MetalNHopHead (1458) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2016
Hill Farmsteadís and Anchorageís 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. Itís all here. All of Brettís distinct calling cards come to the palate. Yet, itís done in such a way that you arenít 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.
