Brett bomb with a good saison behind it. Good spices, fruity. Somewhat sweet in the finish. Only a little yeasty.Very generous head of foam. Very drinkable.Above average mouthfeel. A little funky aroma. Bottle from Bierkraft $21.46.Cork popped into the other side of a large room, suggesting above average carbonation.

Although I thought this was overpriced I bought it for the novelty of having a beer from Alaska. It turned out it was almost worth the cost.

Poured a 2 1/2" off-white head with a lasting merengue. Hazy raw sienna yellow colored body. Smells a little like pickle juice at first but there some malt too. Taste happily was only a touch sour and has more malt than the smell hinted as well as raisin from the grape brewing and some mild but quality hops. Finish is pretty long and yes bretty.

Rich bretty saison full of vinous notes.

Presentation: 750 ml brown, caged and corked bottle. Screen printed label with the image of a fleshy rose with the details of the brew and face of the brewer. Side paragraph offers a description of the brew, and serving indications, back narrative exposed intent, and background. Notes 40 IBUS, bottling Batch #1 August 2011, and 8% Alc. by Vol. Served in a tulip glass.

A -Hazy deep gold pour, towering frothy head, nice retention, good surface memory and lacing.

S - Rich nose with plenty of funky brett, yeasty earthy notes, peppery… Vinous hint.

T - The flavor starts to reveal all the complex structure… Starts rather compact but as it lingers after the distinct funky and earthy touch there is a complex floral hint with an oaked vinous vanilla touch under the breathy barnyard.

M - Medium body and moderate carbonation, with a long dry and funky finish.

O - Very nice quaff, complex and rather memorable.

Notes: Again, a bit pricey but for what it is, but for what it does, this feels worth it. Nice quality and complexity. Glad to see these brews around.

Picked this one up at Bier:Thirty over the weekend... Poured into my Cigar City snifter... great head and lacing... the brew is hazed orange.

Nose is definitely "American" saison.. fruity and slightly phenolic.. and bits of brett.. some white peppercorns and clove... lesser apricot and white peach and maybe even some red plum.

Flavor is big and fruity... pear and lesser peach... plum and some white grape. drying woodiness mid palate.. light brett funk.. brett funk dries it out up front and only shows again on the finish.. vinous and inviting.. dry and some how still very fruity... sorta tannic with warmth.. spiciness blooms with warmth.. cardamom and light clove.. citrus hops play long with the yeasty notes on the finish... dry and fruity.

Medium body... nice carbonation.. nicely done for sure.

3.5/4/4/4/4 .. but I should probably mark down the aroma and flavor... This is not a "real" saison by any stretch. Okay for American.... but still just a nice play from an emerging brewery.

Poured from a bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip

A: Hazy & opaque orange/amber body under 3/4" of off-white head. Almost no lacing.

S: Bready, bretty (see what I did there?), yeasty, fruity, oak, mild spice...smells wonderful

T: Oak, brett, white wine, citrus fruits. Pretty dry, but not overly so.

M: Very easy drinker here. Not very viscous, light to medium bodied with very fine carbonation.

O: Hands down one of my favorite saisons. While it's not like a Fantome, the sour elements play with the malts just right. Awesome.

Bought a 1 PT 9.4 FL OZ bottle of this from Hair of the Dog in St. Louis, MO for $15. Poured from the caged&corked Purple/Red bottle w/ a rose on the front into a 16oz Tulip Glass. Has BATCH #1, AUGUST/2011 on the back in red.

Aroma- Has an unusually strong strawberry candy aroma in here! Dominates the nose but still has a good citrus aroma finished by a bit of a sour note. Light-Medium hops are in the aroma as well.

Appearance- Pours a 3 finger head that lasts for good time and stays frothy. Has tons of ingredient in the cloud that is present and has a dark orange colored body. Leaves tons of lace afterwards.

Flavor- The flavor starts strongly with citrus but then has way too much hop! There is no sour tastes in here but there is a ton of malt that I noticed. Medium bitterness level which is a bit high as well. Not a problem, just a different kind of Saison.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Effervescent, and leaves tons of hop on the palate.

Overall Impression- You could definitely hint at the Pinot Noir barrels that were used in this process but only in the nose. Had a ton of hop character for a Saison. Would love to enjoy this one again! Very interesting.

Poured into a tulip.

Dark golden, bordering on amber, hue. Three fingers of rocky white head. Retention and lacing are awesome.

Smells or brett, oysters, dry bread like flavors, yeast. Some light spices. Rose petals (just a touch anyway).

Biscuity malt that comes and goes quite quickly, some bitter orange rind, touch of rose petal, peppercorn doesn't present itself much, funky brett, nice tannin presence. Super yeasty and funky as well. Nice clean bitterness on the finish.

