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.

mice (820) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Aavistuksen samea, kullankeltainen olut paksulla, hienosti pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Todella kaunis olut. Tuoksu humaloidun makea, hieman saippuainen. Maku toffeisen viljainen, humalointi varsin vahva ja mielenkiintoinen. Havuinen ja greippinen jälkimaku. Aika täyteläinen ja samalla pehmeän kuohkea suutuntuma.

Gurthnar (5031) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 3, 2016
Bottle at a tasting. Assertively hoppy, citrusy resiny zesty. Balanced bitterness and sweetish maltiness. Of malt mostlybresidual sugar remains, little flavour. Spiciness somewhat hidden below the hops. Easy drinking, refreshing.
