sherm1016 (1116) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2012
750ml bottle, batch #1 bottled may 2011, split with my wife. Pours a bright, clear, yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is funky, citrus, lemon. Light to medium on the palate with light, soft carbonation. Flavor is if lightly sour, funky, yeasty, bready, with a light, sour lemon flavor. Pretty tasty at 18 months. Not sure it’s still a wit beer really, but that’s ok.

Torrefacto (511) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 14, 2014
Color oro pálido límpido con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas fresco de fruta , uva, limon, pimienta, genjibre y hierba. En boca es ligera y muy refrescante, la burbuja pica y los sabores son ligeramente ácidos y afrutados que dan paso a un leve toque de brett. y acaba con un amargor seco muy equilibrado. Riquísma.

neepsntatties (1170) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Bottle. Colour...hazy, light straw with a thick white head. Nose...quite yeasty and sweetly spicy with lemon curd and zest. Palate...velveteen with a generous froth and loads of spicy citrus up front. The lemon character is ever present and the yeasty bits as well, with tons of sweet spice. Light caramel hits the back of the palate and a dry, oaky feel hits the finish.
