wiedrzensky (560) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 8, 2015
Shared bottle. Pours is cloudy amber with big white head, leaves some lacing. Aroma of malts, caramel, biscuits, orange peel, fruity and floral. Taste is medium bitter, hints of sweetnes, caramel mouthfeel. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. More a red ale than a witbier, good one.

katrinaez (947) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2015
I like the beer a lot, but I wouldn’t consider it a winter warmer due to the lightness in color and heavy hops. the white is too light and the red ale is just hoppy. The beer is really tasty, but not to style. Opaque red with a nice dry finish. Tap

Moebbels (613) - FINLAND - DEC 5, 2015
A hazy amber body with a scarce white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has notes of lemon peels, caramel and white pepper. Taste is quite sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Medium carbonation and fairly rich palate. This is a bit too sweet for my palate but the aroma is nice and refreshing.

martin00sr (1979) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle from the Mikkeller Christmas Calendar. Hazy amber with small offwhite head. Hoppy, caramely aroma, peach and apricot. Sweetish citrus flavour, light spice and yeast, hazelnuts, more caramel and alcohol. Hoppy bitterness.

michael_bb (31) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2015
Beautiful amber brown with perfect creamy head. Really complex aroma, the banana amb bread from the wheat is noticeable, but so is the bread and caramel from the roasted malt. Also there’s some herbs and grass hidden in there too. Taste is medium bitter with some light sweetness, both distinguishable. It’s waaay too fizzy for me and it has a strong bitter finish. Overall a nice blend of two styles, though the ’witbier’ part of it is present in aroma, but not too much in taste.

On 33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Grünerløkka. Hazy deep golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; hoppy, malt, lightly roasted , and citrus. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness & balance. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
