Before reviewing I'll state my summation of this beer: pretty good, thought the barrel aging (not sure of the exact name of process) added a little bit of extra tartness and smoothness to beer, real similiar to the regular De Glazen Toren. Poured a clear golden body with minor head and lace. Aroma has some classic witbier notes like citric fruit and spice and there's a sour edge to the beer. Similiar to smell, tge beer is light bodied and smooth, easy to drink, with that pronounced citric and yeast/wheat twang with strong carbonation. Smoother than most witbiers but also has some really tart, sour, elements as well, almost white wine-ish, and finishes with a sour edge. Very nice beer to relax with.

On tap at GBD in DC. Part of the Zymatore project, this version of the beer was aged in Calvados (brandy) Barrels.

Light in color with a very white head. The aromas, although not too strong, were of tart lemon and apple. The taste is what really made this a great beer. There was a refreshing tartness that blended with a lot of rich complexity from the barrel aging...some oak and liquor.

This was described as an 'Imperial Witbier.' I'm not usually a big fan of wheat beers, but other than the light color, I never would have guessed this was a wheat beer.
