Brewed by:

California, United States
santeadairius.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Orange, lactic, and bursting with apricot aroma, West Ashley is built for consideration and conversation. While Ashley starts as a simple Saison, careful aging in French Oak Pinot Noir barrels with apricots, our house microbes, and warm encouragement transform her into a tart, complex and delectable beer.

Really hazy golden color with a bit of white foam. Aroma has lots of unripe apricots and lemony funk. Taste starts with tart, unripe apricots, stonefruit skin, acidic fruit juice, really dry finish. Light body, really dry, medium carbonation. Overall it's a great, fruity sour. Very refreshing and easy drinking.

batch 12 (we think) drank on 4/2/2017 side by side Westly

Look - moderate head that disappeared fairly quick, fairly thick body, light orange / dark yellow color. Sexy

Smell / Taste- a lot of oak and interesting fruitiness to go with the apricot burst. That interesting fruitiness I not know is the pinor noir barrels because I thought this was just oak barrels. That definitely explains the complexity that really puts this beer on another level.

Feel - perfect level of tartness while the flavors just soak into my mouth and linger so nicely.

Overall - amazing beer. Glad I have a couple more.
