Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Hazy orange body. Big, white head. Lemon, cloves, ester nose. Banana, citrus, mango, pinapple, peach, cloves and orange flavour. Extremely refreshing. Sweet. Slightly bitter ending. Medium body and carbonation. Very, very good! Edit: 7,6% ABV, are you kidding me? Would’ve guessed 5%, tops. Impressively refreshing beer, more so at this ABV.

GlasgowTAD (1309) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Tap at Mikkeller Singapore. Pours clear orange with a small white head which is semi-foamy in appearance. Aroma is coriander, orange zest, basil. Taste is marmalade sweet, herbal bitter, slight vanilla sweet. Double cream texture (yep, drank some double cream once and it was good. No regrets).

pours straw like golden color, slightly haze, with creamy white stable head. aroma: intense hop aroma, with spicy, pine note, supported with orange peel and coriander. Flavor is very similar, with biscuit like malt flavor, supported and pretty well balanced with hops and spices, which are characteristics for the style. finish is slightly dry, intense fruity. Body is medium, texture is soft, carbonation is medium. Interesting interpretation of a style.

ALIBALI (433) - 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.

Pours dark orange with a cream head. Lots of citrus on the nose. Quite tart at first with lots of citrus and some wheat, pretty hoppy and fresh.

ciocanelu (1073) - 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.

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!
