330ml bottle. Picked up at my old downtown wine store haunt, after way too long of an absence. Damned be these lifestyle and career changes!

This beer pours a cloudy medium golden amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, slickly foamy off-white head, which leaves some bicycle chain lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of semi-sweet wheat grain, sassy floral, grassy, citrusy hops, lemon pepper, a bit of earthy, spicy coriander, uppity yeast, and a touch of warming alcohol. The taste is more soft, neutered wheat grain, lemon oil, white pepper, confused coriander, smirking settled yeast, muted citrus and grassy hops, and a subtly rising alcohol edge.

The carbonation is lo-fi frothy in nature, the body a lulling medium-light weight, and mostly smooth, as the alcohol just can't seem to help itself in this instance. It finishes with a moderately strong drying trend - the grain gaining a sharp tint, and the spice, hops, and booze colluding as such.

The imperialization of a witbier can go so, so bad, given the inherent delicate aspects of the base style. Here, we get a generally full-flavoured wit, with some extra, somewhat prickly alcohol, though nothing that really detracts from the overall drinkability of this jazzed up offering.

first time i had this wit style. the foam definitely stayed and poured an amber brown, smell came out slightly fruity and tasted in the foam as well...but once i got to the beer it was a build up of hops that kick in. not as strong and evident as an ipa but packs a punch with some herb notes and fizzles out on a great honey and sweet taste. i enjoyed it, definitely need one more tasting to do it justice.

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.

Apearence: A light amber color, that is almost clear.

Smell: The smell is citrussy from the American hops and the orange peel used.

Taste: The taste is hoppy, citrussy and a bitter aftertaste from the hops used. I could not taste the coriander seeds, Mikeller claims to use in this beer.

Mouthfeel: The beer has a fresh feeling in the mouth, because of the carbonation and the hops used.

Drinkability: I think this beer is fairly easy to drink even on a summers day, because the hops and the carbonation give it a nice fresh taste.

Overal: The beer is a tasty beer, but it did not met my expectations. I expected a strong witbeer, but instead it taste more like a Pale Ale.

A: poured a hazy golden orange with pale yellow highlights and had a finger of fronthy head leaving lots of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots of citrus and spice come out on the aroma with some wheaty, coriander, light hop notes but had lots of malty sweetness for sure.

T: the citrus flavors also dominate the taste alongside, coriander with various other spices, wheat, mild grassy hops accents and a good sweet malty sweetness.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, malty, wheaty, spice, and citrusy finish.

D: definitely a very nice wit beer and probably one of my favorites now which was drinking nice as well.

Errr... Probably the darkest witbier I've ever had, a very deep amber hue, almost opaque with sediment and full of plenty of agitated floaties. Head is crackling and full, leaving some stonework lacing down the inside of the glass. Body is very heav, and this together with the opacity means it's an intense looking beer. And a *very* intense looking witbier.

Nose is crisp with a lemony citrus character that you could almost mistake for hops. It has an edge of Belgian acidity to it, almost like a lambic, or the rusticness of brett on the nose. Bright and light, and really rather pleasant.

Taste is again very weird, and really unsuitable for a place in the witbier genre. Here, there's a pleasant light hop bite, and a touch of zingy true lemon or orange rind, that just makes you question whether what you taste really is hops. Nice nutty character from the yeast, and a touch of Belgian esters to round it out. It still has that classic Mikkeller character to my mind (perhaps it's a De Proef character, in reality), which anchors it to something else.

It's not just another wit: in fact, I'd hazard a comment that it's not a wit at all. This is an odd little beer with plenty of citrus and spice, but from all the wrong directions. But Mikkeller, as always, make the weird work for them, and this is a very tasty and enjoyable beer.

Mikkeller reconstructs the essence of classy Belgian witbiers but pushes the power and dryness to heightened strength of 7.4%. Curious to see how the elevated alcohol plays on the palate and whether it interferes with the subtle perfume and soft wheat character.

This "Not Just Another" witbier pours with the most delicate and fragile coloration and foam- very light, canary yellow in color and with a glaze of protein and yeast allow for a diffused glow to permit. Foamy with a cottony-white head that persists and retains very well and in somewhat liquidy fashion- Easily mistaken for Hoegaarden.

Muted and delicate aromas of soft wheat, mild honey, and light starch provide the basic underpinning while spicy aromas run the gamut of coriander, orange peel, perfume, white pepper, light clove, chi tea, lemongrass, and a sparse sprinkle of cumin. Somewhat estery as lemon and apple penetrate the mix for a very inviting and mouthwatering scent.

