Damico (2858) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Tap at beer belly in Albany, pours thick lemony white unclear with a white head. Aroma brings the citrus so nicely blended with the wild yeast. The flavor does the same bringing even more delicious citrus notes and wild yeast blended so nicely, with the wild yeast really picking up the pace after the sweet and rindy citrus showcases at the beginning.

cards04 (2217) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
I don’t know how this is a witbier but who cares I guess. It’s damn tasty. Pours a dark dusky yellow. Aromas are stable, white wine, lemon, vinegar. Great sour flavors. A great option for summer time sipping. Lots of bright citrus flavors, funk, white wine. Great!

AirForceHops (4348) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 1, 2015
375 bottle spilt by Willrunforbeer. 2013 Batch 2. Hazy gold, no head. Aroma has a great citrus character with a mild funky yeast. Flavor has citrus though out the sip with a nice level of tartness. Not sour, tart. Has a citrus rind bitterness that also help balance the tartness. Damn, really well balanced! The finish is dry with a refreshing crispness. I could sip this for an extended length of time.

vyvvy (4623) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours hazy yellow / orange with a modest sized white head. The aroma comes off more lambic-like than witbier. There is modest tartness, oak, funk, citrus, cheese zest, spices and an underlying richness. Very nice and inviting. It has a light crisp super snappy body with a touch of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with sharp citrus, funk, cheese, peppery spice, cinnamon, oak and it even seems like the blood orange flavor comes up front. The finish is very dry with the spice and citrus taking center and just enough malt and oak to keep it in check. Excellent beer.

Bottle shared by a friend. Opaque yellow color with a fuzzy white head. Aroma of Froot Loops, orange and wheat. Orange flavor with creamy wheat before a sour finish.
