Picked up at Julio's. First Alaskan beer I've seen in MA.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear light straw colour with a big, fluffy two finger white head that faded to leave a nice thick blanket. Only thing keeping this fro ma 5 is the lack of side lacing.

S - Wow, this is quite saison like, just with some wheat. Truely, thats what this is like. Great lemon, corriander, and belgian spices with a really good wheat backbone. Crazy but delicious.

T - Again, like a hybred between a nice saison and a wit. Great lemon, corriander, some oak/wine notes that lead into a very nice wheat flavour.

M - Good, feels a bit stronger than the ABV states to be. Must be the barrel. Real nice carbonation though. Very clean.

O - Incredibly suprised by this beer. Super drinkable. Wish this was a bit cheaper than it is priced, but still, worth a try. Glad I bought this.

A: Crystal clear straw colored beer with a bone white sea foam head. This is perhaps the most translucent beer I have ever seen, It's like glass. Large bubbles burst and soon the foam lowers by about an inch leaving just a bit of lacing.
edit: Crystal clear halfway through until about 2/3 of the way through the bottle... then gets all San Francisco.

S: Smells freaking funky from about a foot and a half away. What is this stuff!? I can smell it from where I sit! A closer approach thankfully carries more and an unidentifiable funk. With it, a huge coriander/clove presence presents itself as well as a suggestion of fresh cut oak.

T: Prickling carbonation spreads across the tongue leaving behind it a somewhat faint suggestion of flamed lemon peel and spice. Black pepper seems to win the battle of spice in the finish.

M: VERY carbonic. Zhou!

O: This is overly carbonated which all but cancels out what might other wise be a plethora of subtle flavors... It's distractingly crisp. Still Whiteout is quite good even if it's not nearly as funky as the nose would have you believe. Also I've no knack for grammar, but coriander ("corriander") is spelled wrong on the bottle. Haha.

Quite the outstanding take on a wit with a marked sense of brett and Chardonnay oak.

Presentation: 750 ml brown, caged and corked bottle. Screen printed label with a green and white design of a snowed mountain landscape framed by burgundy bars with the details of the brew and face of the brewer. Side paragraph offers a description of the brew, and serving indications, back narrative exposed intent, and background. Notes 20 IBUS, bottling Batch May 2011, and 6,5% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass.

A -Hazy pale straw pour, rich frothy head, medium retention, fair surface memory and some touches of lacing.

S - Rich nose with plenty of funky brett touched up by a rich citric sense swinging with notes of woody white grapes.

T - Nose extended in the mouth with ample richness, the funky brett, full of tart and leathery notes, is pushed back and forth by that soft sense of oak and chardonnay, which adds a subtle lingering sweet sense that disappears in the dry finish. A rich lemon grass sense permeates the whole brew with a spicy hint.

M - Light body with high carbonation, despite the insinuation of sweet oak the finish is rather dry with a pleasing lingering sense.

O - Quite rich and spectacular, very quaffable and stimulating.

Notes: Quite a surprise! Another visiting brew given the local beer week at the time I guess. Quite an unexpected treat to find this on the shelf in any case. Pricing while not overwhelming is a touch steep but when barrel-aging and brett are involved this seems to be the common case. Other than that this is quite a refreshing and stimulating brew.

A: Very pale/lemon body with a big creamy/fluffy head(slow dissipation). Adequate lacing.

S: Pine/lemon citrus zest, earthy, yeast, and spice/pepper. It all comes off as kind of funky/tart.

T: Lemon/pine zest, slight smoked oak, little sour, slightly sweet malt and some slight bitterness .

M: buttery/crisp, low/medium alcohol presence, dry, and medium carbonation.

O: I don't particularly gravitate to this style, but this beer is pretty tasty and complex. I probably wouldn't buy again though, but I think it's worth a try.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Stone Cali-Belgie IPA glass. Batch#1 - May 2011.

A - Very pale yellow, slightly hazy. Foamy bright-white head leaves decent lacing.

S - Brett funk, lemons, slightly musty.

T - This is my first Sorachi Ace beer and you can really taste the lemons. Then the brett funk kicks in and you can taste a faint bit of oak, Balanced pretty nicely. Ends with a champagne dryness.

