3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle
If I ever make it to Alaska Anchorage Brewing Company remains at the top of places to visit. A beer with legs, this release mixes a bit of Jolly Pumpkin funk with some snowy attitude. It will be fun to try the Jolly Pumpkin next.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden honey body filters minimal amounts of light. A vanilla head melts away like scoops of ice cream into a float. Grapefruit, lemons, and a clean bright earthiness float upwards with a delicate ease.
Flavor / Palate - The strong bite of fresh squeezed grapefruit nibbles at the corners of the palate. Pledge furniture polish offers an aspect not usually seen in a saison. If the release from Michigan is at all comparable then these guys should team up more often.

Une saison tout en élégance et en fraîcheur, avec une belle robe dorée, un nez sur le fruit et le houblon et une bouche droite et nette qui raffraîchit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased locally, although I can’t remember where. It pours a mostly clear bright gold with a centimeter or so of white head that settles unevenly and lasts all the way down. Really fruity and funky throughout, with a pretty mellow grapefruit character, pineapple, mango, melon, mild peppercorn spice, oak, sweet malts, faint vanilla, and some more tart lemon-lime initially that mellows out as it warms. Light-medium bodied, with a funky, fruity, tart mouthfeel. Anchorage does it again. Never disappoints.

New Year Bottle Share in Odense. Hazy green golden with a lasting white head. Spicy, funky aroma with leather, pineapple, and citrus. Very dry fruity and spicy flavour with funky character. These Alaskans know a thing or two about using brett

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottleshare @ Rekviums Pizza Palace, Odense C. My fifteen thousand party bash. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Good brett and funk. Best of both worls. Solid hops, crisp, fruity and dry with a touch of wood. Light, refreshing and yet very complex and quaffable. Lemon peel and yeasty pepperness.
