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.

Best wit iíve had yet. Aroma full of citrus, lemon, grapefruit and a hint of strawberry. Taste of the same but without the strawberry and with a strong feeling of white wine. The foam lasts long enough and the color is yellowish white and non-transparent. One canít really handle all the different tastes and aromas that he gets at the same time by this masterpiece beer.

In short: A complex and refreshing funky session wheat beer that defies categorization. Fantastic
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed six months after purchase. Bottle forwarded to me by oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott
The look: Partly cloudy yellow-straw color body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is truly farmhouse. It has a clear bright bretty character that is not too intense and has funny notes of parmesan cheese, lemony meringue, wet white wine barrel, moreÖ Taste is insanely refreshing but the beer does not compromise on complexity. Fresh slice of low-sweetness homem lemon pie with a nice meringue, plenty of fresh crisp wheat, kiwis and other exotic fruits, coriander, freshly squeezed lemon juice, nice white cheese, light notes of white wine, funk, astringent wood barrels. And I could go on an onÖ Body is juicy and with a lot of small tickling bubbles. One word that best describe all the flavors of this beer (an there are many) is ďbrightĒ. I LOVE each and every Anchorage beers but Iím really surprised that the Whiteout is currently my favourite. By style alone I would have suspected the Saison or maybe the Galaxy or the Tripel. But no, their wheat beer is my favourite. But with such Ďaliveí beers, a lot of it depends on when you drink them. This Whiteout is truly a desert island beer, certainly not the most intense beer out there, but so complex and so drinkable that I could imagine drinking only this beer for the rest of my life. Fantastic beer that I need to keep in stock at home

Bottle from SL. Hazy yellow pour, nice head and lacing. Aroma was bret, wheat, coriander. The flavor followed, really nice dry bret aspects, grapes and funk emerging too. Mouthfeel was full bodied for a wit! Enjoyable, up there with the better JP brews like it.

Smelled quite funky, not really wheaty; a nice light color. This is very good. Light yet strange and tasty. Donít know if I get oak, but certainly some funk. Different but would definitely drink again.

Sampled on 10/15/2011. This witbier pours a slightly hazy light yellow color from a 22oz corked and caged bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is cereal, spicy, fruity, yeasty and sweet. A medium bodied wit. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and floral. Lively carbonation. A touch of yeast and nice spicy throughout. A touch of brett and some funk as well. Finish is extremely dry after starting out on the sweet side. Excellent wit. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2012
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.

DoublEE (784) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2012
The beer pours a slightly hazy, pale straw-yellow body topped with a tall but fragile frothy white head that collapses upon itself leaving moderate lacing down the sides. Has a glowing, ghostly look to it. Aroma of hay, sweet wheat, lemon zest, spruce, oak, cedar, funk, and light tartness. Love it. Background has a distinct brett smell: mix of some funky barnyard smells with a hint of green apple sourness and oak as well. Lightly tart and quenching, finishes dry. Lemon pith, herbaceous notes from the hop varietal, smooth with a light spiciness that lingers, but subdued in the background. Reminds me more of a Saison than a Witbier. Citrus and wheat, tangy and quite drinkable. The Sorachi Ace hops really add nicely to the lemon profile. It finishes with a beautifully smooth vanilla oakiness. Light bodied, with a slightly sour nature that puckers the tongue. Overall though, this is a delicate feeling ale with mild carbonation. Overall, this is the most original take on the Witbier that Iíve tasted. I love Saisons so this oneís right in my sweet spot. Iím really impressed with this first Ohio offering from the Anchorage Brewing Company.

daje (2304) - NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends shared with esp0r and edvard, april 26th 2014. Hazy golden body, lively white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus fruits, barnyard, clove, oak and brett. Taste is slightly acidic with a bretty lemon and grapefruit taste, whitewine, apples, spicy yeast. Explosion of freshness! Funky and bitter aftertaste of fruit zest, grapes and peppercorns. An incredibly nice beer!

Travlr (11327) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 31, 2011
OMG! This one was a total surprise. Bottle at Paradiso Dupont, shared with RJ, Charles and one other dude. Cloudy yellow, medium white head. Aroma has serious barnyard funk and horse sweat, as good as any geuze Iíve had. Taste has harsh sourness, citrus, pepper, hay and salt. A total shock, and Avery unique combination. No idea what happens when this one ages, but I intend to find out. What a great choice for a first easy coast release! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle poured a bright golden in color with a thin but fluffy white head. aroma has some chardonnay from the barrels, pepper, yeast, and a nice sweet golden malted base. mouth feel brings on some brett, pepper, lemon skins, big chardonnay grapes, light spiciness, and a nice dry finish. interesting combination of grapes and barrel against the brett and yeast.
