Poured a corked and caged 750ml into a 12oz highball.
Unfortunately not the best glass in the world, but when you pack up to move, you use what you can get. This beer pours a pale lemon yellow with a decent 2 inch bright white cap that leaves just a little bit of lacing down the sides of the glass. After I popped the top hints of must and grandmas old attic closet waft my way. Nice brett aroma. As it gets closer to the sniffer the brett comes across as damp earth and musty closest. Hints of lemon peel and spice. Just a little bit of pepper. The flavor is fantastic. Light and crisp. The brett is damp, wet earth with must and a bit of barnyard. Lemon zest and a bit of coriander. Really, it reminds me more of a saison or funky BdG then a wit. Really fantastic. The mouthfeel is a bit lacking. With as much brett, I thought it would finish a bit drier then it does. I was lucky enough to try this right after it came out at a tasting and I was extremely impressed with it. I was happy to see a lonely sitting on the shelf of one of my locals.

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.
