Pours a cloudy bright yellow straw color with very little head. A thin ring of white foam wraps around the edges of the glass.
The aroma is tart sour citrus with a bit of floral and yeast.
The taste is even more bold and rich that the aroma. Big blast of tart lemon citrus. Some earthy farmhouse type flavors with yeast and a touch of oak in the finish. The tart citrus flavor is the big player here and is very refreshing and enjoyable.
Light body with a high level of carbonation. Champagne like mouth feel that fits the style perfectly. A bit of dryness on the finish.
Overall, an amazing beer. Perfect balance and in both the aroma and flavor. An amazing tart flavor that is drinkable and enjoyable. This is a must try beer if you like the sour tart style beers. Try one.
Pours extremely cloudy with minimal white head that quickly becomes nothing more than a ring.
Aroma is tart most of all. Hay and lemon add accent. Brett add a nice floral level of complexity.
Taste is very interesting. There is a delicate tartness that rides alongside light malts. They don't take turns but fight the taste buds for favor. Tartness is up front becoming a bit more acidic towards the finish.
Light, which it needs to be for the delicate complexities to shine. Fine carbonation adds just the perfect touch.
Probably one of my favorite witbiers that I have had the pleasure of tasting. This would be a perfect beer for the summer. Enjoy!
Look: Straw in color, extremely hazy. I thought a wit would be... less hazy.
Aroma: Tart. You just know this beer is going to have a snap to it.
Taste: Tart, sweet. I have to say.... the tart is up there, but it quickly fades and that doesn't leave a burn that can turn people off. Delicate was tossed out as a word. I agree. Light, crisp, delicate, but complex. Oak aged doesn't contribute an overt oak flavor, but I would say that oak "smooth" element brings it together. I would call it more lemon than orange, and I don't get the coriander, but I dig this beer.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
