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

On-tap at the Mikkeller pub in Copenhagen.

Pours a very hazy lemon-yellow color with a 1.5-finger bright white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of light malts and wheat with large amounts of lemon peel and floral hops.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Light malt flavors with good amounts of wheat twang kick things off. Mild lemon and orange rind flavors come into play shortly thereafter. Light nondescript spices make an appearance midway through the sip, carrying through to a crisp ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is also very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this was an easy-drinking beer with loads of flavor. Well worth a shot.

Served on-draught into 20cl Mikkeller stemware at the Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen. Note that their blackboard said it was 4.6%. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of fair cream, fair thickness, and average retention. Colour is a cloudy yellow.

Sm: Lemon esters, cream, assorted citrus esters, and full barley. No malt, thankfully.

T: Heavy orange peel, some lemon - actually citrusy - notes, refreshing cream, and a pleasant barley foundation. Complex for the style. Well built and balanced.

Mf: Coarse, sharp, and wet. Enough smoothness to stay refreshing, however. Complementary of the flavour for the most part.

Dr: Average ABV and great drinkability, but it comes at a high price (25 DKK for 20cl).

Pours a very pale straw colour with light haze. Head is a whispy cloud of white bubbles. Thin lace. Looks thin but OK.

Smell is nearly all hops. Hint of candied orange peel with some tangy wheat but mostly citric, with mildly resinous hoppiness. Wood, sap and lemon zest. Quite enjoyable.

Taste is fruity, light and pleasant; and yet complex. Orange/lemon compete on the front, with some tart wheat notes and light vinous character drying up. Touch of sweet white wine and then finish is all hops but lightly so, they just pop up at the end to cleanse with floral citric bitterness. No hang. Light, but very enjoyable.

Light, uninteresting body. Doesn't need much since the flavour is all there, but really there's not much at all.

Good wit, good beer.

On-tap at the Local Taphouse in Sydney's Mikkeller Tap Takeover.

Pours very clear, and quite dark for a wit, with very minimal head, just a ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Body looks very light, but it holds what little carbonation is there very heavily contained in the body. Looks pretty poor, to be honest.

Nose is an entirely different story, and a rather bizarre experience. Ripping sharp fruit character right from the start, with preserved lemon and green peach coming through strongly. Quite floral, sharp and rather sweet. It smells like wandering through the tropical fruit section of the market.

Taste is clear and crisp, with a good dose of that sharp fruitiness through the centre. Body is certainly lacking, and there's not enough to support very much, but the fragrance of the peach and lemon comes through nicely enough.

Very decent beer. Very light and refreshing, with some fragrant characters that don't overwhelm the palate. Not bad.

I drank this at Mikkeller in Copenhagen. This like the Vesterbro Pilsner are ONLY available at the brew pub, named after the local Copenhangen neighborhood that it is located in...The ber pours a medium gold with a light white head, good retention and lacing...The aroma is super light and fresh grass, fresh hops, its really clean and new. Makes you want to drink this on a summer day...The taste is a little of a let down, flat pretty much until the end when some floral hops finally arrive, not super crisp as I was hoping for...Good feel and easy to drink.

If your at Mikkeller give it a shot as its a rare one. A pretty good summer beer needs a little more taste and a touch crisper and this would be awesome.
