3.94/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is cloudy straw yellow with a fluffy white head with big bubbled thick foamy lace with long lasting cling.

Smell is a pleasantly complex melange of tropical fruits. Pineapple, lemon and lime most definitely, with a little must.

Taste is floral. The various citrus aspects of the hops, lemongrass and brett come together with a some what soapy, perfume like quality. Some definite barnyard behind the pineapple. The lemongrass gains intensity as I work through it.

Mouthfeel is light, dry, a little oily. Full carbonation makes it swishy, burpy. Some resinous hop oils.

Drinkability is pretty solid. I think the lemongrass is a touch too much, as it most always is in my opinion. Once you can identify the adjunct, there's too much. I think the citra hops and brett exaggerate it as well.

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.
