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, 02/05/2012. Pours clear white gold, like white wine, one finger frothy head fades, but leaves some decent lacing around the edge of my glass. Nose carries brett, faint tart lemon, and oak, some subtle chardonnay sweetness floating on top. In the taste is wheat malts, brett funk, hint of tart citrus, dry chardonnay finish. Thin and dry, but carbonation adds depth. Everything balanced, restrained. Great light beer with lots of complexity, the funkiness almost has a lambic-like quality, reminds me of Zwanze 2011 in some ways.

Im not sure if I believed in the hype of this beer too much, but wasn’t as good as I hoped it would be. A little funk in the aroma that showed up big time in the flavor, and not like a Brett funk that I really enjoyed at a mderate level, but this was off putting funk that really took away from the overall quality of the beer. Brewers seem to be leaning away from the orange zest of a white ale’s yeasty flavor to more of a funky, almost lemon zest character. some people might like that, but not my favorite evolution.

750mL bottle, Batch 1. Poured lightly-cloudy, pale golden with a sticky white head and plenty of rising carbonation. The aroma was quite vibrant, with cherry skins, oak, and earthy spices present.. basically in that order.. a little lemon zest and vinegar rounded it out.. came across with a lot of lambic-like character.. a lot going on, and it smelled like it was going to be super refreshing. The flavor found tart, dry oak, white vinous notes, and prickly carbonation on the tip of the tongue.. champagne-like effervescence followed all the way through.. earthy notes, lemon meat, and wheat at the core.. lots of vinous notes and fruity Brett on the back-end.. finished dry and refreshing. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. great balance between the wit, the barrel, the Brett, and the spices.. this was well thought out, and almost perfectly executed!
