Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Storm. Opaque yellow with a white head. Very fresh Bretty aroma combined with a little citrus. Light body with dry citric notes combined with tropical fruits and a light edge of wood. Dry, Bretty and sulphurous with a vague underlying sweetness. Very refreshing - like a modern take on Orval! 311211

Bottle in hotel room before flying out to Genoa. Hazy pale gold beer. Tidy, but short lived bubbly white head. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Light seltzer minerals. Light brett and wine flavours. Semi dry finish. Not getting any spice except a trace of white pepper. A light and easy going beer, unusual and very drinkable.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
This literally poured a straight white color, just barely light yellow with a white head. Aroma was lots and lots of brett, some funky, and rotten egg too. Flavor was good bit of funk and brett, lots of cheese taste, though not really tart at all. Not much of the wit beer remains underneath but still an interesting brew.

pours a clear and light yellow color. Poured from 750 into a hefewizen glass with a small head that goes away fast great aromas of funk, lemons, varied citrus’, and some bits of grassy/wheaty tones. It certainly shows the brett influence on the nose and while it’s a bit conflicted due to the style, it’s one that I enjoy lighter bodied with a very nice feel. Lacking some depth, but very fresh with flavors of lemon zest, fresh citrus fruits an extremely good wit. The brett on this does make it different. Since I generally love sour characteristics, it’s fine by me, but this may not work for a lot of people. That said, this is and has been enjoyable with a real refreshing style

cheap (4014) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Had this at the 2011 Pittsburgh Ratebeer Christmas Eve Eve Tasting. Big thanks to Lithy for this rocking beer. Very nice fresh beery white beer aroma with a hint of citrus. Poured from a bomber. The presentation in the glass is very attractive; looks very bubbly and fun. First taste impression is that this is a good friendly beer, some tartness in there. Just enough bitterness to let you know this is beer but it never tries to go over the top. Simply a really good beer tasting experience. THANKS JUSTIN!

Rating #100 for this beer. Bottle from a trade with dmac. Pours cloudy straw color with white head. Aromas of wheat, corriander, vanilla, oak and brett. Tastes like a wibier up front and finished with oak, vanilla, brett and a hint od wine. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. A strange beer, but the more I drank, the more I enjoyed it. Thanks Dave.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2011
Bottled. A yellow beer with no head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, lemons, straw, and wheat. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of lemons, brettanomyces, straw, and wheat, leadingto a dry brett’y finish.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2011
transparent gold with thin white head, Chardonnay heavy nose, Brett heavy, eggy. Flavor is more chardonnay, light pineapple and wood mid palate, crisp citrus with light pepper and wheat grains in finish. Thin body, sticky with light carbonation, astringent and singular, masking base badly.
