Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a near clear pale gold wit ha white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma is full of wheat with a hint of light fruit and flora as well as oak. Flavor begins with hay and is joined by grass and flora with hints of oak and light fruit backing.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 15, 2011
750ml bottle. Rating #56. Clear golden yellow pour wirh a white head. Funky aroma, picking up the oak pretty well, light citrus and lots of barnyard. Big citrus bite up front that lingers for awhile, more funk, but not as potent as the aroma, tasty beer. (1943)

A decent Belgian style witbier, with significant interesting sweetness from the brett. Fruity and interesting and different, very good for the style.Smooth mouthfeel and very good drinkability. A great bottle to share and accompany a good meal. Thanks Ryan.

It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was tart and spice with light wheat. The taste was the same with some light wheat and light orange. It came a long way, and was a decent Witbier.

Thanks to Keir for this one in trade. Pours a clear yellow with a big white head that recedes. Nose is chardonnay, wood, pineapple, citrus, slight spice, some coconut, hints of apricot with a bit of honey. Flavor is similar with a beautiful sweetness of citrus and wheat beneath a layer of wood, tart white wine, and some hint of vinegar. Light to medium in body and leaves a great taste when it goes.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2011
750 cc from Craft Ale. Pours chill hazy light golden, like a margarita on the rocks color, with 1-finger white head. Nose is heavy limey citrus, clovey spice, funky yeasty almost gueuze-like tartness. Tastes like slightly tart chardonnay with additional notes of limey citrus, clovey hoppy spice, and some yeasty funky notes. The oak comes through, as does the chardonnay, and this one works very well as a very unique and enjoyable style.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 26, 2011
750ml bottle. Clearish yellow with a thick, foamy, pure white head. Aroma of bretty horse blanket, hay, lemon, wheat and light spices. Flavor is wheat bread malt, musty sour yeast and a light hop bitterness. Light body with active carbonation and a tart, refreshing finish. Overall a really nice beer, very smooth and well balanced fresh and is getting more funky as it ages.
