Anchorage Brewing Company / Tired Hands Brewing Company Migrating Eyes (Batch #1) – Saison at 8% ABV (C$9.72 at Collective, 375 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 21-Jan-2020)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with a short, short-lived loose white head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: stone fruit, citrus, dry hay funk, cereal grains. (8/10) Taste: moderate tart, moderate-low sweet, moderate-low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, drying tart finish. (4/5)

Ugly as sin, but otherwise quite pleasant – not unlike the fish on the label, I guess. Stone fruit and citrus balance well on the nose, with a small but definite Brett funk coming to play. On the tongue, sweetness is restrained and the mouthfeel dry without becoming astringent, allowing the tartness to shine. Good stuff. (16/20)
