Bottle at DØE tasting. Slight hazy orangey with a very large white head. Aroma heavy hoppy and spicy (dryhopped). Flavor light sweet, medium+ spicy (citrus, orange), heavy bitter. Light body, dry ending, wit-bier? Refreshing, solid hopped.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Hazy light orange with a diminishing whiter head. Nose is very interesting. Herbs, sage, chamomile. Similar to Stillwater Cellar Door. Nice floral component. Taste is quite nice: big bitterness, lavender, powerful soapy hops. Even sweet orange juice in the nose Overall great stuff. Doesn’t feel like "Christmas ale" which is nice. Super hoppy, nice garden herb character. Yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Thanks GT2. Hazy golden pour with a small white head. Crisp nectar fruits and dough with spicy hints lead to lemon and wheat. Medium body with low coronation and a dry crisp finish.

Borresteijn (4781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2011
On tap at Orsted Olbar. Hazy amber colour, white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity, pineapple, curacao. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, fruity, a bit cloying, light wheat tartness, curacao, mandarines, bitter fruity hoppy finish. Medium bodied. A bit weird, not bad but not exactly to my taste.

craftycarl21 (2243) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draught at Churchkey. Hazy amber pour with a smallish bubbly white head. Nose holds an interesting combination of citrus hops, grass, and molasses malt that melds with certainly prevalent orange peel and coriander spice; definitely an interesting combo. Flavor is much of the same; the blend of American strong and Belgian wit styles doesn’t necessarily work, but it is fairly complex and intriguing if nothing else. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma with hint of caramel and dried fruit. Pine and citrus hop flavors with a spiced, yeasty finish.

75 cl bottle. BBE 15.08.2018.
Slightly hazy copper color with lacy foam. Lots of floral hops, lemony fruits and spice notes on the nose, some orange zest and yeast also. Flavor of caramel malts, fruits, some toffee and spice notes and yeast. Smooth, velvety palate with a spicy kick. No mentionable differences compared to the more manly-sized bottle.
1.5 l bottle. BBE 15.09.2019. 2009 vintage.
Pours hazy copper colour with a huge head. Aroma of crisp hoppy fruits, mild caramel malts, grass, some floral and herbal notes. Flavour of toffee, ripe fruits, caramel, grass, mild spices, yeast and earth notes. Very nice.

150 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, BBE 15.09.2019
Foaming stuff. Sweetish aroma with strawberries and hints of raspberries. Also some exotic fruits from hops. Lots of CO2 on palate. Flavour is sweetish with exotic fruits, some strawberries and hints of sugar. Rather far from witbier, but nice still.

75 cl bottle @ home, BBE 22.08.2018
Had to have a fresh bottle too. And it was rather strong on american hops – and a nice one too. Score estimate: 3.8‐3.9.
