4.2/5  rDev +3.2%

With the brewers pantry opening up to elements of wood staves, wild yeast, new-wave hops and a world of herbs, spices and botanicals, a few daring ale-makers are taking full advantage of these new tools. None are going better than Anchorage and Rodney Brew proves it.

The Belgian farmhouse inspired ale pours with the common canary stained hue of those of the European lowlands, Its prism haze scatters light and brightens the ale within. Jaw-tightening and mouthwatering aromas emit as the mustiness of dried weathered citrus, vinous cork, fresh oak and earthen vegetation brighten the nose and early palate. With just enough sweet and doughy taste and texture to support, the beer's early impressions are of sweetheart candies and wood aged chardonnay.

Across the middle, the ale simply blooms- its tangy sweetness slowly trails and allows the hops and earthy components to sail. The bright taste of tangerine, pineapple, passionfruit and white grape ride along side of leather, dried citrus peel, cedar, aged oak, saddle leather, and a briny or salty nod that's not all and all that different from sweat. As the taste quickly falls on the finish, the peppery flavors from wood spice and yeast balance the fruit and tanginess for incredible taste and texture on the fatter portions of the tongue.

Its light body is held up early with creamy wheat and expressive carbonation. But as both of those fall off, the more vinous chardonnay character takes hold. Its bright acidity bounces off the tongue and evokes a high sense of refreshment- clean, crisp and bracing in its sour finish with elegant wafts of citrus, barnyard and pepper returning as echoes in aftertaste and retro-nasal aromas.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big pillowy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is stinky brett with some dank tropical fruit hops.

The flavor is sweet lemoney fruit, earthy brett and some dank fruity hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, another solid brett beer by Anchorage.

A- hazy bright gold with a thin later of white head.

S- fruity and funky Brett with melon and guava character hard to tell what's the hops and what's the yeast.

T- starts with a similar fruit and funk character as the nose but gives to a lemony tartness in the middle with a funky and citrusy finish. I don't get any wine or oak.

M- very dry with prickly carbonation. Right on point for a Brett saison.

O- enjoyable, but not anything ground breaking in terms of brettanomyces Saisons. The lemongrass is a nice twist that really plays up the lightly tart and citrusy characters of the hops and yeast.

Strong and highly complex aroma with some barnyard, flowery, citrus and herbal aspects.
As expected, the flavor is a bit more appealing than the aroma.

The is quite delicious and drinks with a great creaminess but is immensely simple in its presentation. The nose is of honeysuckle, flowers, lemon, grapefruit and melon. The flavor is a creamy lemon, floral hop cone, sweet citrus melon or mango and apricots. Very nicely done.
