Tennessee

4.38/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip.

A. Subdued spice. Pepper

A. Light golden. Clear when poured from a rested bottle. Thick slightly off white head that persists.

F. Beautiful mix of mild sourness, tart wheat character along with some very mild barnyard flavors from the the Brett. This has been described as what a Belgian White would have tasted like in the past. If that's true than our elders were lucky!

M. Silky with a nice tang/crispness from the higher carbonation.

O. A great beer. Highly drinkable and awesome. This is the type of beer I am always wishing I had more of. The availability at Whole Foods is awesome with this low volume specialty producer making it possible for me to get this special beer even in TN.

3.86/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This pours a cloudy orange yellow with a 1 finger head of foam that shrinks quickly. Lacing, yep.

Coriander, clove, banana, some bubblegum...pretty smelly, err aromatic. Hey is that some Brett in there?

It tastes like someone squeezed a fresh orange into my glass of this beer and then threw a blanket in it. A horse type blanket. The coriander and clove are there but that orange and Brett flavour is killing it. In a good way. I could drink a couple back to back.

The body seems to be medium at times but mostly light. Plenty of carbo.

A nice tasty Wit, for sure.