Full bodied, well carbonated, smooth, but with a solid carbonic bite on the finish.

Bitter Monk is still my favorite Anchorage Brewing beer, but so far they can do no wrong in my eyes. Buy this, seek it out even. This is the real deal.

Thanks to Jay for sharing this one; poured from a bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip.

A: Hazy orange body under a thin, frothy cap of tan foam. Mediocre retention, spotty lace. Decent.

S: Wow. Craziness. Soft, rich, and hugely complex: floral, herbal, fruity, oaky, sweet. Terrific.

T: Floral Brett, dry oak, red wine, orange peel, and just a bit of plastic. A minor flaw. Bone dry, Bretty finish. Very tasty indeed.

M: Eminently slick, soft, and delicate. Ultrafine carbonation. Supple.

O: Terrific beer. No one element ever threatened to dominate, and the result was a dizzying medley of complexity. Pleasant all around.

Cheers!

From 10/28/11 notes. Thanks to jslot38 for sharing this one.

a - Pours a dark hazy yellow color with some light lacing, two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spices, citrus hops, yeast, brett, some funk, apples, and floral hops. Very nice and loving the brett that comes through.

t - Tastes of brett, citrus hops, floral notes and hops, earthy notes, yeast, pepper, and spices. More floral notes that the nose and again, very nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a really nice saison from Anchorage; I really liked it. Some nice funk and brett especially in the nose, and floral hops in the taste. Would like to have it again.

Batch #1 August, 2011.

Poured into a tulip, hazy orange with a large pillow of white head, big bubbles, about 4 fingers, fades very slowly (though a small head remains) with nice soapy lacing.

Smell is very funky and sour, like a good cheese. Spices and sweet orange that combine to smell like Christmas, like that potpourri your Mom puts out. I feel like I might be imagining some oak quality, if it's there it is faint.

Probably one of the more sour tasting saisons that I've had, which I like. Funk and orange citrus dominate the palate, peppery spice balances, a touch of sweet and lightly hopped.

Medium mouthfeel, but perhaps a touch too watery and flat, smooth and drinkable, alcohol is present.

Pretty decent overall.

Batch 1, August 2011.

Pours a completely opaque, dark golden orange color with a frothy, pillowy 2.5 finger white head that has very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap. Streaks and splotches of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy, slightly funky aroma with lots of barn/farmhouse character along with some prominent brett and zesty spice. There's also some sweet fruit notes but the barrel presence is subtle. Musty bretty funk compliments the saison yeast nicely. Hints of eatery fruits and bready yeast along with some pepper and coriander. I'm picking up a vinous presence that compliments the eatery fruit presence. Subtle earthy oak with hints of cherry, strawberries, grape and other dark fruit. Very complex nose but could use a bit more barrel in the nose.

Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a slight creamy texture that is countered by the funky/sour character. Lots of musty funk/dry brett flavor that melds with the saison/farmhouse yeast pretty well. Slightly puckering but more dry and funky than tart. Much more so than I expected resulting in a dryness that is exaggerated by the berrel notes. Dry toasted oak with a faint vinous red wine character that gives off hints of grape, strawberry and other dark fruits. Pretty complex but the funk/brett donates slightly overpowering the eatery fruit notes and Pinot noir elements. Pretty good with a well masked ABV but could use bit more balance. I'm glad I got to try this one and am looking forward to sampling more from this brewery.

batch 1 8/11 purchased at the Bruery Provisions. Really happy to see more Anchorage brewing around! Always happy to give more Alaskan beers a swirl.

A: Faint amber honey body with cobweb lacing grabbing the glass. Lots of reds, oranges, and golden yellows flash in the glass. There's definitely a likeness to fish scales, makes me think of a lumbering fat fish like a carp. If you like amber earth tones, then this is a looker for you.

S: Bright edible flowers that go heavily into a sugar plum note that makes me excited. Late earthy presence of a barnyard brett that fuses with sweet florals. There's an almost berry like brightness to the smells of plant bulbs. It comes off very light, which makes me think there's either rose hips and or pedals in this beer.

T: Sweet rosewater and blueberry flavor crashes into a wall of bitter barnyard funk. A linger of peppery essence cackles like a low fire in the back of my tongue. This is really well layered with different flavors. Lots of complexity, but the brett is very young. The transition from the floral sweetness into the mild funk is a great one, and the really elegant presence of peppery essence.

M: Light medium feels with a favoritism towards the light side. The beer doesn't come off watery, and there's an almost plant oil like viscosity to the overall feel. It's somewhere between a light syrup and some sort of vegetal oil, but it only coats mildly. It's hard to even notice the glazing unless you really think about it, the beer comes off very elegant due to this.

