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.

Beerenberger (1591) - 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

ALIBALI (290) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2016
Riecht nach irgendeiner reifen hellen Frucht, vielleicht Birne? Auf jeden Fall sehr kräftig und interessant. Der Trunk klar, ein bißchen "nordisch", HOPPY und unfassbar langanhaltend. Trotzdem sind auch alle WITeigenen Merkmale vorhanden. Kräuter, schlanker ein wenig weinlastiger Körper und erfrischend spritzig. Klasse und definitv anders. 0,2/ca.40 Kronen in der MIKKELLER BAR, Aarhus. From Tap.

ciocanelu (911) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 24, 2016
Clear golden color with off-white, creamy head. Aroma is really fresh with coriander, cloves, lemongrass ans some sweet orange peel. Taste starts slightly sweet and spicy with fruity notes like tangerine and peach. Finishes more bitter but still spicy. Body is medium and creamy with a good amount of carbonation. Really nice overall, spicy but also hoppy, smooth body but also well carbonated, tasty yet easy to drink.

nybol (1130) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
IPW? jo tak! Den smager ikke af wit, men som så meget andet fra Mikkelers hånd så er det ikke hvad det ser ud til at være. Dette er ikke en wit (står jo sådan set også på flasken), den er humlet så man er hvid om munden, men alligevel meget frugtagtig. Måske bliver man med tiden mere modtagelig overfor øl i den "tunge" ende, men denne øl er meget humlet men efter min smag god og lige til at drikke. Let fyldig og næsten som saft efter lidt tid. Det er en øl som udvikler sig efterhånden som man drikker den, den starter et sted i min mund, men det sidste af den er et andet sted. En fornøjelse!
