one of the more interesting and delicious beers ive had in some time. very very impressed with my first beer from anchorage. pours a hazy pale yellow color, creamy looking, with one of the most prominent, airy, long lasting, bone white heads ive ever seen, rising well above the rim of my globe. fluffy! the nose is crazy, lots of bitter hops, quite a bit of citrus too from the kumquats, and of course the brett, which is subtle but definitely a contributor. the flavor is super complex, but perfectly balanced. I would leave the coriander out, as I think it doesn't add a ton to the flavor that couldn't be there otherwise, but it does sort of crowd a some stuff out. wheat malt first, with the Belgian witbier yeast and some lemon pepper stuff, which I guess is aided by the peppercorn addition, works well with the yeast anyway. it gives way to a fruity hop bitterness that's really intense, and there is some acid from the wine barrels that exacerbates this. there is a ton going on here, and the bretty bitter finish is unique and memorable. white ipa with galaxy hops, coriander, kumquat, peppercorns, wit yeast, then aged in wine casks, dry hopped with galaxy, and conditioned with brett. its insane, and it works. light airy feel from the carbonation, it seems almost too light to handle all the flavor, but it does somehow. a really phenomenal beer that im sure a quantum physicist is behind, its just so advanced...

750ml bottle into a snifter; split with RB's jtclockwork at the Manhattan Gingerman.

A: Clear pale gold body with a finger of frothy head on top. Pretty good retention thanks to a steady stream of bubbles welling up from below. Light lace. Ok.

S: Powerful yet elegant mixture of fresh herbal hoppiness and profoundly grassy Brett. Light citrus fruit as well, and some peppery spice behind it all. Amazing.

T: Follows the nose. Tasty fruity + herbal hops up front, funky Brett midway through, and a dry, spicy finish. Profound spiciness on the aftertaste. Great stuff.

M: Quite prickly and overly effervescent, but smoothing out after a moment. A bit much.

O: I wish the bottle conditioning had been a bit less enthusiastic, as a creamier mouthfeel would have gone a long way toward accentuating the amazing flavors going on in this hugely complex beer. That one flaw aside, this was up there with my favorite Belgian IPAs of all time - I liked it far more than Bitter Monk.

A - Pours a nice cloudy straw color, lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle leading to an unfiltered straw color. This thing was seriously a bitch to pour, every ounce of beer = at least an ounce of head. Pretty good retention. Really the head is just out of control, otherwise great

S - Coriander, citrusy orange/wheat type aromas, plenty of mild but citrusy hops. A nice combination of spices, fruit and bitter hops.

T - Imagine a white rascal, saison du buff and a wallop of hops into one. Lots of spiced clove/coriander flavors mixed with a really nice orange type of citrus flavor with some nice lighter but prominent hops flavor. Brett/slight funk in there with the orange as well.

M - light-medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, well done.

O - Very very tasty, im not big into Belgian wheat's but this was a fantastic combination of belgian wheat/orange, spices, and hops/bitterness. While drinking all I could think was "well worth the $17.50".

Lemon yellow brew with a bright white head; excellent retention.

Nose is all Brett: funky, citrusy, and tart.

Flavor is much more balanced overall, although it's still clearly Brett-forward. What hops remain are likely reflected only in the strong bitterness, but the overall profile gives off plenty of tart citrus and even pineapple, balanced against rustic funk and a solid, wheat-and-cracker malt bill.

Exceptional drinkability: lively and smooth, active and medium.

This beer doesn't really scream "White" IPA, as I don't really get any traditional Belgian yeast flavors or spices. Brett is the real show-stopped here, especially with an aged bottle.

2013 vintage (aged a full two years).

750ML bottle
Served in a tulip glass
Batch #3 Aug/2012

A - It is pretty pale in color. I would call it straw. It is hazy. Each pour gives me a mountain of champagne-like bubbles.

S - I get some white wine aromas and some brett. Hell, I even notice some of the coriander.

