Brown amber with a hit of ruby ............. nice cap. Hoppy with hit of spice, hints of feet, not a bad aroma. Dont hit ant wit elements the hops are just obliterating it. Taste is same but more better.... words are good. Wheat I can taste now kind of a banana but so many hops, hops, hops hops. Floral and nondiscript citrus. Tanks Jeff.

Keg at Brewdog Shepard?s bush at the weird beard launch. Aroma is spicy tangy, tart funky orange with a touch of caramel malts. Touch of sour on the nose as well. Translucent orange red coloured pour with a big lasting white head. Flavour is funky fermenting orange, touch of sour, touch of caramel malts and wheats. Palate is fairly full and smooth. Moderate carbonation. Some alcohol presence.

mandaritto (33) - LATVIA - JUN 14, 2014
Aroma - hopps and vanilla. Very ballanced beer, with a bit of tangerine or orange peel. Not too pushy, I like the bitterness of the hops. It’s complicated how this beer can be sweet and bitter in the same time.

KombatAle (114) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
At kerst bier festival Copper, white foam. Some flowery citric yeasty notes in the aroma. Carbonated a lot, light mouthfeel. Again malty and then hoppy. But not incredible

tobias (202) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Magnum bottle: bright copper pour with fluffy white head. Aroma is strong if citrus with hints of honey, malt and spice. Pretty clean. I would never guess this was a Belgian style beer. Orange, malt/honey with spice and bitterness. Long finish. Very drinkable. Not what I expected but I like it a lot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4636) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Deep orange and light copper coloured body with a rich, four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of spruce, bright hops, alcohol, tons of bread, yeast and a little earthy malt. Medium-bodied; Super pungent earthy malt flavours up front with a deep caremlised sugar flavour and some spice, spruce and herbal note right behind. Aftertaste is quite deep and showing a lot of bread and yeast, but the spice and sugars last long. Overall, a nice spiced beer, but this isn’t a witbier and I’m not exactly sure what a red ale is - so i’m not sure what category this belongs in, but definitely not wit. Good to try, but as with most Mik beers - way overrated and almost purely a marketing bit. I sampled this magnum bottle (1,5L) purchased and shared by Kevin on my hockey team on 06-February-2014 - Thanks Kev!

Aroma of Belgium style ale, maybe of the yeast culture used. Fresh, flowery, fruity, hoppy. Quite sweet enjoyable beer which I would enjoy in the evening while watching some movie.
