So we get hit with the snow storm from hell in October and I’m sitting on my couch with a blazing fire going cause the power’s been out for a week. I’m watching "the thing" on my laptop, and I just cracked this one open. It might be because of my heightned senses from no outside input for seven days, but this was truly an unbelievable beer. Will never forget that experience.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught@Pikkulintu, rated 2011-11-16) Murky golden with a small but firm, lacy head. Pleasantly fresh, very peppery-spicy nose with Tripel Karmeliet -style fruitiness. Flavor is also freshly fruity, with peppery spiciness in the finish. Some acidity and brett sourness, too. Soft and foamy palate, medium body. A really great, balanced and complex, strong witbier.

From a bottle. Pours hazy orange with white head. Pleasant aroma, some yeast, some sage, some fruit. Similar taste, very well balanced, yeast eaters, orange notes and a nice amount of sage. Perfectly dry on the palate, finishes nicely. A faultless beer with very interesting and unique qualities.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a champagne-like bubbly white head. Aroma of light banana and citrus peel. Great flavor that by no surprise from the aroma showcases the citrus. Light bubblegum is also noticeable but the orange and lemon notes steal the show. This does not stray too far from what a standard witbier normally tastes like but it does set the bar high. The only deterrent is the price vs. other beers in the category but aside from that this is at the top of the class. Great stuff.

Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass, shared with Cole. Pours cloudy orange, thick white head, very persistent, lovely lacing. A really sharp looking beer. Nose is very funky and the sage really comes through; funk, wheat, citrus, sage, salty lemons. Flavours are big, yet surprisingly drinkable; more sage, earthy cheese, funk, grass, some hop bitterness here too. Overall a very impressive and thoroughly enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong sage aroma, hazy golden color, a nice heavy head. A very clean taste despite the sage smell and taste. An abrupt sage taste that is washed away from the hints of circus, finishing with a nice clean taste.

(750 ml bottle from Oak St. Provisions) Pours hazy light amber-gold, cloudy deep into bottle. Large off-white head. Aroma of bread, spice and citrus. Mouthfeel light but full, smooth, refreshing. Flavor of light citrus over bread and caramel with spiciness building on back end. Some alcohol burn. Nice spice character and solid big witbier.
