hermanw7 (29) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle from De Molen Beershop. Appearance: Gold, with a medium white head. Aroma: A lot of cheese when just poured into the glass, which diminishes quickly. lychees and other exotic fruits, lots of brett obviously. Palate: Medium body, leaves me with a dry mouth. Not sure what to think of it. Interesting experiment maybe, but not a winner.

Bottled @ Zeebra #2, small sample. Hazy yellow color, medium frothy head. Aroma has funk, brett, citrus, slight spicy notes. Slight bitter, bit sweet, hint of sour. Quite dry in the finish. Lovely farmhouse tripel.

Original tripel. Has a nice fresh sour touch due to the brett, The chardonnay aging gives the beer a smooth fruity edge. Good one.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of the Brett light funkiness, some light spices, pale and caramel malts, a little bit of light fruits, and some hints of oak. Flavor the same with a great blend of everything. Average texture. A really cool beer.

750 ml bottle
A rich tripel with a sour twist has aged well although in hindsight I would not have waited quite so long. I would be interested to see how a non-bretted version stacks up against other tripels as a benchmark.

Aroma / Appearance - The rich head is the color of aging newsprint. A light coppery base is bright underneath. Yeast, powdered sugar, candy canes, and fruit (specifically apples and lemons) sparkle like a sweet glaze.

Flavor / Palate - Yeast, powdered sugar, and lemon crisp tickle the tongue. A delayed blast of dry malts holds the profile together until the semisweet finish. Other than an odd taste of baby powder here or there this is a nice release. If not so spendy I’d consider buying a few more Anchorage bottles.

750 ml bottle; batch 2 Nov 2012. This one only spent one month in my garage, so it’s a bit strange that garage, so a bit strange that it sat on the store shelves for so long. The result is that the brett has had full time to develop -- not necessarily a good thing for this particular style.

Pours into my Koningshoeven goblet a beautiful orange-gold with a small and short-lived white head, microbubbles rising from the sides early but settling down soon enough. The aroma is absolutely divine - 9 or maybe even 10 - with a lot going on. Sweet oranges and moscato over chardonnay oak. Hints of grapefruit, mango nectar. And then the funk and must: the one moldy clementine going soft in the bottom of the fruit bowl. The flavor doesn’t quite rise to the high bar set by the aroma, but it’s still good. A bit more sour than the aroma initially suggests, canned pineapple juice, Sorachi ace lemon, brett coming on hard late with bitter walnut husk and covering over residual sweetness in each sip, aided and abetted by a modest hit of grapefruit pith hops. Fascinating to try a brett-driven tripel and remarkably good -- Anchorage doesn’t disappoint -- for what can only be seen as a bold experiment. Yet a tripel may not be the best match for the strong brett profile, and in the end the lacks the alchemy that of the Anchorage white IPA.
