Pours a very cloudy, bright golden banana yellow color with a half finger white head that quickly disappears. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Very inviting nose with an amazing earthy brett character that is perfectly integrated into the witbier notes. Musty, dry and grassy with peppery spice notes countered by bready yeast and light fruit esters. Hints of ginger and grains of paradise followed by citrus peel and pale fruit notes. Lighter end of medium body with a nice dry, musty brett presence that’s well integrated into the elements of the base beer. Not as exciting as the aroma suggests with subtle funk, earthy hop, grass and straw along with peppery spice, sourdough bread and light fruit notes. Some coriander and ginger along with banana bread, wild yeast, citrus rind and light fruit. Decent but somewhat of a let down considering the complexity and appeal of the aroma.

Aroma: oak, sours, citrus, tart. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sour. Palate: intense sours, citric acid, lemons, light wood notes. Overall: bit of a weird Witbier, more like a Sour. Pint at Beavertown Brewery, Tottenham.

Nuffield (3912) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Hazy yellow color, nice appearance. Belgian pale complexion, with a nice profile and balance, until a bitterness that is hidden there comes out a bit too strong. (at 2015 Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN)

Bottled@PBF X. Hazy yellow colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is floral, wooden, herbal and some mild sour notes. Flavour is being rather similar, with the sourness and tartness a bit stronger. Pleasant and very refreshing.

Suttree (5689) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Yellow, thin white head. Smells like fresh bread, some citrus, and some white wine. Taste is oaky, funky, some surprisingly subtle citrus notes. Becomes much more bretty as it warms. Nice stuff.

TBone (14786) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle at PBFX. Hazy orange color, small white head. Lemony, bretta and some fruityness. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Citrus, astrigent, active carbonation, even a bit too much. Easier than winter version. Balanced.

375ml bottle @PBF X. Thanks Jan! Hazy amber, thick white head. Citrusy aroma, tartness, apples in aroma. Flavor has apples, lemon tartness, juicy stuff. Refreshing and very drinkable.
