Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy, opaque, pulpy looking orange, with a 1.5 inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells very strongly of grapefruit juice and grapefruit peel, along with tart lemon, dirty funk, and tropical fruits.

This tastes great, almost like a wild grapefruit mimosa or something. Tons and tons of juicy and tart grapefruit flavor, along with a little bit of lactic acid, lots of Bretty funk, and some citrusy bitterness that's probably from the Galaxy and Mosaic hops. It's not particularly complex, due to the heavy handed use of grapefruit, but it's tasty and really refreshing.

This is medium bodied, with a juicy, almost pulpy mouthfeel, and a medium level of carbonation. It's really drinkable.

Another great Anchorage beer. The more I try from them the more I realize how great of a brewery they are.

Poured from the bottle into a Hill Farmstead goblet.

A - Light gold color, fine carbonation, coaxed into a very thin cap.
S - Grapefruit, ash, orange blossom and light toast.
T - Grapefruit to start, then the light honey on oak take over. Tight flavor range early on, opens
up into this smorgasbord o f fruits and light tart treats.
F - Crisp, light saison all the way. The first pass is tropical, then the dry wave moves through.
Delightfully dry, (we paired this with some super runny cheese and it was perfect) with some green grape skin tightness to close the deal.
O - What a treat, A fine offering that starts in a very defined way, ( saison) only to go far a field in the flavors.

Cheers

Review from notes on Thanksgiving.

750mL into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy warm golden color w/ a big, lasting head and lively carbonation.

Aroma is tart and oaky, bretty, funky. Lots of wet hay, citrus.

Taste follows nose. Brett yeast, bright citrus, spice. Dry oak.

Mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish, carbonation keeps it light.

Overall a really nice, very bretty saison with plenty of oak character.
