750ml bottle, from the 2017 Cellar series. Unfiltered, slightly hazy golden yellow body, one and half finger frothy white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is passion fruit tartness, a bit of leather, oak, vinous character, a bit of grain and biscuit, kiwi. Damn, this is great! Flavour is even better- a beautiful blend of passion fruit, kiwi, stonefruit, lemon with a bit of grainy sweetness, touch of oak, Brett leather. Effervescent and very tart in a fruit-forward manner, rather than actual acidity. SARA truly accomplished something here that few other breweries have done. The tart fruit flavours comes across so well yet does not overwhelm the base blended saison which already has a lot of complexity to it. Bravo, well done!

Best cellar beer of 2017 hands down, have had it over a dozen times and it still leaves me wanting more.
