22oz bomber poured into a sampling glass @ NotB.

Pours a hazy light white amber with a small white head. Nose is tart and a bit of wheat.

Taste is crisp and dry, a bit of Bret and some nice sharp funkiness. Mouthfeel is light and tangy. A good sharp finish and nice crisp carbonation. Very good.

A really cool beer moment for me. Sharing this beer with the man himself. Thanks for the tour and the beer Gabe. Poured from a c and c unlabeled bottle.

A - Pours a light, cloudy yells with a nice soft white head.

S - Smells tart with some lemon and subtle wheat tones.

T - Very smooth lemon citrus and soft wheat backbone. A touch of Bret, but not very tart at all.

D - Very dry finish with great carbonation and a perfectly balanced body.

O - So honored to get to try this White Out experiment. Thanks Gabe, and keep up the good work. A truly wonderful beer.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured from an unmarked bottle a nice hazy very light amber with a thin, thin head that fades almost immediately. Hmmm

S - And then the nose hits. Tons of tart sour citrus, super bright and funky with very, very subtle wheat notes.

T - Taste is not quite as flooring as the nose here, crisp and dry with lots of funk and lemons. Flashes of brett as well.

M - Mouthfeel is spot on for this style. Very nice carbonation and a very, very dry finish.

O - Overall, a damn fine beer from Anchorage. Really have yet to have one of their beers I did not like.