M - High carbonation. Medium light mouthfeel. It works with the lemons and brett.

D - Medium high. This is best on a hot sunny day. Very thirst quenching.

Not a bad beer. I took my first few sips when it was just out of the fridge and all I got was the brett funk and a lot of skunkiness. Letting comes to temperature helped it out a lot.

At Max's today.

The beer pours a light gold color with fairly good head retention and lacing. The nose on this beer is outrageous, as I get lime, lemon zest, juniper berries and light marijuana. The aroma profile on this bad boy is amazing. Alas, very little of this translates into the flavor profile. The beer tastes like a fairly typical wheat/wit beer, with some undertones of lemon and coriandor. It's nice enough, but considering what I get on the nose, it's hard not to be a bit disappointed. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and the beer finishes well. The alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and I have to say this beer delivers a fair amount of flavor for the abv.

A good, solid beer, but not really anything to get terribly excited about either.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

A random case o' this found its way to my most local haunt, and I just had to try it. It pours a clear pale-golden straw topped by a healthy cap of white foam. The nose comprises white vinegar, Brett funk, tart lemon, sour mandarin orange, light white wine, coriander, and cardamom. The taste holds notes of Bretty cobweb, dry lemon peel, musty lemonade, light honey, coriander, cardamom, cedar, and a touch of spicy grape. The lemon starts out as a dagger-prick of tartness, but then falls off into a moldy version of the fruit, where it malingers for a bit, only to die off completely in the finish. Something here doesn't sit right with me... The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, fairly sticky finish. Overall, this was an interesting brew, one that partially succeeds and partially fails. After a short bit of research, I think I pinpointed the source of the strange flavor: Sorachi, my old nemesis. Alright, that would explain things a bit. Beyond my hate for this hop (and all that it does to lay waste to beers' flavors), this wasn't too bad. Kinda interested to see what a bit of age does to it now...

One of my colleagues spoke longingly of trying some of Anchorage Brewing Company's beers, touting that they age their beers in French Oak Chardonnay barrels which sounded lovely. Triple fermented...Brett yeast...YEAH. Once I learned that my friend works with the graphic designer for ABC's labels, I had to try some! I'm partial to a great Belgian Witbier, so picked up a cold 750 ml of Whiteout. It's a solid beer all around, a nice twist on a witbier. Poured a cloudy white-gold with a pillowy head and moderate lacing. A lot of orange peel in the smell. The taste, three flavors really stood out - black peppercorn and the Brett yeast, but really that chardonnay flavor from the aging popped out, so much that my cousin - a big wine dude - wanted to open a bottle of a California chardonnay he'd been sitting on and taste the two side-by-side. (We passed - a little too much for a Sunday afternoon watching baseball. But it would be a cool experiment.) Could pair this with roasted salmon or a summer's salad...or even a great cheese plate. Had an intense artisanal grilled cheese with heirloom tomatoes alongside Whiteout and the acidity of the tomatoes and the sharpness of the cheese matched the peppery flavors of the beer perfectly. A solid first dive into Anchorage - looking forward to trying their Saison next!

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Pours a pale straw with a quickly dissipating white head. Nice bretty aroma with a bit of oak. Light bodied. Starts off with a lot of wood. Decent tartness. Fairly dry and crisp. Oak fades a little but still lingers in the finish. Very drinkable. I thought the oak was a little strong at first, but it grew on me.

A: Pours a translucent straw yellow with a large amount of fluffy white head. A thin layer retains well, and leaves pleasant walls of lacing.

S: Funky and damp, with notes of orange. Kind of like the compost heap of a tangerine fanatic?

T: Grainy sweetness and lots of funk, though it isn't overpowering. The finish is more hoppy and a bit dry, and the funk continues throughout.

M: Medium carbonation, medium to light body.

Overall this is pretty interesting, relatively light, and fairly enjoyable. If it was cheap I might consider it as a nice alternative summer beer.

Poured from the bottle a very cloudy light lemon yellow with a thin bright white cap.

Aroma of lemon zest, black peppercorns, chardonnay, coriander and yeast.

The taste was a touch tart with lemon and chardonnay along with yeast and biscuit. The chardonnay really starts to come thru as it warms.

Lighter bodied and quite dry with a moderate carbonation.

