COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian wheat beer aged in white wine barrels and allowed to become very slightly sour. This is a wonderful session beer for those of the “sour and funky” persuasion.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Earthy aroma suggesting citrus, pineapple and maybe brett. Med body. Rely earthy; still saying bretty, citrus. Like Berliner Weiss in a strong way. Extremely tasty.

Draft. Poured hazy dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate wheat and sour yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

slowrunner77 (10131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 8, 2016
@Mellow Fellow - more than just a hint of sour, to the point I’d class it as such. Wine and oak more than wheat, though still light and fairly refreshing. A little odd musty wheat tart finish.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Chill hazy canary colored with 1-finger creamy white head. Nose is hopcitrus, sour mashy fruit, pale malt, lactobacillus. Tastes tart, citric, with hops, pale malt, and funky yeasty spice. Palate is rich and smooth, with a lemony and funkier finish. A very good beer from AV.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2015
Sampled from the tap at Hopcat. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice white wind note with tart light fruits and a wheat backbone. Flavor is also white wine forward with a light tart fruit note and some light grains backing.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pouring at EBF 2015. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Soft musk, brett on the nose. Medium bodied, bretty. Tangy wheat, grapes, wood, brett.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy orange with a hint of red and a small white ring that lasts quite a while. Notes of vanilla, stone fruit, oak, brown sugar, fruity funk, wheat, and a bit of earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tangy, sour, sweet mouthfeel. Should definitely be reclassified as a sour/wild ale, but I’ll leave that up to the California admins.

marcus (9138) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
On tap at Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear golden with a huge white head and a slightly sour furity aroma. There is a subtly sour wheat flavor with some lemon. Very refreshing and tasty.
