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.

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.

Long Island, NY - Magnum bottle that survived the holiday season. It poured a hazy burnt orange color with lots of fluffy white head. Aroma was highly floral and hoppy, odd for a Witbier. Taste is where I got confused, no witbier at all. All that I got were hops and bitterness. Don't get me wrong this is an awesome brew a hybrid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught pours reddish brown with whitish head. Aromas are tropical fruit like pineapple and mango with some earthiness. Taste is fruity, earthy, and a nice bitter hop bite. Overall, a nicely done beer. Would gladly have it again.

Orange/yellow with a small off-white head. Aroma is huge on the pine needles/grass with oranges, peaches, and sweet syrup in the background. Flavor is a lot like the aroma but with belgian spices/yeast added. A lot hoppy than I would have expected as well.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2012
THOUGHTS: Nice, but not Christmasy. Nice hybrid. Actually very nice. It kept getting better as it warmed. Orange, caramel and spice were the main aromas and flavors. TECHNICAL: Magnum bottle. Poured a cloudy, light to medium amber with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly, but slowly, diminished and that left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel and wheat; moderate to heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; light to moderate doughy, spicy and dusty yeast; orange; and coriander. The initial flavor was light to mod sweet, mod to heavily acidic and moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, mod to heavily acidic and heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, wheat, lots of citrus, orange, coriander, pepper, grapefruit; some other fruitiness, spicy yeast and hops, and some metallic hops. The medium to full body was creamy, then dry with fizzy carbonation and a metallic and moderately astringent finish.

2010 bottle at Camp Beer IX. Pours a clear orange copper with smalll off white head.  Hoppy floral and yeast aroma. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt with honey flavor. Hides the alcohol well, a very good Belgian wit from Mikkelller.

Massive Mikkeller pt.2 This is what I imagine a Christmas beer tasting like. Pretty much spot on christmas tree. Piney and earthy with hints of spice. Definitely different but pretty good.
