3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7oz bottle, thanks to adnielson. Mostly clear golden color. Hazy with the last bit in the glass. Thin white head. Small ridges and ropes of lace. Nice, citrusy fruity sort of limey aroma. Lightly spicy, very bright overall. Medium body. Very bright, light, crisp carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish. Moderate tart taste, pretty zesty. Moderate sweet taste. Very solid bretty belgian witbier. Very light, bright, and drinkable. Bretty funky citrus works very well with the belgian wit flavor profile. Still though, the bretty character makes this an entirely different type of beer than the typical awesome belgian witbier. Very good, but in a different way than the best examples are (which are awesome -- without brett). Orange, spicy citrus finish.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small off-white creamy head that laces well. Aroma is, well, odd. I smell some Brett, but its kind of bathroomy rather than barnyardy, and some fruit and wheat as well. Flavor is a DEFINITE improvement, with citrus, Brett (back in a good way), wheat, more citrus. Initial sweetness, drying out on the finish. Minimal bitterness and not much in the way of extraneous spices either, which makes me happy. Medium body, bubbly carbonation. A nice beer once you get past the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours an opaque cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out the funky brett above anything, followed by wheat and a touch of citrus. Flavour brings out loads of citrus and brett upfront, though the citrus outshines as it’s extremely citric (!), followed by a touch of wheat. Very astringency citrusy notes upfront, followed by moderate funky brett notes. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Wonderful stuff.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, moderate tart lemon, and some light cheesy funk. It pours a hazy dull yellow with two finger soapy white head that has good retention. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with some tangy wheat notes. The finish light-moderate lemon, orange peel, light woody notes, and light must/funk. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mouth-puckeringly sour, as you would expect. Lacto sourness dominates, propped up by a solid wheat malt background. Citrus fruit is prominent - especially the tangerine as expected. Slightly too tart for my taste. There is a funkiness to this brew, although I would call this beer more fruit-forward than funky-forward. Mouthfeel is EXCELLENT - it’s not dry and backbone-less like some sour beers are. The wheat malt really lingers on the tongue. Just lovely.

Bottle shared by Fonefan at his place. Opaque murky pale yellow color, small to medium sized white head. Aroma is very nice and balanced, I get wheat, brett, fruitpeel, orangepeel, citrus, grapes, a bit winey. Taste is fresh, balanced, very nice. Again brett, winey, grapes, citrus, orangepeel. Fantastic beer.

Very nice. If wits always turned out like this I’d be a fan. Cloudy yellow without much head or lacing. Citrus and lots of bretta in aroma. Sour finish with some crispness. Slick mouthfeel. Nice. Thanks to Sammy.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared with Pat before some ramen at Ippudo, in HK NYC. Pours a lovely hazed yellow body with nice vibrant white head and lacing. Aroma is super tart lemons, barnyard funk and a crisp grassy character. Nearly perfectly balanced. Mouthfeel is dry and sour with notes of tart lemons, sour wheat, salt, lime and light tart citrus fruits. Overall, an incredibly balanced sour saison that could serve as a session beer as well.
