Wit the Funk

The Bruery (Placentia, CA)
"Wit The Funk is crafted with tradition in mind. First we brewed a classic Wit with orange peel and coriander that’s fermented with a combination of yeasts, Brettanomyces and our own house mixed culture. Next the beer is aged to final maturation in Terreux’s Foeder Forest in a combination of American and French oak. The result is a winning combination that’s fresh with subtle complexity, balancing the classic, spiced and fruity characteristics of a Belgian-style Wit with the soft – and wild – touch from its time in the oak. No kettle sours here. Sure, it takes longer, but it’s worth it."

Uh, no thank you.
I would normally not try a beer of this style but based on reviews I thought I'd give it a try.
Put simply ... it's not beer. Maybe a "hard seltzer" but certainly not, in my opinion, beer.
Not undrinkable, just not "beer".

ABV 5.4%
