look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

(Batch# 5, July 2013), consumed March 15, 2014...poured from a 750ml bottle (corked & caged) into a Lost Abbey branded, 16oz, Rastal 2.0 Teku Glass.

A- First pour reveals a slightly hazy golden yellow with a 1-2 finger soapy, white head (second pour is much more hazy, courtesy of the bottle conditioning). Regardless, it looks amazing for being bottle conditioned. 5.0

S- Massive! Fruity tartness (Grapefruit, White Grape, Passionfruit), spice (from the peppercorns) and astringency courtesy of the oak aging from the foeder(s) all mingle effortlessly. Galaxy hops, oak aging and re-fermenting on brettanomyces makes for an absolutely perfect balance...Gabe Fletcher is a masterful brewer! 5.0

T- Despite the label of 50IBU's, it tastes much more bitter/hoppy than suggested. Like the IBU's, it also feels a but more than the 7.0% as stated on the bottle...complaining, I am not! The aroma, flavor and mouthfeel are absolutely perfect...I cannot fathom what this beer tastes fresh, but the amalgam of ingredients, the care aged on oak and the quality of packaging makes this nothing short of a world-class offering. I am nothing less than honored to have the ability to enjoy this multiple times and hope to continue the trend. 4.75

M- Firmly light on the palate. Strong carbonation (courtesy of the bottle conditioning) makes for a highly effervescent and rather soft experience on the palate allowing the bitterness to shine as courtesy from the hops, adjuncts and oak aging in equal amounts. 4.5

O- This is a MUCH bigger than stated on the bottle and does not disappoint in any regard. Anchorage is many miles away, yet continues to deliver their offerings as far as VT, and am nothing but impressed with everything I have sampled thus far (Galaxy White IPA, Bitter Monk, Darkest Hour). 4.75

Bitter Monk and Darkest Hour are more stupefying offerings from Anchorage Brewing Co. and encourage all who read this to investigate these brands.

Batch #5 dated July 2013

Hazy light yellowish poor; head settles to a film with retained lacing. Heavy smell of citrus, tropical fruit - signature brett - with some light bready malts. I get some bitterness in the nose. Bright and tart citrus up front - primarily orange peel and some grapefruit - with an odd combination of fruits mid palate. Minimal bready malt. Very dry. Fairly funky and peppery on the finish with some stale bitterness and a touch of unpleasant astringency. Mouthfeel is on the thin side with low to moderate, prickly carbonation.

This one drinks like a mix between a belgian IPA and a saison. I like what it's trying to do but I don't think it was successful. I'm also not sure time was kind to this. There are a fair amount of hops but the hop flavors are not fresh. The Brett is very developed and the additives make for an interesting and very fruity experience. But it just doesn't come together for me. Add in some off flavors and I will pass next time.
