Tjoxen (173) - - DEC 31, 2012
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!

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2015
Cloudy carroty / dark orange / brownish color, huge tan head. Hoppy and yeasty aroma, lots and lots of fruit, just wonderful. Orange, peach, some pine and biscuit. Medium to heavy bitterness and medium sweetness. Full body, average carbonation. Not a classic wit, extremely pleasant.
(Svijet Piva 1,5l bottle)

DruncanVeasey (7633) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
Bottle, 06/01/15. Muddied peach with a low clumping skim of head. Exotic, heavily perfumed aroma with suggestions of caraway, Haribo, jasmine and grenadine syrup. Mouth slightly agape with Californian peach and the ripe dragon fruit of hop Belgianed to the nines with mysterious seeds, dried flowers and flicked patchouli ash. Stamped indelibly with Belgium. Mad and soupy. Aggressive with spice like Belgian beer tasted when first I tasted it. Hops and spices aromatically cocktailed. Mad for the no alcohol beers of late but I do miss sinking a big spicy Belgian and talking bollocks at the internet.

Idiosynkrasie (4797) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 13, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average to huge, frothy, fully lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Intense, resinous hoppy aroma, citrusy notes of grapefruit and orange. Taste is bitter hoppy, lots of grapefruit, some blood orange, orange zest, a sweaty resinous touch, moderately sweet caramel malty basis. I guess I’d rubricated it under IIPA in a blind tasting.

GlasgowTAD (473) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2015
Pours a murky golden yellow with a frothy white head which remains. Aroma is hop resin, citrus orange, slight spices, slight coriander and a hint of pepper. Taste is coriander, spices, pepper and citrus which leads to a medium bitter finish. Full bodied with a slick mouthfeel.

kevinator (1306) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2015
When witbier and IPA meet. Great floral and citrus aroma. Nice light golden color. Full mouthfeel with good carbonation as this bottle had some age on it. Fantastic flavor with hops bitterness up front balanced by wheat and spices to make for a wonderful holiday treat.
