Batch 1: Oct 2011

Pours light grain yellow with brilliant clarity and a solid quilt of bone whites. Smells really nice with lemons, pineapple, grain, clay, a little green olive juice. Flavor doesn't disappoint - nice bitterness, some grass, some almost teatree oil and leather with a bit of metal. Thin bodied with hi carb and a wet finish. Nice beer.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of lemon, orange, and other citrus hops with some funky Brett, Belgian yeast spices, some oak, and a touch of tart light fruit.

T - Starts off with some tart lemon zest and other citrus hops alongside some farmhouse funk and Brett flavor with some Belgian yeast spices. Through the middle, some oak comes through with some stronger yeast flavors, coriander, and clove with some mild bitterness. The finish is a mix of tart and funky Brett and yeast flavors, a bit of citrus hops, pepper and other spices, and a touch of oak.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, tart, and lightly spicy finish.

D - Very drinkable. Good complexity added to the beer from the Brett and oak. The balance of flavors is really nice from start to end and the alcohol is very well hidden.

Apparently a collaboration between Anchorage and Dogfish Head, although the Dogfish Head name is hardly made visible on the bottle print. Batch #1, Oct/2011.

A natural, unfiltered looking beer, kinda raw in appearance: super hazy/cloudy pale dirty yellow/gold with a foamy head that leaves gobs of lace on the glass.

Aroma gives off more Chardonnay than tripel, and a whole lot more Brett-y funk than either Chardonnay or tripel. A bit of wood nudges in. Nice fruity layer in the nose, like sniffing a cup of thick, combined, just-squeezed pear and peach nectar.

The spiciness of a tripel comes into the taste, and the Belgian yeast character (Brett, of course) is as assertive on tongue as in the nose. This mingles with the aforementioned pear/peach juice, Chardonnay, and wood. A bit of a green, leafy hop vibe too, and lemon peel. Fragrant, perfume-y, floral vibe overall. Huge waves of Chardonnay coat the mouth in the finish, mingling nicely with lemony hops.

There's such activity and complexity in the taste, I hardly even noticed the feel and probably wouldn't have cared if not reviewing. I mean, it's quite fine, achieving a great balance between fizzy tickle and smooth buttery texture, with the latter winning out just a tad...apparently every aspect of this beer is a winner.

I don't want to see Anchorage back themselves into a corner with all these triple-fermented, white wine barrel-aged beers...except these beers have been incredible so far, so if they turn into a Jolly Pumpkin type brewer (variations on a theme) then hey, no complaints from me. I've recently been won over by several Chardonnays, after not thinking I was ever going to acquire the taste for wine, so this is a real treat, considering big beers are my thing and the tripel is among my favorite styles. So if you're a beer drinker of similar mindset, you're going to want to try this, pronto. As with all the Anchorage stuff. Wow, best newcomer of the last several years, I think...

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a CCB snifter.

A: Hazy, dark golden yellow, with one finger's worth of white head, and good visible carbonation.

S: Lemon, biscuit, and Brett barnyard funk with some citrus hops. I get an overall vinous impression.

T: Citrus/lemony barnyard funk with biscuit malt sweetness and some fruity esters. Some Belgian yeast character as well as some dryness from the tannin components. The finish is similar to that of a chardonnay with a little more attenuation, and maybe some bitterness from the hops.

M: Medium mouthfeel to maybe a little heavier than expected for style. Alcohol is noticeable but doesn't detract at all.

O: To say this is a complex beer is an understatement. There's a lot going on here, and it's all very, very good. It's a sipping & thinking beer, not one to have while you're mindlessly eating peanuts at a ballgame. But a wonderful beer, and I'm very glad to have had the chance to try it. Highly recommended.

Batch 1 purchased from Hacienda.

22oz. bottle poured into tulip.

