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

Bottled@The Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBF tasting. Hazy yellow colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is surprisingly witbiery with some mild sourness in it. Flavour is witbier, sourness, mild wood and some slight spicyness. Pleasant semidry and mellow Cantillon.

31st July 2010. ChrisO’s ’Raise The Roof’ tasting.
Bottle courtest of tdtm82 - Cheers Thomas! Hazy gold beer with a little white head. Sourish woody nose. Light palate - dry and soft. Lightly sourish wood. Okay not really getting much wheat beer vibe! Okay but not a patch on the 2009.

Cloudy blond color, with moderate carbonation, medium head, not very persistent. Very nice aroma, with wild yeast, mild Bretts, but also a very nice fruity touch, and lightly flowery too (elderflower). Dry mouthfeel, and light body; the cellar flavor is delicate, present but elegant, with a nice edge of lemon and cedar, a nice woody character; the sourness is mild, and there is a light astringency in the end.
Overall, a well balanced, harmonious and highly drinkable beer.
