Pours a clear lemon yellow color with a tiny white head. Aroma is brett, belgian yeast, and lemon candy. The taste is light and crisp with bit of lemon,white wine, and that familar brett taste. Its not sour at alll. Very dry and crisp and refreshing. Maybe the best wit ive ever had.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4349) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2016
Bomber shared by Paul. Anchorage whiteout brett witbier 6.5% A very light gold with a filmy wisp of white foam. A wheaty lemon and spice aroma with a light ultra dry body and wheat, brett, lemon and green hops but very minimal witbier character. More an American wheat than a belgian wit but good.

ScoWRee (410) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours a pale golden color. Super big white foamy head. Not much aroma. Slight citrus aroma. Taste is very light. Slightly hoppy slightly lemony. I can’t get a handle on this. I guess it might be a nice Witbier. Not my thing

poisoneddwarf (2247) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 27, 2016
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Aroma is funky brett, lemon, lotion, dusty basements, old books, floral, chalky candy. Pours extremely pale yellow with a thick soapy white head with great retention. Taste is dry with flavors of brett, lotion; I can taste black pepper, but don’t think I would have noticed it without it being mentioned on the label. Likewise, I can pick out the chardonnay now that I know it was aged in barrels containing it, but I’m not getting the oak itself. No coriander that I can tell, either. It’s actually kind of bland. Well, it alternates between being interesting from the brett, to a watery blandness that I’m not used to with well made examples of the style. Mouthfeel is champagne-level foamy. It’s not bad, but it’s a bit of a letdown from the description on the label.

Pours a hazy yellow golden color with fizzy white head. Citrus, coriander, funk, light tartness, and oak on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with fruit, brett, and some light tartness.

MrMeadMan (73) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Pours with a nice white foamy head. Belgian yeast aroma as expected. The Brett and oak flavors are not pronounced but are present. A tasty brew but not what I personally would call a standout.

Holmen1 (4700) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2016
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, jan-16: klar, svært lys strågul med flott skum som varer. Luftig, lett og elegant i uttrykket, både i aroma og smak. Sitrongress, pepper, dill, koriander er noen av ordene som går rundt i panelet. Kan humlen være Soraci Ace? Superelegant, reneste champagnen, stor begeistring hos alle. Superb palate. Ovesen ønsker seg bare et smørbrød med gravlaks til denne.
