Brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium.
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.

lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Pale yellow body under a bright white, sticky head with strong lacing. Aroma is faint, but enticing, banana, cloves, wheat, pepper. Flavor is cinnamon, banana, arugula, and peppercorns. Texture is dry, crisp, active, and lightly biting. Overall, a great hoppy take on the style, and a delicious example of a witbier.

The aroma is full of hops (cascade), wheat, oat, spices, oranges, yeast and coriander. The color is beautifully amber orange and hazy. The head is rocky and white. The taste is full of hops, oranges and spices. A long a slightly bitter finish. The texture is nicely creamy. The body is light. An excellent beer!

Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Cloudy yellow/orange coloured, medium sized white head, mild wheaty nose. Sweetish malty, light yeasty, wheaty, spices and orange with notes of herbs and coriander in the finish. All in all just good.

4cl sample at Mikkeller Bangkok beer week. Thin white head. Very hazy golden pour. Nice bitterness. Well hidden alcohol. Very good

HonusWagner (1682) - Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2014
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.

Lubiere (10721) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
A hazed blonde wit with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light orange pulp, cloves, light maple. In mouth, a nice fruity banana malt with light grassy hops, light talcum, cloves, nice.

GuideDogSaint (670) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 18, 2014
330ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours golden with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma with some orange and spice. Bitter finish. Certainly not a traditional wit in any shape or form.

Una witbier rivoluzionaria, che rinterpreta questo stile in chiave luppolata e fruttata, con una buona presenza amara e note di agrume e frutta gialla. Molto molto interessante-