The medley of flavors blend together to make a very enjoyable beer.

Chilled bottle into a glass. Shared by... Evan?

A: Pours a pale straw body with light haze and off-white head. Decent retention.

S: Incredibly sulfuric brett expression that reminded me of farts and sunblock. My enjoyment was irretrievably lost at that point.

T: Straw, lemon zest, grass, some sweetness. I was hoping the brett would express itself with some funk or hay or something more pronounced. It's like an underdeveloped saison at this point. Needs more time, perhaps.

M: Light-bodied with medium-plus carbonation.

O: No one at the tasting liked this. I'm completely mystified by its high score. Actually, considering its rarity and price tag, I'm not. $15 for this? Please.

Thanks to Jason for sharing this one. It's been on my radar since my spring trip to Anchorage. Served in a Darkness glass.

A - A voluminous white foam settles to a thin cap and thicker collar leaving plenty of lacing behind. Hazy pale straw-colored body.

S - Brett, buttery chardonnay oak, tropical funky fruits, white wine, hint of peppercorns, light lemon notes as well.

T - Taste is more witbier-oriented. Wheat, light pale malt sweetness, a bit of spice and sour lemon character in the finish, as well as a touch of medicinal brett.

M - Zesty carbonation, medium-light body, dry and lightly tannic finish. No alcohol present.

D - This is really easy to drink, and the spice character is quite understated which I prefer. There's perhaps a bit too much in the way of buttery oak and wine influence, but I imagine over time the brett character will grow in strength. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

pours a slight hazy straw yellow with lots of fizzy white head. incredible retention and wonderful lacing.

a complex mix of brett, light lemon zest, dry oak, and faint dry white wine. very gueuze like.

i say this often but similar to the nose, very complex. the only difference is there is no gueuze flavor. very faint tartness if any at all. mostly a mix of oak, brett, wheat, subtle spice, and white wine.

nice and dry all around. lots of oak dryness and white wine dryness. damn near perfect carbonation.

this is good, exceeded my expectations all around. reminds me a lot of a more brett influenced RR temptation.

Thanks for sharing, Bobby.

A: The beer pours a pale yellow color with a tall white head.

S: A very mild Brett aroma with a lot of bread and lemon peel. There's a touch of sulfur along with some grass and straw. As it warms, a distinct barnyard type of funk starts to come out. A very light spice note to it.

T: Straw and grass are strong on the palate with a fair amount of lemon zest. Lots of bread and wheat with a mild sweetness and spice. The Brett is once again there, but not as prominent as I might have expected.

M: Light bodied with a medium to high carbonation.

O: Was looking forward to this, but it's pretty pedestrian and not worth $15.

Many thanks to AugustGarage for this treat. He always brings it when we do trades, so solid.

Caged and Corked, popped the cork with a loud POP! Brett tartness hit my nose immediately and got me excited about this beer. It pours a bright yellow color- pretty cloudy. I can't see my fingers through the other side of the glass. For a wit, this is pretty light colored- unique. Smell- tart cherries, a nice funky waft of brett, maybe some white wine notes, perhaps champagne. Light, effervescent, airy. Taste- The tart cherry flavor hits the top of my palate, it is a tingy feeling (just a bit metallic maybe? Its not off putting though). the spices of the wit around the sides of the tongue, definite sourness that makes my pucker up a bit. Definitely pretty lemony. This beer is pretty unique. I don't feel like it sits well in the Wit category, and it isn't 100% about the Brett either. One of the only real effects from the Brett is the tartness, but not much horseblanket here- the citrus from the lemon flavors probably balance that flavor out.

Overall, it is refreshing, interesting, light, and nice. I would seek this out again for sure.

Poured into a large Tripel Karmeleit glass.

Body is clear gold, poured to about a half inch height of head which is white and sudsy, then dissipated to a cap and ring, leaving some lacing on the glass.

Aroma is lemony, butter, coriander, band aid, yeast funk (like the inside of a raw chicken), and bready malt.

Tastes mildly tart with lemon juice and zest, mid palate picks up the chardonnay, coriander, and oak notes. Finish is dry with lemon hop flavor (Sorachi), pepper, and lemon-zest bitterness. Funk is less evident in the taste than in the nose (probably a good thing).

