Minderbinder (3336) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle 750ml. Thx Tom10101. Pours hazy blond with low white head. No lacing. Aroma is of bretts, rusticity, herbs, spices. Taste is of sourness, acidity, bretts. Palate: Light body. Very soft/low carbonation. Overall: Good. Sourness is not overdone.

tom10101 (5563) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle (750 ml). Split 3-ways. Hazy yellow-golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma is weirdly very lambic-like with a pretty nice funk, some white winey and grapey notes, hints of vinegar and mild peppery presence. Taste definitely have something Belgian but no way I would be able to say its a "Wit" in a blind tasting. Acidity is moderate, again its quite lambic-like, the white wine is definitely noticeable but never overpowering, citrus notes and mild peppery presence. Medium body. Very soft carbonation, pretty close to being flat. Winey mouthfeel. Oaky. Dry and a bit puckering finish. Its tasty and flavorful but the lack of carbonation is certainly hindering drinkability and enjoyability. The bottle we had was much closer to unblended lambic than to a tradtionnal Wit. Tasty .

Sigmund (6899) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2015
750 ml bottle, as Anchorage Whiteout Wit Bier With Brett, soon available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%, 20 IBU. Extremely pale yellow colour, moderately hazy. Moderate white head. Aroma of citrus / lemons, lemongrass, coriander, black pepper and dill. The flavour has the same elements as the aroma, medium dry, refreshing. Only a hint of brett and white wine.

mansquito (5593) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2015
The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle: pours hazy wellow with a white head. The brett is subtle in the aroma and in the taste, at least as compared to many other brett beers. Aroma is spices, coriander especially, light lemony citrus, and tree. Taste is lightly bitter with all them apicy notes. Some light pepper and low sweetness. Pretty good. Subtle. To the uninitiated, I am tempted to say they would be hard-pressed to see how different this actually is.

beernbourbon (1569) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 12, 2015
June 2015 bottle. Pour is light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is lightly Funky and lightly bretty with some plastic notes and a touch of citrus. Flavor is spicy and bretty up front with some black pepper notes and light citrus. Nose and flavor pretty much match up. Clean. Long, dry, spicy finish.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale slightly hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is sour brett, lemon, coriander. Taste is moderate to heavily sour tart with flavors of citrus fruit, a little wine grape, grass, yeast. Pretty good for a sour wit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ffbot (367) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Pour was a hazy unfiltered dark purple coloring, big tan head that retained. Smell of citrus, lemon peel, peppery and earthy, big yeasty smell. Taste follows: citrus is subdued but comes barking back at the finish. Big sour and bitter clash, a long bitter after taste. Dry, leathery finish.

JDBaker11058 (1999) - Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2015
appearance: cloudy bright gold, short fizzy white head, quickly vanishes to a soapy ring. aroma: some toasted white bread, a bit of white wine, coriander, citrus, general funk. taste: taste is typical wit, undercut by an extensive, exhausting sharpness from the brett. finish: lingering plasticky sharpness, nearly mineral. notes: Really, really wanted to like this. Felt like someone took a wit and just overwhelmed it with brett. Maybe my taste buds were just off, because everyone else seems to like it, and it sounded right up my alley. Bottle from Sarah for Annibeersary 2015 via Craft Beer Kings.
