nealblind (2019) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Slightly cloudy pour big white head. Aroma of dusty bretta lemons. Tastes acidic vinous bretta spicy oak. Smooth and acidic palate. Not much complexity to the flavor, overrated, yet well executed, well refined and smooth.

750ml brown bottle, corked and caged. Batch #5, October 2016. Yellow with light haziness. A sturdy short sitting white head on top, soft glass coating sheets of lace left behind. Aroma - brett, lemon. Taste - brett funk and some citrus. Dry and leathery end with soft oak notes behind everything. Nice natural feel to the carbonation and a medium body. Comes together amazingly well. Rating #3900

Nice first beer from Grassroots, can definitely feel the Anchorage strain of Brett. A good sipper to last awhile.

cmacklin (1373) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2017
750ml caged and corked bottle. (Batch #5) Pours a cloudy gold-yellow with tiny yeast particles floating around and a large, foamy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Fruity aroma of tangerine, lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, wheat malt, Brett, yeast, oak and black pepper. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, orange peel, tangerine, lime, grapefruit, apple, pear, peach, pineapple, white wine, Brett, black pepper and grass with a dry, tart, slightly acidic finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. An excellent saison. Very refreshing and tasty.

thornecb (6152) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Pours slightly hazed gold into a shaker. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Lemon and Brett aromas. Sharp with lemon peel and sourdough upfront turning to tart Brett before the medium length earth finish.

4.5
dnstone (3700) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Pours a golden color with sudsy white head. Dry musty Orval like aroma. Soft texture. Dry musty almost funky; lightly sweet, orange peel notes. Fantastical complex and subtle. Reminds me of Orval. Notes: Bottle from my AK trip, May '17, opened Nov '17.

bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2017
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of herbs, barnyard, peach, lemon, and grapefruit. Flavor of oak, brett, herbs, pepper, straw, and grass with a dry, bitter finish.

jc1762 (1651) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2017
Tap into a wineglass showing two fingers of clean white foam with moderately filtered bright yellow. The nose shows light notes of bretty funk and Belgian yeast with a moderately intense bready malt backbone. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Clean and refreshing with a very light hollow malt backbone and a very mild bitterness on the finish.

skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2017
7/20/2013 750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Noda snifter. A~ glowing piss yellow haha. nice fluffy white head and a little bit of lacing. S~ lots of bready yeast up front. followed by pils malt and some zesty rye. also some floral notes and leathery brett funk. T~ pretty much follows the nose, extremely floral here! also a little citrus comes through, lemon, tangerine, lime, and orange zest. i think i was mistaking the rye in the smell with orange zest, every time i smell something zesty i always think rye. nice brett funk on the finish. very much like Arthur, which this recipe is supposably based off of. M~ extremely well carbonated, smooth, and very refreshing! O~ i love how you can really tell that both Grassroots and Anchorage had something to do with this. even in a blind tasting i’m sure i could point it out. it has the amazing citrus smoothness and carbonation of Arthur, and the incredible brett characteristics of Galaxy White IPA. i’ve never had anything from either of these breweries that hasn’t exceeded my expectations!
