22oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a magnificent, meringue-like head of 2 fingers that recedes slowly, leaving a craggy lace.

S: Citrus, coriander, sour, and funk. Peppery. A hint of vanilla and oak. There is some wood and barn and light pineapple from the brett.

T: Bitter. Spicy. Finishes like a chardonnay. It's oaky and slippery with some savory vanilla. The malt character is light. Fermentation is spicy and funky. There is an intense bitterness.

M: It's smooth, with some unenthusiastic carbonation. Slightly drying.

O: This beers struts some impressive plumage but ultimately falls flat. I may have to get used to this style and then give it another try.

Anchorage Brewing Company - Galaxy White IPA, poured into a Lawson's tulip.

Look - Pours a cloudy pale straw with a chunky white head that leaves tons and tons of sticky lacing. You can't make em look better than that.

Smell - Slight bitter coriander zest. Spice and pepper. Sour yeast brett isn't totally overfunked but smooth. Touch of woody oak.

Taste - Starts fruity juicy orange and transitions to funky sour brett with pepper and oak, then fades leaving some oak behind.

Mouthfeel - Heavy-medium bodied with balanced carbonation. Rests woody. Clean and dry. Great drinkability.

Overall - This is an acquired taste that I have learned to appreciate over the past year or so. This particular brew has more balance that other "brett bombs" I have had. Tasty and refreshing, relies less on fruit than non-brett whites, however, both have their respective places. This is the brett counterpart to Allagash White.
