3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very complex beer. Do yourself s favor and be sure this one is at least 45 degrees or more warm - any under and the flavors separate. That said, very interesting beer - crisp, earthy, and oaky make for a wild combo.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle - $15.00 at Tasty Beverage Company in Asheville, North Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a pale yellow body with noted clarity and a near nil, thin white head.
Smell: Harbors a scent of shredded crustless bread, old lemons-n-limes for a soft citrus nature and a fair amount of buttery white wine with a vein of mild, salty funk.
Taste: Very minor maltiness, only hinting a little hay-hewn cracked grains. Very minimal sweetness. A little lemon, a little lime and a sip of white wine giving a bit of buttery oakiness and subtly minerality. Slight albeit growing spiciness settles on the tongue, hinting at the peppercorns and earthy coriander. A bit more floral, citrus on the back-half. Drying, floral with a touch of orange juice on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Lightly carbonated.
Overall: An easy-drinking, albeit less than typical witbier. Though, for one’s money, you’d be just a well served by a Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Split 3-ways. Hazy yellow-golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma is weirdly very lambic-like with a pretty nice funk, some white winey and grapey notes, hints of vinegar and mild peppery presence. Taste definitely have something Belgian but no way I would be able to say it’s a "Wit" in a blind tasting. Acidity is moderate, again it’s quite lambic-like, the white wine is definitely noticeable but never overpowering, citrus notes and mild peppery presence. Medium body. Very soft carbonation, pretty close to being flat. Winey mouthfeel. Oaky. Dry and a bit puckering finish. It’s tasty and flavorful but the lack of carbonation is certainly hindering drinkability and enjoyability. The bottle we had was much closer to unblended lambic than to a tradtionnal Wit. Tasty .

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours hazy wellow with a white head. The brett is subtle in the aroma and in the taste, at least as compared to many other brett beers. Aroma is spices, coriander especially, light lemony citrus, and tree. Taste is lightly bitter with all them apicy notes. Some light pepper and low sweetness. Pretty good. Subtle. To the uninitiated, I am tempted to say they would be hard-pressed to see how different this actually is.
