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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Barnyard, pepper, coriander, and lemon malt aroma. Hazy pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet tart lemon malt, white wine, and brett flavor. Okay - brett dominates.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a pale yellow-gold, smallish to nonexistent head but quite carbonated (looks more like champagne than beer). Nose is funk dominated, some mineral notes, grass, musty barrel, sulfur, lemons. Mouth is dry and funky, bretty, mildly bitter, tart, green apples, key limes, hay, chardonnay, oak, white pepper. The Brett makes this more like a sour than a Wit. I also drank this really cold, so not sure what was lost due to the temp, but I quite enjoyed it all the same. I wish Anchorage beers weren’t so erratic so far as distribution goes... one of my favorite brewers, but a rarity to find on Binny’s shelves.

Excellent delicate beer. Straw colored with big white head and excellent retention. Brett, citrus, funk, lemongrass in the aroma. Taste had more of a yeasty-peppery saison body than a wit beer. The brett was huge all over it. Lemon and oak were abound as well. Nice light body. Really enjoyed this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Scarcely resembles a witbier, more like a tart American saison with some light spiciness, a bit of bretty funk, lively carbonation, and the aforementioned light tartness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very pale blonde pour with a soft haze and two fingers of crackling white head. Nose is very nice funky and earthy upfront with a nice acidity and yeasty quality. Light acidity in the flavor that presents itself as a pleasant tartness at the front of the mouth. Yeasty with an earthy malt character and rustic note. Light and dry with a very soft carbonation and tart finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Florida. Wheat, floral aroma. Witbier flavor & pour but bit too much lemon. Mediocrity at its finest for the genre.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Syb Pig in Boca. Pours a nice hazy straw color with a thick head. Aroma is citrus with lemon and orange zest, brett, slight oak barrel, and some pepper spices. The taste is front end very citrus and then the brett and pepper come on the end. I had a tough time finding the coriander, but that was fine. Heavily carbed, clean, refreshing, somewhat tart finish for the style. Very good.
