4.15/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Orange-tangerine at 50% saturation (colour is somewhat muted). Fizzy head reduces to a ring pretty quickly.

S: Grassy must, earthy, some orange citrus. Smells not unlike a saison-brett, but without the spicy yeast.

T: Musty tangerine skins breaking to lemon wedges. This does not taste like an IPA with some funk. The brettanomyces are very well integrated, obviously has been given time to properly develop into something else entirely. Think well-executed saison-brett but without the spice, and more citrus character.

M: Mild carbonation which suits the silky mouthfeel.

O: I really enjoyed this, though for the cost of the bottle I don't think I'll revisit. This is a much more elegant beer than I had expected. Great complexity and maturity, you can drink this like a gueuze or nice wine.

3.58/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: This nontypical IPA pours a pale orange color that is so cloudy that I can’t see through it and is topped with ½” of white head that hangs around.
Smell: Hops dominate the aroma at first but the funk comes around near the end of the aroma. What an intriguing beer
Taste: The taste is rather odd with the combo of hops and Brett yeast and that is the exact way it tastes just kind of hard to get use to.
Mouthfeel: This is a medium bodied IPA that has a clean finish even with the Brett.

4/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a pale champagne colour, almost opaque with the cloudiness. Head is white, a bit foamy, but a bit flat now. OK.

Smells Bretty and pleasant. Tart overall but a nice hit of battery malt. Vinous at times, some citrus, barnyard and thyme. Hugely appealing, in fact.

Taste is sweeter upfront. Vanilla notes that then get all that organic funk. Barnyard, hay, lemon thyme and pepper with a touch of champagne. Quite bitter on the finish, could use a touch more tartness, but otherwise very clean and refreshing beer.

OK body; inevitable pull from the yeast but pads itself well, mostly.

Not perfect, and has some slightly overblown flavours but it's a nice, funky beer that serves as a great refresher.

3.25/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bomber into Brooklyn snifter. November '12, Batch #2

A- Pale straw colored. Fairly clear. Head that quickly subsided.

S- Lots of brett on the nose as expected being a year old. Some leather, barnyard and hay as well. Some pineapple is in there too though. Not sure if that's from the brett of the hops.

T- Def something funky on the palette. I get a little bit of the fruit from the nose but I'm getting a flavor that tastes like band aides. There is certainly some bitterness on the backend from the hops. Not sure how much I like this though. I think I would have liked this 9-10 months ago.

M- Medium bodied

O- Not sure how much I like this though. I think I would have liked this 9-10 months ago when the hops played a larger role. It was worth trying though.

Poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Batch #2 NOV/12)

A: Opaque blonde hay color.

S: Lots of farmhouse, funk and pine. The brett complicates the notes a lot. Light grapefruit.

T: I might have preferred the fresh brett-less version. It is a bit watery towards the end. This was probably much better a year ago. Lots of farmhouse and yeasty funkness. Faintly tart with an old hop pine taste. Not too much to my liking. I wish it was either a lot hoppier or more bitter/tart.

M: Bubbly but overall pretty smooth.

O: I wish there was a bigger body with bolder flavors here. It was all kind of muted. However, I thought with the Brett, that the hops might last longer (silly), but it's not like I had been aging it. I only got it like a month ago.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

750mL bottle with thanks to Chris@Slowbeer. Bottled November 2012, so we'll see how that IPA thing works out.

Cloudy pear with a substantial but airy white head that collapses over a couple of minutes sans lace.

Nose starts with a mix of classic lemony Brett sourness and tropical fruit salad. Gets funkier as it warms, doling out big-time urine, sweaty armpits and blue cheese. Even with my rugged preferences the piss thing is hard to embrace.

Strong sour-bitter citrus peel joined by earthy pine and clean spearmint. Hard to unpack where the yeast ends and the hops start. Huge lemon sherbet, but the tropical sweetness makes it very approachable. Excellent.

Feel is light for the ABV, but the hop oils add nice texture. After the initial dry punch it transitions to a 50/50 bitter/tart split that spreads evenly throughout the palate.

Well executed. The Brett dominates but it's hardly surprising given the age on this. That said it's no bad thing as aggressive hopping wouldn't necessarily improve drinkability.

