Poured into a Unibroue tulip glass. Pours a hazy light golden amber with a two finger white head with good retention and lacing, constantly refreshed by active carbonation. Aroma of light fruit, lemon, butter and wild yeast. Flavor of lemon, orange, brett, light malt, slightly vinous. Finishes with a hint of wood, dry tartness and residual yeast. Light to medium bodied with nice sharpness from the carbonation. Closer in style to an American wild ale than a tripel, with a very light touch of Belgian. Not my style, but enjoyable as a interestingly flavored, well made wild yeast influenced ale.

A: Yellow. Slightly hazy. Large luxurious head.
S: Citrus. Some oak. Light funk.
T: Citrus. Bitter hops. Dry throughout. Some woodiness. Wonderfully balanced. Brett is understated, thankfully. Anchohol is present but by no means out of proportion.
M: High carbonation. Alcohol and acids produce a nice, almost medium body.
O: So far, my favorite of Anchorage's offerings and a very solid brett beer. I am not a huge fan of over-the-top brett beers, but this one was very well balanced with bitterness and barrel flavors.

A: Hazy pale straw color, stark white head

S: Very tart and zesty, light sweetness, some apple notes

T: Nose continues into the flavor with a tart front, but fades with the classic sweet, but light, body of a tripel. That slight brett funk pervades everything (it's not a strong funk, but present).

M: Light bodied

O: Light, tart, zesty, fruity, estery. Classic tripel with a twist from the funky tart brett notes.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Served in a SAVOR glass.

Pours a good golden color with a nice, fluffy white head. Good rocky foam with nice retention and a good dose of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a strong Brett presence with some earthy funk to go along with some yeast spice and faint barrel notes.

The flavor is also pretty Brett heavy, but also has notes of oak, yeast spice, and a bit of hops. Medium body with spritzy carbonation and a dry finish. Earthy. Not quite as good as some of Anchorage's other offerings, but still quite tasty.

Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving some lace. Hazy pale amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Tart fruity nose and flavor is yeasty, fruity with a lingering tart finish. Batch #1 Oct 2011, $12.99 for a caged & corked 750ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT. Not quite sure what Sam Calaglone (Dogfish Head) is doing, looks like moral support for Anchorage brewing.
