4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours bright orange with finger head. Aroma has so much brett up front, with a lovely pineapple, peach and soft funk nose. Taste isn’t as interesting as the aroma, but still has a lot to offer in terms of fruit and brett character. Lovely thick soft mouthfeel, So much going for this saison, really impressed by everything it has to offer, especially its drinkability

Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Batch no 4, Oct 2015. The aroma’s quite awesome, bubblegum and fruits, funky and citric... Tastes of tropical fruitiness (pineapple, papaya), and somewhat grainy, plus bretty dry and sour. Very nice and refreshing crispness. Among the best Saisons I’ve had. Would love to try it again one day.

Bottle drunk in the morning with Benh on his most recent visit to Prague. Refreshing and fruity with a typical Peppery saison deliciousness. By Christ it was delicious.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hill Farmstead’s and Anchorage’s brewers love their Brettanomyces and oak aging. Grassroots Arctic Saison seems like just the kind of thing they would make. This is a match made in funky paradise. Bread, spice, earth, fruit, wood. It’s all here. All of Brett’s distinct calling cards come to the palate. Yet, it’s done in such a way that you aren’t overwhelmed. Funk is dry, complex, and lightly sour. Still, the beer is drinkable and refreshing. This beer - made by friends - is best enjoyed with friends.
