Poured from a 750mL bottle.

Milky gold. Lustrous. Smells amazing. Tart lemons, zesty, hint of herbalness. Brett is more overwhelming after I tasted it.

Tastes great. Really gentle flavor, but lightly hoppy. Fruity, herbal, and delicious. Citra is obvious, aftertaste is white pepper and spice, saison yeast is present but mild. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Very good, interesting, worthwhile beer. Would have again. Recommended.

750ml bottle, Batch #3 dated February 2014, poured into an Anchorage teku.

The beer pours a very hazy, cloudy, golden straw color, hues of orange and copper with some noticeable activity at the bottom of the glass that fades quickly into the fog of the beer. A nice, thick, 3 finger head, white and soapy rests atop the beer that has phenomenal retention and leaves nice tracks of spotted lace behind. The aroma is really wonderful, bright and citrusy, lemongrass comes out well with the citra hops, but there are some nice undertones of oak, bretty funk, straw, pale grain, light yeasty spice and wildflower. The flavors are nice, plenty of bright citrus, wildflower and lemongrass, tangy fruit character with some nice bretty funk, pale grain, mild oak, light yeasty spiciness that produces a nice sharpness to the beer, but overall it's very delicate and has nice brightness to the flavors. The mouthfeel is good, coats very well, carbonation is lively but not abrasive, feels soft and fluffy across the tongue with some nice tartness and an easy finish that is lightly dry.

Verdict: A very, very enjoyable saison from Anchorage. I didn't really know what the expect from this guy, but the more it warmed and opened up, the more I found myself enjoying it. It's right in my wheelhouse when it comes to flavors and profiles and this is certainly one of the better American made saisons I've tried, bright, floral and delicate with nice underlying funk and spice.
