Poured from a cork and cage 750ml bottle. Batch #4 June 2015 bottling.

Pale yellow golden body, a full light bubbly head of bubbles that waned down to a thin line along the edges of the glass. Constant bubbles rising from the bottom to the top.

Picking up on the coriander, bitter orange peel, and of course that Brett funkiness.

Decent witbier flavors of coriander and orange and lemon with a spiciness on the end from those black peppercorns. Some oak thrown in; there is also a subtle amount of sweetness as well.

Light mouth feel; dry clean finish and the fizzy carbonation is nice as well.

Love the flavor with this beer, a real treat. Nice light bodied beer with a ton of well balanced flavors.

750ml bottle - $15.00 at Tasty Beverage Company in Asheville, North Carolina.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow body with noted clarity and a near nil, thin white head.

Smell: Harbors a scent of shredded crustless bread, old lemons-n-limes for a soft citrus nature and a fair amount of buttery white wine with a vein of mild, salty funk.

Taste: Very minor maltiness, only hinting a little hay-hewn cracked grains. Very minimal sweetness. A little lemon, a little lime and a sip of white wine giving a bit of buttery oakiness and subtly minerality. Slight albeit growing spiciness settles on the tongue, hinting at the peppercorns and earthy coriander. A bit more floral, citrus on the back-half. Drying, floral with a touch of orange juice on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Lightly carbonated.

Overall: An easy-drinking, albeit less than typical witbier. Though, for one's money, you'd be just a well served by a Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca.

A really nice, refreshing beer. It pours a light straw color with a white head. The spices come through nicely and it has just the right amount of carbonation.

Very happy with this beer. Nice funky flavour with oak, lemon and a touch of spice. Orange and coriander. Dry Bretty finish. Quite fizzy, which is fitting for the style. Refreshing and the Brett adds a great twist to a witbier.

A bright yellow glow with chunky haze besets the tulip. Aroma was substantial brett, wine barrel, citrus, lemon, almost spruce like tree vibe.

Super tart and sour, spice rack is way behind in the flavor, oak contributions, dry. Good tart tang on this one, one of the best witbiers ever, prolly the best. This and bottleworks XII baby.

A - Pours a clear light yellow color with very thin white lacing, moderate and steady carbonation.

S - Lightly bready, funk, white grapes, and oak.

T - White grape chardonnay, oak, and tart/tangy funk from start to finish. Also... pears and green apple come through as the beer warms.

M - Light medium body, very dry finish, a lot of soft but sprightly carbonation on the tongue.

O - This is always an enjoyable beer and a nice palate scrubber.

I absolutely love this brew. Definitely needs to be more barrel aged Wit beers. It's a delicious style for sure.
