4.75/5 rDev +8.7%
Batch 3 poured into Sante Adairius tulip.
Appearance is a pale gold color, with fizzy thin white head that settles quickly. Leaves behind little bubble masses mostly towards the edges and center of glass. Gorgeous carbonation bubbles streaming upward letting you know there will be some scrubbing action on the palate. 4.75
Aroma is very much deeply rooted in the barrel aged saison style. White and red wine, deep Brett funk, tropical citrus mainly pineapple and mango with a little juicy peach and sweet lemon in the mix. Some earthy oak, flowers, and blueberries come forth as well. Wow.. 4.75
The flavor is again highly leaning towards barrel aged saison territory but the lines have blurred so much nowadays it could go either way. Has tons of wine and grape flavors, orange pith, tart raspberry, some spicy yeast esters, deep oak, and "rustic", flowery funk. Very toned down on PH level. Greatness on all levels. 4.75
Mouthfeel is on the light end. Body is airy with just the right amount of carbonation for the style. And the finish is bone dry with the tartness being it's most agressive mid to late palate. 4.75
Sante does it again. Brilliant and from what I've heard batch 1 is the best. This is a bit better than batch 2. Unfortunately I missed out on 1. This reminds me a bit of Handfarm or CD6 but with a better mouthfeel,and flavors that I enjoyed a bit more. Let there be more breweries like SARA, HF, JK, SP, TH, RR, AA, and LA. That way I won't have to constantly be trading for it, rather just purchase direct. #farmhousefetish
