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)

Bottle (750 ml). Shared by Fred82, huge thanks! Clear and bright yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very interesting with strong lemony notes, light spices, herbal presence and light funky notes. Taste is very lemony too and similar to the aroma. Light body. Medium to lively carbonation. Clean/crisp. Chalky and slightly dry mouthfeel. Light, refreshing and drinkable. Unique wild Wit. Lovely.

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 (12537) - 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 (1566) - 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 (5422) - 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 (1725) - 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 (14411) - 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 !
