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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (6162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle sample at a sour tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Noam. Batch #2, 3/12. Pale yellow with a white head. Aroma of wood, brett, white wine, fruits and a bit of spiciness. Sourish flavor, vinous, woody, with fruits (quite citric), brett, some spiciness and some bitterness. Medium-bodied, lively carbonation.

M82 (299) - Kansas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
A hazed light, sunny yellow body sits beneath a fading half inch frothy-tight white head falling to a solid ring with a few dots of lace

Initially, the adjuncts merge with the yeast and barrel to create a dominate stanky-cheesy funk note, which at times gives way to cleaner, brighter notes of lemon peel, spices, bright earthy barn, and chardonnay with smooth transitions on a creamy, mildly carbonated medium-light body offering a clean, vinous, lemony-tart residual

750ml cork and cage Batch #3 2014 served at 45º and warming into Orrefors Beer Taster

MacBoost (1331) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2014
750ml from Johns Grocery. Real nice bier clerk sent me this one. Excellent service. Pours a pale yellow color with a minimal head. Aromas of lemon and citrus, with some oak and funk tossed in for good measure. Taste is semi sweet and lightly bitter, even for the style. Flavors of straw, lemon peel, light oak. Finish is slightly sweet and sweaty. Pretty solid.

"a standout in the style, if only because it no longer really fits the style. the wit base makes itself known only in color and feel. the smell is mostly wild diaper, and the flavor brett and oak, with very light chardonnay aspects. good beer, but too steep in price. i’ll be curious about future releases from this new brewery, though. brewer spent 13 years at midnight sun..."

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Light 10 karat pour with ample carbonation and a tightly packed ivory cap. Lemongrass, hay, some funk, white wine, coriander, crushed black pepper, and biscuit. Lots going on here, but it all seems to meld together nicely. Yum!

Huhzubendah (2631) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Complex aroma of coriander, wheat, light misc. spice, grass, floral notes, white wine. A tasty beer for sure. Additional notes of tart citrus and black peppercorns. Saison characteristics. Delicious.

angelkostvo (640) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2014
Pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of white wine, wet wood, dough, citrus, basement aromas. Taste is quite complex, slight sweet, slight sour, a bit bitter. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Very interesting , I like it a lot.

Ontape (323) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUL 23, 2014
March 2012 bottle. Pours clear gold carb that fades quickly. Aroma has an almost cloying quality that is not immediately identifiable to me, possible the brett or a combo of the brett and Chardonnay? It’s almost like coconut. Taste is less unusual with lemon, pepper, oak. Lightly tart. Pretty good.

Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a cloudy yellow with a frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is belgian yeast, oak, and clove. Thin mouthfeel with nice citrus, clove, brett and nice dryness, very good.
