Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with large, frothy, white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of orange peel, spices, peach and herbs. Taste is medium sweet, finishes light to medium bitter, fruity (peach), orange peel, spices, some grapefruit and pine needles. Medium body, medium carbonation. A bit too much spices. Overall very good and unusual Christmas beer.

ALIBALI (2502) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2016
Grüne Paprika, piney Hops und ein undefinierbarer Kräutertouch dominieren den angehaucht ledrigen Geruch. Interessant. Im Mund ein wahrhaft hopfenbitterer Genosse, dem die Orange und malzige Süße nicht fremd sind. Die verwendeten Kräuter gehen im Alphasäuretropicfruitwirbel fast ein bißchen unter. Trotzdem ein sehr aussagekräftiges Christmas Ale. Aber Wit !? Kaum, höchstens das etwas getreidig pelzige Mundgefühl weißt drauf hin. 0,33/40DKK. Bottle. Aus dem MIKKELLER Online Store. Lecker.

Una barreja de Red i Wit, amb llúpol i crític. Una miqueta amarga al final.

GoufCustom (2178) - HONG KONG - DEC 24, 2016


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.

Bue à 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 légère, houblons quasiment absents en terme de saveurs. Très chouette bière !

Hazy amber-reddish with a big white head. Aroma is coriander, lime and hops. Taste is lime, caramel and yeast
