This just arrived yesterday and is being split with Kyle (zep9865).
This beer pours a medium bodied rich orangish gold in color with a two finger soapy white head. The nose is funky and full of Brett with a nice amount of buttery Chardonnay oak. The flavor consists of plenty of Belgian yeast, bitter hops, buttery Charddonnay barrel, and very dry Brett. It's nice, and what I kind of expected but not quite complex as I had hoped. It's nice and has traditional characteristics of a triple. That said, it's a much drier form. This beer drinks medium in body and has an assertive dry tartness to pair with the slight Chardonnay most present on the nose, and subtly present in the flavor profile. Overall this is a nice triple. If I'm spending money on a tripe. I'd prefer it's on something unique like this. It's an intriguing take on the style.

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.
