Bottle at home. Pours clear intense brown, little to no white-greyish beige head. Funky fruit aroma; mango and peach, with some dried grapes (aka raisins), figs and plums, stewed forest fruits; quite a nice bouquet. Light body, a bit watery, nice oaky touches and subtle sourness. Very vinious but lacks body. Taste of a good fresh burgundy chardonnay; lots of burnt oak, sweet apple, slight balsamic vinegar touch. Would have expected a bit more dense body, but for the rest very subtle indeed. Nice collab of two beautiful American breweries!

Pours dark dark brown with a nice tanned head. Smell of tart berries, funk, barnyard, cognac, grapes, hints of toast, dark fruits and malts. Moderate sweet, very fruity, i find tart berries and funk, complex play with dark fruits, delicious stuff. Moderate bitter, some astrigent tannins, quite nice. Wow, a superb sour from two of the very best breweries. I liked this one a lot

Bottle shared @ Tasting. Murky brown color, average sized beige head. Aroma is lightly sour, tart, sour fruits. Tastes about the same, but a very balanced flavor. Starts out sour but it’s so incredibly balanced and fruity. Very nice this one!

dansac (113) - Loa Angeles, Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Slight letdown from Anchorage, considering some of the hype behind it. It reminded me of a big flanders, with heightened barrel notes. Very tart, prominent brett as with every Anchorage beer, and some bigger malts than usual. I personally like my sours a bit drier and ’cleaner’, so this was a bit excessive. Still, very nice.
