22oz bottle (but the label states 1PT., 9.4fL OZ). A fun take on the wit for sure. Pours a fairly crystal light gold with a frothy but sustained small bright white head. Aroma initially presents a touch of oak balanced by some subtle spice (orange peel being the most dominant). Warming brings out some agave nectar, white pepper and maybe some allspice? A touch of creamy wheat rounds out the nose. Flavor is creamy from the wheat with some slight tartness from the oak aging. Some very light spice flavors with green apples and white grape flavors as well. Medium bodied. Creamy texture. Slightly tart initially on the finish, but the creamy wheat takes hold on the back of the tongue. A unique wit that I could session the hell out of in the summer. Not overly complex, but what it’s lacking is fully made up by it’s insane drinkability. Thanks Matt!

Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Sediment-laden hazy medium orange-yellow body; thick creamy off-white head. Beautiful nose, a bouquet of sour pineapple, floral notes, pepper, and fennel. Tart body, floral with herbs (fennel); also lemon pixie stix and root beer. Sweet and tart.

750ml bottle served in a tulip. Pour is a hazy, orange hued gold with two fingers of wispy light head. Nose is yeast, cellar, funk, wood, tart cranberries, and dry champagne carbonation. Taste is right on par as it starts with very dry, but naturally sweet summer fruit and funk. This is followed by the yeast/wood/cranberry wallop that rolls right into the finish. This is a nice sour, nothing spectacular, but a very nice drinking staple if you are into sours.

750ml from State Line. I’ve not had the base beer, but comparison aside this one was really intriguing. Lively pale gold pour with crisp, prickly carbonation such as you’d get with a gueuze. The nose has a promiment, oaky chard thing happening with hints of dryness, tartness coming on. It’s acetic enough to give it some sharpness on the tongue, but not as in heat. Taste is dry white wine, slight woody funk, and just a hint of citrus and lactose. Kinda like a second-tier Brute or Temptation but that’s still pretty sweet.

Pours a cloudy/milky straw yellow, with white head. Tart, lemons, floral, light wheat sweetness, fruit (kind of tropical), light spice, brett funk, and oak. Really nice refreshing, bright beer. I love it.

SilkymuthafuckinTodd popped this late in the day at bas release and it was a fantastic choice for late in the day. Bright hazy light amber with small white head. Nose is bright sunshine and polka dot bikini at the beach on a 19 year old coed. Taste is tart heavenly goodness and a flowing summer skirt as the sun sets over the pacific. Love it.

Crisp sour bretty nose with a touch of spice beneath. Whitish tinted yellow, whispy white above. Berliner weisse looking. Crisp, sour flavors...remarkably clean and refreshing, seriously...even a touch salty around the edges...way more a super sour berliner than a witbier...I mean, I think I detected some of the spices in the nose but flavorwise is all crisp clean sourness...citrusy, lactic, bretty...this is a god damned fantastic beer. Thanks to lushawn for the bottle.

A: The pour is a very pale straw color with a large white head. S: Smells interesting. Mild tart with a heavy hand on the lemon aromas. Quite a bit of floral qualities to it with a mild funk and oak, perhaps a little lacto. There’s plenty of oak and a touch of white wine. T: The flavor is not too shabby. Heavy on the grass, hay, and lemon zest. Fairly funky and rather strong on the oak. Mild wine and vanilla, some hints of fruit in there as well. Maybe a little bit of pineapple. M: Fairly light in body with a high level of carbonation and a dry finish. O: This was surprisingly good. While all of the barrel aged beers from Cisco have been enjoyable, this one was a bit above the rest.
