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.

Clear whitish yellow, white puffy color. Aroma is all oaky, some bretty. Taste is a bit odd, some lavender, oak, white wine, but a bit musty or cheesy. I dunno, I don’t get much witbier character here.

tastybeer (1718) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle, courtesy GT2, thank you! Pour is hazy white/gold with a nice white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of chardonnay, oak, fruity esters, citrus, lemon, dust. Taste is quite dry, lightly bitter, tropical notes (pineapple, pear), vanilla, oak. Palate is soft, crisp, very dry. Drank this with BA stateside, both were excellent and very comparable.

jsquire (3443) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Lemonaide colored beer with a big white fizzy head. Light funky nose with some citrus peel and wet blanket. There is an old grapefruit rind tartness with some spice, bitter orange juice and funk. The flavors seem a bit harsh. I blame the wine barrels. It is a bold Belgian wit, I’ll give it that.
