330ml bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.
Looks: Cloudy hazy amber red colour with a thin ring of yeast sediments; One and a half finger head with crumpety off-white foam which last for 4 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet Ale malt, with strong lychee, jackfruits, canned peaches, honey, floral, sugar, resins, light pine, coriander and grass. Very pleasant!
Taste: Mid to strong sweet Ale malt, with strong orange peel, strong grapefruits, caramel, wheaty tartness, floral, strong molasses, pine, strong resins, spices, earth, biscuits, strong lemon, very strong bitter hops and grass. Wow!
Body: Mid to full body. Very slick and oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very rich Ale maltyness in a thick background, despite the presence of notable wheat and tartness. Strong West Coast hops dominates with fresh grapefruits, strong resin ooze, earth and pine, which enhances the already strong orange peels. Flowery and sweet with strong lemon to round. Excellent!
Hoppiness: Lychee, jackfruits, peaches, honey, floral, resins, and grass in nose. Strong grapefruits, floral, pine, strong resins, earth, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, high astringent sweet-bitter malty finish.
After Taste: Quite Dry. Spicy malty and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is essentially a strong Red IPA to the extent that wheatyness could not wear down its rich and sweet maltyness. The tropical fruity oozy hoppiness coupled with loads of orange peels, good looks and finishing, it’s really something special for the season. Great stuff and Merry X’mas!
Hazy red and white head. Nose is slight citrus and some herbal hops. Malty is in the taste but still is orange peel significant and also some herbal hops. Yeast and wheat is also a character well worth noticing in the taste. Almost like a Dolly Parton wit/ale. mlady (337) - Prievidza, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2016
Taping on the Camelot pub,pours cloudy dark orange with a small white head,aroma is mild spices and slight yeasty,fruity aroma of hops,guite bitter. AssKicker (458) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 22, 2016
Bue ŕ la pression. Une Witbier de couleur ambrée/rouge, ça a de quoi intriguer. Bonne mousse, nez agréable plutôt sur le toffee, tout en douceur. En bouche c’est full caramel mais sans lourdeur, tout en douceur, ça caresse délicatement les papilles. Amertume légčre, houblons quasiment absents en terme de saveurs. Trčs chouette bičre !

Enyhén édeskés íz, fűszerekkel a háttérben. Szép narancsos, vagy talán már enyhén vöröses szín. Összetett, komplex harmonikusokkal. Jó sör! Beer5000 (6433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2016
330 ml bottle. Unclear reddish orange body with a medium sized, off-white head. Aroma malt and citric fruit with hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, citric fruit, berries, Belgium spicy yeast and quite bitter. Medium body and good, fruity bitter aftertaste. Quite nice, but I also find it a bit out of balance. kanaclane (469) - - DEC 11, 2016
