Bottle at Elijah Ps that was supposed to be on draft and priced that way. I couldnt finish the bottle and offered it to the staff. Clearish gold with a big fluffy white head. Bretty aroma. Brett plus dough, pepper, and fruit are tasted. It is sweeter and interesting stuff. Brett and dough lead.

A really good, really citrusy, somewhat funky saison. Crisp with a biting hop aftertaste. Picked up from Beertopia in 2016.

Hay gold. Awesome nose of brett, citrus, and grapfruit. Sour funky brett with crisp bright grapefruit and lemon citrus. Light leather and more grapefruit rind bitterness in the finish.

Bottle sample at SBWF. Aroma and taste is full of ammoniac. Way too rough for my taste.

Sample @ SBWF. The usual Anchorage stuff going on here... Dry and hoppy with notes of lime and berry seeds.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Straw, cloudy, orange hued, thin frothy white head, little lacing.   Slight funk, barnish, a little sweet citrus.   Similar on the tongue, a bit chardonay like.   Bright, funky, with a bit of a citrusy punch.   Little bit of grapefruit peel on the backside.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   I liked this one a bit more than the Jolly Pumpkin brewed example.   A little more refined.   Zesty finish, white wine, grapefruit peel, orange zest, with some funky barnish notes.   Fairly nice.

RhetoricalAns (878) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Hazed, dull straw pour. medium white head, good retention. Aroma of funky grapefruit, bit of barnyard / earth. Taste is fairly tart, mostly grapefruit with some woodiness.

Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dirty amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit notes with light rustic cereal notes is quiet nice. Taste is dominated by more grapefruit notes then I was expecting with some rustic cereal notes and light herbal notes. Peppercorn were not that identifiable. Body was full with good carbonation. Super enjoyable saison with nice refreshing notes of grapefruit.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Where: The Partisan, Washington DC. How: 20 ounce draft pour. Appearance: very pale hay color with a nice white head and tons of lacing; hazy. Aroma: pithy from the grapefruit, Brett barnyard funk, citrus, lemon, oranges, tropical, kinda dirty. Taste: highly carbonated, grapefruit, Brett funk, citrus, spicy middle of the mouth, bitter and tannic finish. Palate: Mouth feel is medium, carbonation is also medium. Crisp and refreshing. Overall: An excellent funky saison that will bring a smile to your face.
