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.

Pours a quite bubbly chalky white-golden with light white head. Aroma is funky-musty like wine and damp old wood and lemon peel. Dry with nice tropical fruitiness and a hint of musty wine and brett. It is very light yet complex and flavorful, very enjoyable.

(750ml bottle thanks to Adam C) cloudy medium gold yellow, no real head after pouring and settling. Nose of chardonnay, brett, tart, lemon, coriander, mild bugs, touch of oak, complex and delicious. Taste of lemon peel, brett, a little dry, chardonnay, oak, light sour bugs, an exceptional witbier. Medium carbonation, somewhat soda-like.

GenDV138 (3367) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Batch 3, June 2014. Clear straw yellow with about a finger of off-white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, herbs, some white wine, a bit of Brett. Tastes of citrus, funk, light wheat, white wine, light tart acidic notes, subtle herbs. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Nicely balanced and well done.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
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.

Weezel (239) - Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
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.

BeerandBlues2 (10785) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is fragrant earthy and barnyard yeast notes, Brettanomyces, light lemon notes, wheat malt and coriander with floral notes. Flavor is tart and acidic lemon, earthy and funky Brettanomyces, light hops and bitterness, wheat malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

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.

beertholomeus (1189) - California, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with white head. Yeast, spice, fruit, brett and white wine aroma. Yeast, lemon, brett, wheat, coriander, pepper and wheat flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Lemon and brett finish. Batch #3

HuskerTan (771) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - APR 23, 2015
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.

The flavour is of moderate citrus, fairly sweet, bretty, yeast, wheaty. Finishes with a light tartness, a little dry.
