4.55/5 rDev +18.2%
opened with a small pffft, fill line less than a half inch below the top of the bottle--if it wasn't undercarbonated it would have overflowed for sure. Did pour about a 1/8 inch head which dissipated to just a line around the glass fairly quickly. No bubbles from the bottom, it's like it's flat. But there was BIG orange/tangerine, lemon and funk and oak in the nose, I get it as I pour. Attractive straw-gold color, hazy. First sip TART. Tangerine, lemon-lime, oak, I'm not really picking up the pepper other reviewers get, but coriander I think for sure. (look at label, yep coriander--but rose hips, my palate didn't pick em up til I read the label, but definitely get the rosehips once I'm looking for em) As it warms, some melon? cross between honeydew and canteloupe I think. A very pleasant but not overwhelming or out-of-balance tartness continues throughout.
Despite the lack of carbonation it has a silky mouthfeel...almost seems to liven up when it hits your tongue.
I like this beer a LOT.
Reading other reviews I get the feeling this beer varies quite a bit batch to batch so: Label says what I'm drinking is Barrel Number 7743 (could be 7793) 1-6 and Bottle Number 1578 3/13.
Pouring the last 2 ounces releases the 1/8 inch of yeast residue in the bottom of the bottle. for these last two ounces, a chalky tartness is the primary sensation.

Pours a golden straw with a silky white head. Excellent lacing and retention.
Nose has manure, horse blanket, oak, citrus and tart yeast.
Flavor has soft fruity malts, sour yeast, oak and barnyard funk.
Crisp body is delicately carbonated. Well made ale from Trinity.

4.33/5 rDev +12.5%
Pours a cloudy, bright yellow body with visible yeast and a white head.
Lemon, flowers, and fruity, musty brett character.
Citrus upfront, with light floral notes, bitter orange peel, a refreshing acidity, dry oak flavor, and bright brett.
Creamy, smooth, and crisp.
Very drinkable, brett if mildy funky and enjoyable. Barely sour. Remarkably retrained and balanced. Don't know about the other reviews, but I was very impressed. This is one of the best Wits I've tried.

This looks a lot like orange juice when poured in to the glass. the nose is funky and asour .
There was virtually no carbonation on the bottle I had, but the sample I tried at epic beerfest did have carbonation. so maybe a bottling issue (maybe hit or miss) I do have several more bottles i will see if those have carbed up when I open them.
The taste is sour but not overwhelming.
Really a well done beer and I too do not understand the low rating on this beer.
I would love to have this available all the time.

Barrel#: TBB 1-6
Bottle#: 683 3/13
Bottle to HF stemware
A: Hazy golden color. Tiny thin layer of head that dissipates quickly. Minimal ring of head maintains around the glass.
S: Funk and lots of it. Tropical fruits, lots o brett, and some barrel come through. I love the smell!
T: Follows the nose pretty closely. Love the funkiness this beer brings. I get the fruit zest and the the brett and barrel. Nice and tart.
M: Could be more carbonated, but I don't think it minimal carbonation distracts much from the beer. A little thin and watery.
O: I can't understand why this is rated so low. I think this is a great sour and would drink it all the time if I could. A little more carbonation and it would be perfect.
