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.

1500ml bottle. Red White Christmas on Christmas day 2011- beer number 1500 , doesn’t get much better than this. A big thick beige coloured head head greets you and the beer itself is a bold deep amber, almost orange colour. Pine needles and orange peel dominate the aroma which is very pleasing. The flavour is very strong and stays in the mouth for a long time. Body is strong and leads into a very smooth and silk like texture. Aftertaste is piney. It took a few hours to work my way through this one but it was a few hours well spent.

This is the 2010 vintage drank with a year of age on it. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has some wheat and earthy notes, but there is also a leathery quality that reminds me of beers that have brett in it. Since I don’t think brett is in the beer, I am not sure what is going on. The flavor also has a leathery component to it. I also get a lot of Belgian yeast and earth notes, as well as some orange citrus. The alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure brett is accidentally in the beer or if something else is going on that leads me to get the brett qualities. Regardless, the beer was pretty good.
