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)

75 cl bottle @ hotel room, Brussels. Rated on 20.07.2010
Aroma is sourish with urinal cake and some soapy citrus typical to witbiers. Flavour is sour and somewhat tart with citrus, some urinal cake, earthy notes and hints of spices. A witbier way more sour and tart than usually. Interesting, funky and refreshing.

750ml bottles provided by Jean & Jean at WLV gathering.

Pours golden yellow, white fizzy head that dissipates down to a thin ring around the glass and some faint bubble on top here and there which act as a cap. Nice funk/sour notes, lemon zest, barnyard. Not quite as funky as the nose would suggest. Light hay notes, some bitter funk, slight lemon zest. Slight bitter funky finish. Light, crisp, fizzy carbonation, dry finish.

Scopey (7884) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle shared at WoSF, 2013. It pours clear golden with a thick white head. The nose is strongly menthol notes, herbal, ice-tea, wheat, peach, nectarine, wood and earth. The taste is lemon, ice-tea, tart granny smith apple, hay, wood and home-made lemonade with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty unusual...smells rather minty. Interesting, but far from their best!

berntholer (1163) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2013
ivory white head that disappears quickly without lacing. cloudy straw-yellow colour. pronounced aroma that reminds me of a white/green mold on a spoiled orange. the taste is like the aroma but i would also add a dried up mandarin ends bitter followed by a wry aftertaste. medium carbonation. hmm although an interesting experience i can’t say i am a big fan of this edition. bottle 75 cl @ weekend der spontane gisting 2013

ClubGonzo (4375) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle @ Cantillon, Brussels, shared with Inbreak and ej. Two Zwanzes in one day - this is better than Zwanze Day itself! :-D Pours a clear light golden body with a small white head. Aroma is mild horseblanket, wheat and cereals, hints of straw, grass and lemon. Taste is wheat, cereals, mild lemony tones and hints of horseblanket. Light body, high carbonation. Easy and pleasant drinking, with enough character to make it interesting as well.
