3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaske: Lysegul øl diset med et lille skumhoved. Havde lignet en klassisk wit hvis der havde været et skumhoved. Duften er meget frugtet fra brett, men er samtidig en tand off. Lover ikke godt for smagen. Men der tager jeg heldigvis helt fejl. Super lækker kompleks smag, hvor både sorachi humlen, bretten og fadlagringen på chardonnay kommer til sin ret. Der er simpelthen smag fra det hele uden at det clasher. Eneste problem er at det bliver en tand saftevandsagtig, men på den gode måde. Er sgu helt pjattet med Anchorage og deres over the top syn på at lave øl.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very good. Clear gold with a bright white head. Light floral hops aroma. The flavor is crisp and dry with plenty of brett and funk. Not much wheat for a wit but I don’t mind. A nice session beer if you can afford it

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear gold with a nice white head and fizzy carbonation throughout the glass. Smell yields barnyard funk initially that quickly gives way to dry citrus, some light floral notes, subtle oak/woodsy notes, some residual sugary elements. Tastes of coriander, dry wheat, mild citrus, some oaky vanilla, some peppery splashes. Sophisticated with a reserved breaddy finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden with a disappearing white head. Aroma of brett funk and white wine, with notable orange peel and a touch of banana. Sweet fruity flavour with a refreshing tartness kicking in. Coriander is noticed in the finish

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is nice and funky, definite oak chardonay barrel notes, light wit, some lemon, barnyard. Interesting aromas on this one for sure. Very unique. Pours hazy golden yellow, nice fizzy white head and solid sheets of lace. Wit base beer notes, some chardonay citrus fruits, funky brett barnyard, some coconut here and there. Interesting take on a wit. Well carbonated. Light and fruity. Solid.

Light refreshing body with effervescent carbonation. Funky tart lemon, white grape, dry throughout, bit of oak, mellow whit spiciness yeast. Light, funky, refreshing...great barrel aged variation of a whit.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really really good and really unique. Nose is super bright...lemon, citrus, some wheat and yeast. Palate continues that lemon and citrus but then you get the bottle conditioned yeast, some grass and a lot of light dancing carbonation and the dry oakiness of the barrel aging. Super drinkable yet super full of flavor. The finish is very dry and oaky. Really interesting great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Location: 750 ml bottle from Buy Rite, 3/17/12
Aroma: It has a pretty interesting nose of wheat, brett, lemon, citrus, and wood
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy, unclear golden-white, and a bright white head and good lacing
Flavor: Tastes mid sweet, a fairly heavy brett component, a good amount of citrus, and a little wood
Palate: The body is fairly light, slightly smooth, a bit of a tingly feel, and a fairly heavy bretty feel
This was another great one from Anchorage. I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve tried from them. This was another good one. It had a nice feel, and the brett worked really well with the rest of the beer’s components.
