3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Hazy pale gold shade with a large white fluffy head. Aroma: lemony, brett funk, white grape, white wine in general. Taste is honey, grape, apple, lemon, perfume. Lovely balance. Witbiers have never done it for me but anything Anchorage touches seems to turn to gold.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Considering the hype I was a little underwhelmed. Pours almost like a white wine with flimsy, soapy head. Aroma is dominated by peppercorns and coriander and that acidic sour quality of brett. Beautifully crisp and quite dry, bouncy palate like a sparkling white wine. Taste is lemon peel some sour farmy notes and again peppercorns. There’s an enigmatic sorachi-ace quality in mid-palate - some ginger and a little cardboard. Finish leaves a minty medicinal hue which is not to my taste.

Bottle shared by judyvv @ Van Moll Brewpub. Hazy pale yellow color, small foamy white head that diminishes very quick. Very nice aroma of fruits, lemon, lemonpeel, lightly brett. Taste is lovely: again very fruity, lightly brett, lemonpeel. Superb balance, smooth and suitable body, tickling carbonation. Oh this is a lovely beer indeed! Very nice!

Pours an yellow slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells sour, fruity. Tastes fruity, sour. Cant say much about it. Fizzy carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, grapes, yeast, a tad funky, some red fruits and malts. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Very pleasant mouthfeel, thin but not too thin. Medium body with average carbonation. Another great beer from Anchorage.

From 9/22 notes. Pours hazy light pale yellow gold into tulip. Nose is oak, funk, grapes, hint of tartness. Mouthfeel is bright, crisp and carbonated. Taste is woody, big barrel notes, grains, hay, citrus, lemon, buttery, oak, funk, white wine, grape, cheese. Finish is biscuity, nilla wafers, oak barrels. Super complex, the flavors in this can turn on a dime. Very nice.
