750ml bottle. Second batch. The cork absolutely flies off with a boom.
Be careful pouring this one, it is super-carbonated. It pours a lightly hazy gold with a big foamy white head that likes to linger.
The smell is awesome. Clean brett notes, citrus, decent malt bill underneath. Oak mellows.
The flavor is also good. Honestly the hops don't come through much, it is more of a witbier with brett and citrus than anything but it is a refreshing take on it even with the odd experimentation. The Bitter Monk was unbelievable,the Whiteout Wit was horrendous, this is closer to Bitter Monk but not quite as awesome. The sweetness and oak come through with a few more sips. Brett is tame with a hint of funk and medicinal flavor, pretty low tartness.

750mL corked and caged bottle poured into Dogfish Head goblet. Batch #6, April 2014.
A - Pours a fizzy, lite beer yellow, with some serious haze. About a finger of bright white head lasts for a very long time. A blanket of white lacing paints the glass as I drink. Looks like I would hope a Bretty-IPA would look.
S - Tart, peppery aroma full of sour fruits, bubblegum, and a touch of funk. Lacks the candy sweetness typical of the Belgian IPA style. I consider this a good thing. Complex and inviting.
T - Starts with lemon tartness, quickly replaced by a belgian spice billing. Nice dry, piney hops on the back end. The finish is full of citrus. Tart, but lacks the funk I picked up in the nose.
M - Prickly carbonation with a fantastic dry finish. Drinks true to its mid-range ABV.
O - This is the first time I have seen this (or any Anchorage beer) in Delaware. Hoppy Belgian beers are typically among my favorites so I had high hopes for this one. I couldn't have asked for more in the aroma. It is a complexity of brett, citrus, hops, and spices. The flavors followed suit, but I would have liked a little more. There are no flavors out of place, but the flavor came off a bit diluted, the more I drank. A great beer, but I was looking for something with more flavor. Still among the best int he style I have ever had. Well done, but I won't be running back to the store to get another $11 bomber.
