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.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus peel, coriander, white wine and oak. Flavour of white wine, slight sourness from the wine, oak barrels, coriander, citrus peel and a lemon tang. Quite flavourful for the style, though not terribly exciting.

jgb9348 (5555) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2012
Great super hazy golden blonde coloured body with a dense, thick white head. Aroma of yeast, gueuze, sour grapes, cherries, oak and a pleasant amount of coriander seed and curacao. Light-bodied; Slightly sour flavour at first reminds of a gueuze, then shows a lot of light wheat and yeast flavours, some light spices and a touch of the dry tastes. Aftertaste is nice and complex with the majority of flavours in the wheat and yeast ranges with a touch of alcohol noticeable and some light spices as well. Overall, a very nice wit, with tons of good flavours and a subtle complexity that finishes this off very nicely. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, Alaska on 23-June-2011, sampled at home in Washington on 29-April-2012, even though I’ve seen it for sale on this side of the USA, a very nice beer to bring back across the whole of America.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle with friends. Pours a hazy straw yellow with plenty of head. Aroma is amazing. Tart funkiness, lots of horsey brett, with some definite fruitiness. Taste is bone dry, very tart, and really nice and funky. you can almost taste the chardonnay coming through. It’s impossible to compare this to other wits since it’s so different. Really fantastic.

PhillyCraft (5486) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle split with James, Tony, Pat, Tom, and Dallas, compliments of Dallas. Pours a murky piss color with large white head, lots of tiny bubbles. Aromas of ultra tart funk, barn, coriander, oranges, lemon leather. Taste was a fresh watery gueze with fruits and wood. Refreshing and not overtop sour. Awesome combination

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 27, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a large fizzy white head and lots of carbonation bubbles streaming to the surface. Very pleasant aroma of brett funk that does not overwhelm the beer. There is some oak in the nose as well. The flavor is brett funk, but again, the funkiness does not overwhelm the rest of the beer and is well proportioned in the flavor profile. Oak, grape, and a touch of wheat present as well. Excellent!

DalzAle (2020) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle shared by Kevin. Clear yellow pour, lasting carbonation and a nice slightly sweet aroma. Flavor is effervescent white grapes, pears and a little dry and oaky on the aftertaste. Very nice, would definitely buy this.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This beer is crazy. Typical wheat beer pour with a nice, long lasting white head on top. Lacing clings to the sides of the glass. The nose is very odd. It smells sweet and sour. The brett is very noticable and I seem to get a buttery note coming off it. Heaps of lemon and orange zest come out with a nice balance of spices as well. Taste is all spice at first. Strong finish of brett. As it warms, more zest comes out and it becomes a little buttery. Odd. Almost a chardonnay with all that butter and citrus. Crazy beer

MadIndian (2720) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2012
Another solid brew from this company. What stood out for me was the white grape, oak and wheat blend. Odd, but interesting. I love that this company uses oak barrels. Barrel aged is the best.

Marheb (4564) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
L’arôme habituelle de funk Anchorage accompagné de zest de citron et d’un peu de gingembre. En bouche, la vanille explose de façon inattendu avec des notes de vin blanc boisé bien enrobante. À chaque essai, mes genoux plis un peu plus devant cette brasserie aux talents multiples.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2012
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.
