anchorage has to have one of the best beer portfolios out there. they are all so clever and well made, and so unique too. love buzz is a real treat for me. the peppercorns are there in the nose, and blend in seamlessly with the spice of the saison yeast in the taste. the orange peel does the same thing with the citra hops, marrying equally and synergistic to the max, with the orange adding some bitter just like the hops do, and the hops adding the citrus thing to the nose. the yeast complexion is amazing, mouthwatering, its dry but wet too, its bretty and funky and odd, but still farmy and familiar, like a nap in a hay loft. hard to tell if its the red wine barrel or the rose hip giving it a perfume floral thing before the finish, but the cherry notes of the wine barrel bring it back to earth. oak and funk, fruity and dry, its as complex as any beer out there, and just as well made too. i love all of the anchorage beers, but this one may well be my favorite. what an extraordinary specimen.
