Brewed by:
Sante Adairius Rustic Ales
California, United States

Style: Belgian Saison

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cellarman began as a collaboration with Jeff Kimpe, Triple Rock's brewmaster, for San Francisco Beer Week. Our goal was to illuminate the versatility of the saison style, and to pay homage to those unsung brewery workers whose efforts go largely unrecognized. This beer has morphed since its original inception, and Cellarman now spends all of its time in French oak. Tart and lemony with an arid dryness, Cellarman celebrates cooperation, friendship, and hard work. From our foudres to your glass, Sante!

The beer pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. It has medium high carbonation. The beer smells of lemon, apples, funk, and a little floral. It is lightly tart, with lemon, pineapple, earthy funk, and floral. The feel is medium. A great Saison from Sante Adairus.

Has a very barrel forward nose, defined by leather, wet basement, moldy wood and yogurt. The interesting thing about this is, that there is a recognizable freshness, coming from the base beer, at the same time. It provides aromas of lemon zest, soft wheat and dried herbs, building up a perfectly enjoyable collision.

Has a fine effervescence with a light, sour and dry body, making this remarkably refreshing, with a nice smoothness to it.

Tastes of an initial flavor explosion on the palate, mellowed by a pleasant yeast silkness, enriching unripe grapefruits, kiwi pulp, mushrooms and blue cheese amongst warming campfire wood. Turns a tad sweeter, with toffee joining in, highlighting the oranges by adding a fruity sweetness, entagled into the oak. This gets softened by an aqueous quality, producing just a light hint of spices, perfectly integrating lemon zest and a late herb dryness with some prevailing mushrooms.

Incredibly well nuanced beer with an absolutely astonishing complexity, while it drinks almost too easy with a world class mouthfeel. This may be the closest thing i‘ve yet enjoyed so far to a belgian saison / lambic from the US and puts up this brewery with the very best in the world for me.
