COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A handcrafted treasure, the ultra-limited edition Private Reserve Belgian White, is crafted with a classic Belgian beer yeast. Cloudy, with a rich golden hue, it presents a delicate aroma and taste, with coriander and orange notes. It pares excellently with seafood fare, mixed greens or sharp cheeses. Join the select few who get an exclusive taste of the fruits of our labor.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy amber with a transient bubbly/frothy white head. Aroma of cooked apples and light citrus. About med body. Flavor is very pleasant. Apple, wood, mild citrus. Finishes a bit less than dry. It’s even a little astringent. It drinks quite easily. One of the better Woodchucks IMHO.

daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
A hazy light yellow pour with a white head. Great aroma of yeast, spice, tangerine and lots of tart apples. Flavor is sweet and yeasty, just enough tartness to balance. Nice spice. Damn good!

GT2 (8331) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Tap at Iron Horse Taproom. Hazier, flattish pour. Nose is sweet orange and yellow pear. Taste is tangy, sour pear juice. Lots of green apple juice. Quite tart actually. Wayyy to sweet. Not bad- but super pear heavy. Sugary with sharp sour tanginess in the back end. Mildly refreshing. No cloying heaviness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg, VA. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin off-white head, bits and pieces of which stick around a while. Aroma of tart apples, yeast, banana, citrus. The taste is apples, melon, tart finish. Grainy. Medium bodied. Interesting.
