3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw colour. No head. Aroma has brett, coriander, and sort of wheaty character. A slight tartness, but more crisp brett and fresh wheaty malt notes. The chard barrel lends a snappy quality to the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome white wine aromas that have tons of melon, lemon, and grassiness. Very pale straw color with little carbonation. Taste is delicious with ripe apples up front and the oak from the barrel smoothing things out. Very dry finish. Wish it had a tad more carbonation to make the flavor a pop a little more.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Whiteout has one of the best names and one of the coolest bottles you’ll ever see. Review over. Just kidding. Whiteout is pale and heady, as you’d expect. Aroma has citrus, spices, earthy Brett, and oaky Chardonnay notes. Flavor reveals savory spice, vinous fruit, lemon, orange peel, and of course, Brett. Despite all the complexity, Whiteout is soft and thirst-quenching. You definitely won’t notice the increased ABV. While this isn’t an orthodox Belgian White, it’s a damn good one.

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.
