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)

Scopey (10027) - 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!

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 (4902) - 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.

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2013
750 ml bottle - at Moeder Lambic Saint-Gilles - in THE cellar during a vertical DL tasting - thanks to Jean Moeder. Pours fuzzy white yellow with a nice decent head. Aromas are wheat, citrus, spring grass at sunset. Very nice balance in sourness, sweetness and malty fruitiness. Nice beer!

mcberko (10569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, pours a cloudy light golden with a medium white head. Aroma of barnyard funk, some citrus zest, and some wild yeast. Flavour is quite wild tasting, with notes of brett, some mild white wine notes, wheat and light fruits. Not very lambic-like, which is a change for Cantillon, and One of the lightest beers they’ve done. Great stuff, but misses the complexity of many of their other beers.

Thx to Jean at Moeder Lambic St-Gilles !

Head: small, white, foamy
Colour: very hazy blond
Smell: lots of wheats, a little bit of hops, decent sourness
Taste: wheats come first and blend over superbly with the sour and bitterness level of the beer, this is deff. beter than what i’ve expected of a "sour witbier" really nice !

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 From notes. At Cantillon in 2010. Hazy straw-yellow body, large frothy white head, good lacing. Nose is wheat, lemon zest, wet hay, and some must. Pleasant Cantillon funk on top of a witbier. Medium to light bodied, assertive carbonation, pleasant acidity throughout, nice tart finish.