All those soft malts and decorated spices play delightfully on the palate in most refreshing and soothing flavor combinations. Soft wheat, honeyish caramel, floral flavors, and soft baking breads provide a creamy flavor of starch and powdered sugar that's soon rivaled by the spice and hop additions, led by coriander and curacao. Counterparts of citrusy hops with slight leafy action, lemongrass, and peppery bitterness rise in finish for a balanced and varying taste.

Light bodied throughout, but the early creaminess gives a slight impression of fuller-than-actual feel. The unique Belgianesque carbonation allows for a light prickle on the tongue and expansive airiness to emit. But the carbonation retracts at mid palate and ushers in the refreshing soft wheat and peppery bitterness to dry the beer and offer a semi-powdery finish with a linger of lemon pepper and minty alcohols.

The higher rate of strength exceeds the usual 5% that's exhibited by usual witbiers, but nothing is lost here: Not only does Mikkeller retain the soft supple character that makes standard witbiers so refreshing, but does so with higher hopping rates of American varieties and more experimentation with spice to accompany the assertive alcohol, and without compromising its balance- no easy feat.

330ml bottle. Poured a crisp golden colour, retains quite a haze, with some very nice white head retention and lacing.

Smell has lemon, dry orange, and firm yeast, some definite earthiness, nuts come through and dusty barn floor.

Taste is very fresh, fragrant florals and firm lemon orange citrus bitterness, a solid yeast presence, all very nicely balanced with some of the coriander bringing some solid earthy body. Lemongrass and firm apple. Very tasty.

The higher abv works excellently, not perceptible but lends a fuller feel to this beer with the yeasty creaminess, carbonation is moderate and the beer works very nicely on the palate.

A very nice and interesting wit style. I would definitely have it again. The spices are nicely incorporated and not hidden but add significant depth and complexity to this beer. Not the best beer from Mikkeller but a very nice expression of the wit style and the potential there. Try it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy gold with a puffy, creamy whitish head that takes some time to settle. Head retention is great. A moderate amount of whitish lace is present on the sides of the glass.

S: Aromas of fresh herbs, grass, lemon, lime, kumquat, bitter orange, vanilla, wheat bread, spices, and cream are present on the nose.

T: Floral, fruity notes of herbs, grass, coriander, lemon, lime, bitter orange, kumquat, tangerine, and wildflower honey are balanced by notes of cream, vanilla, wheat bread, caramel, and biscuit. The finish is spicy and hoppy with pronounced notes of coriander, lemon, lime, tangerine, kumquat, and herbs.

M: On the lighter side of medium in terms of body, this ale is a bit sappy and sticky in the mouth. Carbonation is delicate, but just firm enough to support the body. Alcohol warmth briefly manifests on the finish, but is decidedly mellow and unobtrusive. Easy to drink for a beer of 8% abv.

O: This is a nicely executed double wit. The heavy hopping gives it a spunky, prickly character. If you are a fan of strong ales at all, then this a beer that is very much worth trying. It definitely is not just another run of the mill witbier and it isn't some half-baked attempt at a double wit either. Very unique.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a little on the dark side...more along the lines of Weissebier, but good none the less. The head was massive, white and retention was stellar. Naturally, lacing was triumphant. What sets this Wit apart from the rest (from my experience), is the wondrously floral hop nose. There's also some light spiciness and herbal notes, along with some bready malt characters. The taste consists of more bready malts, equal parts spicy, earth notes, and less on the hoppy side...still nice either way. With a slightly more slick and heavy feeling for a Wit, it definitely leaves a hair more to be desired in the mouthfeel, but nothing off-putting at all, though a lighter, crisper feel would be king. In the end, a great interpretation of the style and a great beer. Mikkeller (recently at least), has been impressing me.

Sampled on 7-1-10
Bottled in 2008

Pours a hazy golden color, with lines of bubbles rising to the surface. A thick white head sits on top, and lasts forever.

Smell is all sweet malt, aromas of banana and Belgian yeast. The hops come in second, adding a tart citrus edge. Very nicely aged, with just a hint of mellowing hops.

Taste is all hops, sharp and tart. Flavors of citrus and a light maltiness are there too, giving way to a pleasant bitterness and a slightly bready aftertaste. Good, but not as deep as I was hoping.

Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy, with good carbonation to add to the hoppy kick.

Drinkability is very good, the bitterness balances the sweetness nicely, and the abv is just right.