T - The taste is vinous at first. Then I get a little funk. Some alcohol and coriander creep in at the end.

M - Medium with a boatload of carbonation.

O - I read the bottle, and it sounded great. I poured the bottle, and it looked great. I tasted the beer, and it was pretty darn good. I really like everything about this beer, except that I only purchased one bottle.

Poured into a tulip.

Hazy straw with an explosive 4-5 fingers of fluffy white head. Excellent head retention and low carbonation.

Wheat, lemongrass, hay, barnyard, white wine, potpourri, notes of kumquat, hints of pineapple.

Very earthy and packed with barnyard and potpourri. Wet hay, lemongrass, kumquat skins. Hints of pineapple and subtle passion fruit. Hops are balanced right between tropical and highly floral. Tons, tons, tons of barnyard. Light notes of white wine and dried oak. Finishes with some grapefruit zest and black peppercorn.

Light bodied, crisp, juicy and uber-dry.

Extremely complex. Huge Brett notes throughout; earth, funk and dried hay. Tropical fruits, wheat and spice. A blend between a Wit, American IPA, funky Saison and a white wine. I couldn’t really ask for anything more.

750 ml corked bottle poured in a chalice. The bottle has two intro paragraphs describing various frontiers of human achievement, plus some information about the white IPA in the bottle. Quite amusing. The beer pours yellow in color, with a thin white head. The first smell that hit my nose was grapefruit, then a bit of tangerine. A lot of citrus and fruit notes. The taste is like a fruit salad at first, transitioning to a bitter hop flavor once it reaches the back of your palette. The finish is a bit of oak and herbs, and the spices are noticeable. Overall, excellent.

Thanks to Brad for sharing this with us the other day, served in a snifter.

Beer is yellow and hazy with a thin white head of small bubbles, some lacing, moderate to high carbonation.

Aroma is bretty, Bretty c and b and some fruits with a nice hoppiness, earthiness to follow.

Beer is light in body and very effervescent on the palate, stinging and sweet, with a late oakiness and funk with a nice hop palate. I'd have it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Very hazy yellow with a fluffy/rocky white head. Superb lacing and moderate retention.

Smell: Sweet citrus and kumquat (really came through) and maybe a little tropical from the hops, as well as peppery yeast spice notes and some esters. There is also a solid brett presence, some nice earthy, barnyard tones to it.

Taste: Similar to the aroma, nice bitterness up front with a big carbonation bite and some nice citrusy hop character and yeast spice to follow. The wheat give a nice refreshing tartness and plays incredibly well into the yeast/brett character. The brett presence is not a front runner in the flavor, but is very noticeable still. The earthy tones play wonders with the hops, beautiful use of all parts of the brewing process. The mouthfeel is thin but high in carbonation and very dry, makes for an insanely drinkable brew.

Overall: Complex and very unique in terms of flavor profile. I absolutely loved this beer, although I am quite the lover of all things hoppy and all things brett. There are many different parts of the brewing process that played major roles in the final product, frequently this would lead to a beer with muddled flavors, but not this one, incredible balance. Can't wait till my next trip to alaska, great fishing and now great belgian-style ales!

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.

The beer is very hazy and appears golden to straw yellow hued. The head is pure white, rapidly fading to a thin, wispy layer.

The aroma offers brettanomyces, oak, fruits (maybe kiwi, passion fruit, star fruit), hops, coriander, peppercorns. Really interesting and nice.

The flavor is also quite good. Lots of brett. Deliciously tart. Certainly not a normal witbier, saison, or IPA, but rather a hybrid of the three.

Lovely mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness and wild yeast. Fabulous.

Overall, this was delightful. I am already looking forward to having it again.

Appears a hazy straw toned yellow with a huge fluffy white cap that slowly fades into a gentle head of fluff. Scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of tropical fruit, pineapple, papaya, white pepper, ripe peaches, and earthiness...yum. I'm very happy with this beverage. :)
Taste is of the aromas with a sweet tropical flavor up front followed by earthy herbs, minerals, and juicy nectarines.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, and dry.

