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.

25.4 oz bottle, May 2011, batch #1. Clear olive yellow with a snowy white head. Nose is lemon, grass and vanilla yoghurt; yeah, it’s pretty funky, almost fishy. Medium body with lively, spritzy carb. Taste is lemon peel, chardonnay, a pinch of pepper with lingering coriander and green apple. Nice hybrid; i was hoping a bit crisper.

Bouteille de 750 ml. Arômes doux et complexes de vin blanc, de brettanomyces et d’agrumes. Robe blonde et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence assez active. Vraiment très délicate et raffinée en bouche, cette bière montre les caractéristiques attendues d’une wit (blé, agrumes) ainsi qu’une belle touche de vin blanc et de brettanomyces. Finale délicatement acide. Très belle texture nuageuse. Vraiment une belle création, dangereusement facile à boire.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, purchased at Hill Farmstead. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is lemon, oak, lightly buttery chardonnay notes, lots of pineapple brett. Nice, smooth flavor, some more lemon, pineapple, buttery oak. Not quite up to par with some of the others but still damn tasty.

Grovlam (4207) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Storm, thanks for a great New Years evening! Average creamy fin head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of Brett, citrus, leather, light grass with some fruit and malty feel to it as well. Some wood and light citrus fruity notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat oily texture. Moderated sweet and light bitter flavor with some acidic. Wood and light acidic finish with some fruity notes.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2012 Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a hazy yellow with lots of head. Smells funky; like baby shit. Tastes nothing like it smells (which is a good thing). Chardonnay. Nice on the palate. I don’t know if I can revisit this due to how offensive it smells.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Incredible aroma, absolutely a little wild, funky, tart, with discernable chardonnay. Lovely, lovely aroma, could smell this for hours. Flavor is a bit sour, spicy (pepper, clove, coriander) but not over the top. Pretty normal flavors for a wit but woody, thin, reedy. Easy to drink, maintains good carbonation almost until warm.

Wow this is one hell of a wit. Pours hazy straw color with a decent white head that slowly fades. Smells nice and funky with your other ordinary wit characters of coriander. Taste is good and clean with coriander notes and hints of funk and oak, I was hoping for it to have a little sourness to it but oh well its still fantastic.

Dogbrick (11470) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 06/07/2012. This beer is a slightly cloudy straw color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, oak and dank basement. Light to medium body with a slightly funky character and notes of wood, malt and citrus. The finish is semi-tart and medicinal with a ripe fruit aftertaste. I was excited to try this but ultimately doesn’t quite come together.

750mL bottle, no date for $14.99 from Olive Tree Market a few months back. Fairly clear pale straw with a 1 1/2 finger fizzy white head that didn’t stay around long. Definitely getting the buttery brett element up front with plenty of wheat backing. I’ve got some oak as well, but the brett seems to be masking what little coriander I do get. Lightly acidic lemon pulp and zest round out the aroma. The acidic pulp actually gets a fair amount stronger as it warms. The flavor does have a more lemony component, but with just a tinge of the acidity (not much compared to the warmed up aroma). Still has lots of brett, getting a bit barnyardy, but even more butteryness. Pretty low on the sweetness. Semi-dry finish, scant bitterness. Moderate prickly carbonation with a light body. Not too bad, but this is the one I liked the least from Anchorage, and would not buy again at 2/3 the price. I like this a bit less than the numbers show.
