Pours a mostly clear, light golden hue with a very slight haze. A thick, frothy head of off-white foam is incredibly well retained, leaving vertical columns of jagged lacing on the glass. The aroma is exactly as advertised, light and crisp wheat malt showing lightly sweet, with notes of lemon rind and white pepper. Dry, dusty brett imparts a bit of farmhouse funk. Flavors follow suit, mildly sweet and fresh with wheat grain, with a light candied sweetness and some dry, barnyard, horseblanket brett elements. Medium bodied, lively, and dry, the prickly carbonation intensifies the bretty, bitter lemon finish. Excellent witbier. Midnight Sun rules. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. pale golden beer with a whitish head. Tart, light yeast and light malt aroma. Wheat and spice flavor with yeast and a light tartness. Medium bodied. Yeast, spice, wheat, and a light tartness linger. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle via a trade with americanbrew. Pours with a huge white head over a milky yellow body. Aroma of light brett phenols, horse blanket, orange and lemon citrus. Flowery and perfumey. Taste is dry and flowery with orange peel, light brett and citrus. I could drink a TON of this stuff! Not quite a Boulevard Saison Brett or Jolly Pumpkin’s Wit, but it is still very nice. Fizzy and dry mouthfeel. blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
bottle, thanks to bman1113vr, hazy yellow with nice foam, spicy bubblegum aroma, flavors of good wheaty spices, nice beer SuzyGreenberg (1604) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2009
bomber - thanks frank!! pale gold with eggy white head; crisp lemons, brett, dough and grainy sweetness on the nose; soft and a little fizzy on the lips; get some orange peel, mild spice and some lemon cookies; texture is incredibility like and this brew is quite subtle; kind of the anti-MS brew; lovely faint haze and glow against the light; bone dry finish; complexity and varying brett flavors comes out as it warms; quite nice overall even for being on the light side and having some of the fruitiness zapped by the brett

Bottle from MaltOMeal at the August Hosuton Tasting. Thanks, Bill!ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours a deep, cloudy yellow with a nose of lemon zest, yeasty citrus, and cigarette smoke. Flavor is light zemon zest with a sweet and sour finish. Leaves a pleasant film as it travels along the tongue. Light and refreshing; I’d drink more.
Appearance: Pours out a crystalline, light yellow body with a tall, foamy, white head.
Smell: Light barley and wheat scents with a touch of lemon and spice and a positively congenial Brett character smelling only lightly musty wool dungarees and trodden hay.
Taste: Delicate tastes of malted barley and soft wheat with a mild, restrained sweetness to it. Squirt of acidic lemon juice. Faint background spiciness. Very tempered Brettanomyces funkiness within - just enough to give you a lil’ hint and some added complexity. Not much in way of hops or bitterness, really. Semi-dry, crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated.
Drinkability: Pretty likable! A light, refreshing witbier with a light, refreshing touch of Brett. The airy carbonation keeps things moving along at a nice pace. BrianK (200) - Livingston, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Not a fan at all. I feel like the brett chopped out all the residual sweetness characteristics of a witbeer leaving it a bit dull. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
