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.

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.

This pours light yellow with a thin white head, scents of coriander and orange peel give it a smooth flavor. My new favorite beer!

One of the best beers ive ever had, i wih i gave this one the proper respect becasue in fairness to my rating, i was not sober at the time. But as drunk as i was, remembering this one was a light in the fog, absolutely delicious, great orange peel zest and coriander balance in the taste and just enough of a bight in the aftertaste that made this really enjoyable. another great one from mikkeller.

Botella 750cl. Color claro. Sabor muy cítrico. Un paso refrescante por el paladar y apetitosa.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2009 Appearance: Impressive, slightly darker hue than typical for the style; other than that, it is a prototype for the style Aroma: very typical of the style; tremendous complexity, yet seems to be in very harmonious balance; has a little bit of everything; honey, vanilla, orange, spice, and more! Flavor: loses points here mainly because the hops are too strong for this style; now, I am a hophead so I don’t mind this; in fact, I love this beer, but in terms of conforming to the witbier style characteristics, it does not; therefore my overall impression is high and the other categories will lose some points Mouthfeel: very good except probably a fuller body than is typical for the style, but again, that is most likely from the stronger hop presence

A really good beer. Yellow and light golden in color. Coriander very strong in it. Lots of citrus flavors. A really good beer. I like the mix between the hoppyness and the witbier notes.

750 from Capone’s. Pours hazy canary with huge fluffy white head. Nose is spicy florals, limey citrus, coriander, orange zest, saazy hops. Great nose on this. Tastes spicy, with the coriander and orange zest up front, Saaz hops, yeasty spicy florals, and a crisp, smooth, complex palate. This is a world class wit.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color. The head is frothy white. Hoppy aroma, sweet and citrusy. It is a little bready. Very hoppy flavour and citrus fruits. The breadiness is there but not too forward. Smooth mouthfeel and a dry aftertaste. Amazing beer which I will for sure pick up again.
