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.

Bottle: Batch #1, bottled May 2011, enjoyed late March 2012. Pours a clear greenish yellow with a white head that stays around for a while, then fades completely. Aroma is brett and lacto sourness, buttery oak, coriander, green apple, sour pear. Taste is all of the above bathed in buttery oak overtones. Body is medium, silky, frothy, long dry buttery finish. Overall, refreshing and delightful.

Defreni (2775) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Flaske: Lysegul øl diset med et lille skumhoved. Havde lignet en klassisk wit hvis der havde været et skumhoved. Duften er meget frugtet fra brett, men er samtidig en tand off. Lover ikke godt for smagen. Men der tager jeg heldigvis helt fejl. Super lækker kompleks smag, hvor både sorachi humlen, bretten og fadlagringen på chardonnay kommer til sin ret. Der er simpelthen smag fra det hele uden at det clasher. Eneste problem er at det bliver en tand saftevandsagtig, men på den gode måde. Er sgu helt pjattet med Anchorage og deres over the top syn på at lave øl.

gator2683 (199) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Very good. Clear gold with a bright white head. Light floral hops aroma. The flavor is crisp and dry with plenty of brett and funk. Not much wheat for a wit but I don’t mind. A nice session beer if you can afford it

From a bottle poured a straw color with a small amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a quick finish.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a nice white head and fizzy carbonation throughout the glass. Smell yields barnyard funk initially that quickly gives way to dry citrus, some light floral notes, subtle oak/woodsy notes, some residual sugary elements. Tastes of coriander, dry wheat, mild citrus, some oaky vanilla, some peppery splashes. Sophisticated with a reserved breaddy finish.

Christian (11656) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2012
Pale golden with a disappearing white head. Aroma of brett funk and white wine, with notable orange peel and a touch of banana. Sweet fruity flavour with a refreshing tartness kicking in. Coriander is noticed in the finish

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Nose is nice and funky, definite oak chardonay barrel notes, light wit, some lemon, barnyard. Interesting aromas on this one for sure. Very unique. Pours hazy golden yellow, nice fizzy white head and solid sheets of lace. Wit base beer notes, some chardonay citrus fruits, funky brett barnyard, some coconut here and there. Interesting take on a wit. Well carbonated. Light and fruity. Solid.

bvc (1180) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bright lightly hazed straw yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Punky oak, funky barnyard doo-doo, lemon, vinous white grapes, light clove and belgian ester undertones. Light refreshing body with effervescent carbonation. Funky tart lemon, white grape, dry throughout, bit of oak, mellow whit spiciness yeast. Light, funky, refreshing...great barrel aged variation of a whit.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Really really good and really unique. Nose is super bright...lemon, citrus, some wheat and yeast. Palate continues that lemon and citrus but then you get the bottle conditioned yeast, some grass and a lot of light dancing carbonation and the dry oakiness of the barrel aging. Super drinkable yet super full of flavor. The finish is very dry and oaky. Really interesting great beer.
