Batch 5 into SARA tulip.


Appearance is hazy pale gold with a small white head leaving a thin ring around the edge of the glass.


Aroma is very fruity citrus forward, soft fresh flower and slightly spicy brett phenols, oak, and hints of vinous white grape.


Taste is apricot fuzz, tangerine juice, sweet lemon, blood orange, hints of pineapple, oak, and the faintest white wine. Lovely apricot!


Mouthfeel is light, medium carbonation, very tart throughout but not sour. Drying on the finish with the oak coming to help that drying affect.


Like other fruited SARA Saisons this is not dominant on the fruit but just a very integrated and pretty complex farmhouse ale. As it warms the apricot comes out more on the nose and the taste gets more complex. Fantastic wild ale, love them apricots.
