jcos (1704) - Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on January 25th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark orange.
Aroma: Aroma is wheaty, slightly funky.
Taste:Beer tastes more wheaty than typical saison, with some citrus and light spice. Funky stuff on the finish.
Palate:Nice light body, carbonated, quick aftertaste. Covers alcohol well.

Summary: First off, thanks to Ben for the trade. Cheers! This was an interesting beer to taste(as Anchorage beers usually are), and I’m really glad I got to sample.

Smell is just great, smells like lichie fruit, but much more going on. Smell of flowers, spring and wood. Taste is saison alike, dry and tart, but that is only the beginning! What a taste explosion this beer is, dry wine, wood, hop, but also brett influences, and much more, light soureness. The best saison beer there is in my opinion atm! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damn good stuff...really interesting contrast going on inside the palate because a saison is typically tart and dry and pinot noir is bigger and sweet. The beer manages to do both in each sip while being quite drinkable. I really was impressed with the craftsmanship and uniqueness of the beer. Also, simply, it was damn tasty.

RBAG 2012. Of all the beers at RBAG 2012 this might have been my personal favorite. Orange in colour with strong carbonation. BIg time bretty funk on the nose, along with notes of dried herbs, mellow red wine, and citrus peel. Very dry in the mouth with loads of brett, rose hip herbal tea, orange and tangerine peel, and red wine barrel. It almost smelt a little dirty in such a good way. The kind of good dirty like when you significant other talks about getting dirty. The taste was all kinds of excellent I can’t quite communicate properly. This has landed on my "buy all on sight" list.
