Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
750ml bottle. Opens with a real pop. Pours a pale gold with loads of fluffy white foam. Aroma is heavy on lemon, sour orange and bubblegum. Some really crazy wild notes in the aroma. Lots more crazy citrus character in the taste. The barrels provide a nice presence and those peppercorns keep things interesting. Soapy, floral hops rear up too. There’s so much going on here it’s unreal. Does it come together perfectly? Maybe not quite, but it’s a stellar effort and really drinkable. Anchorage have really impressed me. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2013

Bottle on great Friday! Pours a yellowy golden with nice white head. Aromas of yeast, herbal, and the typical Belgian yeast smell. Taste is tropical fruits, some sour tartness. Really creamy. Great beer

75cl bottle. It pours hazy pale yellow with a huge soapy white head. Actually, this beer exploded on me and the cork flew in the sky as soon as I loosened the cage. Huge gusher as well. Not tumultuosly, but inesorably gushing until you reach south of half the bottle. Prepare some empty glasses around! Anyways, back tro smell: divine. This is just amazing. Hops, citrus, orange peel, brett, funk, black pepper, violets, white wine. Great. Taste is nothing less, with a great complexity and yet refreshing. White wine, oak, hops, citrus peel, orange zest, flowery and peppery, brett and funk, farmhouse character. Outstanding. Medium mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Overall, distinct, complex, refreshing. Close to perfection in a bottle.

Bottle shared at Micro Bar, ReykjavikCrit (3996) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours quite pale hazy with a big white head. Smells of funk, wheat, hops and spices. Moderate sweet, quite musty, bone dry, alot of brett and regular yeast flavors. Medium bitter, resins in the finish. Quite brett infused, the brett has taken over my bottle. I can really find alot of wit and ipa tendensies - and the whole beer is a real treat. Fantastic, hope to get to try it again

Mouthfeel: Medium body.
Taste: Fruity, gently tart, spicy.
Finish: Dry, hoppy and tart aftertaste. A hint of bitterness.
Overall: I was not impressed, but it’s probably just me. Still, a very special brew. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Une bouteille de la batch 2 embouteillée au mois d’avril de l’an 2012. Bière jaune dorée translucide (claire) avec une mousse blanche durable. Le nez nous rappelle un bon vin blanc, du citron, des notes houblonnées d’agrumes. Une touche funk s’ajoute. La bouche est superbe, des bretts, du citron, des épices, des fleurs. Cette bière est superbe, l’équilibre parfaite. Nous sommes en présence d’une grande bière. Une bière digne d’un grand cru des Graves. 9/10 keanex (1799) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Batch #2, bottled in April 2012.
Appearance: Be careful when uncaging this as the contents are under pressure. That is even more apparent on the pour which produces almost all head which very slowly dissipates. The body is the color of straw with some haze to it. This beer looks refreshing.
Aroma: Brett is strong on the nose giving off strong leather aromas; straw, citrus and oak support the leathery aromas. This is an excellent aroma if you like Brett.
Taste: The taste isn’t as funky as the aroma indicates, it’s rather tame here. The flavor starts with slight tart lemon and leather before getting a touch sweeter by the end of the mid taste with hints of sweet citrus and malt. The finish isn’t dry nor sweet and the oak is very subdued. A bit of pepper lingers on the tongue and down my throat after the sip.
Palate: Medium to light bodied with soft to hard carbonation by the end of the sip.
Overall: This is another excellent Anchorage beer. I could drink their beer all day if it weren’t on the pricey side. Well done Anchorage Brewing, you’ve got a fan.