O: I think this is a really fantastic beer to be putting out as a batch 1 line from a new brewery. I understand that Gabe has been at it for a while (formerly @ midnight sun), however -- I think this will be a beer people will be looking for in a few years. I'd grab some batch 1 of this bad boy and revisit it at some tastings. I most certainly will grab a couple bottles, I think this one will blossom with an elegant floral sweetness like I've never had in a beer. This is like Saison Brett with plums/hibiscus. Really very good.

enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a nice orange hue that is gently hazy with two fingers of ample, pure white head that lingers beautifully and leaves a nice amount of lacing on the glass
S: definitely a bit of spice here like peppercorns but actually not too extreme, a nice sweetness and possibly a bit of grapefruit hop aroma
T: begins with a bit of sweetness and hops then moves purposefully over to the spiciness, leaves a lingering taste of spices on the palate
M: medium carbonation tingle then leaves a bit of a dry bit somewhat bitter taste on the palate
O: a nice brew, interesting because it is sweetened up in the beginning and not extreme on the spices but overall nice, still think henepin beats this one out

A light orange marmalade cropped with a white, creamy top, it looks damn delicious! Bubbles fizz up from the bottom of my Allagash signature as if it were Dom in a champagne flute.

I smell some bretty spice--maybe cloves, orange zest, and chrysanthemum. There's a bready, malt-like floral aroma to this unique saison. The nose ain't nearly as cool as the look, but it remains appealing....

Zingy carbonation tingles my cheeks as wild brett yeast plays like artisinal bread on my palate. I really struggle to get that Pinot noir influence, and that's a disappointment. There's some zestiness that's either fruit or Brett...or both. The more I sip, the more I conclude it's a Red & White wannabe. It's fizzier like a saison should be, but there's nowhere near the tasty spice of say a Saison du Buff. It feels better than it tastes, but both would benefit from a touch more spice and wine (or spicy wine).

Overall, it's an expensive ass beer--some $18.99 for the big corked/caged 750. It's cool, and I'm grateful it made it here from Alaska--picked it up from Tylers in Carboro--and I think I'd try it again...but I dont think I'd buy it again.

A-

750ml into a tulip. Pours a fully hazed amber orange, towering yellowish off white head recedes slow, froth clumps on the uneven surface as a rough landscape from a great height, excellent lacing.

Wonderful aroma with hop floral and citrus fully rivaling the brett for attention. Superb depth, refreshing.

The hops and brett again tangle in the taste with the hops getting the upper hand. More earth than funk. The dry aftertaste begins peppery then trails off with the flavor of brett and the bittering of the hops, nicely melded. Hops are on the high side for a saison. Thin to medium bodied lively mouthfeel.

Batch 1 08/11

Poured from a 750 ml bottle with an etched on label into a tulip glass.

Medium to aggressive pour yields about a 50/50 beer to head ratio. The beer is a hazy burnt orange with bright orange highlights, while the head is shock white and slowly dissapating. Lots of patchy lacing as it dissapates. Some very spicy clove and banana notes float up on the nose, reminding one of a garden. The brett yeast is easily detectable and Belgian in nature. Peppercorns provide the spicy part of the nose, while the rose and orange peels provide the sweet and flowery aromas. Very balanced in smell, enticing.

Sweet but white wine-like up front, a hint of vanilla from the french oak. Vanilla is heavy in the lingering aftertaste, very sweet. But before that is a medley of tastes and spices, including more silky smooth vanilla. The peppercorn provides a spicy element that prickles briefly, then is gone. The flowery taste from the rose gives a silky mouthfeel as well, making for an interesting smoothness. Bitterness and dryness of orange rind is present as well, contributing to balance. Notes of clove float through, a result of the brettanomyces yeast strain, adding to the spicy feel. Finally, a short-lived blast of citrusy hops finishes this one off, leaving nothing behind but a sizable linger of vanilla and banana, a somewhat weird combination that almost becomes overwhelming.

This is a really interesting and unique beer for sure. Glad to try it after really enjoying their Belgian IPA. Can't say that I loved this one, but I didn't hate it either. There should be no doubt, it is a quality beer, and about as complex as it gets, but some of the flavors don't seem to work to me. Worth the 15 or so dollars though as there is a lot to enjoy in here.

Purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse, $13. 750mL brown glass cork and caged bottle. Batch #1, Aug 2011.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with 1.5 inches of white fluffy head. Nose is full of bretty funk. Sour lemon rind and woody cut-board, sawdust funk. Palate is dominated by brett. Lemon rind, cut boards, saw dust, lime zest and earth funk. A little touch of malt comes through. I don't get any rose hips, no citra hops, maybe a suggestion of orange peel and as it warms I get a little red wine influence.