Overall, not an extreme beer, but still well made and worth trying.

Pours hazy golden in color with a big 2 finger fluffy white head. Head has great retention and leaves a fair amount of lacing around the glass

Smell has some lemon rind like fruity esters forward wild some mild hints of Vinegar. There is a nice mild sweet grainy malt aromas before a few spices come in on the back end.

Taste has some Belgian spicy phenols forward, mainly coriander and peppercorn. Some light lemon esters are also present however Not a whole lot of vinegar or sour shows up relative to the aroma. This keeps it mild and drinkable. Some nice grainy and straw like malt come through midway through the sip before a mild hop bitterness and more lemon rind on the exhale.

Mouthfeel is good, moderate carbonation with a sticky feel keeps this nice and fizzy but soft due to the sticky body. Not a whole lot of hop bitterness but there is a good spicy dry Belgian finish.

750mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with tons of bubbles coming to the top and feeding a big fluffy white head. The head stays as a cap for quite a while and leaves very good lacing.

The aroma was heavier on the citrus than most wits I've had. There was some wheat sweetness but more subdued and maybe hints of spice. Overall, very lemony.

Lemony hops dominate the first portion of the taste as well. There is a definite wheat presence in the middle with faint banana sweetness. The alcohol makes its presence felt in the finish with less spices than the nose suggests. Overall, lots of citrus from start to finish.

This mouthfeel is massively carbonated and prickly though still smooth overall. A very original and enjoyable wit.

Appearance: Poured into a tulip glass, poured nice orange murky color. Thick white head, with a lot of lacing all the way down.
Smell: The first thing I picked up was a heavy orange and citrus smell. Also a hint of coriander and other floral aromas.
Taste: Bitter at first due to the citrus, mellows out and finishes well. Left an acidic after taste
Mouth Feel: Medium body with just enough carbonation, very smooth though.
Drinkability: Very unique Wit beer,(hence the name) Price is a bit high, but is a good beer to share with friends.

Overall I really enjoyed this beer, something I'd definitely drink again!

Another wrapped and caged gem from mikellar that I had the privilege of being able to try. This one I brought over as I thought it might go quite well with dinner. Served cold and poured into a few tasting glasses along the way, this one was consumed on 10/05/2009.
 
The pour was just as I would have wanted. Light golden amber in color with a nice foamy head of white on top. Rich lacing that just drips down the side of the glass and really coating the entire interior making it almost totally clouded over. Aroma is light, bready malts, hints of light citrus and a touch of spice coming through on the nose right away. Nice balance here as it is no where near to heavy. Light fruit notes now coming forward, peaches maybe, a touch of some light grain as well. Nice clean flavor, does not last long on the tongue, nor is it too terribly heavy. I would have to say it comes off just about right. Nice dry finish with a quick hit of hops and a light tart grape skin like flavor that melts back as quick as it started.
 
Overall pretty darn solid. Not really sure what to make of the style, but I have to admit it was pretty good. Would not mind trying this one again any day.

4.18/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A pour that begins as a thin, bright gold quickly develops into a rich, clouded honey in the glass. Out of the bottle, it easily yields a two finger head, which holds together in beautiful clumps before reducing to a one finger head with great retention and initial lacing. The beer keeps a very subtle effervescence underneath, lending a depth to the otherwise cloudy appearance.

A quick sniff turns up a light zest of orange and lemon with a hint of light spice, cardamom and coriander noticeable. A pleasant tartness is all that remains of the promised 8% ABV.

The taste of this one is a pleasantly sugary sweetness up front, followed by the zesty fruit from the scent dancing on the tongue. The finish is crisp and dry, but manages to linger. This is a full, balanced witbier, heavier than many of its counterparts. The spice is just enough, more complex than the coriander and cardamom I mentioned but subtle enough not to pinpoint specifics. The fruit flavors don't overpower at all. The body of the flavor is a mild sourness, reminiscent of a pleasant, summery farmhouse ale. While it could be seen as a departure from style, this, to me, is what a wit is all about. A hint of fresh fruit, delicately spiced, pleasantly carbonated, crisply refreshing. All this while being a full, rounded beer, rather than the typical refreshers such as a hefe or kolsch.

Mouthfeel is equally full and round, the otherwise maltiness balanced out by the carbonation.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this beer. As I mentioned, it's an exemplar of what I personally look for in this style. It's a real pleasure to drink. It hits the heavier qualities, including it's 8% ABV, while managing to be a very refreshing drink that's hard not to gulp. The main deterrent from mad quaffing is, as it should be, the simple but evidently delicate fruit and spice profile.

