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.

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 River’s 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 I’ve ever tried.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 Hazy yellow color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of wood, coriander, chardonnay, citrus fruits, vanilla, leather, and hay. Taste of citrus, spices, vanilla, hay, chardonnay, and a wild finish.

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 doesn’t smell like any other Witbier I’ve 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 I’ve had before. Aftertaste is mostly cheese with some rotten eggs. Overall very nice.

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.

Smelled quite funky, not really wheaty; a nice light color. This is very good. Light yet strange and tasty. Don’t know if I get oak, but certainly some funk. Different but would definitely drink again.

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 (2879) - 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.
