From a 1.9 Pint bottle, Dark Golden in color,white head,fizzy,This taste exactly what i thought it would be a India Pale Whitbier beer hoppy,coriander,and creamy ,yet i believe there could be a better version with more hops.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is pretty basic with a mix of coriander, orange peel and lemons. The flavor is pithy oranges with coriander and pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The beer is very soft on the palate. Another good beer from Mikkeller.

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of hops, oats and grass. unclear yellow colour wit white head. Flavour of oats, wheat and discrete corianderseeds. Mild and hoppy at the same time. What a wit. Happy hoppy.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Beautiful hop spicy aroma not too overwhelming. Dirty hazy golden color. For a very hoppy wit not too bold on the palate. Somewhat sharp hop bite on the tongue. Full bodied for a wit, not really but a nice refresher.

dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 5, 2010
(750 ml bottle). Pours hazy yellow-orange liquid with thick white head. Yeast is evident and small carbonation bubbles. Aroma is musty, sour orange, some spice. Hop bitterness is surprising in the taste, almost peppery in the finish. Celery? Would have liked it a little sweeter; not as refreshing as a regular wit, but interesting. Alcohol is evident as it warms the chest/back of the throat. This is worth revisiting.

drpimento (3736) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Interesting idea, but it just doesn’t quite seem to work for me. The premise is fine, but the result IMHO doesn’t really hold up. Poured with a great huge foamy frothy fluffy cream colored head and lots of lace. Color is a very hazy to slightly cloudy amber. Aroma is yeast hops malt spice citrus. Flavor is like that too but with the orange peel and prominant added spice that seems to clash a bit with the hops. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is a fairly short odd bittersweet. Alcohol is muted. It’s ok, but I don’t think I’d get another any time soon.

hew3 (17) - , Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Pours pale amber, with a huge creamy head that leaves plent of lacing. Smooth body with nice carbonation. Spices, citrus and some sweetness followed by bitterness from the hops. A bit too much bitterness for me though.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle; poured a dull amber/gold color wtih a big off white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, spice, and a solid amount of hopping (cascade). Reminds me of a Belgian IPA, a style that has never eally clicked for me in terms of flavor. I just don’t find the elements, of yeast, wheat, spice, and hops to blend all that well together. Still its probably an average beer overall for me.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2010
Pour is hazed orangey amber with a thin sticky off white head...smell is hoppy (grapefruit) and perfumey with lots of grassy notes too...I guess I can get a bit of orange and coriander, but they sure seem subdued...the taste is like a medicinal/herbal IIPA...strongly citric and hoppy right up front...grapefruit...then a subtle sweetness attempts to back up the hoppy bitter flavor as an herbal and medicinal quality takes root...finish is chewy and cloying and herbal...an interesting and gross example of a style that should not exist?

3.9
potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 18, 2010
1 pint 9.4 oz. Hazy golden orange with frothy white head that thins. Aroma of sweet citrus fruit (apple, orange), honey, other fruity esters with yeast, Starts lightly bitter and ends sweet dry, flavors of sour pear and other tart fruits, also some spices. Bitter throughout. Alive on the tongue
