Sampled with a good friend that managed to get several from this brewery. The aroma hints at wit but the flavor goes well beyond. Very creative. The Brett adds both funky and tart aspects making this a rich and complex beer while still remaining very drinkable. I wish I had a regular supply from these guys.

Awesome two-person tasting with Huzuhbendah last night who shared this awesome brew with me. Thanks Matt!

A: Poured a cloudy soft yellow color with tons of floating chunks of yeast and a slight white peppery head. Awesome!

S: If you could liquify sourdough bread and steep some Sour Patch Kids in it, this is what you'd get. The fresh filtered water essence was truly memorable.

T: This is what I'd imagine Saison Brett (one of my favs) to taste like if it had many, many years in the cellar.

M: Fluffy and delectable, acidic, but nothing that's going to remove enamel from your teeth or anything.

O: This was more of a Saison than a Witbier, but I'll take it.

Gusher alert. Served at cellar temp. Apparently, that was a bad idea.

The beer is hazy and light orange with a small white head. The aroma is nice, offering citrus, brettanomyces, coriander, floral hops, farmhouse yeast. Enticing. Tart and sour. Light and refreshing, citrus and brett blend beautifully. Lingering saison yeast and tangy citrus. A delicious beer. Glad to have more of this one.

375ml capped bottle, dated 2013, Batch 3. 100% brettanomyces "Whitebier". Seasonal citrus: blood oranges. Fermented in oak foeders.

A: Pours a hazy pale straw-yellow with a 1/2" white head which fades slowly leaving spotty lace. Some chunky yeast settles to the bottom of the glass.

N: Lemony citrus, yeast, grass/hay, herbal, horseblanket funk and barnyard, earthy with estery fruit.

T: Brett funk ala horseblanket, bright and light sunshine, hay/grass, herbal, with some bready and grainy notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and medium carbonation. Dry, orange zest and brett yeast finish.

O: Refreshing, easy drinking, yummy funk.
