Faint indistinct mint and cherry aroma. Clear amber, medium yellow head, good lace. Mint, hay, amd overripe orange flavor.. Odd beer, but it kind of works.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Magnum thanks to mar) pours an opaque copper-ruby with soapy tan bubbles that donít stick around too long. Nose of pine, honey, richness, citrus and caramel. Taste is more bitter than I expected for the age and from the nose, pine, citrus peel, honey, rich caramel, and a linger thatís a bit estery but also sweet. Medium thick body, thatís oily and delicious.

75 cL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass at home. Plentiful bubbly head over a fizzy, opaque red/orange beer. Lovely hopped citrus orange aroma. Dry, and bitter, and a little spiced. Pretty good. Just a hint of alcohol potency.

Bottle thanks to FletchFighters. Pours a light golden orange with billowy white head. Aromas of floral fruity hops. Flavours show lots of wheat and a decent resiny bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Good stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated this last night on paper. Giant bottle (1 qt. 1 pt. 2.7 oz, to be exact) found on the discount shelf at Enoteca in PF, ID shared with Brenn79. Aroma is way hoppy. I get spruce needles (maybe?), lemon, coriander. Pours cloudy orange with a giant long-lasting off-white pillowy head. Creamy lace sheets the glass. Taste starts out sweet and spicy and finishes wit a bitter hop bite. Definitely more red ale or IPAish than witbier. Crisp, interesting, tasty. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is creamy. I was really impressed with this at first, but it started to get a little old. That was a really big bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 qt. 1 pt. 2.7 oz btl- Pours a very hazy orange with a dense off white head, very nice looking beer. The aroma is hoppy, very spicy, Christmas spices, mint and cinnamon, coriander. Taste is very wheaty, Christmas spices, alcohol is very noticeable. Body is medium, carbonation is also medium. Overall I really liked it, I do wish that alcoholic bite would subside though.
