Whiteout Wit, bought in Reno, NV for $15.
Shared with no one. Poured into a cheap wine goblet, in my office.
A. Magnificent effervesence, sunlit pineapple yellow, a foamy, off white solid cap head.
S. Simply great nose, pale wheat, white wine / oak, lemon-sour, wild yeast...a bit of coriander. smells lofty, not totally unlike a gueze, there is an undercurrent of loveliness here. However, the chardonnay reigns supreme. The base beer smells like a Tripel at times, and there is pepper, for sure... simply fantasic, I could keep my nose in this all night. I am apparently a sucker for chardonnay aged beers. I think the combination of the wine barrel and brett added to the slightly spicy and noble Sorachi Ace hops is the ticket here.
T. Actually does come across as some weird Saison / Wit hybrid, with wine... rather Allagashy... Coconut? Surprisingly bitter secondary undercurrent of hops and yeast. Whiteout upholds the wine and brett portion of the beer in a big way. This may have started off as a traditional Witbier, but this is now a Wit in the same way that Robocop is your neighborhood beat cop. It's far evolved.
M / O. Delightful high carbonation, with a succuelent citrus-spice wine finish that turns dry and slightly fruity towards the very end. Incredibly fun to drink. I love this brewery. Highly recommended, but know what you're getting into. Much like Bitter Monk, this really blows away the base style and transforms into something wonderful. Highly recommended - Anchorage is doing great work right out of the gate.

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.
