look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into HF Tulip. Not sure of the year bottled, but im assuming 2013.
Popped cork and brett funk filled the nose (and I opened this outside!)
Pours a nice golden color with a healthy froathy head. Really nice carbonation.
Aromas of brett funk, slight floral notes, and a tad of caramel or sweet notes maybe??
Taste is fruity brett funk with a definite floral punch...a nice sweet fruity caramel finish. The typical saison like flavors are somewhat muted but still know its a saison.
Its really dry...pretty much perfect. I mean this is an absolute perfect mouthfeel for me. Really nice carbonation, dry, but still chugable with a bitter kick to finish.
Overall, this is an amazing brew as you can expect from Gabe. Really freakin awesome!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Despite a fairly underwhelming hue and carbonation, this is a well balanced sour ale. The nose is fine blend of barnyard funk and fresh hops - a little different than the usual saison. The wild yeast comes through again on back of the tongue and is joined by light fruit - raspberries perhaps? The finish is dry yet lingers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a corked and caged bomber dated August 2012 Batch 2 into a snifter. Note: I'm reviewing the day after I opened the beer, was too busy drinking the beer yesterday to be able to write a review. The beer was sealed with the same cork it had originally.

Appearance: A hazy deep amber with a moderate head that doesn't stick around too long, and leaves a bit of lacing around after it's gone. A thin crown persists as the beer quickly disappears down my throat.

Smell: Reminds me of Le Terroir. The hop scent is definitely still there, although I'm sure more muted than if this were fresh. I get some floral character too, can't be sure if that's from the rose hips or the brett. A bit of tartness on the nose, but not too much.

Taste: Lovely! The hops still come through a bit, and add a hint of bitterness to the beer, and a nice citrus quality that pairs well with the tartness. This isn't a ridiculously sour beer, it's very moderate and eminently drinkable. There is a lot of depth here. Some vinous flavor comes through on the finish, as does a light bready malt. I'd love to try this fresh.

Mouthfeel: Moderately carbonated (possibly less so because the beer was opened the day before), the beer dances across my palate as I drink it down.

Overall: I wish I could buy this stuff anywhere. Really a very very nice beer. Not much to complain about at all. Heck my roommate, who is not much of a beer guy, was disappointed to hear I wouldn't be able to get this again easily.

Bottle dated August 2012, Batch #2

- Pours a hazy bronze orange with a healthy inch of foam that dissipates quickly.

- Notes of fruit tart, floral saison, and bitter hops.

- A mild fruit tart fills the mouth and transitions into floral and spice notes. The finish is a little funky and the surprising hop bitterness lingers for a bit.

- Overall a solid beer. The fruit sour and floral saison characteristics add complexity to this beer, but also make it sort of muddled, especially with the bitter hopped finish. I would prefer a stronger sour fruit tartness profile.

4.31/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Date on bottle reads August 2012

Appearance: Pours with a light head of about a finger and a half. Orange color with accents of blood red. Light to average active carbonation active in glass while drinking. Some random lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Filled with sour grapes and a grassy, earthy aroma. Orange peel and some tropical fruits can be picked up as well. A solid hoppy backbone with accents of straw and pine as well. That dirt like earthy aroma keeps popping back up and adding some unique tones to this aroma.

Taste: Incredibly smooth front on this brew which I assume has mellowed from age. Earthy accents to this saison mix well with some sour grapes. The body and back end have developed into a funky tart flavor which is complex and interesting. The finish is like I said a lot of funk with some tropical tones still left from the Citra dry-hopping.

Mouthfeel: Excellent transitions of sweet to a dry finish. Palate is left dazzled with everything going on here.

Overall: There was one bottle of this left on the shelf and I may have to go back and get it. I would love to have tried this brew fresh as well too. Outstanding complexity and a truly interesting drinking experience.

I can't praise this beer enough. My absolute favorite. Tastes as advertised, complexity comes in waves. Different aspects shine through as the beer warms or is swished in the mouth, or as the aftertaste is appreciated rolling the tongue between the gums and cheeks. I've shared every bottle I've had, and I inevitably wish I had opened and warmed another as the bottle nears its finish.

Cheers to Anchorage for doing everything right.