22 oz. bottle corked and caged. Served in Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A - Pours a golden pale straw. Pretty clear when poured without the yeast sediment. 2.5 fingers of bright white head slowly melt into deep mounds leaving sudsy lacing behind.

S - Brett is the first thing picked up after popping the cork. It mixes with bright citrus zest - tangerine, mandarin, and touch of lemon. Dry coriander, and green herbal notes come through as it warms. Brett is plentiful and fills the glass with a demanding funk.

T - Acidic citrus zest blast the palate. Citrus oil, white grape skins, pineapple, green herbs, coriander. Very crisp and clean. The brett adds flavors of damp straw but isn't as involved as the aroma. The finishes with dry grapefruit pith.

M - Moderate carbonation, big bubble champagne-like, light and flowing across the palate, finishes bitter and dry.

Very nice! Galaxy hops combined with Brett is a dream come true. Super fresh and juicy flavors contrasted by the mustiness of the brett just works. Brett is way stronger in the aroma than the flavor. Highly recommended!

A huge thanks to Dan (DSlim71) for this beer. Cheers buddy!

Appearance – Pours a relatively clear, straw color with about two fingers of head that dissipates quickly leaving spotty lacing.

Smell – A wonderful citrus aroma; lemon, grapefruit, peach, etc. Slight funk, straw, and a hint of a malty backbone.

Taste – A tart bready flavor up front along with wheat, straw, and slight barnyard funk. Nice hops, pine, and lemon zest. Coriander, clove, and white pepper. Finishes up slightly tart yet caramel sweet.

Mouthfeel – Medium to lighter bodied, plentiful prickly carbonation, finishes dry.

Overall – A very interesting beer for sure. A “hybrid” IPA, Wit, and Saison in my opinion. Quite enjoyable and extremely quaffable. Very glad to try this beer. Thanks again Dan!

A - Big, loose bubbled head with ok retention and lace. Hazy, banana yellow body.

S - Light sourness, pear, white peach, french oak, chablis.

T - Distinct brett sourness, tart apple, white grape, oak, orange extract. Excellent balance.

M - Nice smoothness. Medium frame.

O - A great take on a white IPA; the brett adds a nice layer of complexity while still keeping the balance in check. Stellar execution.

Chill hazed straw gold with a white head leaving foamy lace.

Smell is peppery, spices or brett, not sure, with some tropical esters and more skunk as it warms.

This had a more robust hop presence when it was first released - and I could have swore I reviewed it! The spices seem more robust, particularly the peppercorn. Less kumquat. The skunk of the hops really comes out as it warms, but not overpowering the depth of the brett and spices.

Mouthfeel is on the dry, medium-light bodied side.

Drinkability is pretty good. It's got a bite to it, a complex pungency of hops, brett, sour spice and fruit. But the blonde pedigree give's it more than a semblance of digestibility.
Overall, the creativity of this recipe, in combination with the difficult but successful execution, is what really sets it apart.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Back of bottle says Batch #7 Oct/2014.

A- Pours a hazy light golden color with a 3/4 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Bright Brett aroma commingles with the bright citrus of the hops. The funk is more of a clean one that adds to the zesty nature of the hop fume.

T- Refreshing taste of citrus and spice with the Brett providing an extra kick to everything. Mild bitterness and overall a very light flavor. Mild tartness on the backend from the kumquats. Tropical fruit flavor comes through more as it warms.

M- Tight and spritzy with medium-high carbonation and a very light body.

O- A damn tasty Brett IPA. I kind of wish this came out in the summer since it would taste even better under the hot sun. All the ingredients in this beer work harmoniously to create a unified flavor profile.

