Been looking for this one for a while and finally got my hands on it. Nice oaky bretty aroma. The flavor is wildly complex. Light tartness with some sour fruit followed by the slightest note of barnyard. Vinious oak comes through with a dry finish. Great beer!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 Ml bottle corked and labeled as batch number 3. Pours a cloudy light orange color with sour grapes and maybe some peach aroma. Thicker body for my usual saisons, but this isn’t your typical saison. A lot of sour fruit, grape, and citrus with a wonderful collaboration of spices in the finish. I expected a lot out of this beer and waited a while to finally get it, and it completely exceeded my expectations. Incredible beer to say the least.

Bottle, slightly cloudy body the color of cider, nice white head fades to a ring. Aroma is dry cider, peach, cider vineager. Opening Taste is dry cider, sliding to pineapple, peach, and yes orange peal bitterness. Finish is dry, bitter, just a hint of pepper smoky earthiness, not spicy though. Palate is light and crisp, carbonation bright, but not exuberant.

750 ml corked and caged bottle.
Hazy, dirty orange, with a tight, off-white head and spotty lacing.
Aroma is big on the Brett, but there is oak, wine, cherries, funky, barnyard all swirling around inside.
Flavor is funky, tart, sweet, vinous, oak, light tannins. Definitely taste the Pinot Noir.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
Finish is long and has an oaky dryness. Tasty

Bottle. Dang! Another elegant, distinguished beer from Anchorage. I know better than to expect otherwise by now. Aroma sends up fruit, funk, wine barrel, more. Taste follows -- rich and sumptuous with all notes played loudly but in harmony. Citrus and peppercorns and wine and more. Mouthfeel is saison perfection, finish is dry and complex with more of the fruit and funk that opened the show.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tipples, corked and caged. Poured to my tulip hazy orange with lots of. Unless and a big creamy white to off white head. Huge Brett aroma, orange peels, lots of floral and peppery notes, barnyard funky and dry. Not a lot of wine on the nose. Flavor is sweet mango intermingled with rose hips, citrus, funk, and light peppery spice. Lightly tart from the Brett, full bodied with a vinous red wine heaviness, but strong carbonation. Wow. This might be the best Brett beer I've ever had. The big juiciness of the beer balances out the dry funky Brett outstandingly.

Has an really oaky noise and the oak and pinot really comed through in the taste. A bit to sweet but good.
