3.23/5 rDev -17.6%
A-Pours hazy dark straw color with an inch of undulating fluffy white head. Reduces very slowly, leaving specks and streaks of soapy lacing.
S-That signature DuPont funk. Lavender, white pepper, hibiscus, zested orange peel. Very appetizing.
T/M-This is freaking bizarre. Has the same earthy, herbaceous funkiness of the Foret Saison, but in the context of a witbier. The result isn't quite what I'd call a traditional witbier. Not as dry or crisp as the style typically dictates. There's a very light metallic off flavor mid-palate. The herbal profile doesn't come across as well as this as it does in the saison. The body isn't substantial enough to support all the flavors, and there isn't enough carbonation to separate flavors from one another.
O-An interesting experiment with mixed results.

2012 on the cork
A: A somewhat hazy, pale gold beer. pours with a finger of rocky white head with a good head retention.
S: There is a green glass beer, Saaz hops moderately-light skunked aroma at first that fades after a minute. A moderate wheat sweetness with moderate coriander and orange peel notes. A light earthy hops aroma.
T: Orange and spice are the more prominent flavors followed by a light bit of wheat malt sweetness. Some spice and fruit flavors from the yeast. There is a light hops bitterness and little in the way of hops flavor. The balance is about even with an off-dry finish.
M: A somewhat crispy, medium-light bodied beer with a high level of carbonation.
O: A average example of the style although it's very likely I've got an older bottle on my hand and a fresher sample would rate better.

More on the golden amber color than most Wits. Sweet malt greets the taste buds. Sparkly mouthfeel. No head to speak of but quite spritzy. Prickly carbonic taste. Acidic wheat flavor. Fragrant nose; flowery with a touch of caramel. Quite malty with enough sweetness to balance the tart. Faintly fruity.
This must be your grandfather's Wit. On tap in a tulip glass at Ocean Beach Pizza Port.
