TURDFERGUSON (3954) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 Pours deep orange with a big sudsy off white head. Lots of lace and great retention overall. Nose is tropical fruits, pepper, brett, citrus, cherry,rose petals. Flavor is bretty, rose, some tropical fruit and citrus bitterness in the finish with a bit of pepper and other spices. Quite impressive just like the ipa.

"next to Bitter Monk, comes in a little lacking. a little brett in the aroma and flavor. the rose, fruit and malt only comes through close to room temp. it ends up good, but a little confused...not nearly as funky as there other brews, but enough to make it not stand out as a saison either. that said, still enjoyable, but probably a one timer at the price. Originally scored a 3.5 8+ months ago...NEVER have I had a beer that has improved so much with age. Way more funky, more what I was hoping it would be right away as the only bottled Anchorage beer I’ve seen in Pinot barrels as opposed to Chardonnay. Fantastic. Would be in the lo 4’s now...average 3.8?"

toxichop (348) - South Gate, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
P: Deep amber with a head that does last very long. S: Starts of with a bit hops but gets dominated by roses, wine and a bit of brett. T: A bit of roses, wine, a bit of citrus. Medium body and medium carbonation. O: Great beer with lots of flavors that play well with each other.

I was a little let down by this one, to be honest, considering the hype. I think the alcohol is a bit too high, which compromises a bit of the freshness and brightness this could have. I prefered their Rondy Brew, since it was drier, and brighter, as saisons should be. It’s everything you would expect from Anchorage: lots of funk in the nose, moderate tartness, subtle malt base, prominent carbonation. This is an excellent beer. There’s just better ones out there.

nakedwhendrunk (2182) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - SEP 17, 2014
This bottle was dated "Batch 3, July 2014." This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a ruddy orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. Semi-thick but lightly coating the sides of the glass is an ample amount of lacing. The smell was quite floral with a bitter to sour lemon to orange aroma that was quite invasive. The taste was bitter, tart and sour and semi - dry and vinous all around. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. For a saison, the carbonation seemed appropriate for the style. Despite having a semi-floral aftertaste, the finish is so dry - wow, its dry. Overall, honestly, I really don’t see what’s so special about this beer. Its just another vinous sour saison. I probably wouldn’t get this again.

drainpour (10) - Santa Rosa, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Great beer, totally unique sour, lots of grape or vinous fruit character. Strong taste of rose hips, and a strong yet subtle Brett bite at the finish combined with some oak. Triple fermentation is evident in the layered smoothness.

Oakes (12633) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, La Bodega, Anchorage. Dull amber. Not much head, but also no cork pop, which is odd for a brett beer. The aroma has abundant fruity brett, and the rosehips and peppercorns seem to come out as well. Good complex aroma. The palate is bitter, with some yeastiness. Lots of rosehips and vinous fruits. Finishes dry, touch yeasty, a little bretty and with a fairly strong woody influence as well. A complex, artistic beer. I suspect this beer will evolve quite a bit in the first year of its life, so would make for a fun study.

djd07 (3633) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with small off white head. The aroma is yeast, tart fruit and funk aroma. Medium mouthfeel with nice funk, oak, tart finish, very good.

tmrmwel (960) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with a finger thick off white head. Aroma is tart and fruity yeast, with sour apples and hoppy apricots. Full creamy body with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is tart yeast and sour fruit with unripe apples and brett, as well as some sweet hops with apricots and honey. Finishes off with a nice long tartness.

TXBadger (1398) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Had a tasting: Pours a cloudy golden color with white head. Notes of oak, spice, and barnyard on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not bad, medium-bodied.
