A - Cloudy, hazy, pineapple color with orangish hues. Full, thick, creamy, frothy, white head. Very nice retention leaving a nice sticky lace.
S - Brett is definitely in the forefront of the nose. Nice Tripel aroma backing up that Brett. Tropical fruit, banana, sweet malt. Some spices and a touch of floral hops. Not much from the Chardonnay though.
T - Brett is a bit more subdued than in the nose but it gives the beer a nice funk albeit nothing overpowering. Really nice stone and orchard fruit, a touch of banana ester. Some spice but it's quite lightly spiced for the style. Touches of sweet grape and vainilla. Complex but not disjointed.
M - Medium to light body. Above average carbonation. Pretty spritzy and lively for the style.
D - Quite easy to drink and it entices me to keep drinking more. Complex but well balanced. Brett is definitely there, strong, and funky but it isn't overpowering.
Notes: Really nice and interesting Tripel. Solid beer. Brett is definitely there but it doesn't take over the Tripel. Chardonnay provided only a touch of flavor. Definitely worth picking up.

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.
