beer again from Mikkeller.

pintbypint (2391) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
330ml brown bottle. Gold with expected haze. A few fingers worth of white foam on top. Spotty lace. Nose has zippy citrus hops, lots of oily orange zest. Taste has zesty orange peels and a bit of pine and coriander.. Bitter finish with more citrus in the aftertaste. Lightish bodied and medium carbonation. Unusual for a wit, but overall this super enjoyable hoppy wheat ale.
