750 ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber colour, thick off-white head. Spicy aroma of caramel malt, citrus fruits and aromatic hops. The flavour is malty, with oranges and notes of tropical fruits, and a bitter, slightly piney hoppy finish. Warm, spicy aftertaste. Tasty, but not much to do with a witbier...

1500ml Bottle. The pour was a clear copper brown with a huge (3-4 fingers) cream colored fluffy head that had great retention and lasted throughout, reducing finally to a large cap with excellent sticky runny lacing. The aroma was of a biscuit malt, pine hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel), corriander and a touch of clove. The taste was a bitter malty with a mild caramel sweetness and a hint of citrus from the beginning, the finish on the other hand became rather hoppy with a slight citrus peel bitterness and a bit of spice towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long duration following the swallow, with a bitter hoppy and a spicy sweet taste left behind to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a step or two past light in body with a mildly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was an interesting brew for sure. Even though I really did not get much of the Witbier yeast flavor coming through, I did notice the slightly spicy citrusy flavor. But the Red Ale in this hybrid most definitely is the most dominant of the two...

MikeKeller (744) - Kemi, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle from Alko, Tornio. Hazy amber looks, big white head, nice! Strong fruity and aromatic hoppy aroma. Taste is quite bitter and a bit sweet at the same time. Body is medium/full, a notch more and it would be perfect. Another strongly hopped treat from the Mikkeller boys.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Great beer. Very heavy on the pine and citrus hops. Very fresh hop flavor and lightly sweet. A small hint of alcohol, some spices, and fruit in the finish. Not the typical winter seasonal.

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.

Big bottle: pours hazy amber with 2 finger fluffy sand colored head. Peach, yeast, herbal malts and fruity pebbles on the nose. More sweet bread malts, peach and fruity pebble hop sweetness on the tongue. Not sure I get a lot of wit characteristics but this is a tasty hoppy wheat hybrid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
