timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine. Aroma was sour lemon and Brett. Flavor has an understated/even/bitter hop in the middle with slightly tart lemon, chardonnay, and unnamed holiday spices. Palate was amazing and appearance had billowy head and lots of lacing. I absolutely loved this beer. What a great mix of styles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Aroma: refreshing citrus notes, lots of lemon, some pepper, hint of barrel character, rustic Brett notes - lightly funky and earthy. Pours a hazy straw color, abundant white head with good retention and lacing. Flavor follows the nose closely - citrus and light-moderate Brett character, dusty and earthy with a crisp acidity, some light cereal grains, lemon zest, peppercorns. Barrel notes are evident but mellow, nice dry finish. Light body, high carbonation. Great beer.

BeerBaboon (2069) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Yellow and hazy. Aroma reminds me of white wine or cider. Aroma is earhtly and makes you think of coconuts, pina colada and apples. Flavour of coconut, malts, wood and herbs. Somewhat sour. Medium body. A bit slippery mouthfeel..

jackl (7562) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at Scopeys CBC Tune-Up. Very light straw yellow with no head. The nose is slightly boozy sweet sauterne wine, some general yeasty sour funk, lemon peel and light notes of ginger. Flowery. The taste is light sour white grapes, delicate sun-kissed wheat and straw. More lemon rind and fermented orchard fruits. Easy-drinking light body. Quite refreshing indeed. Overall, quite nice.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at my Pre-CBC Tune-Up Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours straw yellow, with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is farmyard, herbal, medicinal, funk, vinous, floral and a touch of honey. The taste is tart lemon, wheat, hay, grass. tangy citrus, farmyard, white grape, orange peel and medicinal notes, with a dry, slightly tart finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Good balance and easy drinking. A very good Witbier.

ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 7, 2012
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon zest and sweet wheat with some funkiness, barnyard smells, and some brett. Hint of green apple sourness and oak as well. T - Starts off some barnyard funkiness, brett, some green apple sourness, a bit of wheat, and some tart lemon zest. Through the middle, some light oak flavors come through with a hint of spices alongside some mellowing tartness. The finish is a mix of wheat, tart lemon zest, funky brett, and a hint of oak. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a tart, dry, and crisp finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice complex witbier beer with the Brett flavor really blended in nicely. Super crisp and refreshing as well.
