4.6/5 rDev +12.7%
Massive flowing white fluffy head. Brew is light orange with loads of yellow.
Bright farmy citrus aroma. Killer.
Stupid high carbonation. Sweetness is high(er). Bitterness is fluid and mellow. Lots of orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, mango, tangerine...Salty too. Solid.
This brew kicks serious ass. Crooked Stave is producing sheer awesomeness. Highly recommended.

Pours a very cloudy lemon gold with a large foamy white head from a gentle pour. Excellent head retention for this beer. The aroma had orange, lemon, wheat, citrus zest, and Brett.
Tastes tart with a light amount of sweetness. There is lemon, orange, citrus zest, wheat, Brett, and coriander. The Brett makes this one tart and refreshing Witbier.
KLight to medium bodied with modest carbonation. Has a tart citrus aftertaste. This is perhaps the most unique Witbier I have ever had, and I mean that in a good way.

Pours a very cloudy, bright golden banana yellow color with a half finger white head that quickly disappears. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.
Very inviting nose with an amazing earthy brett character that is perfectly integrated into the witbier notes. Musty, dry and grassy with peppery spice notes countered by bready yeast and light fruit esters. Hints of ginger and grains of paradise followed by citrus peel and pale fruit notes.
Lighter end of medium body with a nice dry, musty brett presence that's well integrated into the elements of the base beer. Not as exciting as the aroma suggests with subtle funk, earthy hop, grass and straw along with peppery spice, sourdough bread and light fruit notes. Some coriander and ginger along with banana bread, wild yeast, citrus rind and light fruit. Decent but somewhat of a let down considering the complexity and appeal of the aroma.

375mL bottle poured into a tulip. 2013 Batch #3
(A)- Pours a cloudy goldenrod color that produced a decent frothy white head. Good retention.
(S)- Bone dry with plenty of grassy barnyard Brett funk. Hints of orange and lemon peel.
(T)- Not quite as dry as the smell, but just as funky. Plenty of zesty but bitter orange, almost grapefruit-like.
(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Slightly sweet yet bitter with the awesome Brett funk.
(O)- Easily a great witbier with the Brett addition to mix it up. A good level of funkiness with the zesty citrus brings a nice feel to the beer overall.