I get a little bit of a citrusy tripel at first, and then the mellow, chard oak comes in. But the finish is quite interesting; a tingling peppery-ness swirls in and leaves with a bit of dry finish. This is definitely a different take on the tripel that I quite enjoyed.

Pours hazy gold with a dense white head that settles to a thick cap, leaving rings of lacing clinging to the glass. Wonderful aromas of yellow apple, lemon zest, light Belgian yeast, and funky Brettanomyces, all wrapped up in a lovely white grape barrel. Taste is similarly funky, with lots of earthy Brettanomyces, citrus-forward hops, ripe pear, and a solid Tripel base of banana and clove. Very nice blend of the traditional Tripel and the funk. Mouthfeel is crisp and feels surprisingly light given the 9% ABV. Body is a touch over medium, and the carbonation is ample. Overall another great Anchorage beer, keep em coming!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

2012 vintage poured from bottle into tulip glass

Appearance: hazy, pale, golden color. Minimal foam, but a lot of lacing.

Smell: major Brett presence, sour acidity, wet horse blanket, white grapes, fruity esthers

Taste: pretty much follows the nose. Funky Brett, vinous white grapes, mild sourness, tart finish. I've never had this fresh so no comparison, but I imagine with almost three years of aging the Brett has taken over much more than fresh. The Brett overpowers the base tripel beer here so that it takes a back stage. Hard to pinpoint the tripel flavors, feels like a generic golden ale. There is a barrel presence of white wine, Chardonnay, and a slight oak flavor.

Feel: Drinks surprisingly smooth, nice mouth feel. A lot of Brett forward beers are over carbonated and biting. This has a dry, crisp, clean finish.

Overall: I think this has aged a little too long. Quite a mellow beer dominated by Brett with white wine and a basic tripel following it in a very back seat role. I don't get a lot of bold, flavorful, complexity I was hoping for. Feels fairly muted.

This was a shockingly good beer, far surpassing my expectations. The Brett complemented rather traditional Tripel flavors - Belgian yeast, candi sugar, and citrus hops - remarkably well. It actually comes across a bit like a cross between Orval and Westmalle Tripel.

This is certainly not a traditional Tripel, but it is a remarkable brew.

From a 750 ml bottle (Batch #4, July 2014) into a teku glass.

A-The beer is light-honey colored with a fair amount of particulate visible in the murky liquid. The head is about a finger tall to start and drops to a cap pretty quickly. The foam is eggshell in color and leaves a bit of lacing as I drink. Floaters are sometimes a turnoff for me, but the beer looks like a tripel.

S-The aroma opens with a big hit of fruity, brett funk. The funk gives way to a nice mixture of white wine, oak, tart white grape, lime, pineapple, and floral flavors. There is a bit of bread and dough too. It smells like a tripel, but with a nice twist of tartness and fruit. Inviting.

T-The taste is similar, but dough and bread are move prevalent and there is a bit of honey sweetness. The vinous flavors remain strong though, and there is just a bit of lime citrus flavor, as well as some peach and oak. The finish is floral and almost herbal with a bit of pepper spice.

M-The body is medium in heft with a smooth but persistent carbonation. It fits the beer very well.

O-This is a great beer. I love tripels, but I usually prefer more traditional examples of the style, e.g., Karmeliet, than modern, funky barrel-aged brews. This beer may change my opinion. The flavors here are complex, subtle, and manage to work well with each other to provide a nice overall package. The mouthfeel is nearly perfect for the beer too. This would work well with food.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Cloudy, hazy, pineapple color with orangish hues. Full, thick, creamy, frothy, white head. Very nice retention leaving a nice sticky lace.

S - Brett is definitely in the forefront of the nose. Nice Tripel aroma backing up that Brett. Tropical fruit, banana, sweet malt. Some spices and a touch of floral hops. Not much from the Chardonnay though.

T - Brett is a bit more subdued than in the nose but it gives the beer a nice funk albeit nothing overpowering. Really nice stone and orchard fruit, a touch of banana ester. Some spice but it's quite lightly spiced for the style. Touches of sweet grape and vainilla. Complex but not disjointed.

