Shared by Richard - thanks.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a solid half-inch thick white head which fades slowly and yields spotty lace.

N: Grapefruit and funk along with wheat and some lemony zest.

T: Saison-like yeast, peppery and herbal spices, some stone fruit notes.

M: Moderate body and carbonation. Finishes dry, funky, yeasty and wheaty.

O: Impressed with this one. Wish I had one of my own.

4.24/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: 4 Hazy, orange-gold with a fairly large off-white head.

S: 4.25 Lots of lemon, grapefruit, and funk on the nose. A bit of a mineral aroma that works well with the brett and esters. Mild hops on the end that add some pine and more lemon.

T: 4.25 A touch sweet at first, followed quickly by grapefruit, pepper, saison yeast, and a big dose of funk. The light tartness from the brett compliments the oak flavors, but it all kind of gets a bit lost with the sweetness. Like the nose, the hops on the finish bring lemon and pine flavors which compliment the grapefruit very well and add a slightly bitter finish.

M: 4.25 Pretty full bodied and fairly viscous for a saison. There could be a bit more carbonation, but the dry finish helps out and makes the flavors linger.

O: 4.25 This beer is interesting and very easy drinking. It was a bit one dimensional at first (grapefruit really dominated), but as it opened up there was more going on and was quite balanced.

Bright citrus and tropical fruit - orange, grapefruit, pineapple. Has the house brett funk flavors, but very well integrated to enhance the fruit, not so much rusty and funky. High acidity but not overly so. Overall, a great American sour, and one of Anchorage's best. Very light body, dry. Extremely drinkable.
