Brewed with lemon peel, black peppercorns and corriander (sic).
Triple fermented - first in the tank with Belgian yeast, second in french oak Chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces, and finally in the bottle with a third yeast for natural carbonation.

gator2683 (199) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Very good. Clear gold with a bright white head. Light floral hops aroma. The flavor is crisp and dry with plenty of brett and funk. Not much wheat for a wit but I don’t mind. A nice session beer if you can afford it

haukur (1963) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - AUG 5, 2017
backlog. Somewhat cloudy pale yellow. Firm head. Zesty aroma, lemony, black pepper. Dry mouthfeel, somewhat funky and complex. Nice

Panel w Carpe Kraft. Ładna mętno słomkowa barwa, piana znika szybko i zostaje po niej jedyni obrączka wokół szkła. Aromat słaby, lekko mydlany, trochę nut gumy balonowej, kolendry, ziołowość z piołunową nutą. W smaku czuć na pierwszym planie bretty, średnie wysycenie, ta mydlaność przeszkadza w odbiorze, szybko męczy.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Reviewed from saved notes. The appearance was a semi-hazy yellow color with a super quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white fizzy head. Quickly sliding lace. The aroma had a huge vinous/white grape quality about it, spritzy lemon/citrus sharp qualities, and light mineral water. The flavor was sour through the vinous/white grape quality and over doing the entire base. Aftertaste was the same and so was the finish. The palate was light bodied with too much sour harshness distracting the overall enjoyment of this beer. Carbonation was also a bit too much. ABV did feel fine. Overall, another overdone beer by Anchorage. Not a true witbier and also one that I wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole again.

ansalon (3904) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2017

Bottle from Liquor Barn into a pint glass. Aroma of coriander, hay, and basement aromas. I did not enjoy this at all.

60minuteman (1743) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2017
Cloudy and hazy yellow with three finger head. Peppery aroma, wheat, lemon and spice. Lemon zest, peppercorns, a bit of heat and malted wheat/corn. Clean and balanced wit. Really really clean. So true to style that it almost comes across as dull. It’s still great though.

ineedbeer (2170) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2017
Poured from a Batch 1, May 2011, 750 ml bottle. Aroma is light with some hints of wheat and light honey notes. Light citrus with faint pepper and coriander. Light pineapple and tropical fruit with hints of an earthy must. Pours a crystal clear, yellow straw color with a medium small, somewhat thin, white head that exhibits alright retention as it recedes to a thin film that lingers on the edges for a bit before disappearing. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with hints of wheat and honey. Light citrus notes with lemon and orange. Light coriander and hints of peppercorn. Some light tropical fruit and pineapple notes with hints of an earthy must. Some lingering honey notes and citrus. Medium low bitterness. Hints of chardonnay and oak. Mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, I’m not sure if its the age or not, but the beer is thin and the flavors and aromas are very muted. Its an ok beer, and clean, but it is lacking life.
