750ml bottle from New Beer shared with James, Streets and Andy. Hazy, yellow-green pour with soapy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is lemon zest, yeast, and funk. Taste is very funky - almost a saison. Not tart, but a little sugary. High carbonation. I like.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on 10/15/2011. This witbier pours a slightly hazy light yellow color from a 22oz corked and caged bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is cereal, spicy, fruity, yeasty and sweet. A medium bodied wit. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and floral. Lively carbonation. A touch of yeast and nice spicy throughout. A touch of brett and some funk as well. Finish is extremely dry after starting out on the sweet side. Excellent wit. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled sample shared with oakbluff. Yellow in colour with a bit of haze and medium carbonation. The bretty funk hits the nose immediately, followed up by some flaked wheat and a faint floral note. The brett character dominates in the mouth as well, but is backed by some herbal notes, lemon peel, and chardonnay barrel. Moderate bodied with a snappy finish. Reminds me a bit of Russian Riverís Temptation, but with some mild spices added and minus the sourness from the lacto and pedio. Very interesting and very tasty, and unlike any witbier Iíve ever tried.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a very pale slightly yellow color with a medium-large foamy white head. Aroma is very funky and tart with lots of yeast and lemons. Definitely doesnít smell like any other Witbier Iíve had. Taste is slightly creamy with lemons and wheat. Taste also has more tartness with some cheese in the finish. The combination of flavors is really interesting, and definitely not like anything Iíve had before. Aftertaste is mostly cheese with some rotten eggs. Overall very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a clear straw color with a medium white head. The aroma is sour fresh lemons, some oak. The flavor is a very smooth slightly tart beer with loads of lemons, some phenolic notes, almost like a Berliner Weiss, very smooth. Tasty.
