Tap. Light tan head on a very murky reddish brown body. Light citrus hops, fruity yeastiness and some slight sour light fruit in the aroma. Pleasantly hoppy, cleanish, nice citrus notes and drinks lightly. Lighter to medium slightly chalky body.

Saeglopur (375) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Webshop.
Amber, hazy body, with a big, frothy to creamy, light beige head.
Aroma of wheat, berries, tropical fruits, orange, some banana, caramel.
Taste is about the same, also spices and more orange peel.
Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes spicy, wheaty, medium bitter, fruity and a bit astringent.

Tasty! One of the best Wit beers Ive ever had, although it is pretty unique for this style and also has a bit with an IPA or Amber Ale in common. Great balance, lovely, manifold wheat and fruit notes and easy to drink despite the high ABV.

0,33 ml Bottle. Dla mnie to piwo dziwne nieco, przekombinowane. Belgian wit sie nie czuje. Zero pszenicznych nut. Wiecej jest tu Red Ale. Srednia piana ale kremowa i dosc trwala, mocno metne i bursztynowe piwo, nie do konca czerwone. Pszyprawy sa wyczuwalne sa one nieco rozgrzewajace. Amerykanske chmiele w pokaznej ilosci i zdominowaly wszystko. Slodowosc jest obecna ale nie moze sie pszebic przez chmielowa dominacje.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Orange beer, big frothy white head. Nose is lots of citrus, malt, hops, caramel. Flavor is citric notes, caramel, fruity hops, decent amount of spice. More citrus in the pretty hoppy and bitter finish. Not bad at all, heavy yet drinkable.

"Starts off with a surprising amount of citrusy hops, and this may not even have been a new/fresh bottle. Light spices, clove, yeast, and hops in equal measure. Not a great beer, but very quaffable, and shows NO sign of the abv. Glad I found a deal, though."

Sdaniel90 (398) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2014
3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. Murky dark amber. Sweet grainy aroma with hints of toffee, caramel, spices, dried fruits and alcohol. Robust with moderate carbonation. Strong bitter character with a heavy alcohol feel. Heavy, warming and complex.

This was poured into a mug and shared with my buddy Darin. The appearance was a semi - hazy burnt orange to slight ruddy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was somewhat there but slid for the most part. The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus to mandarin orange with a decent caramel base in the background. Lightly spiced through some coriander. The taste was mainly sweet but allowed a decent spice in the background. On the palate, there was a decent amount of spice to allow some carbonation to hit the tongue just right. It sat about a medium on the body and I found myself sipping this for the most part. Overall, well Darin paid for it and he said it was $33 for one bottle. Holy crap, so not worth it. This one is good but not worth the price.

Keg at BD. Very muddy dark orange. Nice creamy head. Nose is tart fruit, some playful yeasty vibes. Taste and palate excellent. Tight bubble structure marries well with dry, tart and bitter peel, little mineral, sweet vinous notes. Some caramel too. Dry finish with hop burn. Just great and stylistically between the cracks.

Keg at Brewdog. Orange, pretty clear, big white head. Aroma - bubblegum, cucumber, slightly sour, caramel, estery. Interesting. Body is medium, no real carbonation, quite foamy and rich. Taste is lemon, wheat, straw, slightly sour. Good.

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.
