BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sante Adairius Rustic Ales
California, United States
santeadairius.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.30%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Cloudy straw appearance with slight white head. Mild sour fruity aroma. Taste is a moderate tart sour fruity that has little harshness at the end. A very pleasant sour.

Frankly, this beer is too sour for me. However, taste, feel, and overall, I think thanks a great beer. When you taste this beer, you will taste a deep apricot funk