First time trying a brew from these guys; here it goes…

Pours a rather cloudy golden/straw yellow. I poured a bit haphazardly and was greeted with a huge milky white head that settled at about two fingers-worth. Left a nice bit of lacing as well. Looks like a nice saison.

If the beer looked like a saison, it certainly smelled like one; I got lots of brett as well as some barnyard funk/hay. Definitely some coriander and other spices as well, while a few citrusy notes lurked underneath. Pretty complex-smelling though the brett definitely dominated.

The taste was lovely. Began like a nice spicy witbier, before segueing into some light, but sweet fruit flavors (such as citrus and I swear I taste a little apple as well) that I'd expect in a Belgian Tripel. Doesn't really taste much like an IPA until the finish, where some hop bitterness definitely comes through. Like the nose, very complex but definitely not in your face. There's solid carbonation throughout and there's overall a pretty medium mouthfeel; not too thin and not too viscous.

Overall a pretty fantastic beer which I'd find a bit difficult to categorize; you get the look and scent of a saison, the taste of some hybrid of spicy witbier and belgian tripel, and the finish of an IPA. Really great stuff - would definitely purchase again.

Anchorage is quickly becoming "Jolly Pumpkin of the North" and this beer is no exception. Makes me long for the days Calabaza Blanca was in six packs.

Huge billowing head of soap suds, clinging to the glass, sparkling and threatening to spill over the edge of the glass. Pale pastel yellow, highly charged carbonation. Great long lasting coverage, though the dish soap look (somewhat common with Brett beers) isn't all that flattering, but not that important in the scheme of things.

Softly woody and fruity aroma, Brett yeast is present at a moderate level, with some galaxy hop fruitiness playing a minor role.

Bare hints of sweetness in between the oaky middle and dry bitter finish. Grapefruit pith, oak, champagne. Dry and clean, equal parts Brett funk and galaxy hop bitterness, with touches of coriander/pepper in the background. Nicely structured, complex layers emerge and lend unique aspects to the beer. If you ever dreamed of a hoppy version of Calabaza Blanca, this is it.

750ml corked and caged bottle. No date visible on the bottle. Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a well hazed pale straw gold color. A huge three finger cap of fluffy white foam lingers for a long time, slowly falling and leaving behind sheets of lace on the glass.

S - Lots going on here...pine, tons of citrus - fresh oranges and lemons, apples, pears, coriander, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg. Very fruity and spicy on the nose. Slight hint of earthy and lightly funky brett aroma. Pretty sure this bottle is still pretty young, so not surprising that this is still on the low side. Overall this smells great...really making me long for the first sip.

T - Coriander and black pepper towards the front. Lots of oranges, lemons, limes. More earthy brett in the flavor...touch of funk but may be more sublimal than actually there. Sweet up front, but finishing pretty dry with some woody and grainy flavors at the end. Hops are strong in a good way...I get a big hit of resiny pine that stays from the start of each sip until well past the swallow.

M - Somewhat light but leaning towards medium bodied. Strong carbonation tingles on every sip. Sticky and resiny hops throughout, spicy and fruity...starts sweet and ends up on the drier side. Complex.

O - Not exactly a textbook witbier or IPA. This is my first experience with Anchorage due to the high cost of these bottles...but this bottle was given to me, so happy to give it a try. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by this one. There really is a whole lot going on in this beer and it defies classification a bit. I tend to throw this into my somewhat catch-all style of saison...but its even on the fringes of that as well. Might think about getting another bottle of this (if I find a deal) and let it age for a while to see what kind of effect the brett has on this for an extended aging.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; batch 3, bottled 8/2012. Cork shot the ceiling upon cage removal. Pours lightly cloudy bright golden amber color with a 3 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange peel, pear, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, pepper, clove, coriander, white wine, light oak, floral, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and wine barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon zest, orange peel, peach, pineapple, pear, pine, coriander, clove, pepper, white wine, light oak, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderately earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, peach, pineapple, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, white wine, light oak, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and moderate wine barrel flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very crisp, prickly, and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic wild Belgian IPA! All around awesome balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and barrel flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

A: Super hazy honey color with a huge bone white head that leaves great lacing down the glass and stays forever.

