The Bruery Orchard White Belgian Wit.

Amazing. I think I taste Brett which makes sense since they make many Brett Saisons. Their beers are phenomenal and I wish I could make beer like Orchard White. It has everything-perfect. That's my "stuck in a desert/island" scenario beer.

They just won two golds at the World Beer Cup. One in the experimental category, and another for their fantastic Flemish Red, Oude Tart.

I just had their "Two Turtle doves" last week, and it is excellent as well.

Edit: pretty nice beer, though.

I'm going to have to say that I did not enjoy the Orchard White. For the most part I don't enjoy any of their brews. The Saison Rue and Saison du Lente are really nice as was the Oude Tart. Berliner Weisse was pretty good. I don't enjoy most of their other beers because they are either way underattenuated and/or undercarbonated. That or I just don't care for the beer. To each their own though.

I guess I'm wrong about the brett, since you know. It's odd, cause I have yet be able to definitively pinpoint the flavor in a beer. I can sense it light years away in a wine (partial brett in a wine can be awesome/earthy, much more can taste like horse crap and ruin your whole winery...a serious problem in the industry).

I did taste the two Saisons as well mentioned just above and also the Rye which was pretty mind blowing. Reaally good.

That is the extent I've tasted. I liked Orchard White better than the two Saisons. It kind of tasted more like a Saison in my mind, but what do I know.

Yeah. I can see liking Orchard White more than the saisons. I'm lucky enough to be able to get most of their beer here whenever I want it. They're almost local. And I can see how not everyone would like what they make. They're definitely a niche brewery.
