Pours a clear golden with with a medium-high white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of fruits, leather and bandaid. Bretts galore. Taste is dry and carries some peppery flavors along with the same fruits you got on the nose. Body is low to medium and carbonation medium-high. A fun drink!

Bottle (750 ml) @ De Garde++ tasting. Shared by mathieuc, thanks!

Appearance: Hazy golden/orange with a frothy off-white head and some lacing.

Aroma: Bold brettanomyces with strong herbal notes, light pickles presence and earthy/mineral notes.

Taste: Big brettanomyces presence, quite herbal, oak, peppery notes, hints of pickles, good malt backbone and mild bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry and herbal finish.

Overall: Pretty good brett Belgian Ale. It definitely has the Anchorage signature, but it’s also similar to an Orval on steroïds. Tasty and drinkable.

mansquito (3743) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Some tiny beer store in Jamaica vermont: my bottle exploded the moment the cork cage came off so I had to mouth it. In any case it pours a light brown with a beige head. Aroma is yeast, brett, farmhouse funk, etc... Taste is nice and earthy and occasionally a bit sour but not so much. Alcohol is well covered and the body is nice and bubbly. Quite nice.

22oz bottle at home in London. It pours a Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a hazy amber beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is Bretty, barnyard funk with leather aspects as well. Flavor is light sour, funky and yeasty. Very nice drinkability, long, light sour aftertaste. Really well made sour beer by Mikkeller. Nice one!