A: Cloudy orange leans towards pink (think pink grapefruit juice). Voluminous head if not poured carefully.

S: Citrus, rose, wine, floral hops

T: Wonderful complexity, ventures far from a typical saison. Follows smell with the addition of oak and light funk

M: Brilliant sediment, silky, bubbling

O: My not deliver if expecting normal saison qualities, but I'm in love

750ml bottle that I shared with my friend, Keelan. These Anchorage beers aren’t cheap but if the rest are like this one, I am up for moer. Orange-yellow color, small but visible head and a bit of lace. The nose is really incredible in how intriguing it is. I knew right away I liked it but I just have to keep inhaling away to try and figure out what I smell. This beer sets the standard for complex aromas. Its sort of perfume, candy, a touch of brett hiding in the back, slightly earthy, slight touch of alcohol. After reading the bottle it came to me. It's the rose hips. The taste is pretty damn crazy too, funky with sweet, sour, and bitter all in equal portions. Unique. Surprisingly pleasant. This one is fit for a very special occasion.

Batch 1 poured into a KtG tulip

A- pours with a orange/amber color with a slight red hue in the middle and a frothy thick head, good looking beer!

S- this is where the age makes its appearance as there is nothing but brett here; pineapple, hay/barnyard, nothing else..all brett

T-The brett obviously shines through first with some pineapple, hay, funk then there's a bit of a vinous tang, finishes floral and more brett; its been soo long since ive had it fresh that I do forget a bit what it was like, but I like how the brett has developed in this beer.

M- dry, crisp while still remaining some semblance of a body

O- Fantastic beer and age has really allowed the Brett to develop into something nice, but I think any further and the light wine notes that are still present may no longer linger. Drink Up!

Picked up a bottle in NY and was excited to try.
Pours a big head that lingers
Smells of light citrus (orange/lemon)
Taste has similar citrus with a tiny bit of the Noir bottles shining through.
Overall a beer you want on a summer evening and would buy again

Poured from a 750 bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Golden orange-ish hue. Pours a finger and a half, bubbly, white head. Settles fairly quickly. Rising effervescence throughout. Slight lacing mostly retreats back into the body.

S: Wheat and prominent amounts of raspberry.

T: Tastes like is smells... light wheaty grains and bitter fermented raspberry.

M: Light body, biting bitterness. Very acidic. Something of a carbonated feel to it. Kind of stale carboardy finish that hangs on the palate.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, decent head, but no real lacing. Nose is wheaty, and grainy, and fruity. Light and wheaty with lots of fermented raspberry. Bitter and acidic with something of an off-putting final step. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

I have trouble finding saisons that I can appreciate, but I thought this one hit all the high points of what the style should be. Love Buzz is worthy of the buzz.

Poured into a sampler snifter, the saison was a golden orange color with a slight white head with huge bubbles. The aroma was anything but subtle with a peppery and Earthy aroma. On even gets notes of orange in the aroma. In the initial taste, one detects notes of mango, pineapple, tart apples, a hint of sour candy, and the barnyard funk that is emblematic of the style. As the taste evolves into a dry tart apple taste the aftertaste. The mouthfeel proves to be smooth and perhaps a little sticky. One may find his/herself wishing the taste would linger a little longer. If the staying power disappoints, just buy another bottle. This is really good stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Batch No. 2 August/2012

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Light semi-resilient lacing.

S- Very fruity with notes of tangerine, mango and papaya. You can also really smell the Brett but it's a clean aroma and not as sharp as other Brett-infused beers I've had.

T- Very complex barrage of fruity sweetness, Brett funk and a bit of barrel presence. Still very clean and tame all things considered. Has a decent amount of tartness to offset the sweetness. Alcohol is very well-masked and is only really sensed among the wine-like characteristics of the beer no doubt due to the barrel-aging. The bitterness of the hops comes through more as the beer warms.

M- Slick and moist with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Unlike anything I've ever had before. They somehow created the perfect balance of Brett, hops, fruit and wine barrel. I never got any peppercorn out of it but I'm sure it contributed in some way I just didn't detect. A stellar saison that I will jump at the chance to purchase again.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an oversize wine glass. Acquired as an extra from Surge1311 thanks man!