This is one of those brews that has been sitting in my collection for a little bit and now suddenly feel the urge to have it tonight, anyways it pours a hazy,orange very light amber colour with a nice frothy two finger head that stays,the aroma is very hoppy indeed with a nice passionfruit,stonefruit aroma coming thru followed up by some citrus and feint wheat aromas aswell quite an inviting aroma,it has a nice easy mouthfeel which isnt thick nor thin and the stonefruit flavours are the first i taste on the palette followed by some orange rind and lime with a hoppy wheat finish and to be honest this is definately on the verge of being in its own category of beer altogether,quite an outstanding drop that will buy again for sure.

Wow. This is was an interesting interpretation of the style. Lot of Amarillo hop flavor blending quite well with some of the traditional witbier spices (orange peel and coriander.) Quite a bit darker, perhaps deep gold as opposed to the straw color of traditional wit. Plenty of carbonation made for a persistent foamy head and creamy mouthfeel. A very sunny beer with bright, assertive spice and hop flavors letting the unmalted wheat and oats provide a soft landing for all the other bold flavors in this brew. Stronger than I think it needs to be, but a very tasty beer.

750ml bottle

A- Bottle poured into a large Duvel tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a large off-white head that leaves a good amount of lace around the glass and sticks around with some great retention.

S- The aroma is a little on the faint side but very complex for a Witbier with a lot going on. There is a lot of citrus (orange and lemon peel) along with a good amount of spices and fruit.

T- The taste like the aroma is very complex and features a lot of citrus and spices with some spicy hops in the finish creating a nice spicy and citric hop finish. There's a lot of citrus going on in the taste, I pick up on a lot of orange peel and maybe even some grapefruit. The grapefruit flavors are unique, as they are not the typical grapefruit flavors you pick up in a lot of American IPAs from the hops. It is more of a natural bitter grapefruit flavor that would come from fresh squeezed juice.

M- The mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

D- Not Just Another Wit is just what the title suggests... it definitely is not your average Wit. Despite the higher ABV, this beer is still pretty damn drinkable. Highly Recommended.

The beer pours a hazy honey gold color with very good head retention and lots of sticky lacing all around. This beer looks quite nice. The nose on this beer is equally enticing, showing off nuances of honey, lemon-lime, cherry and peppery citrus. The flavors on the palate generally replicate the nose, and I must say this beer has quite a lot of flavor for a wit beer. Something else I quite like is how the beer starts off fairly sweet, but finishes with a dry, hoppy bite. Very, very impressive. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most and the alcohol is very well disguised. This beer is entirely too easy to drink for a beer with 8% alcohol.

Another excellent effort from the folks at Mikkeller

Bought a 1 PT 9.4 FL OZ bottle of this from Flamingo Bowl in St. Louis, MO for $17. Poured from the Corked/Cagged w/ Black Styrofoam wrap around this, Black Labeled w/ Yellow Piano Keyed bottle into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Does not have a freshness date on the bottle.

Aroma- Has a nice wheaty and light spicy aroma from the beginning. The end of the smell has nice sour/acidic aromas that blend in well. Herbal/floral hops are hanging out throughout the aroma also. Very nice!

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger, frothy head that has above average retention time. Has a deep orange, cloudy body and leaves VERY thick lacing behind.

Flavor- The flavor starts with a ton of citrus and light spice that lingers into a great sweetness (coming from malt?). Has a light tart finish and very light bitterness from hop if anything.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Creamy, EFFERVESCENT, and has nice citrus finish with tons of sweetness again.

Overall Impression- While having many brews from Mikkeller, most of them are a collaboration (BrewDog, FFF, Struise, etc.) and was very happy with this one! Light spices are hanging around this Wit and had a fantastic Effervescent characteristic that is great to find in this style! I would suggest this brew for anyone wanting a refreshing Wit but would til it was around $10-12... A bit overpriced.

A - Hazy golden orange with a thick, chunky white head. Excellent retention and big chunks of foam left on the glass.

S - A very intriguing nose for a Wit. Lots of orange and lemon in the nose with the faintest hint of spice underneath. Not a usual wit aroma at all.

T - Rather tart initially before a big blast of ornage peel and lemon come in. A faint wheat chewiness underneath with a little bit of the usual banana taste as wel. A very hop forward Wit and very enjoyable.

M/D - Medium bodied and very chewy. Well carbonated as well. A very interesting brew to say the least.
