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.

Bottle. Cotteridge. Hazy, dark yellow. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, white head. Nose has soft brett. Old lemon. Vanilla malts. Light, strawberry hop. The fusty citrus smells great. Taste is mostly yeasty dry, with soft sweetness on the lips. Some leafy hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is perfect. Clean, and lively, with a yeasty foam. Finishes lemony, zesty, and with a yeasty chew. Great stuff.