Body is light and the carbonation is effervescent, giving this a refreshing, cleansing mouthfeel. There's a bit of prickle on the tongue, probably from the coriander and maybe the hops as well.

This is a pleasant drinking witbier, but unusual, with lemon and chardonnay grape flavors that are uncharacteristic of the style. Could be a light saison in the style of Fantome. This beer is also clearer than typical witbiers. In any case, an interesting interpretation and one that shows a lot of thought and care in the making.

Batch # 1. May 2011.

Pours a slightly hazy super light yellow with a 2 inch puffy white head that fades to a craggy cap. Thin rings of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, lemons, and the funky brett smell. Taste is of buttered wheat bread, lemon peel, subtle spices, and some slight funky flavors. I have read that butter flavors aren't desirable in beer, but I am really enjoying this flavor. The barrel aging in the wine barrels is evident as a fruity woodiness. There is a a good level of carbontion with a dry, crisp mouthfeel on this one. Overall, this is a very good witbier from this upstart brewery. I am very impressed with this beer and this is one of the best of the style I have had. I will for sure be seeking out more offerings from this brewery in the future.

750 picked up at Whole Foods Glendale.

Pours a nice clear yellow that has a huge white head. The head leaves nice sticky lacing and lasts for a long time.

Smell is almost solely of barnyard funk. Slight lemon and a hint of Brett on the end, but I was hoping for more.

The Chardonnay barrels have played a great role on this beer. Very nice lemon zest with the tart brett flavor at the end. Still a ton of barnyard funk and slight pepper notes in there as well.

Mouthfeel is extremely carbonated, but I am enjoying it on this hot summer day. Very easy to drink while its 100 degrees out side.

Overall, this was a nice beer. I've never tried anything from Anchorage, but I'm interested to try more.

bottle from awesome girlfriend from outside Boston. I am not a big fan of the 100% markup that Shelton Brothers have done, and I think it is appalling. A $7.99 beer in Alaska being sold for $16 in Massachusetts is utterly disgusting... so... Shame on you Shelton Brothers, Shame...

anyway, rant over.
pours a nice beautiful whiteish cloudy 2 fingered pour...

smell is lemon, wheat, and not as much funk as I was expecting. As this is brewed with Brett, i was expecting a ton of funk, earth, etc. There is a bit, so you do realilze there is brett in it as you smell, but not too much. kinda nice.
taste is a bit different. Way more earthy funk than the nose lets on. Nice citrus character to it on the middle, and finishes with an odd mint flavor. Cant say this isnt complex for a whit, thats for sure, it has to be the most intriguing whit I have ever had.
Mouthfeel is pretty standard for the style, pretty thin and nicely carbed...

750mL bomber poured into a Duvel tulip

Pours an extremely pale golden yellow with a huge, bone white billowing cap. Little to no lacing and the head receded pretty quickly.

The aroma is of lemons, saddle leather, peppercorns/coriander, and chardonnay. A touch of toasted oak. Basically, this guy smells like a funked up version of a standard wit with a large dose of the chardonnay barrels. As advertised and very welcomed.

I'm very impressed with the flavor the french oak chardonnay barrels impart on this wit. The wit is rather standard, lemony citrus, doughy yeast with coriander and peppercorns, but the barrel aging adds layers of complexity and flavor that turly adds to the beer. Then, throw in the brett and we have some nice horse blanket/saddle leather funk to make this even more interesting.

Some pretty active carbonation and a moderate tartness lead to a light body that is refreshing and pleasing. This is markedly complex and amazingly unique.

This is the type of beer that doesn't come around too often. Pushing boundaries and exploring new opportunities, while still making a delicious beer.

750ml bottle thanks to largadeer.

Slightly hazy golden-yellow color with a small white head.

The aroma is a little strangely funky with some sunscreen, oak, pineapple, and brettiness. Maybe a bit vegetal.

The flavor is better, although there’s a bit of Coppertone sunscreen. Also pineapple, coconut, chardonnay, and oak barrel.

Medium-bodied and dry with average carbonation.

Overall, not great. Maybe with some age this could mellow out a bit, but for now it’s probably more useful to spread on your skin for a sunny day at the beach, as the SPF is no doubt pretty high.
