This years anni ale has everything in it but the pitch fork and a bale of hay. With over two months of fermentation and cellaring time, this saison plows the field as it harvests spicy farmhouse overtones from its primary Fraunch saison yeast. That funky monkey delivers a strapping alc 9 % by vol, seeding a perfect foundation for secondary Brettanomyces fermentation, which hoes a cornucopia of tart and effervescent flavors. Distinct citrus notes from the finishing hops cultivate a naturally freaky fresh palate tweaker.
Heres to the next 17 trips around that burning ball in the sky!

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Tasted on 7/7/14 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Greens on Buford Highway. Pours very clear dark orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is a caramel malty version of spicy Saison with an herbal hops note and just a touch of funk. The flavor is the same malt-forward herbal Saison with some decent funk on the back of the palate. The body is medium with lively, stinging carbonation, and a long malty, spicy Saison, and touch of barnyard finish.

Pours a medium golden yellowish color. Aromas of fruit, yeast and some pepper. Flavors are sour, yeasty, and a touch of sweetness at the finish.

chinchill (4825) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 21, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2016 On tap at the brewery. Pours with a fine, clear but lightly hazy amber body. Unusual but appealing aroma. The flavor is stronger than the aroma suggests, and way more woody and with lots of red wine notes. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall: fine aroma but not flavor.

dmac (6105) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2015
22oz bomber from Homer321. Poured a super cloudy apple cider brown with a smaller tight foamy off white head. Aroma of green apples, super fruity, slight spice, loads of yeast, wet grains. Palate is medium to fuller with soft carbonation and a lingering fruitiness. Flavor is basically the same as the aroma, loads of apple, yeast, spicy, fruity. Solid

Thanks Dane! Hazy copper colour. Yeast and fruit dominate, bread, perfume and clove. Taste is boozy and sweet, no real brett signs here, light fruitiness and dry. Ok.

jkwood04 (5443) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2014
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spices and bananas, some pale malts, light hints of wheat, too much alcohol for this style, and some hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best.

Tmoney99 (14284) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Tap sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy fruit, spice, yeast and earthy malt aroma. Medium to full body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy yeast sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded with a solid change of pace brew.

5/15/14. Bomber. Pours hazy golden. More peachy than citrus nose with a strong bready Brett notes. Lots of funky dark flavors going on. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ruby tinged amber pour. Small off white head. Fruity aroma with notes of caramel. Earthy yeast flavor with a nice malt backbone. Can tell it is 9%.
