4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, end December 2012.
This is the most complex fragrant and tasting beer that I have ever had and I love it! The first thing that hits is the white wine barrels, then an incredibly well blended mix of hops, sweet fruits and a slight brettyness that fits so well in there. And that’s just the aroma. The taste is simply amazing, sweet, sour, bitter, complex! For every sip a new layer appears, the white wine is there all along, grapes, hoppy freshness, you defenitely don’t taste the 100 IBU’s or the 9% alchohol. The brett is very well blended with the wine and hops and gives it almost and avocado fatness, while linking with the hoppy bitterness, giving it an olive oil’ish bitterness on the side.
My brain can’t really keep up with all the tastes I get out of this amazing brew, but they just keep coming.
On my top three of beer experiences, maybe even the best..
Worth the money!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy golden with a big white head and sticky lacing. Tropical fruity - pineapple, mango, mandarins - some grass notes, biscuit lemon zesty, white pepper, and doughy aroma. Taste is lemongrass, dough, weedy, white pepper, herbal, lightly alcoholic, orange peel, and marmalade with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty good, but not as good as some of Anchorage’s other offerings.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is Belgian yeast and brett. Medium mouth with strong brett and honey, with light sweetness, hides alcohol well, very good.

this beer reminds me so much in every way of the orval trapist ale. This is also brewed with brettanomyces. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from a 2012 batch. Pours a clear golden shade with a dense, pillowy white head. First up on the nose are some peachy hops that have been waiting two years to escape. Then Chardonnay plays in. Grassy and floral too. Taste is lemon, lime, tangerine, white grape. Malt is balanced really well. The barrel really does wonders for it, but I’m not sure if the whole Belgian aspect comes through. The brett hasn’t taken over as much as I expected. Very nice but I think I’d prefer a young bottle.

Aroma of peaches, yeast, light spice, light alcohol.
Flavour of Brett, yeast, candied fruits, peaches, sweet.

Oh my god, this is so good. Incredible balance, unreal.

"nice blend of funky brett and a s@@@load of hops. citra hops stand out, among others. belgian yeast, brett, and hops make this beer dry as a bone, but intensely flavorful and smooth all at the same time. just as i thought their beers might taste the same, this one stands out a bit."
