750ml bottle of indeterminate batch (I think 2), generously bought over by powz87 at our recently celebratory whale tasting today, 3/22/2014.

Review #498.

App- Hazy orange body that looks like orange juice with pulp, nice one finger white head with a normal pour with normal saison retention (which is a lot) and lacing. Beautiful beer.

Smell- Holy apricot funk. Not much acid, but a lot of sweet tangerine/orange citrus flavors and a bit of barrel funk. Not super complex like a Belgian geueze, but so interesting and delicious just the same.

Flavour- Very good! Lots of fruity apricot character, with some tannins and a bit of funk. Not very acidic, maybe 3/10 vinegar, but drinking incredibly well. Like the nose, not as complex as the Belgian counterparts, but not gonna lie, this is really tasty.

Mouthfeel- Crisp yet creamy medium bodied beer that is incredibly refreshing. We drank this between 2012 BADL and Murda'd Out Stout, and this appropriately cleansed our palate in the most enjoyable way. Tart, crisp funk mixed in with some apricot juice on the backend.

Overall- One of the best American fruit sours/saisons I've had thus far. Jeez! So much more delicate yet flavourful than the likes of Chez Monus and Atrial Rubicite. It's up there with New Glarus' Very Sour Blackberry in terms of the drinking experience. Sante Adairius is for real!

One of the more overrated beers out there. Apricot pit and mild sourness. Get a de garde imperial apricot bu and thank me later.
