COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a variation on the classic Belgian Witbier style, but aged in French Oak Chardonnay barrels

Brewed with lemon peel, black peppercorns and corriander (sic).
Triple fermented - first in the tank with Belgian yeast, second in french oak Chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces, and finally in the bottle with a third yeast for natural carbonation.

Lilja (1855) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2015
Flaska från Demolen. Smak och doft av vita druvor, jäst, äpple, fat, vete, trä, citrus, koriander med toner av örter och apelsin. Känsla av vitt vin. Frisk och syrlig, lagom sötma, en aning kryddig i efterbeskan. Väldigt gott!

Vignale (2281) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2015
Flaska från Demolen. Gyllengul, lätt disig med ett högt vitt skum, liknar champagne. Doft av vita druvor, jäst, fat, vetesyra, citrus, koriander. Frisk, krispig, kryddig med en lite fet munkänsla. Fina chardonnay-smaker som ger djup och extra dimension till smaken, fat, kryddor, peppar, vete, jäst. Frisk, gott och flerdimensionellt komplext och riktigt gott.

drowland (6517) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2015
750mL bottle, June 2014. Awesome aroma - Brett, tartness, vinous, citrus, fruity, lots of awesome. Nice orange pour with a good off-white head, nice lacing. Okay flavor, disappointing given the aroma I was digging. A bit sweeter, more orange and spice, less tart presence than I was expecting, doughy. Not bad.

shrubber85 (8235) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Barnyard, pepper, coriander, and lemon malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet tart lemon malt, white wine, and brett flavor. Okay - brett dominates.

ryecatcher (879) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2015
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale yellow-gold, smallish to nonexistent head but quite carbonated (looks more like champagne than beer). Nose is funk dominated, some mineral notes, grass, musty barrel, sulfur, lemons. Mouth is dry and funky, bretty, mildly bitter, tart, green apples, key limes, hay, chardonnay, oak, white pepper. The Brett makes this more like a sour than a Wit. I also drank this really cold, so not sure what was lost due to the temp, but I quite enjoyed it all the same. I wish Anchorage beers weren’t so erratic so far as distribution goes... one of my favorite brewers, but a rarity to find on Binny’s shelves.

Excellent delicate beer. Straw colored with big white head and excellent retention. Brett, citrus, funk, lemongrass in the aroma. Taste had more of a yeasty-peppery saison body than a wit beer. The brett was huge all over it. Lemon and oak were abound as well. Nice light body. Really enjoyed this one.
