Poured a clearish yellow with two finger head and nice lace retention on top of an aroma of spice and yeast, along with minimal citric notes and that brett is coming through. A touch of sweetness in this one for some reason, as the yeast is prevelant and helps make the beer fuller bodied and smooth. The spices and citric notes are there and the brett gives it a nice funky taste on the backbite which is pleasant. An interesting beer as the brett addition works well and is something I wouldn't have thought would work with a witbier, but it adds some complexity to beer without overshadowing the traditional witbier components (yeast/wheat twang. clove/corriander spices, lemon/citric tastes).

Two tasting cups while on a Black Country Bus trip: sorry if I took someone elses cup, but one wasn't enough to rate/review properly for me.

Pale, but bright urine colour with a froth of white bubbles.

Aroma was semi-sour white wine and musty yeast, throw in some lemon peel for good measure.

The taste a mixture of the smells with added spice notes along with a grainy hint.

Fine beer: sadly my taste buds were not too sharp by the time this arrived, in fact they might even have been a bit shoddy!

Hope I've done the brew justice.

A: Pours a very light yellow color, with a fizzy 1 inch white head. Very bubbly.

S: Extremely sharp, and slightly funky. Smells like tart lemons mixed with Chardonnay.

T: tart, peppery, and extremely dry. Lemons, peppercorns, and lots on vinous qualities.

M: Extremely light bodied with a very dry feel. Lots of sharp carbonation.

O: surprisingly drinkable. Not overly flavorful, but I find myself liking it as I drink more. Very sharp and dry, but crisp and refreshing at the same time. Not great, but better than expected.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass per the bottle's recommendation
A: Very pale yellow color with a one-finger head that quickly settles; good carbonation
S: The lemon from the Sorachi Ace hops come through quite strongly along with a bit of apple & Champagne yeast
T: Again some lemon, toast (again a bit Champagne-like) and some sourness from the Brett. Perhaps a bit thin though a lengthy finish
M: Light-bodied, pleasant carbonation
O: Well-made overall, nice complexity, I like how the Brett & Sorachi Ace hops interact with their unique characteristics
