3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Beware, this exploded all over the place when we opened it, probably lost a good five ounces. Pours a cloudy golden with lots of head. Aroma is full of sage, with the barrels there in the background as well. Body is very lively, medium. Flavor is well balanced if a little bit piquant, somewhat earthy and herbal. Finish reintroduces the sage, as well as a bit of yeastiness. Not bad, but not sure why the ratings are so high.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pale golden body. Fizzy, white head. Inviting aroma of fruits, brett, spice, sage, mustiness, straw, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Dry and tart finish. Taste of citrus and spice along with light brett funky lacquer and grass. Clean malts. Different for a wit and more complex than most. Very nice. Thanks for sharing wnoble.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden with no head. The aroma is oaked chardonnay with light hints of fruit and spice. The taste is light and crisp. If I tasted this blind I would swear it was champagne. There is tart apple and light spice on the long finish. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle consumed at City Beer. Pours clear golden with a modest off-white head and a winey aroma. There is a carbonated sour wheat flavor with what tastes like sage and a very dry finish. Much better than the typical witbier and positively affected by the brett.