A- Pours a hazy dull golden orange body with a gushing white 4 finger head that rises quickly but reduces quickly too. Leaves some chunky lacing.

S- The aroma of this beer makes me smile. Just like any world class brett beer, I get some incredible funky, leathery, woody aromas which combine with tart white grapes, fresh oranges, citrus peel, and some sweet malt in the background.

T- Upon the first sip I get the tradition saison notes - light fruity banana and clove. The brett funk shows itself on the follow through which pairs well with the woody grape notes of the pinot noir barrel. There is definitely a hop presence here that I wish wasn't so dominant - an astringent aftertaste that overtakes some of the nice barrel and brett notes. Would be better without the citra hops.

M- Medium body, medium carbonation. Prefer wilds lighter.

A wonderfully crafted beer. Hoppy Saison? Wild Ale? Not sure what I would characterize this as, but it's delicious. If the aroma matched the flavor it would be among my top beers, but very good nonetheless.

Batch 1, bottled August 2011. Big thanks to match1112 for the bottle. I regret passing this up when it was on shelves here, and I was thrilled to get a bottle in a BIF. Tasted 12 April 2013.

Pours a cloudy medium orange. Huge billowing fluffy dense white head, that slowly relaxes, leaving gobs of foam and lacing all over the glass, and ends as a thick cap. Wow.

Smell is fantastic. Funky, with a delicate grape aroma, and floral notes spread throughout. This right here is why I love brett-fermented saisons. The gentle funk plays perfectly on the structure of the rest of the beer. I keep going back for more, and I just want to drink it in.

Taste is probably the low point. It's actually pretty good, but it's the sidekick to the amazing smell. Moderately funky, fruity, slightly sweet before turning tart. An amalgam of flavors, all quite nice. Relaxes into a soft bitterness before fading out.

Feel is stellar. Medium-bodied, but with loads of small-bubble fluffy carbonation, mouth-filling and vibrant, spreading the flavors around and making them dance.

This is up there with Boulevard's Saison Brett among my top saisons ever. I'm blown away, and I really hope they make this again. If only the taste had a little more to it...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

It's an attractive shade of pale orange, but nothing earth shattering. The head is white, but fleeting. There's a bit of lace, but again, nothing to write home about.

This thing pops in the nose. Candied sugar, Brett yeast and bitter orange peel dominate. All three flavors are distinct, but overpowered by the orange peel.

Wow, extreme bitterness from the orange peel just overwhelms everything else. The candied sugar shows up first, but is put to shame by a piney IPA taste. As the beer works it's way back, the orange peel destroys any remaining taste buds. I was feeling a bit sleepy, but this literally opened my eyes with the punch it provides.

I expected a nice, soft saison with a bit of sweetness and some tangy tartness for balance. Not in this beer. It's sweet for a split second, then tangy for another split second, then nothing but tart bitterness. My throut literally hurts after a handful of sips. This is a serious wake up call.

I have a bomber of this and I have no idea how I'm going to finish. It's completely obnoxious. I'm hoping the relatively high ABV will dull my senses soon.

Batch 2, August 2012.

Beer is a caramel-orange colour, with a moderate to large-sized white head. Slightly cloudy. Head fades fairly quickly, leaving a film. A fair amount of lace.

Wow, the smell is enormous and captivating. Huge vinous nose, very fruity, blackberry, cherry, mango and apricot, all melded together with a liberal dose of funky brett notes. Some oak. The wine barrel influence is dramatic and nice. Really a stand-out aroma.

Taste also contains big vinous fruit notes. Blackberry, cherry, red grape, mango, passionfruit and orange. Brett is fairly prominent, and the flavour is quite funky and dry. Not really sour in any meaningful way, just funky. Oak is pretty strong in the aftertaste. Black pepper is there as well.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Smooth. Juicy.

Overall, terrific. Rich and enveloping and unique. A very tasty beer.

750mL into tulip. Batch #2 / August 2012.

A: slightly copper in hue. definitely darker than your typical saison, which I would imagine is due to the barrel aging. a bit cloudy, especially after the first pour. head is bright white and fluffy. retention is average. lacing is delicate and persistent.

S: the first thing to jump out at me are the hops. very powerful, citrus and rather inviting. plays nicely with subtle woody undertones and an equally subtle barnyard aroma. very unique aroma, however not getting anything that is particular saison-like.

