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.

Thanks craftycarl21! Clear yellow pour with a massive frothy white head. The nose is absolutely incredible. The brett character is some of the best I’ve ever encountered. Massive cheesecloth, pineapple, tropical fruits, white grape juice, and farmy funk. Cheesecake, juicy nectar fruits, eathen brett, and tropical fruits abound in the flavor. The palate is light, but extremely quaffable. Ample caressing and silken carbonation with a super dry yet somehow juicy finish.

(750ml bottles, batch 1) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of lemon peel, wheat, coriander, chardonnay, brett, and oak. Flavor of yeast, earth, wheat, lemon, florals, vanilla, and brett.

Pours very light gold with a medium head. A lot of sour citrus in the aroma, along with spice and some grassiness. Taste is not what I expected, but in a good way. Starts out light with some wood and finishes with wood, grass, and some sour flavor, but less than you’d expect from the aroma. Finish is light and very dry. Very drinkable, especially given the alcohol content.

Bottle; Pour is slightly murky light golden with a pillowy white head in this glass - light lacing is present here. The nose is quite musky - with lemon rinds, white pepper, and earth. The flavor profile provides a sweeter undertone - with more musky basement and hay (brett), lemons, white pepper, with some of the oaked elements peeking through near the finish - ending on the dry side - another nice, overpriced anchorage brew, by my estimation

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a straw color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of mustiness, funky, spices, and oak. Tastes of bread, lighter funk, spices, citrus, and Chardonnay. Dry finish. Interesting.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 Bottle thanks to Blutt59. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with fizzy head. Notes of farmhouse, citrus, musty, lemon hints and earthy, dry. Medium body with high fizzy carbonation. Overall, solid.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Another tasty brewed provided by Dallas. This corked and caged 75cl bottle pours totally opaque pale gold with white head. The aroma is both tart and funky with a bit of acidity and a bit of earthy moldy citrus. The taste has a good deal of bitter tartness with citrus acidity and some old expired citrus like funkiness. Around these notes there’s also mild wheat notes off in the background. Good stuff.

Terminus (3216) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 30, 2011
bottle-pours lightly hazy dark yellow with a spritzy white head around the rim of the glass with cascading carbonation, this nose is off the chain-lots of wood, funk, spice (corriander), white grapes, estery funk from the brett and some phenols from the lemon. One of the best noses i have ever smelled if you ask me. Flavors follow suit for the most part-lots of earthy estery belgian brett funk, lite lemongrass, corriander and dry yeast quality. this thing is really dry!!!! THis is probably due ot the chardonay barrel aging, which gives this woody dry finish. An amazing beer of this style to have this much complexity. I thought Jolly Pumpkin was doing awesome things with their Wit, well they just met their match!

C&C 750 mL bottle shared at the 6th annual Richmond Industry Gathering, 11/27/11. Pours a hazy straw color with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of tart bready notes, citrus and earthy notes. Very similar taste. Medium-full bodied.