Aw yeah. Mikkeller/Anchorage collaboration? You know it's going to be good. Purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne, shared with Sam and Rich.

Pours a pleasantly bright but cloudy yellow golden colour, with an initially frothy head of silky white. Body is actually a little bit lighter than I'd expect for 8% ABV, but it holds a fine bead pleasantly enough. Looks very good.

Nose is excellent: fresh and bright with clean neutral hops, laced with whiffs of funky, fruity and strangely sweet Brett characters. Slight savoury characters of beans and smoke—again, I'm sure it's the signature Anchorage Brett. In fact, it reminds me more than anything of a big fresh Jolly Pumpkin beer: bright and fresh, but with that obvious Bretted dankness to it. It's awesome stuff.

Taste is very clean and pleasant: bright clean hops through the centre of the palate and a very fine, slightly grassy, but mostly bold straight grain character lifting it through its paces. Plenty of funk comes out towards the back, giving a little shoe leather, horse blanket, oaten biscuits and a clean, very faint acidity that loses itself in the bitterness at the back.

Feel is also good. Light, slightly frothy, but bolstered by a clean acidity through the finish.

Overall: this is excellent. I think this is better than Anchorage's own Bitter Monk, although that was one of my least favourite of their (very excellent) beers. But this is a very solid basis weaved into Anchorage's signature magic. And it's an extremely good combination.

4.09/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A-Pours a hazy golden hue. Even a small pour into my sample cup brings forth a big, fluffy head. It even laces.

S-A big, funky, hoppy aroma. Brett is very strong. Also there is a bunch of tropical fruit hoppiness. The hops work well with the fruity/medicinal bretty character.

T-A bit less awesome here. The hops are fruity and lightly spicy. The wild yeast begins to overpower other elements. It still tastes damn good though.

M-The intense flavors lower the drink ability a bit but the body is very agreeable.

O/D-Really enjoyed this. The nose was better than the flavor but this was one of my favorites from Night of the Funk.

3.75/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into good nature snifter. Batch #2 nov. 2012. Love the simplicity of the bottle art. Gotta love what these guys do with the appearance of the bottle.

A: a hazy, slightly sunburst gold color. Visible amounts of carbonation with a lacy single finger head.

S: very bretty smell. Barnyard and hops mixed together. a slight cheesey smell, I'm guessing also coming from the brett in this one. Hops linger in the background, but nothing to resiny coming off in the nose.

T: sharp, tart and bitter brettanomyces hits you upfront, with a lingering medicinal flavor resting on the front of the tounge. Not as much hops coming through as I imagined I would get, that brett just overpowers everything in this beer. Slight juicy, citrusy notes. Not very boozy at all. In fact, I completely forgot it was 8% until I was nearly finished with the glass.

M: nothing to write home about here. Almost medium bodied beer with a nice balence of carbonation. Pretty refreshing.

O: definitely worth a try, but wasnt hugely impressed with this one. Will definitely look into more of mikkiller's stuff as I've heard good things. A tasty beer for sure, worth picking up if you see it.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says Batch #2 NOV 2012

A- Pours a medium golden color with a full inch of bubbly white head that retains decently before descending to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam.

S- Mm Brett, how I love thee. Notes of green olive, barnyard funk and a bit of citrus from the hops.

T- More Brett and a decent amount of bitterness to complement. Herbal aftertaste that borders on medicinal. Alcohol is wonderfully hidden. More notes of green olive plus some peach and mango.

M- Crisp and effervescent with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Took me a while to finally pull the trigger on this one since the price tag always scared me away. Once I figured out I'd never find it for any less than $15 I went ahead and bought it even while knowing that it had been sitting for months. I'm so glad I took the plunge because this is a Brett-tastic beer that has stood the test of time. Highly recommended if you're a Brettanomyces fiend like me.

A. It has a straw yellow color and its cloudy, you kind of see through. Average white head and little lacing.
S. very bready scent.
T/M. Like the scent it is quite bready, wheaty. Tangy and a bit sour and tart. It has a slight hoppy taste.
O. It is perfect for a summer day, but definitely not worth the $19 price tag.

Picked this up tonight at the Boise COOP for $14... Cheaper than any other place in town.

