FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is nicely vinous with a slight sharpness from the grapes, a touch spicy, herbal and sweet, nice funkiness and a woody barrel note. Flavor starts sweet and sour with notes of the sweet grapeiness blending with the sour funky tart note. Woody and vanilla further in. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Very good beer.

Bottle, shared by me... in my dining room... just now.
On all accounts this is an old bottle. I had to dig through Facebook to see the picture of the bottle lineup from when I first got this. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to open it, but the picture was from April of 2013, which puts this at three years old... maybe a touch younger.
I’ve had the beer since then, and it’s a beer I like, but this rating is going off this dust bottle from my basement.

Pours a bright orange with a huge head and nice lacing on the glass.

Goodness this smells good, lime zest, dusty attic & wet limestone basement... very nicely funky and earthy with some barnyard stuff... but impossibly bright for the age.

The flavor is dry and tart... it’s got a really nice depth of rich wine like oak and fruit character. There is some lemon zest, there is some light citrus peel bitterness... there is a little bit of apple... zippy and bright, wow.

The palate is remarkably lively & sharp.

I’ve seen so many Brett Saisons and/or Orval-ish beers age so poorly that I didn’t have a huge expectation here, but this is lovely.

markwise (5010) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle courtesy of SHIG. Cheers, Shawn! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is Brett- funk, earth, sweet malt, vinous oak, yeast, and spice. Flavor is similar with Brett, funk, earth, yeast, oak, vinous character, and spice (chamomile esque?). Medium to full in body and very memorable for a saison.

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Bottle pour at Noc noc. Translucent golden / straw coloured pour with a lasting frothy white head. Aroma is lovely blend of saison yeast, bretty funk, and some peach Melba and mandarin fruits. Flavour is composed of light grains, little wheat, straw, bretty funk, peach and mango, tangy orange in the finish. Palate is light fluffy and frothy, semi drying in the finish. Very good.

JDBaker11058 (1695) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2015
appearance: hazy orange gold, with a creamy white head and decent lacing. aroma: citrus (orange, lemon peel), white pepper, sharp brett, light barnyard, and some jammy fruit notes. taste: light citrus (grapefruit), raspberry, white pepper, funk, yeasty spice, a sweetness that feels like rose hips, and a general vinous undertone. finish: the funk holds on a bit, with the sharp brett softened by the vinous sweet and sour notes; tail end is slightly astringent. notes: Really enjoyable. Alcohol well-hidden to the point of nonexistence. Another great brew by Anchorage. Split a 750, but it drinks so easy I could have had the whole thing by myself in about 20 minutes. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.

Bottle. The look is super hazy orange juice, off white head, and orange apricot color. The smell is tart, fruit, pickle, Brett, fresh, nice, fresh juice, and good. The taste is juicy, tart, fresh, Brett, bitter, good stuff.

RickTheRick (780) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
** Batch #4 - Mai 2015 ** Une bière embrouillée et orangée aux subtils reflets rosés est surmontée d’une généreuse mousse blanche. Le bouquet vivifiant de complexité est à la fois fruité, floral, funky, vineux et boisé, chaque élément étant détecté à différents moments au fil que la bière tempère. Un aspecté épicé se précise en bouche et s’ajoute à toutes les flaveurs susmentionnées, le tout dans un corps moelleux. Quelle bière grandiose de la part d’Anchorage, une de mes brasseries américaines favorites.
