A very complex beer. Do yourself s favor and be sure this one is at least 45 degrees or more warm - any under and the flavors separate. That said, very interesting beer - crisp, earthy, and oaky make for a wild combo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

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 (5846) - 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 (4770) - 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.

ScoWRee (415) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours a pale golden color. Super big white foamy head. Not much aroma. Slight citrus aroma. Taste is very light. Slightly hoppy slightly lemony. I cant get a handle on this. I guess it might be a nice Witbier. Not my thing

poisoneddwarf (2330) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - MAY 27, 2016
750 ml corked and caged bottle. Aroma is funky brett, lemon, lotion, dusty basements, old books, floral, chalky candy. Pours extremely pale yellow with a thick soapy white head with great retention. Taste is dry with flavors of brett, lotion; I can taste black pepper, but dont think I would have noticed it without it being mentioned on the label. Likewise, I can pick out the chardonnay now that I know it was aged in barrels containing it, but Im not getting the oak itself. No coriander that I can tell, either. Its actually kind of bland. Well, it alternates between being interesting from the brett, to a watery blandness that Im not used to with well made examples of the style. Mouthfeel is champagne-level foamy. Its not bad, but its a bit of a letdown from the description on the label.
