UPDATED: MAR 2, 2019 Acquired at Gerrard’s Market for $15.99, The Tide and Its Takers is a triple with Brettanomyces crafted by Anchorage Brewing Company.
The air yields yeast, chardonnay, funk, vanilla, and lemon as you drink. The appearance is a hazy gold with a low white head. The alcohol content is 9%.
Lemon is soft and sours the mouthfeel along with a latent acidity. Chardonnay accentuates the sour sensation and compliments the lemon. Belgian yeast gives the complexion a light creamy tone. White grapes offers a wholesome white wine touch to the mouthfeel.
Vanilla is sensible with the yeasty tone. Brettanomyces yeast creates a faint funk to the comprehension and fully experienced in the slightly dry finish. Oak is tangible with the chardonnay. Styrian Golding and Saaz hops bring out the lemon and white grapes characters.
The Tide and Its Takers is an excellent triple. The Brettanomyces funk, light lemon, and chardonnay culminate into a heavenly beer. The chardonnay barrel aging is the star as the funk plays second fiddle. I enjoyed this brew a lot. Dive into this beer and let the tide overcome your senses.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2019 On keg at the Hanging Bat.
Appearance - amber with some lacing.
Nose - this is very Flemish red/brown. Woody, funky sour with slightly vinous edge to it.
Taste - more wood, vinous sour thing and general funkiness.
Palate - tangy sour and long. Tight in texture.
Overall - very nice. No way this is an Abbey Tripel, mind. mR_fr0g (17782) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2019
Keg at the bottle shop druid Street. A light hazed golden orange coloured pour a fading white head. Aroma is bug solvent alcohol, musty funk, white grape. Flavour is tangy canned pineapple, musty funk, grape, oily, paraffin, pithy lemon and some grapefruit. Ok. Nout special. Little woody oxidised white grape.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2019 On tap at hopaholic. Hazy yellow colour small white lacing. Nose is fermented, bretty, lightly acetone. Taste is low bitterness, low sourness. Light acetone in the taste as well. Nice rotyi and still tripel like, shame its a bit solventy. Oakes (22235) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2019 Bottle, Legacy. Bit hazy, thin head. There's a lot of brett on the nose, nice floral accents, and still a touch of that pale malt left over. Soft pale malts, light brett - maybe other bugs? The palate seems so easy-going. fiulijn (24074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2019
Corked bottle from The Gull, North Vancouver
Hazy blond colour with no head. Strong smell of acetone, light fruit. Good body strength, moderately sour, it definitively has some acetone, some spicy yeast character, some piney hops.
Good flavour, but it's also flawed (acetone).
