Pours a mostly clear red-tinted darker orange with dense but thin white head; Rorschach lacing. Smell: citrus peel, moldy overripe peaches, floral, musty, with grape skin and red wine vinegar notes. Taste: moderately acidic with big flavors... herbal and woody, bitter orange; beneath some sweet and sour fruit balance... unripe peach, melon note, sugared dried mango. Some snappy grain character quickly overwhelmed by red wine grapes and pepper. Interesting composition, with all of the components dialed up and dialed in. Really nice.

Bottle from Tipples, corked and caged. Poured to my tulip hazy orange with lots of. Unless and a big creamy white to off white head. Huge Brett aroma, orange peels, lots of floral and peppery notes, barnyard funky and dry. Not a lot of wine on the nose. Flavor is sweet mango intermingled with rose hips, citrus, funk, and light peppery spice. Lightly tart from the Brett, full bodied with a vinous red wine heaviness, but strong carbonation. Wow. This might be the best Brett beer I've ever had. The big juiciness of the beer balances out the dry funky Brett outstandingly.

Poured from a 750 into a tulip.

Nice orange color with a slight pink tint. Fluffy, thick white head, nice retention.

Smell is mostly brett for me, old cheese and funk. A little vinous oak. Some peppercorn and floral notes, faint citrusy hops. A little berry if you really look for it.

Opens up more on the taste. Oak and bitter citrus followed by round vinous/vinegary character. Floral/perfumey notes. A little peppercorn on the finish followed by some earthy funk and bitter oak.

Light bodied and smooth, ends dry but lingers a bit.

Tasty, unique, and complex, another nice creation from Anchorage.
