ChinoSkillzian (135) - The Hills, California, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at FW barrelworks. Pours a clear light golden with minimal head. Nice clean nose with aromas of fruity and floral brett character, lime peel, and juicy citrus. Soft palate with flavors of lemon blossom, flower petal, some hay, and acid. A very nice beer, but toes the line between bretted saison and Berliner.

thome50 (892) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Draft at Bottleworks. Listed as "Barrelworks Bretta Weisse" so I’m not sure if this beer changes recipes slightly as others noticed it called something else at the tap room. Pours a clear, light golden with big white head. Aroma is lemon peel, mild to slight funk, slight dairy overtones. Taste is a very mild lactic sour with load of ripe lemon peel, lemon and slight, ok little to no, funk. The sourness is dry and something that makes this a very easy to drink berliner. As of now, this would be my summer berliner or choice going forward. Please start growler fills of this ASAP.

(Critique chaotique du extreme beer fest 2013): Barrelworks wild weisse: Très en douceur avec une légère acidité, fini avec une sécheresse moelleuse. Buvabilité titanesque.
