4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle that I shared with my friend, Keelan. These Anchorage beers aren’t cheap but if the rest are like this one, I am up for moer. Orange-yellow color, small but visible head and a bit of lace. The nose is really incredible in how intriguing it is. I knew right away I liked it but I just have to keep inhaling away to try and figure out what I smell. This beer sets the standard for complex aromas. Its sort of perfume, candy, a touch of brett hiding in the back, slightly earthy, slight touch of alcohol. After reading the bottle it came to me. It’s the rose hips. The taste is pretty damn crazy too, funky with sweet, sour, and bitter all in equal portions. Unique. Surprisingly pleasant. This one is fit for a very special occasion.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle. Fairly clear gold pour, couple fingers of fluffy white head, some lacing. Lots in the aroma, flowery / perfume, citrus, peppery spice, vinous notes as well. For me the taste was dominated by the rose hips / flowers, not my favorite. Some funk / tartness is present as well as a slew of others.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger and a half of white pillowy head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is red wine grapes with some floral notes and hints of yeast and citrus. Taste is a lemony tartness with a citrus and caramel malty sweetness and a dry red wine finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a flavorful brew that suits the style well and adds a twist with the addition of the rose hips.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright orange hazy color with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is huge, great vinous nose, with grapes and fruitiness, a bit sour, and grassy yeast. Strong grapey flavor with deep oak notes. Sweet and tart, and almost bit creamy at the end. Not as yeasty of a flavor as I was expecting but very good overall.

Bottle from Beer Store. Thin-medium bodied saison. Funk, white wine, wheat, floral, spice and citrus notes. Great balance. You would hardly know the alcohol content of this by drinking though the white wine is hinting. Love the flavors. Funky up citrus with floral/spice never tasted so good.
