Light orange, a bit cloudy, with a thick foamy cap that quickly falls to a bubbly small cap in the middle leaving nice wavey lacing.
Pretty fragrant, with sweet lemon, oranges and a big bag of flowers, spices and herbs. Coriander, anise, white and black pepper, cardamom, faint nutmeg, ginger, vanilla, faint dill, lemongrass, candi sugar. White bread too.
Sweet juicy lemons and oranges in the start with the herbal part of the spices thrown at you, with coriander, citrus leaf, lemongrass, green cardamom, peppermint, even a bit of funk. Floral notes, a small soapy note, a bit of honey, orange peel, with bready malt settling down. Prickly side of the spices follows and dominates the end, along with a prolonged creamy wheat maltiness: black cardamom, Sichuan pepper, rooty ginger. But we're gonna use the word "spicy" again, referring to the hop finish, mildly bitter, noble, pilsenerish.
Medium bodied, low carbonation compensated by (you guessed it!) spiciness, quite smooth. A nice prickle in the aftertaste, sweet wheat malt, a bit of citrus and herbs.
A pumped up definition of a witbier, incredibly refreshing and filled with intense and complex flavors. It's a pity i didn't get to try it during the summer, it would have been more appropiate. But that's my problem, not Vesterbro's.

750ml bottle poured into pint glass 4/10/12

A pale orange with a shitload of sediment, looks thick and murky with plenty of bubbles moving everything around like a soupy snow globe. two fingers of foam holds on for a while ending up as a thick film with foam at the bottom of the glass leaving rings of the lace all the way down, perfect

S strong nose, floral notes some lavender perhaps, spiced and herbal, faint licorice/anise and root beer, yeasty and citric. There's lots going on with this one and I'm liking it

T a little mint of all things strikes me as odd but dose no harm, not as nice as the nose and missing a little of the complexity but still solid, very herbal and loads of spice, peppery but coriander and others are there to

M nearing full bodied and has almost a numbing effect on the lips, perhaps I'm allergic to something in here but whatever what can you do, the bubbles get the liquid everywhere bringing out the flavors, leaves a slick patch behind in the mouth

O very interesting stuff, from the dogs doing their business on the label to the liquid inside. Complex stuff that I managed to drink before I figured it out

Not your average Wit, complex spicing and lots going on in every area. I could drink another 750ml even on this chilly evening its working very well for me

750ml bottle, with one of the weirdest labels I have seen to date - a trio of mutts, in the process of, or pining to, let their bodily functions fly. The other half of the broad-ass label depicts a seemingly piss-submerged wide-eyed indeterminate being, as viewed in an aquarium by the curious masses. Man, I am indulging in the wrong drug, it would seem. Oh, and the name of this offering translates to 'Vesterbro Toilet Paper' - so what is up with this particular district of Copenhagen (I'm presuming) to engender such a lowbrow tribute?

This beer pours a hazy, black pepper-sediment-strewn medium golden amber hue, with three towering fingers of tight, foamy, creamy off-white head, which leaves a multivaried array of consistent webbed lace around the glass as it genially subsides.

It smells of mild grainy malt, relatively strong black pepper, coriander, and soft leafy, earthy hops. The taste is mostly more of the same - the subtle, unobtrusive pale grainy malt, spicy and still understated coriander, abetted by a waning ground black pepper spiciness, with some newfound perfumed essence. Some very soft leafy, earthy hops round things out, amidst a middling, very subtle, and merely trifling medicinal nature.

The bubbles are soft, yet supportive, and moderately engaging, the body an agreeably smooth medium weight, everything in just the right order. It finishes on the sweet side, the malt, spices, and heretofore understated fruit bearing heavily over a latent hop resistance.

A big-boy witbier, this much is certain - the expected constituent ingredients all loud and proud, but to an even higher than anticipated degree, all in. I'm left with the spice of the black pepper and the yeast, as the curtain closes on this one.
