750 mL bottle. Hazy orange body. Nose is acidic with a little vinegar. Oak and some wine. Tastes very oaky with a vinegar acidity. Kinda intense. Not a sutble barrel character. Medium low carbonation and medium bodied. Not my favorite SARA beer.

Was lucky enough to try this and many other Sante Adairius beers at a recent share as one of the guys was a club member at SARA! Absolutely loved this refreshing farmhouse!

Kevin, cheers bro. Nose is a touch acetic but the taste is really nice. Wine barrel, maybe? Just a nice sour with a clean taste.

Bottle shared by Curran tonight, thanks man.

This pours a slightly hazy straw yellow, with a half inch head, and not much in the gway of lacing.

Smells like funky citrus, lemony funk, and some lactic sour aroma.

This isn't the most complex farmhouse ale get, but that doesn't detract from how drinkable and more-ish it is. It's very citrusy without fruit additions, with a moderate level of tartness and sourness, about a 5/10.

This is light bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel, and a great level of drinkability.

Awesome stuff.

On tap at the brewery. Really impressed with this blend, highly recommend. If I wasn't driving I would have gone in for a few more pours. Wish this wasnt a Nonna and become a regular rotating beer.
