Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass, as recommended by the brewer. The bottle bears a "bottled on" date of March, 2012, and that this was part of Batch #2.
Pours a pale straw yellow, with a tall, fragile brilliant white head that collapses upon itself leaving moderate lacing down the sides.
Has a full, funky aroma, with tart apples, grass, wet oak, and lemon. The smell is quite strong and yeasty, leaving no doubt that this is a strong, if not slightly sour smelling, wit beer.
I can best describe this taste as delicate and light, with a foundation of funky grass, savory greens, lemon, and rock candy. There's an ever so slightly sour taste, but it is more than balanced by the grassy and light sweet tastes.
Light bodied, with a slightly sour feel that puckers the tongue. Overall, though, this is a soft brew, with mild carbonation.
The label gives one the impression that this is some monster of a brew, but the truth is that it is a delicate, pretty well balanced witbier that I would be happy to have again.

Alright, I guess I'll say something on this.
Witbier, as from what I've seen, this is supposed to be in a mug, cool, well, here goes.
The appearance, well, its somewhat hazy yet has a decent transparency about it.
the smell is extremely wine-like, is this beer? Whoah, ok, I've had some Anchorage beers and think they're more out to put out more wine-like beers for the most part.
The taste, whoah, just too vinous for me, and too dry. There's nothing here beer-like.
The mouthfeel is extremely dry and makes me wanna pound water for the rest of my life.
Overall, what the flying fuck is this swill? This shit is from my home state, what an embarrassment. Pure wine shit, if you ask me. I won't ever have this again.
