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.

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

angelkostvo (609) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2014
Pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma of white wine, wet wood, dough, citrus, basement aromas. Taste is quite complex, slight sweet, slight sour, a bit bitter. Light body, slick texture, average carbonation. Very interesting , I like it a lot.

Ontape (298) - Valley Village, California, USA - JUL 23, 2014
March 2012 bottle. Pours clear gold carb that fades quickly. Aroma has an almost cloying quality that is not immediately identifiable to me, possible the brett or a combo of the brett and Chardonnay? It’s almost like coconut. Taste is less unusual with lemon, pepper, oak. Lightly tart. Pretty good.

Bottle thanks to Rick. Pours a cloudy yellow with a frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is belgian yeast, oak, and clove. Thin mouthfeel with nice citrus, clove, brett and nice dryness, very good.

Yellow hazy, white head. Smells of white wine, orange zests, spices and funk, some fruity esters in there. Moderate sweet, quite fruity, nice funky brett, some wine acids, pepper, some orange zests as well. Moderate bitter finish. Very nice take on the wit style. Anchorage sure makes thing their own way

Torrefacto (547) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 14, 2014
Color oro pálido límpido con espuma blanca ligera. Aromas fresco de fruta , uva, limon, pimienta, genjibre y hierba. En boca es ligera y muy refrescante, la burbuja pica y los sabores son ligeramente ácidos y afrutados que dan paso a un leve toque de brett. y acaba con un amargor seco muy equilibrado. Riquísma.
