A: Nice pale golden color, rather cloudy, with a thick foamy head.
S: Citrusy bretts are most prominent with a little straw.
T: Citrus, green apple, tart brettanomyces, some alcohol.
M: Quite light for a tripel-style ale. Medium carbonation. Pretty clean.
O: Because of the bretts in this, it changes quite a bit over the course of a pour. Opens up, mellows out, becoming less tart and a bit sweeter, and really develops a lot of complexity.

brilliantly conceived collaboration from anchorage and dogfish head, given generously to me by a new friend. sorachi ace hopped triple in chardonnay barrels with brett, how perfect. the pour is hazy yellow, pale without much luster but a masive fizzy white head that hangs on for quite some time. the nose is really oaky and acidic from the wine, and a year has helped the brett do its magic, lots of funk here. the sorachi hops arent as prominent as i would like them to be, but i get the lemon without the bitter. taste is more balanced, but the wine still makes a big impact. wheat malt and maybe oats, this is the best of all three fermentation worlds, complexity is ripe. distinctly belgina in nature, but nuanced in a remarkable way. the hops finish beautifully with the brett, and while i have to imagine they have faded some, the balance found here is divine. finish is long too, zesty, funky, and memorable. beautiful carbonation and a lightness rare for its abv. i could drink this everyday, its like nothing else, a gorgeous combination of flavors and techniques here, a real work of craftsmanship.
