Pours a clear straw yellow with rocky white head, rings of lace down the glass. Smell: dough, hay, citrus rind, pepper, barnyard and dried pineapple notes. Taste: orange citrus, light stone fruit sweetness, coriander. Herbal in the finish. Dry, slightly sticky finish. April 2014 bottling. Get the dregs in the glass and more dried pineapple and oak comes out.

Batch 6 from April 2014. 750ml C&C bottle into a Lost Abbey Teku.

Pours a hazy yello with big one finger white head that left huge lacing. Nose is big citrus fruits like tangerine and oranges, pineapple, mango, peaches, light funky brett, and mild oaky notes. Taste is big pineapple, mango, and peach. Brett yeast is totally there as is the lightest hint of the peppercorns. Don't know if I get kumquats, but citrus is big. Dry, hoppy, and clean. Easy to drink.

I'm surprised that this beer is as hoppy as it is from April. Love Galaxy. Love brett. Love Anchorage.

Pours a quite pale straw colour. Head is white and looks like finely whipped egg whites. Would like more texture to the head, but lace is nice and latticey. Bit of cloud. Looks great.

Smells tasty and funky. Nice acidity, with a touch of organic barnyard and sweaty cheese. Nice vinegary tartness and lemon as well - all wrapped up with a touch of sweetness for comfort. Very nice.

Taste has far less of the funk. Lighter, with light malt notes upfront and a touch of wild astringency but then it's all hops - not in a big way, but it just tastes herbally bitter, with a twist of balsamic in there - lemony, slightly flaxy and some soapy notes late as well. Not quite the mix I expected, but drinkable and pleasant.

Decent body, although there's a touch of sharpness midway. Ends nicely.

A bit of a confused beer. Funky at times, bitter at others and always very pale. Overall, I quite enjoy it but it's not quite enough of one thing or another to excite me.
