750ml bottle, 2018 Cellar Club Release, poured into a Sante Adairius snifter glass. Enjoyed on 10.28.18, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a bright orange color, super cloudy and opaque with a foamy white head that rises high with great retention and soapy lacing. The aroma is wonderful, super funky with a great expression of the Sante house cultures, tons of fresh peach skin, peach juice and toasty peach pit offers a nice earthy counterbalance to the sweeter fruit character. Soft pale dough, white grape, oak barrel and light citrus peel rounds out a very expressive and lightly tart aroma. The flavors are great, juicy peach and fuzzy and fleshy peach skin, the peach pit offers that same earthy counterbalance with a floral and fruity house funk, very strong and bacterial, mild barrel character, musty oak, lightly earthy and chewy with pale dough, mineral water and a light honey and vanilla finish. The mouthfeel is nice, coating, lively yet creamy with a crisp medium body that has nice legs and a tart finish.

Verdict: A fantastic wild saison from Sante Adairius. The peach is the star, from the skin, to the juice to the pit, there is a bit of each element expressed in the beer and they work together in a nice harmony while the funk profile and barrel character helps to bring out further nuanced elements to the beer.

oak aged american wild ale with peaches, sour and saison type, really good, apparently pretty rare, huge thanks to my homie for sharing the bottle, this was totally unexpected and a lot of fun, a good one to share given the high acidity and fanciness. it is pale and hazy, looks like all the rest of them that are on this level, holding an inch of wispy airy belgian looking white head and smelling like nectarines and tart orchard fruit, clean bacterial sourness and nice funk. its woody in a wine sense, clean and sturdy, tannic but not messy or heavy, bold but not brutish. the peach hits the nostrils early but the taste buds late, juicy and fully natural, but overrun just a little by all the late onset bacterial acidity here, not quite teeth hurting or stomach wrenching, but not mellow either, i would trade some acid for funk, although the brett side of this is nice if you can tease it out, similar in this way to so many other sante adairius beers i have had, good but the mix is just off. peach and lemon in the flavor, wheat and pils type malts, body and length, bubbles galore, enough is enough, but this is great. lucky to have had this one, and shared it with such a good friend, but i cant imagine this will get better in anyones cellar, the peach is already mild, and the acid already high, drink now or this may be unrecognizable before too long...
