2012 bottled 4/8/13 batch 002 consumed 1/3/15. Make way for other beer in your cellar. Finish is off. Otherwise an ok Berliner Weiss note on a wit beer.

Poured from a cork & caged 750 mL bottle into a flared pilsner glass. Moderate hand. Bottled 2/12/2013, Batch #001. Made it home from Dallas, TX safe and sound in the ol' suitcase.

A: Light golden yellow with a pleasant cloudiness. 1-2 fingers of clean, white head. Good retention. Very light lacing.

S: Suprisingly tart and funky! Lemon. Brett. Coriander. Lightly floral. Light soap.

T: Initial tartness with a touch of sweetness transitioning to a very dry finish. Nice bit of funk pops up about half way and everything goes quite dry in a hurry. Crisp and clean with minimal aftertaste. A very light bitterness creeps in at the end. no alcohol presence.

M: Moderately high carbonation that suits the flavor profile well. Light body. Refreshing.

O: Like a gueuze that put the kibosh on the sour! Honestly, not at all what I was expecting, but damn if it didn't drink very well. I don't get much witbier, but as a gueuze you could do worse. Too bad I don't have another bottle to see how it ages.

The first thing you notice is the amount of carbonation this ale has, there is plenty-perhaps enough to fill the Empire State Building, which help it produce a massive head of bubbly soft covering and is a slight off white color. The aroma is pleasant, mild spice and citrus fruit come through, all mixed in with some floral and wheat smells. It’s light bodied and very crisp, this is a great refreshing ale that’s mildly tart as it hits your tongue and continues to be refreshing as it travels through your throat and swallow. Tart throughout, this ale also carries some nice spices, orange peel, and lemon zest are detected first followed by some wheat and coriander. This is one good witbier, very refreshing and very enjoyable.

Bottle into a tulip.

Straw-gold, hazy and opaque. Two big fingers of sticky, pillowy head.

Sweet pear, lemon, orange blossom. Subtle vanilla. Green and bright.

More barrel in the flavor. Green oak, hint of vanillin, white grapes. Lemon peel, a subtle Brett funk and gentle tartness. Light, refreshing. Good stuff.

Fluffy body. Light, whipped. Tiny bubbles, like merengue. Smooth. Lactic tang sits on the sides of the tongue between sips. Soft, lemony bite.

Tasty, mad refreshing. Barrel character is just enough, nice that it doesn't overpower this delicate beer.

Bottled 2/12/2013

Pours out a hazy golden colored body with a fluffy tight white bubbled head that is just fueled by a mass of bubbles that fill the glass. Pouring into a Duvel glass is probably the wrong call on this highly carbonated beer.

Wine with some oak barrel seems to sit slightly above the citrusy wit beer base. Slight tart character. Interesting and inviting.

Plenty of witbier here. Heavy wheat and citrus qualities. There is some spice and a touch of tartness as well. Gets a little bready. I was hoping for more barrel/wine character here.

Light bodied and heavily carbonated off the bat but cools down over the course of drinking a 750. It washes away quickly.

Easily the most expensive witbier I’ve come across which makes it hard to spring for it again especially without as much wine as I was hoping for. It does seem like it would be easy to overpower a wit with barrel and they want to keep it balanced, but a touch longer in the barrels would set this off right.
