Pours a carbonated honey color. Has a slight tart aroma with notes of Brett. Flavor resembles apple cider. Has notes of salt and Brett. Finish is a little sweet. Overall lacks a true sour flavor profile but drinkable.

I'm a bit mystified by the low scores here. The aroma is really quite exceptional, the flavor, etc does not quite live up to it but it's still very nice.

Mysterious and opaque. Kissed with a deliberate smidgen of carbonation.

The smell is full of witbier sweetness with a clear punch of sour that mellows the alcohol undertones.

The taste fulfills the scent. The low carbonation gives the beer a fuller almost velvety feel that gently unravels as the acidity comes on stage and takes the spot light. It's almost reminiscent of lemonade.

This beer was definitely brewed to be different and it doesn't try to be something it's not. I wouldn't seek out during a witbier craving but at the same time I would love to run into it again.
