CampesinoTino (771) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Corked & Caged 750 ml Bottle. Pours a hazy burnt golden orange color with significant layer of foam and bubbles. Aroma is sharp and citrusy with a good dose of Brett, wine barrel, orange peel, rose hips and resiny hops around the edges. The taste opens up with a blend of ruby red grapefruit, lemon rind and pineapple before the sour, funky Brett flavors takes over for a bit. After that there’s some pepper, apricot, white grape and oak rounding things out. Mouthfeel is bone dry with strong carbonation and a tart, acidic finish. Overall, a unique take on the Saison style that tastes very much like the brewery’s other offerings.

Cloudy yellow orange pour from 22oz bottle at home. Orange grapefruit bubblegum and candy aroma. Super sweet taste. Tart lemon vanilla cherry and apricot flavor. Complex and delicious. Gave some to non-craft liking friends and they loved it too

hopwine (357) - Bend, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Floral, tropical, barnyard nose. Flavor is same plus some mandarin orange, nectarine, pineapple, minerality, tart cherry, pepper. Mild to moderate tannins. This is on another level.

tectactoe (2042) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Extremely hazed, burnt orange & amber body with a soapy, dark eggshell head on top. Aroma of flower petals, juicy orange & citrus, mild pineapple, some musty Brett notes, hints of tropical fruit even, light wood, with the slightest touch of vinousness towards the back-end. Red grape & red wine are more present on the palate, right out of the gate. More of that citric, sharp, & lightly tropical Brett fruitiness peaks through around mid-palate with lots of drying oak, floral notes, musty cotton blanket funk, & white peppery saison yeast leading into a dry, spicy oak finish. The prominence of the brettanomyces grows with time. Funkier, spicier towards the end of the glass. Nice.

Duchammer (60) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - OCT 8, 2014
One of my favorites! Poured cloudy orange yellow with a lingering white head. Brett overpowers the nose. Very crisp beer with spicy undertones and funkiness from the Brett an omy es finishing a little bitter.

Bule (788) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2014
750ml bottle pours an orangey color with a lot of frothy head. Mild sourness and wild yeast flavor. The wine barrel adds some additional complexity.

jonnyguns (1002) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from City Beer San Fran. Pours hazy golden with firm white head. Aroma is floral, grassy, some citrus and a definite vinous tone. Taste shows citrus, yeast, floral and some grassy notes. Lovely complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy floral notes, light grass, citrus, and a touch of vinous notes. It pours a hazy burnt orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus with a touch of Belgian yeast. The finish has moderate floral notes, orange peel, grass, and lemon peel. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

"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 (351) - 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.