M - Medium to light body. Above average carbonation. Pretty spritzy and lively for the style.

D - Quite easy to drink and it entices me to keep drinking more. Complex but well balanced. Brett is definitely there, strong, and funky but it isn't overpowering.

Notes: Really nice and interesting Tripel. Solid beer. Brett is definitely there but it doesn't take over the Tripel. Chardonnay provided only a touch of flavor. Definitely worth picking up.

22oz bottle from batch #1, Oct 2011.

Pours hazy straw with an inch of white head. A partial skim coat and a few dots of lacing for the duration of the glass. Carbonation light for the style.

Aromatics lead off with pineapple skins, apples, bubblegum, cloves, and white wine. Hints of oak, cut grass, and musty fruit follow through.

Light bodied with a crisp mouthfeel.

Candied apples, clove-studded bubblegum, wine-soaked biscuits, and wet hay start the palate.
Shades of honey, orange marmalade, and warming alcohol step forward.

Finishes with mild brett, winey oak, and honey-drizzeled apples.

Tasty and complex. It could use a higher carbonation level and the hopping is subdued though. Perhaps batch 2 when it's fresh could be superior.

From notes. Batch 1.

A: Pours a murky straw yellow body with rocky off-white head. Good lacing.

S: Lemon, vanilla, soft oak notes (French oak?), mild brett (hay, minerals).

T: I don't pick up much in the way of tripel qualities; this doesn't have the phenolic pepper or broad swatches of fruity esters you'd get from, say, La Fin du Monde. The flavor is tightly concentrated around lemon and vanilla with a touch of pear. They're still nice, just not that developed. The aftertaste is minerally.

M: Effervescent but creamy. It finishes very smooth. Great mouthfeel.

O: I'm happy to have tried it, but it's not something I'll pick up again; at $15, it's not worth the premium over a standard tripel.

750ml, Batch 2, Nov 2012
Victory tulip

A: Hazy bright yellow orange color. Full finger of bright white head. Sheets of lacing. Nice bottle carbed brew.

S: Nice Brett forward nose here. Smells funky. Also get nice vinous notes. The hops are there too adding some interesting fruit character. Lemon. Crisp citrus.

T: Up front you get some hop character from the Sorachi Ace. Then that vinous hints. There is some sweetness, but not the traditional banana and clove flavors. There are some oak notes and rounding during sip. Love the funky character. Crisp refreshing finish. Doesn't taste like 9% unless you drink whole bottle :).

M: Medium bodied. Clean.

Anchorage Brewing, when did you get on the shelves in Indiana? And why was this bottle $16?! Well, if what I hear about this brewery is true, this expensive tripel may just be tasty enough to justify the price tag.

Brewed seven months before the date of this tasting (Batch #1, OCT/2011).

A: As soon as I try to pull the cork out, OH GOD! It pops with the force of a cannon blast. As expected, there’s a lot of carbonation – lots of soapy foam, getting up to three inches of creamy, off-white intensity. Silky webs of lacing and weightless retention keeps this one looking excellent for a while. The color is pale, straw gold, shining in the light but a bit dim and hazy otherwise.

S: A nose of moderate strength, mainly herbal notes combined with a bright, complex hoppiness. Aromas of key lime pie, clove, spicy pepper, daisies, and soft, lemony bitters. It’s played up by the yeast, vanilla, fresh sugary pastries, and light coriander esters. Quite unique, and pleasing as ever.

T: An aggressive brett presence – barnyard funk and lactic acid, with herbal, dry white wine tendencies. A leafy hop note crystallizes the yeast with a bright feeling of complex herbs, mainly lemon zest, tannic grapes, pine wood, citrus rind, and pepper. What a delicious palate…I absolutely love it. Lemon-juice-meets-vanilla comes in, reminding me of some sort of lemon cream pie (as the label suggests), though bubblegum and big, chalky berry tastes are still apparent. Aftertaste is made of a green hop bitterness and some sugary grain tastes, more straw than syrup.

