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.

mansquito (4661) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours hazy wellow with a white head. The brett is subtle in the aroma and in the taste, at least as compared to many other brett beers. Aroma is spices, coriander especially, light lemony citrus, and tree. Taste is lightly bitter with all them apicy notes. Some light pepper and low sweetness. Pretty good. Subtle. To the uninitiated, I am tempted to say they would be hard-pressed to see how different this actually is.

beernbourbon (1452) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2015
June 2015 bottle. Pour is light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is lightly Funky and lightly bretty with some plastic notes and a touch of citrus. Flavor is spicy and bretty up front with some black pepper notes and light citrus. Nose and flavor pretty much match up. Clean. Long, dry, spicy finish.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is sour brett, lemon, coriander. Taste is moderate to heavily sour tart with flavors of citrus fruit, a little wine grape, grass, yeast. Pretty good for a sour wit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ffbot (175) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Pour was a hazy unfiltered dark purple coloring, big tan head that retained. Smell of citrus, lemon peel, peppery and earthy, big yeasty smell. Taste follows: citrus is subdued but comes barking back at the finish. Big sour and bitter clash, a long bitter after taste. Dry, leathery finish.

JDBaker11058 (1696) - Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2015
appearance: cloudy bright gold, short fizzy white head, quickly vanishes to a soapy ring. aroma: some toasted white bread, a bit of white wine, coriander, citrus, general funk. taste: taste is typical wit, undercut by an extensive, exhausting sharpness from the brett. finish: lingering plasticky sharpness, nearly mineral. notes: Really, really wanted to like this. Felt like someone took a wit and just overwhelmed it with brett. Maybe my taste buds were just off, because everyone else seems to like it, and it sounded right up my alley. Bottle from Sarah for Annibeersary 2015 via Craft Beer Kings.

(750ml bottle thanks to Adam C) cloudy medium gold yellow, no real head after pouring and settling. Nose of chardonnay, brett, tart, lemon, coriander, mild bugs, touch of oak, complex and delicious. Taste of lemon peel, brett, a little dry, chardonnay, oak, light sour bugs, an exceptional witbier. Medium carbonation, somewhat soda-like.
