Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thick, frothy white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is lemon, brett, chardonnay, oak, cereal and biscuit malt, floral and citrus hops, and light funk. Flavor is citrus fruit esters, light sweet malt, faint hops, oak, sour brett, and champagne; crisp, dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 16, 2012
A - Hazy golden orange with a thin finger of frothy white head. Fades fairly quickly.
S - Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeast, coriander, sage, oak, vanilla, sourness, grainy malts, lemon zest, citrus hops, bit of funk.
T - Sour green fruits, tartness, lemon zest, Belgian yeast, oak, vanilla, coriander, sage, sweet grainy malts, some funk, and a touch of red wine grapes.
M - Medium bodied moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sour, tart, and funky finish.
D - Nicely balanced. The barrel adds some great character along with some good sourness and complexity. ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Beware, this exploded all over the place when we opened it, probably lost a good five ounces. Pours a cloudy golden with lots of head. Aroma is full of sage, with the barrels there in the background as well. Body is very lively, medium. Flavor is well balanced if a little bit piquant, somewhat earthy and herbal. Finish reintroduces the sage, as well as a bit of yeastiness. Not bad, but not sure why the ratings are so high. jcr (2726) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden body. Fizzy, white head. Inviting aroma of fruits, brett, spice, sage, mustiness, straw, lemon. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Dry and tart finish. Taste of citrus and spice along with light brett funky lacquer and grass. Clean malts. Different for a wit and more complex than most. Very nice. Thanks for sharing wnoble. budznsudz (583) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours clear golden with no head. The aroma is oaked chardonnay with light hints of fruit and spice. The taste is light and crisp. If I tasted this blind I would swear it was champagne. There is tart apple and light spice on the long finish. Nice beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 This one wanted to gush slightly. Golden yellow and clear. Spicy, fruity, musty, dry malt aroma. Flavor is dry spices, light bitterness and extremely dry. Nice. Thanks Rich! marcus (10559) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle consumed at City Beer. Pours clear golden with a modest off-white head and a winey aroma. There is a carbonated sour wheat flavor with what tastes like sage and a very dry finish. Much better than the typical witbier and positively affected by the brett. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2012

Cloudy yellow. White head. Very wity aroma with hints of exclusive soap. Light sour, medium sweetness. Very rounded for the style. Lots of tiny bubbles. Very pleasant. hopscotch (11180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours hazy amber with golden highlights and a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is a complex medley of soft funk, fuzzy fruits, sour cherries and white (instead of red) wine with undertones of sage and other spice-rack goodies. Full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and laid-back carbonation. Like the aroma, the flavor is a complex interplay of acidic, herbal and spicy notes flanked by pale malts that provide just enough sweetness to balance things out. Low bitterness. Tart, tangy, minerally finish. World class beer right here!