M: The fizz makes its statement, that’s for sure…it’s a very foamy feel, especially in the finish, evocative of meringue or something slightly thicker. You can’t really chew it, but the carbonation is definitely textured like thick foam.

O: I am now officially excited about what Anchorage Brewing has to offer – and I’m certainly glad I bought their White IPA when I had the chance. After further inspection, it looks like this had something to do with Dogfish Head, as Sam Calagione’s name and signature are on the label. Makes sense…this beer’s astounding, a record Dogfish Head is not unfamiliar with.

A: hazy gold beer body with a finger or two of ivory froth - poured slowly on first drink to keep yeast out; drank from my Duvel tulip

S: some of the dankness of the brett, some brighter grassier notes; little bit of wood and oak

T: an interesting beer - barrel aging has imparted a wine-like flavor over a lot of the beer-ier notes of the musky brett and orchard fruits; leans toward dry, not sweet - I must confess I personally prefer a little more sweetness in a tripel

M: medium-to-heavy body; brisk carbonation; slight coating aftertaste - the brett effect; a little tart/tacky; crisper astringency than most of the tripels I've had

O: this is unique among tripels - I've had the bourbon barrel-aged tripel, the sweet fruity tripel, the tripel brewed with rice, etc. - but it seems the combination of brettanomyces yeast and barrel-aging produces a very distinct beer, which reminded me of an American wild ale blended with a Belgian strong pale ale - this was a rugged beer. You have to try it - but how you'll feel about the chardonnay barrel flavors with the brett influence is probably a matter of taste. I liked it, and while partial to the Curieux-, Karmeliet-, and Westmalle-style tripels, this beer definitely has an elegance of its own.

A - Slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin white head settling to a tiny ring of foam.

S - Sweet fruity esters, lemon, maybe pineapple juice, light but noticeable brett funk, musty, grassy, wet hay, very light oaky tannins and chardonnay notes.

T - Musty brett funk of light to medium strength, stone fruit, touch of spice, light vanilla, sweet vinous notes, yeasty esters.

M - Medium body with light carbonation giving an almost chewy mouthfeel.

D - Solid beer. Really like the Anchorage beers. Reminds me of some of the Flemish Primitive series.

750mL (batch 1, Oct. 2011) into an Ommegang tulip. Pours a clear golden color w/ a thick, bright white head, lazy carb rising from the bottom. Clumps of sticky lace cling to the glass.

Aroms is a combination of the chardonnay and brett up front. Funky, vinous, oaky, floral. Basically what I was expecting and hoping for. Intensifies as it warms, but remains in balance.

Taste is delicate, flowery. Belgian yeast lends a softness, then right behind it the chardonnay kicks in. 9% ABV completely hidden. Hops provide a nice sharp, but subtly bitter, counterpoint.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied w/ a dry finish. Possibly hindered by the lackluster carbonation.

Overall, another great beer from Anchorage. Basically exactly what I imagined a brett-fermented, chardonnay-aged tripel would smell and taste like.

Poured a deep, glowing orange with two fingers of bright white head. Aroma of lemon, caramel, biscuit, and pepper.

Moderate-to-lowish carbonation and a thick, full mouthfeel. Lemon and pepper up front followed by doughy caramel, oak, a trace of hay, and some tartness on the long finish.

Another great beer from Anchorage, although this one is a little less flashy than some of their others. Drinks much easier than 9 percent, which was well-hidden.

Thanks to Joey for bringing this one over.

Gorgeous pour with plenty of head, retention, and lace. Strong Brett aroma plus funk & booze in the nose. Quite nice.

Chardonnay barrels really come through in the taste. Funky yeast usurps the malt base as the primary flavor. Citrusy too. Booze creeps in towards the end, leaving a warming sensation in my throat after swallowing.

