4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orangeish straw colored pour with a short lived white head. Tart, hay, and funk in the aroma with soft clove and raspberry. The flavor comes in layers. Tart, acidic and funky upfront. Then the wit layer rolls in with a nice, smooth and soft clove and banana and gentle spice. The raspberries kick in at the end with a fresh, tart note.

Thanks to Popkas for sharing this recent release. 750ml bomber, poured into a Fantome tulip. Fuzzy yellow color with a tannish head and nice lacing. I commented that it smells like something my daughter would like. Aroma was like a mixture between Tang and Squirt. So I am expecting a sour influenced Witbeer. Okay, that’s new. Starts off with doughy grapefruit and apple skins. You can get the influence of the wine barrels and raspberries right up front. Lighter notes of the brett throughout. Well carbed. Somewhat lactic, with orange rinds and kumquats on the finish. This is different, but a pretty nice brew. Thanks Jason.

Bottle thank you Craig for the share. Pours a peach like puree with a very clean and neat white head and speckled lacing. Aromatically soft and fruit. Lemon zest, light raspberry notes, skins, and seeds. Light white grape notes with a soft clean feel. Pezz candies and a hint of wheat. Very low acidity with a crisp raspberry bite. Absolutely delicious and very young when served. I didn’t expect anything out of this beer and yet i was blown away. Fantastic.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge, huge thanks to Brad for opening up this bottle at last night’s tasting. Served in a Bruery tulip.
Pours a bit lighter than the color of pink grapefruit juice. The nose is really enticing with a mild lactic character along with a great raspberry presence. Really nice fruit all around. Damn good. A bit of mild coriander in there as well; if not that, then some other spice. The flavor is sublimely fruity with a beautiful sourness hitting in the midpalate and carrying through to the finish. A bit of light spicing is there in the flavor as well. The mouthfeel was splendid and did a fantastic job blending the fruit and sourness, and had a really fantastic level of carbonation as well. Overall, a very, very solid beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Bottleworks for rating #3300:   Deep hazy peach, large white pillowy head, fairly clingy lacing.   Funky nose, barnish, musty blanket, a blanket that seems stained with Rapberry syrup.   Smells delicious.   Very tart on the tongue, a little puckering, with some dry Raspberry fruitiness.   This is great stuff.   A nice blend of sour and fruitiness.   Finish is very dry, some musty grasses, Raspberry, and just what I will call plain ole funk.   Really impressed with this one.   Very much a good blend of sourness and fruitiness.   The 8% ABV is not detectable, albeit with nothing in my stomach it sure is being felt.   Has a little bit of mealiness or dank wheatiness to finish it off.   I think its safe to say I would reach for this one again and again given the chance.   Well balanced, with just enough fruitiness to compliment the sourness.   One of the better Bruery offerings.   Tasty!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Bottom of the bottle pour - a hazed, murky peach/apricot with a thin ring of white film atop. Aroma has lightly tart raspberry skin, creamy wheat, a hint of wild yeast, peach skin (?), sulphur and the smallest hint of oak. Flavor follows suit. Lightly tart, a touch of acetobacter, raspberry skin, very light oak tannIn, a touch of wheat, tart brett and some odd seasalt note. Creamy texture. Moderate to low carbonation with a short, but fairly gripping (acid wise) finish. Kind of a mess. Thanks fellas!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with the crew at Gregs. Hazy light orange, with a bone white head and decent lacing. Fades to a skim rather quickly. Aroma is sulfur, big barnyard funk, cheese, lots of fruit (Peaches, apricots, white grapes), and a touch of hops. Slightly vegetal, in a young sourkraut sort of way. Really nice first impression on the tongue. Lots of apricots, lactic acid, slight funk. Wet bread/grain on the back of the tongue, much like a Berliner. Very, very nice. Mouthfeel has lively carbonation, with a slightly slick feel. A great beer, that I am sure will only improve with age

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] shared by Armin, Caleb, and Greg. Thanks guys! Pours a nice hazy peach color with a lasting film of eggshell white head. Aroma is sulphury, carrot, light fruitiness - peaches, raspberry and strawberry, maybe some rhubarb, lactic sharpness. Flavor has a little coriander, light raspberry, peach, moderate sharpness, dry lactic finish. The berliner weisse cultures are evident. This was pretty good, but the sulfur is just too much.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy orange-ish with white head. Aroma has notes of peach, sulfur, rotten egg, some raspberry, funk, barnyard, cheese, yeast. Taste is nice acidic sharpness, some sweet peach and raspberry, lemon, bready, with some sulfur and rotten egg. Very fresh taste, some dusty grain in the back end. Good stuff!

Bottle thanks to 5000! Hazy peach colored pour, lasting carbonation and lacing and a very cheesy sour aroma. Flavor is light lemon, peaches, a hint of tart raspberries and finished light and slightly sweet on the aftertaste. Very enjoyable, but I personally wouldn’t go chasing after this one.