S: Fantastic smell. Candied orange and juicy mandarin orange, a touch of oak, some great barnyard funk, a touch of coriander and some white pepper.

T: Not as good as the smell, but still pretty tasty stuff. Opens with a touch of citrus sweetness and then moves towards a more bitter middle and finish with grapefruit pith, brett, biscuity malt and some peppery hops.

Poured from corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a tulip style glass.

A: A cloudy, hazy, pale yellow gold or light straw color with an overflowing amount of tight, white foam leaving a four inch head - an inch over the glass. In fact the carbonation continues to bubble under the head.

S: Funk dominates on the nose, you get the Brett with a little lemon zest and black pepper.

T: Lots of Brett funk with the lemon zest, pepper and now some coriander, overlayed with some oak tannins from the barrel. A very complex and interesting and flavor profile.

M: A champagne like light, crisp taste. I like a little more malt presence.

O: Why you would call this an IPA, I don't know, but it's an interesting, complex beer to sip on the porch when the weather changes. An excellent brew.

750ml bottle poured in SFBW Chalice

A: Hazy pale straw with a huge head that sticks around for a long time and leaves a lot of lacing behind. Looks a lot like a witbier that's been seriously messed with. Which this is.

S: Huge Galaxy hops. Citrus, resin, humidity, herbs. And then big brett funk.

T: Galaxy huge here, too. A lot of citrus and wet hops. Lots of resin. Tastes like Cuba. Improves pretty much by the sip. Lots of peppercorn spice and coriander. A bit of very tart citrus, hard to say if it's from kumquats or the Galaxy. Rating this a 4.5 for its style, which is better than the vast majority of IPAs and the vast majority of wits. Is it a new style? Maybe.

M: Soft carbonation. Drying, like a lightly oaked chardonnay. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the sensual feast here.

O: My favorite Anchorage beer since Bitter Monk and maybe my favorite overall. I can't believe this beer isn't getting any hype. At some point, Anchorage will be recognized for its greatness, and people won't complain about the price, they'll offer their whole cellars to get their hands on it. What Gabe's doing is virtually unprecedented outside of Belgium. Can't wait to see what he does next. Can you say Quad?

Bottle from an online shop. Served in a Mikasa tulip.

Pours a nice, clear light golden color with a huge, foamy white head with really nice retention. As it finally falls, there's plenty of lacing left behind. Half-inch cap throughout.

The nose carries some really nice Brett notes -- there's some very light hay and straw plus a bit of pineapple and lemon zest. Slight pepper component there as well as mild Galaxy notes. The Brett and additions seem to be more prevalent than the hops, though everything is quite balanced.

The flavor is quite nice as well, though it doesn't quite live up to the nose. The Brett is the focus here and, while quite nice, it doesn't let some of the other components from the nose shine as much. Body is light and crisp with nice carbonation and a very dry finish. Moderate bitterness on the palate and then continuing through the finish.

Overall, really nice use of Brett and I could have gone for a bit more hops in the flavor, but that's a minor complaint considering how much I'm enjoying this one.

The beer pours a pale golden yellow with an extremely large craggy white head that refuses to die down leaving thick gobs of foamy rings. Smells enjoyably of musty yeast, apple, pear and coriander. 

The hops provide a spicy flavor that is less prominent than in the nose. With the coriander prominent in the finish. The yeast that has a musty barnyard character comes and goes prevalent midway through tasting and again on the finish. There is a consistent fruity flavor throughout of crisp apples and pear. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium, but very lively due to the great amount of carbonation. 

A very unique beer. It is difficult to say what the aging in oak wine tanks has done, but there is a greater complexity present that I have difficult picking out the individual favors that may be due to the aging. Very enjoyable.
