Eh? Had high hopes, kinda dashed. Looks ok a first pour, clear, translucent, golden, two finger white head, medium white bubbles. Sadly the apperance is not as it should be. The "head" is not rocky as a triple's should be. Very light citrus, phenolic hint, some remaining belgian esters. A hint of funk and barn but just a hint. The flavor brings the party. Initially light, tart and funky. Followed by a lemon lift, and some distinct sweet vanilla, oak and light spice. The marriage between the oak and beer is the best part of this ale. Full rounded and silky feel, dry oh yes very dry. But alas I will not be buying this again, it was a great journy just not the best beer.

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.