T: here is where the barnyard brett distinctiveness really makes its presence known. the funk isn't quite acidic, just dries out the body enough to make this highly drinkable and refreshing. the floral nature of the rose hips and the citra hops add complexity to the body. similar to the nose, a lot going on, but still good flavor.

M: this is my main complaint, carb is a bit too low, even with the bottle conditioning. medium on the verge of full body.

D: read the comments above, certainly different than your typical saison, but the complexities make for a very unique brew. certainly a costly bottle of beer, but it was fun drinking it.

Bottle into Hill Farmstead Tulip-

Appearance- Hazy orange with a soapy white head that sticks around for a while. Nice lacing

Smell- Dry hopping from the barrel definitely comes through. Funky citrus and a mild vinous note.

Taste- Big grapefruit and citrus, which fade into a peppery funk. Finishes slightly bitter and dry.

Mouthfeel- Light and refreshing, with a mild tartness.

Overall- Perfect beer for one of the first warm spring nights. Definitely look forward to trying more of Anchorage's beers, they nailed this one.

A 22 oz bottle.

Pours a dark gold with off white head and lacing.

Nose is a little funky. At first it was a little pond water but it cleared up.

Taste is pretty tart. When I first sipped this I thought it might be a sour beer in disguise but it kind of mellowed out after a few sips. Plenty of fruit tartness and good hop finish. I am not a wine drinker but this definitely has a little grape thrown in.

Strong carbonation.

Overall, this is a very satisfying beer. It seems to get better as I drink it.

Batch #2, August 2012

Apricot ale with a sheet of loose knit light foam. Smells of elderflower initially, pepper, lemon, seltzer, some grain and some clay; just a touch of musty trub. Lightly tart, quite bitter, medicinal, some bitter orange peel, a little bit of tart and the aftertaste is really grassy and filthy to me. Medium bodied on full with low carb and dry finish. A little too bitter and overly mutilated by the Brett for me. Nose is really satisfying, but the flavor doesn't do it for me.

Bottle: Poured a bright golden color ale with a large white foamy head with great retention and some lacing. Aroma of Brett is dominant with some notes of rustic malt and some citrus notes and some vinous notes as well. Taste is a complex mix between some Brett notes with a dry aftertaste mix in with citrusy hoppy notes and some vinous notes which work very well altogether. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Again lots of flavour that are very well balanced. My only complaint and it is a minor one ifs with the amount of Brett used in every of their beers they tend to have a similar taste profile.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured out of a 750 mL bottle into a brandy-style snifter glass.

Appearance - a hazy-golden color with a tinge of pinkish-orange hue. Fairly subtle head--not much buildup followed by quick dissipation to a thin line of head. Lacing is pronounced, but not sticky and doesn't linger

Smell - Overtones of floral, tart, hint of sweet. Definitive yeasty backbone throughout. Elements of wet straw funk as well.

Taste - Outstanding balance of tart and funk. Hints of fresh red plum, some citrus zest and barnyard is very subdued but noticeable. Sour hints are present, but not full-on mouth puckering by any means. Some spicy notes as well.

Mouthfeel - Delicate but bright on the palate with pleasant carbonation. Allows for the presence of multiple complex flavors to exist together without being overpowered by each other.

Overall an excellent take on saison. While not really a sour beer, the Brett gives it some of those distinct sour characteristics without overwhelming the palate. I might recommend this as a way for those who don't "get" sours to try so they can taste and understand some the components of that type of beer. But ultimately, this is a saison, and a delicious one.

Thanks to jtd1969 for sharing this bottle

A - bright orange with a soft, bubbly head that fades to a thin lacing

S - herbal, spicy, floral nose; surprisingly hoppy

T - oak, winey, a bit tart, orange peel, a mild pepperiness, floral, mild bitterness, buttery, alcohol

M - medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated

This was amazing! It was complex and absolutely delicious. Rarely can I say this, but it was as if each sip had a new flavor. There were so many subtleties and nuances that I couldn't even wrap my palate around all of them. On top of all that, it was refreshing and very easy to drink. I can't say enough good things about this beer. It's definitely worth a try.