Another solid offering from Anchorage.

There's nothing Earth-shattering about the look. It's an attractive faded peach color, almost a milky gold like a wit. It's quite hazy. There's no head. There is a small film of white bubbles but nothing to constitute a head. A swirl livens the bubbles, but it dies quickly and leaves barely enough to call it lacing.

The nose is genius. Loads of yummy fruit come wafting from the snifter...orange, pineapple, and that crazy, funky Brett yeast. Just an amazing scent.

Sadly, the taste doesn't match the expectation. It's all hops and yeast. With the exception of orange rind and some yeasty pepper spice, ere's little else.

You expect a bit of sweetness from the way it smells bit you never get it. Extremely tart and mouth puckering, like a kriek. Not so much bitter as it is tart. A little heat from the high alcohol and the spicy yeast. Not an easy drinker.

Overall, it's very disappointing from the initial characteristics. Another swing and a miss from this brewer. I try to like them but I just don't.

B+

Batch One 10/11, 750ml into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy mid tone yellow orange, minor dense yellowish head retained nicely, nice lacing.

Aroma is a delight. Wispy citrus and pineapple, a depth of sweets, floral and fruity. As if a saison veiling a tripel. The brett gently surrounds it all, perfectly obvious yet nicely restrained.

The flavor is all about the brett, more so than is necessary. The fruits are there but now obscured. Sharp minor dry pepper bite precedes a fairly bitter finish. Full bodied mouthfeel shy of cloying. My perception of french oak chardonnay barrels is clouded by my expectation - it must be there as it is proudly noted on the bottle - however, unknowing I would never have identified this. Real or imagined, it's barely perceptible.

While this did not live up to my hopes, Anchorage Brewing is exciting.

Batch 1. Pours a murky golden color with a medium-large white head that disappears quickly. Scent is quite lovely. Tart lemon notes with light floral hops and oak. Nice Belgian yeast with some definite barnyard funk from the Brett. A bit of honey and white wine as well. Taste is initially sweet citrus fruits...lemons and a hint of orange, immediately followed by some tart lemon. Floral hop flavors with some intense french oak flavors as well. There is a ton of brett in the flavor as well. Quite complex. Finishes with some white wine, wild yeast, and bitter hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and crisp. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a fantastic beer, but I just wish I had bought another bottle. What they did with the Brett in this beer is just fantastic, so I would love to see how it ages. Crossing my fingers I find more.

Served in
a snifter

Appearance: Really looks beautiful right from the start, cloudy amber with a white head that rises to maybe 1/3" that is just right.

Smell: The smell is good I am not sure if this is what you want to smell though, feels like gouda cheese with hints of lemon.

Taste: Hardcore lemon peel, with hint of grapefruit this beer is good and but is hard to love like other tripels that I have had. It is bitter but sharp.

Mouth: Ever-sticking taste that crunches to gums. yeast is in full effect.

Overall: This is good beer, but it is very different. I have had many tripels this one stands out in many different ways. With it's yeasty taste and everlasting taste of lemons you get the feel of what complex is. Salud!

Batch #1
OCT/2011

A= Pours a nice orange color with a two finger thick crispy white head on it that holds great retention and lacing.

S= Funky, lemony, zesty. There seems to be a bit of an oak character and a little white wine. The deeper I dig it seems like the funkier it gets.

T= Very nice funk to it. Loads of funk and a bit of a lemon zest. The lemon zest actually tastes so much like lemon zest I get the oil from the skin of the lemon it tastes like. A touch of oak and chardonnay comes through but not much. Mostly funky goodness.

M= Highly carbonated and jumps off the tongue.

O= This is another home run from Anchorage. I dunno too much about the brewery besides they are making world class beers that are hard to find but avalible for just about anyone with a keen eye. Keep up the great work Gabe and I'll keep buying these. A unique experience and worth every penny.
