WTF ...... on tap ..... this is crystal clear bronze I have never seen a Wit that looks like this. Small cap to. Aroma is very mild but seems right. Wheat, big apple juice, very very mild. I do hit hops in the nose but not that much. Strange taste, apple, banana, yeast and citrus. Not sure what to think. Comes across very sweet, kind of tastes like a hangover. Perfumy alcohol ........ that is not good to find. Feel is to thin. I know this not a true Wit but still what ells can I compare it to, I’d so much rathe have a Ho or a Blach de cham. I can drink this but i think i’ll never have it again. In my opinion this is a rare miss by Mikkeller. Marks do seem to low.
Very floral and fruity. Pleasing aroma. Usual suspects plus maybe some chamomile? Body is bigger, but still smooth, light, and refreshing. A nice little twist and the best or one of the best wits out there. Too bad it costs more than a 4 pack of Allagash...
Sampled on 6/17/2010. This wit pours a slightly hazy medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with some tartness and some spices. A medium bodied wit. The malts are fruity and sweet with a tart finish. Yeasty and bright. The hops are floral and spicy. Light and refreshing. Lively carbonation. Nice spicy finish. This is a nice beer for a warm summer evening. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with some spiciness.
Mikkeller beers are starting to get good distribution in Canada. This is one I was able to try recently and I have to say I was quire impressed with the entire offering. The appearance was 'on' with a hazy golden orange pour with a huge white bubbly head. There was citrus and floral notes in the air. Very refreshing too. There was a definite zestiness to the flavour here not found in other Belgian wits
Aroma was great, apricot, lemon, tangerine, orange, honey, and even some apple along with some spice notes. The body was a nice hazy apricot color with a nice head that left some decent lace. Flavor started with honey and some lemon, then the spices came out, some alcohol was present. Overall the price sucked, but an excellent brew, a very big wit with some ipa characteristics, very nice.
Hazy golden with a rich white foam. Yeasty and fruity aroma of pine-apples with a subtle spiciness. Medium-bodied with notes of mild spicy notes of coriander and white pepper with fruity undertones of dried apricots and pine-apples. Dryish yeasty finish of crackers, banana and dried apricots.
Bottle: Poured a hazy light golden yellow color ale with a quite large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of wheat malt and light spices is overshadowed by some Cascade, Saaz and Amarillo hops. Taste is also very much dominated by citrus notes originating from the Cascade hops and a dry finish from the Saaz hops. Body si full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Interesting experiment that made me realize that I like my Wit without too much hops.
2008 Bottle; Sampled April 2009
A solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a four-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head that is nice and long lasting and leaves a nice thick lace on the sides of my glass. The beer is a bright gold color that shows hints of haze and a brighter gold color when held up to the light. The aroma has an expressive, sweet orange zest note as well as a grassy, cracker like grain note. The citrus aromatics are really the dominant note here; it is refreshing, but can seem a bit simplistic at times.
Sweet grain flavors mix with tart citrus notes (more than just orange, with some Meyer lemon notes) up front. The finish has an astringency to it that is a bit like the pin in a citrus fruit, slightly tannic and bitter. The finish also has a bit of spiciness to it; a earthy pepper not as well as a sort of green coriander flavor is noticeable. Actually, speaking of green flavors, this beer actually has a green, sort of vegetable flavor to it. The flavor is a cross between a bell pepper and a leafy herbal note; this last reminds me of a mix of basil and kefir lime leaf. The flavor is spice and citrus dominated, but the grain does contribute a back drop of grassy wheat flavors, some sweet grain notes and a dry, cracker like grain note in the finish. The body is a bit heavier than a standard strength Wit, with a touch of viscous heft and a noticeable body, but it is still quite quaffable and refreshing.
This is an enjoyable beer, especially if one is fond of Wits. It is not overly complex and could certainly use some more fermentation complexity.
Pour was hazy white-golden with a nice frothy foamy white-ish colored head with good lacing. The aroma was musty yeast, strong spiciness more than anything "orangey," lighter fruit presence. The flavor followed suit, excellent strong spicing over top of a good and strong wit base. Alcohol was quite pleasant and under control, mouthfeel full bodied, highly carbonated. Overall, a very strong showing in the imperial wit niche.
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. Pours slightly hazy orange color with a huge fluffy off-white head and the beer laced well. The aroma is zesty and fruity, spices, and a surprising amount of hops round out the scent. The flavor is coriander, apples, and hops, an overall zesty-saazy taste. The beer finishes peppery with spices. Some alcohol is apparent here in the way of a tang flavor but it's mostly just a subtle reminder that this isn't a slug in the sun kind of beer. I liked this one... I'd have to agree with the name, this is not just another wit.
