Notes / Commercial Description:
Westly is a reinterpretation of on of our favorite beers we make here at SARA, West Ashley. It is also an exercise in folly. We indulged ourselves on question: what would Ashley be like with more fruit and longer aging? Twice the amount of apricots and twice the time in barrels, Westly is the answer. We hope you agree that sometimes more is better. Sometimes folly is the path. Sante!

This has a beautiful apricot color with deep stone fruit flavor and refreshing medium mouth feel. It's very balanced and well made, just don't expect anything super complex. I don't see the need to pay the price to acquire this, but it's certainly a very good beer.

2015 B2. Had at apricot share with about 35 other apricot sours and siasons. Top notch apricot saison. Thought the finish is what separated it from other apricots. Great smell, and terrfic light airy, not that sour. I woulds say this and La Fosse B2 one the share for me. I love Fou but 15 was a little lack luster compared to westly.