Pours a very hazy pale straw golden... fizzy white head dies back quickly.. light spott lacing.

Whoa... the nose is plenty hoppy.. but very buggy.. brett is big lemony essence.. grassy and some barnyard... "Farmhouse" for sure.. piney hops grow with warmth so does the brett.

Dry and dusty brett is the big player here... citrus and spicy notes play well.. green apple skin tartness... a heavy pine hoppiness is the finish almost like pine branches. Dry brett finish just lingers forever.

Very interesting.. huge carbonation and the expected body... but I doubt I will buy this again.. "one and done"... glad I got the chance, but the quality just did not make me think I want another big purchase.

A: The beer is hazy light pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of funky sourness and floral and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has sourness from the brett along with flavors of grapefruit citrus and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be quite drinkable and having a remarkable and interesting balance between bitterness and sourness.

From the bottle.

Appearance: hazy, murky yellow. Nice and cloudy. Big fluffy head that fades fast.

Nose: really enticing aromas on this one. Lemon juice, musty barn, white flowers, sweet honey. This is what I want a saison to smell like.

Taste: powerfully bitter and funky. Big grapefruit pith from the hops is up front along with a sweet horsey, barnyard flavor. There's plenty of sour lemon and underripe canteloupe in the middle. It finishes with pure grapefruit bitterness.

Mouthfeel: maybe a bit too carbonated and light on the mouth. Its very dry and astringent and I think some body would have helped to counter the intensity of these characteristics. In small doses however, the mouthfeel feels well suited.

Overall: I really enjoyed this. It had that signature Anchorage profile to it. It definitely feels more like one of Gabe's beers than one of Mikkel's, a good thing in my book. Its a funky, bitter, refreshing, and complex saison that I'd drink again.

Pours a very bright golden color. Very witish. The head is soapy and settles into a sparse cap.

The aroma is hoppy fo sure. Nice mix of fresh floral and grassy hop. Good citrus fruit and herbal note. There is some tartness and lemon from the yeast. Unfortunately resembles cat pee. It's odd but once I figured it out its not so bad.

The flavor is tart and crisp. Light sour funk mixes well with a spicy Belgian yeast. Fresh grassy hop brings the IPA to the table. Definitely a Belgian IPA with European hops. It's light and refreshing.

The feel is light with plenty of active carbonation. Tart and bitter on the palate but works well. Great beer before a meal.

A good tart Belgian IPA. The Brett shines and the others keep up. Unique.

A: into a tulip, hazy gold straw with a few fingers of fluffy white foam

S: lots of hops, pushing aromas of flowery fields, citric yet bitter fruit, and some of that brett funkiness

T: this is much more of a saison than an IPA, with lots of saison-tastes only accentuated by the use of brettanomyces - there is some "horse blanket" (lol) funk, dark grapefruits, and medicinal herbs; the malts are soft and pale, lending faint suggestions of toasted grain and watery honey-lemon sweetness

M: light, fuzzy, crisp, tart, bittering, wet to tacky

O: this beer is gonna catch some IPA lovers off-guard - I personally enjoy IPAs, Saisons, and Pale Belgians equally - so this beer was just great across the boards.

Mikkeller ApS - Invasion Farmhouse IPA

Look - Pours hazy golden yellow with a good sized fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Some retention, no lacing that stays.

Smell - Pineapple with spice, sweet and a bit cloying and funky, some floral hops are hard to pull out of the sweet. Was not sure what to think at this point but I try to keep an open mind.

Taste - Sour and farmhouse typical, brett then rages in a strange sweet tingly numbing like cough syrup and then floral/grassy bitter/pine pitch or sap hops.

Mouthfeel - Rests pine pitch hop bitter and fades quite quickly, I liked this part. Lightly warming but not overly boozy. Dry and decent drinkability.

Overall - Not one of my personal favorites, but unique to say the least. Super brett punch, a bit extreme, would not recommend unless you want tart and sour, some would absolutely love this brew, I am not one of them.

