How will a high fermentation beer ferment in the environment of a Lambic brewery where wild yeasts pervail? This old style white beer give you the answer. Ingredients: malt(60%), wheat(35%), oats(5%), hop (exact wording on bottle)

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Bottle. 2010 bottle. Pours a fairly clear golden straw color with a slight white head. Pretty muted aroma with notes of floral and barnyard. The taste is pretty low key as well by nice and easy drinking. Nothing extreme by any means. Light mouthfeel with some good carbonation. Somewhat lingering bitterness by other than that pretty clean ending. No really overally sour, more like a Berliner type sourness.

Really interesting beer. Big brett aroma comes out swinging. Aroma would lead one to believe it tastes tarter than it is; it’s only medium light tart as of now. Subtly spicy, all from the yeasts, apparently. Quite nice.

Bottle, with courtesy of Jakob, very appreciated! :-) Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is mild, dry grape and fruits with leather, wood and earthy notes. The flavour is nicely balanced, smooth and fruity with clear parallels to a witbier, but combined with pleasant notes an characteristics from a geuze (dry grape, apples, wood and leather), which compliments each other very well, and makes it very drinkable and refreshing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Hazy pale yellow with a small and creamy white head. Lovely funky aroma of barnyard, horse blanket etc etc - very Bretty indeed. Very light-bodied, low in carbonation, dry fruitiness, lacto and Brett with an edge of detergents. There’s vague fusty notes as well. Ends very dry and lightly sour. Absolutely no traces of what’s today categorized as a Belgian Wit. 280910

75 cL bottle, courtesy of kappldav123. Pours hazy orange to yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and dry brett, slight leathery and spiced. Fruity, mild acidic and dry citrusy. Lingering fruity, floral and mild hoppy. Brett, bitter and fruity finish. Nice one.

Ungstrup (34690) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, wood, and horseblanket. The flavor is sour with notes of lemon, brettanomyces, horseblanket, and wood, leading to a tart finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

A: The pour is a cloudy pale golden-orange color with a surprising amount of white head. S: The nose is sort of odd, but I expected that from this beer. A blend of musty funk, green melon, and witbier spiciness. A surprising amount of malt character, though it’s of the soft and pale variety. T: Everything about the flavor of this beer is mild; not at all that I expect from Cantillon. A subtle mix of spice, sweet malt, and very light lactic tartness. The funk is there, but it’s just sort of wet with a bit of a dusty cobweb feeling to it, though I don’t know how I would have ever tasted on before. M: The body is light with a very soft and subtle carbonation. D: I was sort of caught off-guard by this beer. While I’m aware of how this beer was brewed, I was expecting much more of the usual Cantillon lambic character to come through...perhaps with age.

spillata al machesiete... forse una delle birre più beverine che abbia mai bevuto... l’aspetto richiama molto una blanche ma al naso ha un profumo floreale citrico molto sour e leggermente speziato... equilibrio incredibile! è estremamente fresca e dissetante con un acidità perfetta che la rende ancora più gradevole...
