750 ml bottle was poured into a large Duvel snifter. I got this bottle from volunteering at the Extreme Beer Fest back in February. Batch 1/Oct 2011
Appearance: This beer poured a crazy two finger puffy head that has reduced to half it's size. It is a hazy golden yellow with some clarity and signs of carbonation coming up through the glass.
Smell: bready, tart, sour, vanilla, buttery, oakey, spicy, earthy, yeasty esters, lemon, citrus, and a bit of funkiness too. Tripel meets a sour.
Taste: Awesome. The Brett and the chardonnay barrels blend everything well. Picking up some apple, pear, and Belgian candy too. Alcohol is even hidden well too. A little bitterness in there too.
Mouthfeel: Soft, silky smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and easy to drink even with the presence of Brett in the beer.
Overall: A nice twist on the tripel style that is growing on me. Wish I held onto the bottle a bit longer. Oh well. Still awesome after sitting in the bottle for a year. Now I have to be on the lookout for their other brews too.

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.
