Bottle shared by Sean I think? Thanks dude. Served in a tulip.

A - White foam quickly settles to nothing. Looks like apricot juice with its murky medium orange body.

S - Aroma is heavy on the apricot, with light touches of oak and one of the dirtier brett strains. A bit of funk and a slight medicinal twang inhabit the periphery, but this is all about the fruit.

T - Taste is actually an improvement, as some of the dirtier brett flavors have been replaced by a mild lactic sourness. Again, light oak, but not much discernible wine or spirit flavor. Perhaps a tad lacking in depth, but what's there is delicious.

M - Medium body, with a tannic and dry texture to it before yielding to some lingering juicy fruit stickiness on the palate. Fairly low carbonation, but still crisp and refreshing.

D - This was quite enjoyable, and perfect for a hot 4th of July. My first Sante Adairius experience that bodes well for future offerings. I'd love to have this again and see if the wild yeast develops over time.

my first beer from these folks thats not a collaboration, and its a pretty good one, albeit a little short of where the hype would have it. the apricots didnt seem that prominent to me, but the sour saison base was awesome, and the barrel aspect fantastic. hazy orange tinted blonde color, short but lasting white inch on top. the nose here is more saison yeast than brett, but there is some funk intermixed with the moderate acid tartness. the apricots arent invisible on the nose, but their presence is light, more of an orchard fruit sweetness than apricots specifically, but i get it. the flavor is light on the apricot too, which is fine for me, i dont reckon it needs much. the blonde sour saison beer is just great, with a lot of yeast character in addition to the mouthfeel, its got a little spice, and the wheat malt base has some serious body to it. the carbonation is pronounced, and the finish is dry. as an apricot wild ale, its not my favorite, its not fruit forward enough for that, but as a wild ale in general, its exquisite. the oak on this adds a nice layer that jives famously with the yeast. i would buy this if it were available here for sure.

Bottle pour at the Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales.

A - Pours a hazy sun kist peach color with a nice one and a half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving small streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of juicy apricots, woody oak, mild funk, white wine, bit of lactic sourness, some must and a bit of sweet pale malt. Love the funky apricot.

T - Starts off with the ripe apricots slowly giving way to some mild musty funk, white wine, oak, yogurt and a bit of sweetness from the base malt. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish. Really awesome flavors working together make this one super easconsume.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, sticky fruit feel with a nice dry ending. Really awesome flavors working together make this one super easy to consume.

O - Loved this one. We drank a bunch of other Peach and Stone Fruit sours the night before and I would say this was my favorite of the bunch. I would love to get my hands on a couple bottles of this one.
