Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
Small glass from tap at The Bishop Arms in Copenhagen where it was nicely served at the very right drinking temperature. Remaining patchy surface to a red-orange coloured body, cloudy. Red oranges on the nose. Citrus fruity taste carefully added by Christmas spices like cinnamon. Caramel and wheat beneath. Lingering finish of citrus shells. Full bodied. Very much to my liking. (Copenhagen 09.12.2013).

BenH (2198) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Pours almost clear amber with pinkish red hue. Aroma of dried fruit, sherry, resinous pine, caramel. Taste of sherry fruits, raisins, plum, orange and pine, biscuit, toffee. Quite crisp. Very tasty and nothing like a witbier, possibly due to age or possibly because it was never really like one to begin with

Kosmokrator (457) - ITALY - DEC 15, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Alla spina. Nebuloso color aranciato con un soffice velo di schiuma biancastra. Sentori di luppolo, albicocche sciroppate, toffee e arancia rossa; gusto dolciastro, luppolato, fruttato e leggermente speziato con un retrogusto amarognolo con note di cannella e scorze di agrumi. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, struttura setosa. Ricorda tutto tranne che una witbier, ma indipendentemente dallo stile resta molto buona!

pdx77 (1259) - Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2013
On draught at 2013 Holiday Beer Summit at Roscoe’s. Fizzy dark amber color. Aroma is orange peel, nutmeg, coriander, and citrus hops. Taste is like a spiced mulled wine but with a citrus hoppiness and light malt profile, but with a much better mouthfeel and balance. Great hybrid.

Skinnyviking (6792) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Draught. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Hazy orange body. Sweeet citrussy spicy aroma and flavor with a heavy shot of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden. When I look of the former ratings I wonder a bit and think it is far too overrated. The Mikkeller brand is hyped, could that be the reason?

Bamsen78 (2991) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2013
Draught @ Christian Firtal, Odense. Pours hazy orange amber with small off-white head. Clear, sweet aroma of fruit, malt, and caramel, with touches of cloves and cinnamon. Sweet, malty and caramellish flavour, with fruity notes and pronounced hints of spices. Lingering, warm and bitter finish. Nice.
