COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a variation on the classic Belgian Witbier style, but aged in French Oak Chardonnay barrels

Brewed with lemon peel, black peppercorns and corriander (sic).
Triple fermented - first in the tank with Belgian yeast, second in french oak Chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces, and finally in the bottle with a third yeast for natural carbonation.

Bottle. A- Sour, tart, lemons, citrus, vinegar. A- Pale yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Sour, tart, sweet, citrus, vinegar. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish. O- Prior to this I had the Galaxy White IPA. After this I am now convinced I do not like Anchorage. White IPAs and Witbiers are two of my favorite styles. Throw in this Brett shit and charge me an outrageous price for the bottle and I am not pleased. To me, the Galaxy and Whiteout tasted the same. Two different styles and both tasted like the same thing. A not so good sour. Big let down.

radiomgb (2521) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
750ml bottle from El Cerrito Liquor in Corona, California. Batch #3, June 2014. Clear light yellow in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma has some lemons, yeast, oak and spice. The flavour is of moderate citrus, fairly sweet, bretty, yeast, wheaty. Finishes with a light tartness, a little dry.

rodenbach99 (3617) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Batch #3 juillet 2014. Une robe jaune dorée pâle avec une mousse blanche. Un nez qui empeste le soufre et l’acide citrique. La bouche est acide, j’ai dit acide, c’est très acide, du citron. Il semble avoir une touche épicée. En finale c’est aqueux, les saveurs se dissipent rapidement. Une balle tombante comme celle de Dennis Martinez.

SlovakSniper (3986) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Dès le versement, mon verre dégage des odeurs d’œufs pourris. Ce parfum indésirable ne s’estompe pas entièrement… En bouche, je note une facette épicée à ce liquide qui goûte un peu le fromage et, minimalement, le citron. Au palais, j’ai la sensation d’un corps sans véritable colonne vertébrale. En finale, tout se passe très vite : c’est peut être une bonne chose après y avoir bien pensé. Batch #3. Juillet 2014.

Pours pale yellow and hazy. Thin white head. Lots of citrus and spice on the nose. Palate is the same with the noticeable brett. Short finish and thin body. Easy drinking.

Bule (1280) - California, USA - APR 4, 2015
750ml bottle pours a golden color without any head. Been cellaring this one for about 9 months and it's lost a lot of its carbonation. Seems better to drink fresher. Great Bret flavors coming through.
