Bottle from Ryan, nice golden orange pour with a very thin white head. Aroma of Brett funk, nice spice in the aroma finish. Also has some nice woodiness and some nice grapes and vinous character. Taste is very Brett forward, light sour, crisp wine flavor and super nice drying finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

September 2, 2013 - bottle from Whole Foods. Orange pour with nice amount of head and lacing. Aroma was spice, brett, wood and red wine. Taste starts fruity, moves into the spice and wood, and finishes with the brett and red wine.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma has grapefruit and orange citrus, Brett, oak, vinous notes, big floral and herbal hops, spices, funk with some moderately sweet malts. The flavor has big floral character, with grapefruit, oak, Brett funk, herbal, spices, and some sweet and bready malts. Nice bitterness and dry at the finish. Medium-bodied. I always enjoy the Anchorage beers, but the price is a touch above what I would like to pay.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours hazy blond/amber with a finger white head. Not as carbonated as one would expect. Smell is JUICY AS FUCK grapefruit, orange, mango. Sweet. It smells like a tropical fruit ipa. Taste is sweet, mellow, citrus and tropical fruit. Kiwi, lime, slightly tart, hoppy, peaches and berries. Super refreshing, amazingly drinkable, none of the alcohol shows up. It’s truly incredible. A work of art.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle into a goblet. Pours hazy gold with a persistent, light and foamy white head. Spicy, bready, lightly tart aroma. Taste is bready, very pleasantly tart, perfect amount of brett funk. Very noticeable barrel characteristics, from fruit to oak. Nice crisp, dry finish. Easy drinking, very refreshing.

Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 3, 2013
Spritziger Antrunk, in dem die Kräuternoten hinter dem Bretthervorschauen. Deutliche Hefenoten, würzig säuerlich werdend. Die verschiedenen Kräuternuancen sind harmonisch, das Bier wird komplexer, passend trocken. Spritzig, zum Ende dumpf, die Hefigkeit ist dunkler. 12/12/10/12/11/12

750ml bottle that I shared with my friend, Keelan. These Anchorage beers aren’t cheap but if the rest are like this one, I am up for moer. Orange-yellow color, small but visible head and a bit of lace. The nose is really incredible in how intriguing it is. I knew right away I liked it but I just have to keep inhaling away to try and figure out what I smell. This beer sets the standard for complex aromas. Its sort of perfume, candy, a touch of brett hiding in the back, slightly earthy, slight touch of alcohol. After reading the bottle it came to me. It’s the rose hips. The taste is pretty damn crazy too, funky with sweet, sour, and bitter all in equal portions. Unique. Surprisingly pleasant. This one is fit for a very special occasion.

Palme (3591) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2013
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a light blurry deep golden one with a small just off-white top. Fantastic aroma on this one. It’s really fresh, lots of citrus, small white berries, and raspberries? Tart bretted raspberries. Lovely aroma. Lots of brett and subtle acidity in the flavor. The tart raspberries has been replaced with white or even green gooseberries. The brett is dancing on the tongue. Zesty and acidic finish and aftertaste. A really refreshing one. Want more. 04.05.2013

This beer blew me away. Tons of flavour - some funk, red wine barrels are apparent, spice, fruit. Alcohol is well hidden. Another winner from Anchorage.
