750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head settles to a ring and leaves some light lacing. Big fruity aroma with lots of mango, light brett, some oak, lemon, pear, and apricot. The taste has a light initial sweetness with mango, apricot, some spiciness, and a bit brett earthiness. The finish has a decent bitterness. Medium-light body. Low carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

MartinT (8127) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Tantalizing floral, citrusy hops bloom alongside this creation’s peppercorns and biscuity brettanomyces, as coriander and wheat slowly take hold of the flavor profile.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A fluffy head of foam tops the misty pale blond.
-This is yet another superbly aromatic brew from Anchorage. Wow. I guess it can be offputting for someone not in the mood for such a bouquet, but I don’t see how one cannot be impressed by the elegance and complexity of this perfume.
-Effervescence is intense yet soft at the same time.
-This is nearly as drinkable as a Witbier.
-The barrel-aging job is nicely done.

Bottle.

Wittales (646) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Appearance was hazy pale gold with a diminishing white creamy 1 finger head, spotty lacing throughout. Aromas was sweet biscuity malts, then fruity barnyard funk with grapes, melons, lemons and spice.The esters of the bretts are the real stars, wonderful complex goodness. Taste was sweet malt, floral fruity herbal yeasts playing off the mild piney citrusy hops,but more like a stronger tripell than IPA. Palate was smooth champagne like carbonation with medium body. The glorious friuty smooth average length finish is a winner. A wonderful Belgium IPA...

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold with a big white head, excellent retention/lace. Aroma of melon, citrus hops, brett, funk, oak, coriander, light clove. Taste is moderately bitter: big melon hops, citrus, dust, earth, coriander, medicinal notes. Palate is soft, creamy, average carbonation, lightly bitter funky finish. Really interesting.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
Very pale. The aroma has lots of brett, fruity notes, and lightly orangey character. Mellow with spices and a hint of coriander. Quite hoppy, with herbal bitterness and coriander spiciness. Fun beer, not a lot of malt, but a tasty idea. On reflection, this really does need a little more malt. Gotta get to the bottle early I guess, before the brett chews up too much sugar.

Opaque yellow with a thick white head. The nose is dominated by the dry hops and hints of coriander and brett. Medium bodied, Champagne-like mouthfeel and a strong grapefruit note. Clean finish.

Bottle pours light golden with a white head. Aromas are funk, fruit and hops. Taste is funky, citrus with a dry peppercorn finish. Overall another great one by Anchorage.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw with a beautiful four finger head. The nose is decidedly belgian with hints of spice, coriander and lemon. The beer has much more hop presence then your typical Belgian, but the yeasty funk keeps it true to style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A - Pours a clear golden yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some thick lace. S - Aroma is a mix of citrus and tropical hops with some Belgian yeast esters, light fruit, pepper and other spice, oak, and some funky Brett. T - Starts off with some citrus and tropical hops with some grapefruit flavor and some spices and Belgian yeast esters. Through the middle some oak, funky Brett, and bitterness come through alongside a bit more yeast esters. The finish is a mix of citrus and tropical hops, light spices, funk, oak, and some bitterness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and lightly spicy finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice White IPA. The spices and the Wit yeast really compliment the Galaxy hops nicely. The Brett also adds some nice complexity.

Another great beer from Anchorage, who are starting to become one of my favorite brewers. This pours a hazy yellowish color with a nice white head that fades to a patchy thin layer. The aroma is quite citrusy, showing lemon and mango. Notes of dust and funk join in with lots of white wine. Very light pine. This is fizzy in the mouth at first, before the hops dry it out in the finish. A touch of bitterness but nothing extreme. The flavors mostly mirror the aroma, offering plenty of citrus, bretty funk, and french oak. Some grassy notes too with straw, and grape. Certainly a unique IPA but that’s totally expected if you’ve had any of their other offerings. Very nice beer. Perhaps not quite as amazing as a few of the others but we’re splitting hairs here.