750ml bottle $15. I picked this up based off of the collaboration with Anchorage. I was hoping it would be like Bitter Monk and it was not but it was still very interesting. I normally never rate the appearance of a beer less than 4.0 but this one just looked weird, extremely murky and yellow-white. Brackish looking, mucky. Aroma was almost all brett, super lemons and a touch of hay, very interesting. Flavor was very bitter and super lemony. This actually reminded me of Saison Brett due to the lemon aspect. Overall this was very interesting but not something I'd ever need a second glass of.

This is beyond funky the brett is overbearingly bitter and perfumey, however that's what they were going for over the top Farmhouse IPA with brett. Pours a hazed apricot golden orange hue with a white light bubbly head which dissipates rather quickly. Speckled lacing left behind the label is pretty badass with a stack of hops and Mikkeller wallpaper tricoloration. The makeup of the beer is strikingly the similar to some of the other IPAs from Anchorage brewing, minus cumquats and peppercorns. Aroma tart tropical fruits with citric grapefruit peels, funky barnhouse notes, a bit of cat pee, and horse blanket this brew brings the funk. When gulped the floral and citrus perfume notes come to the forefront with a bitter bite that you likely won't forget until you brush your teeth the next day. This is similar in tartness to some of the probiotics on the market with multiple strains of good bacteria, yeast, etc. Maybe this beer will regulate your digestion and cure our IBS. It's hard to detect malt sweetness because of the brett layers, and bittering C-hops utilized this bottle is labeled batch #2 and dated November 2012 and it's been kept refrigerated since it's release. A bit of warming alcohol effects the palate and mid gut, bitter layers of everything mentioned does become cloying and carbonation is trying to carry you through it but fails to do so. Overall a miss beer for me big time, I'm sure there's a market of crazy beer folks out there that would care for this but I'm just not one.

I cannot believe this beer is rated as poorly as it is here on BA. this is without a doubt one of the most interesting and enjoyable beers I can remember, and one that I would drink everyday if it came in reasonably priced six packs. as I understand it, this is the invasion ipa fermented with brett in collaboration with anchorage brewing in Alaska. it pours a sort of lackluster yellow color, thick from all the sediment, and boasting several inches of airy white foam. the nose is insane, so much bretty funk going on, farmy and floral at the same time, with a massive dose of high alpha hops, probably some of the C varieties, but I cannot be sure. it is mouthwateringly tart, and intimidatingly bitter. the flavor is the best of both worlds. huge fruity and summery hop notes up front, that tussle with the wild yeast to produce a really different bready not quite sourness that is almost impossible to describe because it is unlike anything else ive tasted in my life. the hops come back in the finish, with some citric bitterness and a bit of acid that allows it to finish clean and remarkably dry. you would never in a million years know this was 8% abv. fuller bodied mouthfeel because of all the micro yeast suspended within it, and very bright carbonation, which gives it a lot of life and pep. Overall this is an incredible beer, that satisfies my needs for both a funky brew and a hoppy bomb. its a perfect union really, and I cannot wait to drink this again. it takes a lot to impress me after all these beers, but this one has really got me stoked. get yourself some if you see it, its worth any price.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch #2, bottled November 2012. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy straw gold color with a couple inch frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is very nice, the brew smells like grassy and citrusy (mango, lemon peel, grapefruit) hops, funk, white grapes and bready malt. It tastes like citrusy (tropical fruit, lemon peel, grapefruit) and grassy hops, brett, apricots, and some herbal/floralness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and creamy, and is well carbonated. I think it's a good brew, and definitely worth a try. $13.99 a bottle.

poured aggressively, leaving a nice thick head that dies down pretty quickly. golden yellow in color. smells excellent, a real saison like smell, very funky. leaves a little IPA-ish aftertaste but overall, very reminiscent of a saison. carbonation is definitely not overkill and the booze is very well hidden. i like this beer a lot and i'd have it again.

Pours a hazy straw color with a quickly fading white head that leaves almost no lacing.

Smells of big funky and grassy notes with some fruit undertones.

Tastes of the big funky notes with earthiness and fruits on top. Funk leads off with grass and hay notes. Fruits come through and add some sour apple along with pears and white grapes. Citrus also comes through and adds to the fruitiness. A bit of bready malt comes through and adds body. Ends with an earthy spice that rounds out the entire profile.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a frothy amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is quite tasty and I am glad I grabbed a bottle.