Notes: Well, just like the Bitter Monk, this beer just tastes like brett. Sure it's not as bitter, not as citrus-y as Bitter Monk. But it just tastes like brett. The beer is gone. The label sounds like a great beer, but I don't see much of it in the beer.

pours a glowing, hazy, pink-orange with a just off-white head that holds and leaves pretty lace. nose is citrusy hops, flowers, strawberries, grape must, lemon, lemon pepper and earth. not getting much wood, but like all of anchorage's other beers so far, everything is seeming very well integrated. taste is a mellow, balanced, harmonic expression of all of the above. big and bold, while remaining smooth and subtle. the rose hip/pepper spicing never gets bitter or weird, and the yeast's character matches well with everything else that is going on. very well integrated. medium body. fairly dry and quite round from all the fruitiness. just a touch of bretty funk in the middle and finish. another fantastic beer from anchorage.

Not too long ago, I fell in love with Saison-Brett. While in my local beer store, I see this new arrival. Saison brewed with Brett, aged in French Oak. Yes please!

Pours a very hazy orange color, with a pinkish hue. Bright white head, 2 fingers, with lots of lace.

Light fruity yeast aroma, plenty of funk, a slight breadiness, and some crisp woody notes. Nice spiciness, and a great floral, herbal nose.

Taste is fruity and hugely funky. Lightly floral, with a nice bit of wood and faint wine. Finishes with a brett twang and a big herbal, spicy note.

Medium bodied and fairly creamy. A more effervescent feel would be wonderful. Still nice though.

Very pleased with this. I don't have access to Boulevard, but I'm going to enjoy having easy access to this!

Snifter.

A: Hazy orange with a big white head and lots of web-like lacing.

S: Strong floral notes with peppery phenols. Wet leather blends with earth and oak. I detect grape and apple.

T: Peppery spiciness up front with pronounced floral notes and a little band aid. Oak is evident and there are notes of apple and pear, grape and plum. There's a good deal of leather and earth with a touch of tartness.

M: Medium body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice stuff. Very enjoyable and the price can be stomached if the burden is shared.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

A - Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with some nice depth to it. Almost a burnt orange. There is a nice half inch head with medium sized bubbles and some smaller dense bubbles. It recedes slowly down to a mat.

S - Aroma is delicious. Flowery and earthy. Slight grain notes are present but more of nice fresh grassy hop nose is prevalent. There is some nice fruity aromas in there as well as some slight corn husk and some nice brett character.

T & M - Starts off with some nice grain bready notes followed by some nice flowery notes. Wow. This is very delicious. There is some nice apple notes as well as some slight vinous notes. A bit of woody aftertaste lingers after a sip. This brew is delicious. There is some nice funkiness to it and has a very dry and refreshing feeling. There is some nice hop bitterness throughout the middle and back end of the beer that gives it great balance. Some peppery spice notes are also present. This was very close to a 5 for me on taste.

O - This beer is great. I've been impressed with the 2 brews I've had from Anchorage so far. Very good body and nice individual flavors that work well together.

Poured into a tulip

A: Hazy golden orange with a great looking frothy head. The head retention and lacing are superb with peaks and clouds chunking on the sides of the glass and on top of the brew.

S: Zesty notes of citrus and brett greet the first whiff. The oak is lurking in the background along with some vinous red grapes. The brett becomes more pronounced as it warms with a healthy dose of leather and hay surfacing.

T: The citrus notes are very pronounced (hop forward) with an immense influence from brett to fill out the funk. Mid-palate it gets a bit jammy/oaked with the pinot barrels flexing their muscles. It concludes a touch on the bitter side with a hint of the booze coming out in the dry finish.

M: Light and bubbly.

O: Another great offering form Anchorage brewing. A bit outside the box but very well done.

Pours a golden light brown color, a bit hazy, with a huge meriangue off white head that slowly settles into a chunky ass cap with nice sticky lacing on the glass.

The aroma is of funky brett and drying oak. Green apple skins, white grapes and lemon bring the tart as well as the woody oak. Some vanilla in the nose. Some spicy phenols from the yeast.

The taste is not as tart as the nose. The malt brings a light breadiness and some light caramel. The oak comes through next and brings some vanilla flavor. Some light green apple and lemon tartness as well as an orangy citrus. There is also a subtle white grape flavor. The beer ends with a noticable bitterness from the hops or perhaps the rose hips. It is a bit chalky and asprin like. Probably would have preferred more of a grassy noble hop flavor.

Moderate feel with fizzy carbonation. Drinks fairly light but is weighed down by the hoppy bitter finish. Good balance on the palate.

A very flavorful saison with good complexity.

Caramel body, white head reduced to a filmy cover on the beer.

Bretty lemony pineapple aroma. Estery saison yeast.

Goat cheese and saison combine in the flavor. Noticeable bitterness from the hops. Lemony cheesy bitter finish. Caramel backbone and slightly vinous.
