Cooperii (61) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle poured a hazy yellow with a huge white head that slowly, very slowly settled to about one inch, lacing is not worth assessing. Aromas are a light fruityness with some spice and funky odors (reminds me of a toilet with urine in it that hasn’t been flushed for a few days). Flavors are light and funky, bitter, dry and slightly sour. The Finish...I dont think I can....dry, clean with a lingering bite on the toung.

piscator34 (1997) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottled sample. Pale yellow in colour with loads of spritzy carbonation. Really funky on the nose, backed by elements of lemon pie and nettles. The brett dominates the palate with notes of black pepper, kitchen herbs, and Orangesicle. A strange and complex beer which is fun to drink, Not really an IPA or a wit though.

hawthorne00 (2554) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle, 10C. Pale orange with a large white head that settles to an inch or so. Zinging brett aroma with white pepper, lemons, orange zest, passionfruit and coriander seeds. Pungent, but there’s intrigue there. Taste has sweet oranges, some bretty funkiness, a fair bit of bitterness, spices - doesn’t hang together as well as the aroma. Dry and spicy at the end.

BeerBaboon (1615) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Pours cloudy gold with plenty of pretty, white head. The beer has a funky, earthly, sour aroma of bretta, fruits, coriander, barnyard and citrus. Flavour is bitter, dry and even sour. There’s bretta, citrus, orange peel and again plenty of coriander. This beer nicely combines some elements of witbier, tripel, IPA and wine.

JorisPPattyn (8041) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2012
Towering, just yellowish dense head over hazy, pale straw-coloured beer. Nice mix of fresh, lemony citrus and Bretts (one of the Wyeastlabs varieties). Bathroom herbs, lavender, lemonthyme or -balm, rosemary, coriander. Sharp bitterish citruspeel flavour, mixed with Brettflavour that suggests some mild oxydation (nowhere disturbing). Again spiciness with rosemary, lemonbalm, pepper-y. There’s another well-known herb there I cannot lay my finger on. Very refreshing, spritzy carbonation; light body with full attenuation. Nice, and pretty original too. Not very "wit" and even less IPA, however, in my book. And do they really drink this in Alaska???

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Nice fluffy pure white head on a light hast bright lemon yellow. Melon rind, Passion fruit, lemon and citrus zest, and some funkiness in the aroma. Woody, slight pine, the kumquat comes in a bit, zesty citrus, slight moldy funk. Lighter to medium dry body. Delicious

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Ours bright pale yellow with a thick pillowy white head that hangs around for a long time with excellent lacing. The nose screams hoppy wit or saison, doesn't resemble an IPA at all but still I'm intrigued by the spiciness, the lemon, coriander and citrus that merry well with the banana and cloves. Taste is a complex wave of bitter and sweet with an underlying tartness throughout. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light to medium body and a never ending finish. This beer is top notch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Now that I’ve calmed down after the cork nearly took my head off: Hazy yellow with a lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is dominated by brett with notes of staple, leather, citrus, hay, grass and hops in the background. Taste is soft with medium carbonation. Notes of wood, leather, cigar, horsie, wheat and some spices in the crisp finish. I wonder how many I could drink of these. This Anchorage stuff goes down like Titanic.
