AirForceHops (3771) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2015
375 bottle spilt by Willrunforbeer. 2013 Batch 2. Hazy gold, no head. Aroma has a great citrus character with a mild funky yeast. Flavor has citrus though out the sip with a nice level of tartness. Not sour, tart. Has a citrus rind bitterness that also help balance the tartness. Damn, really well balanced! The finish is dry with a refreshing crispness. I could sip this for an extended length of time.

Bottle shared by a friend. Opaque yellow color with a fuzzy white head. Aroma of Froot Loops, orange and wheat. Orange flavor with creamy wheat before a sour finish.

vyvvy (4396) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours hazy yellow / orange with a modest sized white head. The aroma comes off more lambic-like than witbier. There is modest tartness, oak, funk, citrus, cheese zest, spices and an underlying richness. Very nice and inviting. It has a light crisp super snappy body with a touch of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with sharp citrus, funk, cheese, peppery spice, cinnamon, oak and it even seems like the blood orange flavor comes up front. The finish is very dry with the spice and citrus taking center and just enough malt and oak to keep it in check. Excellent beer.

Mep3222 (652) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Aroma of lactic sour, some funk, and lemony orange citrus. Taste is the same. Prob 50/50 lactic sour to funky sour. Has a bit more earth was than I like in a sour, but still pretty nice. Maybe 4 of 10 sour. Citrus flavors come through pretty strong. Finish has an odd bitterness of earthy funk. Not my favorite sour from crooked stave, but still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t know how this is a witbier but who cares I guess. It’s damn tasty. Pours a dark dusky yellow. Aromas are stable, white wine, lemon, vinegar. Great sour flavors. A great option for summer time sipping. Lots of bright citrus flavors, funk, white wine. Great!

375ml bottle at home. Clear golden color at the beginning, hazy when I poured the rest of it from the bottle, with white head. Aroma is funky dusty bretty, citrusy fruity, orange. Taste is light sweet, sour and bitter. funky and fruity, sour-acidic juicy red oranges.
