4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy amber with offwhite head. Quite some lacing. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit and orange peel. Taste is bitter of orange and grapefruit. Its very dry.
This is exactly how it should taste and for once I’m happy its a 1500ml bottle and I dont have to share it with someone else!
I will have a happy new year!

Aroma of malt, caramel, sweet fruits, pine, yeasty notes, hint of herbs, fresh hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a long medium bitter finish. Wonderfully balanced. Has little to do with Witbier, but who cares? Because it’s a damn tasty beer.

W aromacie słodko, karmelowo, kandyzowane owoce, cytrusy. Połączenie DIPA i Barley Wine. W smaku także dość słodko, z goryczką średnią, alkoholową, charaktaerystyczną dla belgijskich tripli itp. Bardzo dobre!

big bottle 1500ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Why to chear New Year 2015 with champagne when this is in the house;))). Orange/amber coloured, huge off-white head, lively carbonation, yeasty spicy nose. Malty, spicy, yeasty and fruity with touch of grapefruit and oranges. Mild grassy and spicy finish. Not the best from the style but good enough.

Bottle at home on Christmas Eve. Yeah so I had another one instead of peeling potatoes, trimming sprouts and making Christmas butter. Overall a good beer. Citrus, straw, sour-ish taste. Warming. Yum.

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours hazy yellow with a large white head. The aroma is lemon and floral. The taste is dry, light bitter, not awesome.

Bottle split two ways. Reddish pour with a frothy head. Quite hoppy with peaches, orange peel, some citrus and vanilla sweetness. Finish is light bitter. More of a amber ale than anything else.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a magnum bottle on New Year’s Eve, thanks Stefan. Hazy orange beer with copper hue under a sticky, stable, pale beige head. Perfumey aroma of candied orange, fresh apricot, pipe tobacco, pink grapefruit, pumpkin soup, sundried tomatoes, honey, bell peppers, apple sauce, brown bread, Grand Marnier, ginger and brown rhum. Fresh citrusy and very fruity onset, sweetish with a strong candied orange impression, marmelade, tomato accent, some sourish wheat, yeasty, smooth caramelly malt sweetness, complex spicy notes, long peppery and citrusy hop bitterness in the finish along with malt sweetness and some warming alcohol. Interesting beer which has survived the years of cellaring exceptionally well, but I fail to see the link with either a witbier or an Irish red; if I had to taste this blind, my guess in terms of style would be an American strong ale.

Really nice balance to this Christmas hybrid style, one of the better I had this year, especially so on tap if you can get it (thank god for Mikkeller Bar SF!)
