3.98/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

750 mL bottle, pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a very clear, hay yellow. Very aggressive carbonation and foam on the pour, but the beer is light enough that is dies down. Limited lacing and head retention.

Smell - Mouthwatering! Beautiful notes of coriander and herbs...light notes of hay and barnyard as well.

Taste - A well done wit, with a light, balanced crispness. A tart note is in there that I like, mild but noticeable. The hay notes come through as it warms, and the coriander as well.

Mouth Feel - I scored it a perfect, and it is well done. Carbonation is not as overwhelming as I was worried from the initial pour. Clean, crisp, and wonderfully balanced.

Drinkability - Very tasty and smooth through and through. Would not mind having several over a span of a hot day.

Poured into my tulip at Novare Res. Ordered as part of my uprising.

The beer is pale with a dense white head. The head slowly fades with a nice sheet across the top and more dense bubbles at the edges.

The nose is almost tart as a slight brett nose. While the notes of a typical wit come in, yeasty, spicy it is the brett character that peaks my interest.

The taste is an average wit, sweet yeasty and dry, however the brett funky and slight tart flavor make it shine, very nice.

3.88/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Hazy yellow color with a thick four finger head with great retention and leaving laces.
Slightly sour aroma, like a light Lambic, with lemon notes and a hint of coriander.
Refreshing and tart Wit, with predominant notes of lemon, hints coriander and light condimented. I could swear there is some Bretta or lactic in there. Mildly dry and acid aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation and an acid sensation.
Delicious Witbier, very refreshing and light but far from boring. Almost funky. Worth trying.

Appearance: Cloudy; pear colored body with a good-sized head

Aroma: Citrusy notes (lemon); slightly hoppy

Taste: Tart on the start; tangy lemon hit in the mid; finishes slightly dry; ok beer overall, but not my favorite. Not much of a beer flavor.

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
