I was really looking forward to trying this since I had a couple of the other Anchorage bottled offerings including Love Buzz...shared this at a recent sour beer tasting I hosted.

Enjoyed chilled from the corked and caged750ml in a glass.

The color is cloudy golden with a thin white head with fine bead and no lace to speak of. The smell is slightly lactic and lemony up front with a noticeable brett aroma that invokes tart and floral with a wheat and slight spice with a hint of tropical fruit. The feel is tangy with medium carbonation and tart medium body with a mostly dry finish.

The taste is very tangy with a light lemony quality with a subtle wheat flavor which also has a toasted element and lots of brettanomyces in the taste which brings a tropical fruit tanginess and citrus in the finish with dry lactic quality however there is not any alcohol in the taste apparent to me. Overall I was not dissapointed in fact this lived up to expectations and exceeded based on the way the base wit and brett worked together -almost like a strong berliner since it lacks the prominent spice you may expect from a traditional witbier.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a head that disappears as soon as it got there. Not much lacing or retention going on.

S - Nice funky brett aroma on the nose. Lemon peel, black pepper and a little grainy wheat.

T - Lemon peel, earthy and black pepper. Light tartness from the brett.

F - Medium bodied and light carbonation. The minimal "woosh" on popping the cork had me worried. The carbonation should be higher so it can dance all over the tongue.

O - Enjoyable, but not what I've come to expect from Anchorage.
