3.83/5  rDev -0.8%

Poured from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip. Cellar temp. The twister on the cage broke on me. Pain in the ass to get the cage off.

Appearance- Beautiful clear pink with quick one finger off-white head that left light lacing.

Smell- Lime and hibiscus are definantly there as well as the brett, but there's also some super funky cat piss element to this. A warm funk at the end.

Taste- A very toned down Convivial Suarez. The flavors of Lime, hibiscus, brett, oak, are all there, but really light. Doesn't pop as much as convivial.

Mouthfeel- Very very light. High carbonation. Super light body. Light tartness. Relatively dry.

Overall- A drinkable, descent saison from a collaboration between two outstanding breweries. Why is this beer so mediocre?

Great pink lemonade color. Nice hazy pink grapefruit. Nice bubbly white head and thin collar. Aroma is a sweet floral hibiscus, slight tart citrus and slight dry/tart yeast funk. Taste is that floral-funk combo at the front, some Brett/lime tart in the middle, then fades back to the hibiscus. Nice light body and medium-light carbonation.

750ml bottle, split

Sporting a similar billing as the dazzling Brother Soigne, I snagged a few of these immediately from bottleworks. This is the 2nd anchorage/hill farmstead collaboration that I'm familiar with - surprisingly pink body, light bubbly carbonation. It's still relatively mild with the brett really pretty soft - i think a few years will transform this beer pretty dramatically. The lime and hibiscus play nicely - here's hoping these two breweries keep collaborating as they're definitely two favorites on my shortlist.
