arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours a clear lemon yellow color with a tiny white head. Aroma is brett, belgian yeast, and lemon candy. The taste is light and crisp with bit of lemon,white wine, and that familar brett taste. Its not sour at alll. Very dry and crisp and refreshing. Maybe the best wit ive ever had.

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

60minuteman (1575) - 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. Its still great though.

ineedbeer (2117) - 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, Im 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.

UXO (1803) - CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale straw with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: lemon zest, coriander, straw, white pepper. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate funky tart, mild-moderate bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, bone dry funky finish. (4/5) Excellent - Brett funk dominates over a pale Witbier base. This is my kind of beer! I dont know how much I believe that 20 IBU, though: it feels a bit more bitter than that typically implies, possibly because of the astringency from the Brett. In fact, the flavours are more like a Saison or a Tripel, than a Witbier. Any way you slice it, though, this is a really good one. (17/20)

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2016
2016-10-15. Very lightly hazy yellow body, with a nice foamy white head. 3++ Aroma has a melange of spice notes. Pepper amongst other things. Reminds me of sausage somehow - not in a meaty way but the spicing. Flavour has similar spice, bit of grassy notes, light alcohol and muted fruit. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Enjoyable. 7+/3-4/7/3/15
Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo.

Based on style this is the prize winner for a wit. Poured into a tulip glass developing a big three fingered clean white head with hyperactive carbonation and soapy bubbles that Pop and fizzle yet remain pillowy in the glass. The appearance is a hazy yet vibrant sunshine golden yellow. The aroma is uniquely complex with the white pepper, lemon zest, coriander, straw, and a slight undertone of mellow buttery Chardonnay. In terms of taste this is a equally complex With yeast, wheat, lemon, coriander, pepper, and soft butter notes from the Chardonnay. Delicious and funky.

DuffMan (10048) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle, shared at game night. Hazy pale yellow, huge white head that leaves thick sheets of lace. Aroma of pig manure and leather. Flavours of pineapple, leathery funk, and pepper. Bone dry. Fantastic.

hman43 (1429) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
It pours pale yellow with a white head. It has various aromas with pepper, some funk (earthly) lemon, coriander, light wheat, and hints of citrus. It has flavors of lemon, spice, pepper, coriander, citrus with zest, low wheat, low earth, and hints of vinous quality. It has a medium-light body with a tart dry finish. There is a fairly high amount of carbonation. Overall, the additional of brett with the combination of other elements makes this one of the best witbiers that Ive tasted. The elements are in harmony with each other and it has the right touch of tart with the dry finish.

reebtogi (6133) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 17, 2016
750ml corked bottle pours a hazy straw color with a generous white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon zest and coriander with some hints of oak and yeast. Taste is a spicy hop bitterness with a light lemon tartness and a fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a bold brew for the style, but balanced and tasty. Recommended.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4969) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2016
Bomber shared by Paul. Anchorage whiteout brett witbier 6.5% A very light gold with a filmy wisp of white foam. A wheaty lemon and spice aroma with a light ultra dry body and wheat, brett, lemon and green hops but very minimal witbier character. More an American wheat than a belgian wit but good.
