Into SARA snifter. Batch 2.


Appearance is a rustic orange with pinkish hues. Sports a medium sized active eggshell white head that settles to nice little frothy layer. Hazy in appearance, more so than there standard or barrel aged saisons.


Aroma is very nice. Cold it's subdued so you have to let it warm up a bit and swirl it around. Then boom, strawberry cotton candy, raspberry, pink grapefruit, perfumey floral notes, and a wonderful vanilla and wood from the oak come through. A gorgeous incorporation of the strawberries on the smell.


The taste follows the nose and thankfully so! You get this soft, creamy strawberry essence on top of citrus such as lime, mandarin, and lychee. Vanilla forward oak with subtle coconut notes round out the fruit flavors. Also has that zesty and slightly earthy brett thing going on but certainly more of behind the scenes. A floral quality like that of flower teas finishes off the palate making this a damn complex fruited saison.


Mouthfeel is delicate and soft. Light bodied, medium level carbonation, and slightly sweet upfront but finishes dry. Has this fruited seltzer vibe thing going on, it's weird but enticingly welcome.


Overall a wonderful fruited saison by Sante. I love that sudden strawberry candy like note that hits upfront on the nose and the taste. Then it all settles in to a more traditional barrel aged saison character. Seek this out without hesitation.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale and very hazy. Nice white head. Never full dissipates.

Smell - Kinda bretty. Fruity. Some very light strawberry. Pale malts.

Taste - Lightly tart. Pale malt. I don't really taste any strawberry until the end. Grainy in the back.

Mouthfeel - Light tartness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Nice fruitiness to this. The beer itself really comes through but the fruit complements it well.
