Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a CCB snifter.
A: Hazy, dark golden yellow, with one finger's worth of white head, and good visible carbonation.
S: Lemon, biscuit, and Brett barnyard funk with some citrus hops. I get an overall vinous impression.
T: Citrus/lemony barnyard funk with biscuit malt sweetness and some fruity esters. Some Belgian yeast character as well as some dryness from the tannin components. The finish is similar to that of a chardonnay with a little more attenuation, and maybe some bitterness from the hops.
M: Medium mouthfeel to maybe a little heavier than expected for style. Alcohol is noticeable but doesn't detract at all.
O: To say this is a complex beer is an understatement. There's a lot going on here, and it's all very, very good. It's a sipping & thinking beer, not one to have while you're mindlessly eating peanuts at a ballgame. But a wonderful beer, and I'm very glad to have had the chance to try it. Highly recommended.

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.
