sampled 75 cl. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival 2011: A: deep hazy orange with seizable fluffy white head – S: delicious sweet american hops & touch on the sweeter side spices – T: Belgian yeast, oranges & citrus, fruity, touch of spices & hint malt, very hoppy, sweetness in the back, even touch “rijsttaart” in the finish, balanced, sweet & hoppy – B: dry & fizzy – delicious but more of an IIPA than a wit

rougeau13 (2275) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Deep, clear, amber-orange with a big fluffy cream colored head. Lacing is pretty thick. Aroma of citrus, caramel, slight raisin and spice. Taste is sweet fruit, yeast and malt with a substantial finishing bitterness. Medium bodied, pretty full actually for the style, with lively, fizzy carbonation and dry. Nice rendition of a witbier, a lot hoppier than most, and for the most part, not even resembling the typical wit. It seems like more of an IPA with Belgian yeast. Merry Christmas to me.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2011
Keg at Craft. Cloudy amber orange colour with small bubbly white head. Aroma is a touch spicy and quite malty. Bit of ginger too, and a bit cakey. Fruity too. Taste not as exciting as the smell, but nice and smooth, malty and a bit spicy. Bit of bitterness, especially in the finish. Fruit in there too. Towards the end it gets a bit boozy, but still lots of spicy fruit. Very nice.

Tap. Orange amber color with a solid creamy head. Honeyed nose with hints of pine wood and maple syrup. The taste is slightly acidic, sweet, hot and hoppy. The body’s medium full, the finish is long. Overall, a nice full-bodied wit.

sebletitje (8124) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2011
15cl bottle sample @ Kerstbierfestival ’11, Essen. Orangée brumeuse, col ocre épais. Arôme rappelle plus une IPA que une blanche, bouquet épicé d’hiver, note de pamplemousse et agrumes bien en avant. En bouche, houblon citrus et autres agrumes, pamplemousse, fini est léger avec un malt en retrait, fleuri presque herbacée allant vers la camomille. Pas mauvaise, mais pour moi, plus une IPA festive.

trapez (1554) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2011
Large bottle. Aroma dominated by the hops with lots of grass and hay. Slightly unclear orange colour with white head. Spicy flavour with some orange and fresh hops bitterness. Not very Christmaslike but a nice Christmas present.
