A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-ish color and a cloudy texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: An incredibly sweet-smelling aroma of citrus and some yeast as well.

T: You expect to find some fruit elements in a witbier, but St. Bretta takes this to a whole other level. Lots of citrus (orange, maybe a little lemon), yeast, the advertised brett, pepper, and cloves. A vibrant, light, and sweet flavor.

M: Highly carbonated beer with a prickly finish. Light-bodied.

O: An excellent Americanized version of a witbier. Likeable and easy to drink - provided you like sweet stuff.

375 ml bottle poured into a Cantillon balloon glass. Bottled 2014. Batch 2.

Appearance: Pours a somewhat pale yellow color with 2 fingers of a white head with good retention. Body is very hazy with quite a bit of visible carbonation.

Smell: Solid witbier base. Wheat, clove, peppery yeast, along with some bright citrus, pineapple and some light funk.

Taste: Follows the aroma pretty closely. Peppery yeast, clove, and wheat from the base beer along with orange, lemon, grapefruit, white grape, and with some lacto character coming through in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Very light but with a soft wheat like mouthfeel and relatively high carbonation. Finishes tart and mostly dry.

Overall: Another really good beer from Crooked Stave. Lots of flavor and incredibly refreshing. This is the perfect beer to sit back and enjoy on a hot summer day.
