Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a golden, glowing yellow color, slightly hazy, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells tart and funky, with some white wine, lemon, grapefruit, and pepper.

I'm not generally a huge fan of witbiers, but of course I'm gonna like a barrel-aged wild version of one. I get wheat, tartness, light horsey funk, lemon, grapefruit, light airy white wine, and pepper. Lots of stuff going on here. The funk has a sort of sweatiness that's hard to describe- you'd know it if you tasted it. It works well.

It feels slightly undercarbonated at this point- it seems like the bottle conditioning is not quite there yet. In about 6 months I think this would be essentially perfect. There is also a slightly watery finish here. Again, it looks like I opened this one a little too early. There's a crisp, and slightly sweaty mouthfeel.

This is a very interesting beer. It seems like in about 6 months or so it'll be perfect, but unfortunately, I believe a beer should be ready at bottling. Despite this nitpicking, this is still a pretty tasty beer.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Batch #3 June 2014

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of sheer surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves tiny specs behind.

S- Incredible Brett aroma springs from the glass bringing mild notes of green olive and lemongrass. Super funky barnyard, horseblanket, all that goodness.

T- There's an immediate tartness that quickly washes away to a clean wheat finish. Simple but extremely effective. So drinkable, so tasty.

M- Somewhat sharp, tight and dry. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- I don't know if I happened to crack this bottle at the right time or what, but this is amazing. I can't stop taking sips it's so damn good. So funky in the aroma and initial flavor but so clean in the aftertaste and mouthfeel. Absolutely exquisite.

More of a sour beer to me than a witbier. This beer has a ton of brett that lends funky barnyard, hay, and lambs wool aromas. Lemony and tart, with the classic wit spices playing their more traditional role. An interesting blend of styles.

Crisp, tart on the front, spicy yet smooth in the back. A well executed sour wit.
