    This is Mikkeller’s attempt at a ‘more extreme’ witbier, with more hops and spices than usual. This is brewed at De Proef Brouwerij (Belgium), is hopped with Goldings, Amarillo, Saaz and Cascade, and spiced with coriander and orange peel.

    The beer has a yellow-golden color, and is hazy. The beer has a slight white colored head, that leaves some traces of lacing along the glass.
    Smellwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
    The beer's aroma is dominated by spicy belgian-style yeast and citrus (orange and grapefruits) tones.

    The flavour begins with some light sweetness, and is then joined by the spicy tones already encountered in the aroma. There are hints of coriander, cloves, orange, lemon and grapefruit. The taste ends with a slight bitter aftertaste, a quite dry finish and a tiny presence of alcohol. An interesting witbier, but nothing very overwhelming.

    The beer is smooth, with a medium-light body and moderate carbonation level. The drinkability is good, and the beer is quite well balanced.

    A better-than-average witbier, with some nice strong flavours. I find the beer a bit too expensive to really recommend it, but it is worth a taste. A refreshing beer to have in the warm weather. I didn't find the 'extra' hoppiness too dominant, but there are definitely hop tones present.
