COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pride is the excessive belief in one’s own abilities and achievements. PRIDE Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale is the smart, sexy, strong ’golden child’ of the series. Aged in chardonnay oak barrels and infused with Brettanomyces, Pride has much, much, too much to boast about. PRIDE...It really isn’t you...it’s ME.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2015

furthur (903) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle, 2015 release. Cloudy orange beer, cream colored head faded. Aroma is malt, broiled pineapple. Taste is cloves, orange peal, black pepper, oak tannins. Finish is hoppy astringency almost like an IPA. It’s an interesting flavor trip from malt through cloves to hops with a touch of Brett. Palate is light but not thin, carbonation moderate, fine bubbles. Maybe more time in the cellar would increase the complexity.

22 oz bottle at a local gathering from backlog notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had some base bready malts, oak, chardonnay character, Brett funk, farmhouse, dry, some fruitiness comes through, interesting beer.

douglas88 (8399) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to the true Alaskan action hero Jeff. Pours a cloudy copper color with a medium white head. A funky nose, yeast and light fruit. The flavor is quite nice: light oxidation, funky brett is dominant, medium malt background, Belgian yeast, some deep dry funkiness. Quite good. Has held up well.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Rated on 9-25-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer is courtesy of jsquire. This beer pours an extremely fizzy white head with a short retention, hazy golden body, one ring of lacing, and visible carbonation. The Aroma is brett, floral hops, fruity, and a hint of spice. The Taste is brett, hoppy and fruity. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. All-in-all, this beer is quaffable and worth trying.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2011
[Tap] Tasting notes from mid-September at Humpy’s in Anchorage. Pours a bright yellow color with a distinct haze to it. Large and lasting white foam head. Funky nose of straw, lemon grass, barnyard and white wine. Dry and winey character throughout. Astringent grains, rose water, Brett, light fruits and grass make an appearance. Not really what I expected, but not too bad. It kind of grew on me actually.
