Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
In short: A complex and refreshing funky session wheat beer that defies categorization. Fantastic
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed six months after purchase. Bottle forwarded to me by oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott
The look: Partly cloudy yellow-straw color body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is truly farmhouse. It has a clear bright bretty character that is not too intense and has funny notes of parmesan cheese, lemony meringue, wet white wine barrel, more Taste is insanely refreshing but the beer does not compromise on complexity. Fresh slice of low-sweetness homem lemon pie with a nice meringue, plenty of fresh crisp wheat, kiwis and other exotic fruits, coriander, freshly squeezed lemon juice, nice white cheese, light notes of white wine, funk, astringent wood barrels. And I could go on an on Body is juicy and with a lot of small tickling bubbles. One word that best describe all the flavors of this beer (an there are many) is bright. I LOVE each and every Anchorage beers but Im really surprised that the Whiteout is currently my favourite. By style alone I would have suspected the Saison or maybe the Galaxy or the Tripel. But no, their wheat beer is my favourite. But with such alive beers, a lot of it depends on when you drink them. This Whiteout is truly a desert island beer, certainly not the most intense beer out there, but so complex and so drinkable that I could imagine drinking only this beer for the rest of my life. Fantastic beer that I need to keep in stock at home

Fortunately this was only a test of the emergency beer alert system, I have already purchased more Anchorage Whiteout Wit Bier, they are in my wine cellar. I repeat, this was only a test, no need to panic.

750 ml bottle. Interesting nose of wheat, brett, lemon, citrus, and wood. The flavor is starts tart with spicy Belgian yeast and notes of Chardonnay wine. Plenty of spices such as coriander and pepper. Plenty of citrus. It really matches the commercial description. Dry finish. I was skeptical on how a bretty, oak aged Wit beer would taste. Overall pretty damn nice.

wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle, purchased at Bruery Provisions in Orange County. Hazy yellow color. Smells like lemon, spice, and kinda funky. Taste is smooth, with lemon and pineapple, but maybe not as crisp as it should be. A decent summer beer.

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Hazy golden yellow body, large bubbly white head. Spotty lacing. Nose is full of oak, grass, lemon, wheat, delicate spicing, a bit of green grapes, and mild must. Flavor is similar with a nice mellow, refreshing profile. The oak and funk are subtle and complement the wheat, citrus, and coriander well. Light bodied, assertive carbonation, refreshing. Perhaps the best Beligan Witbier on the market given the added complexities.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Funky brett on the nose with hints of bread wheat in the background. Pours clear blonde with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. Funky brett, very briny, with a floral sweet note, the beer finishes with oak and dry funk. Not bad but i wish there was more of a Witbier in there.

phaleslu (9923) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2012
750 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a pale, hazy straw color with a finger of bone white head that settles into a small, lasting cap. The aroma didnt quite pop with bretty goodness like I remembered (I had it late last summer when it was fresh, too), with notes of summery barnyard funk, sweat, lemon citrus, chardonnay, coriander, wheat, and peppercorn. The flavor is almost exactly the same- oak, chardonnay, wheat, lemon, funk, spice. Light-bodied, with a funky mouthfeel and low carbonation. Consumed on a hot summer night and it was pretty refreshing, but restrained from the fresh version. I guess you shouldnt sit on this one.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2012
25.4 oz bottle, May 2011, batch #1. Clear olive yellow with a snowy white head. Nose is lemon, grass and vanilla yoghurt; yeah, its pretty funky, almost fishy. Medium body with lively, spritzy carb. Taste is lemon peel, chardonnay, a pinch of pepper with lingering coriander and green apple. Nice hybrid; i was hoping a bit crisper.

Bouteille de 750 ml. Armes doux et complexes de vin blanc, de brettanomyces et dagrumes. Robe blonde et trouble, lgre dentelle et effervescence assez active. Vraiment trs dlicate et raffine en bouche, cette bire montre les caractristiques attendues dune wit (bl, agrumes) ainsi quune belle touche de vin blanc et de brettanomyces. Finale dlicatement acide. Trs belle texture nuageuse. Vraiment une belle cration, dangereusement facile boire.

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, purchased at Hill Farmstead. Hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is lemon, oak, lightly buttery chardonnay notes, lots of pineapple brett. Nice, smooth flavor, some more lemon, pineapple, buttery oak. Not quite up to par with some of the others but still damn tasty.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Storm, thanks for a great New Years evening! Average creamy fin head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of Brett, citrus, leather, light grass with some fruit and malty feel to it as well. Some wood and light citrus fruity notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and somewhat oily texture. Moderated sweet and light bitter flavor with some acidic. Wood and light acidic finish with some fruity notes.
