Probably the loudest pop from a cork I've heard. Soft pour yields a three inch white merengue head. Pale lemon yellow in color and lacing sticks all over.
Smells so farmhouse fresh saison style-definite coriander and pepper spice. Funk, yeasty and lemon zest.
This sucker is dry ie. tongue sticks to roof of the mouth. Getting the funk and pepper. Hops and lemon peel. Can't really pick up on the French oaked wine tank. No sweetness at all.
Heavy brew with a lot of carbonation. Not exactly a refreshing craft.
I'm not digging on peppercorns in my beer and/or this seemed to have a pretty heavy dose of such. Smells lighter than it tastes. If you find yourself loving this, try Poivre Noir from Pipeworks. Wish this was more refreshing-bummer.

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.
