Notes / Commercial Description:
Orange, lactic, and bursting with apricot aroma, West Ashley is built for consideration and conversation.

A: Semi opaque peach, orange pour with pulsating yellow highlights. There’s some retention with miniscule lacing

S: Aroma has a musty, grainy-funk barrel presence with apricots, nectarines, lemons, grapes, and bright citrus: slightly vinous, rationally acidic, and moderately juicy

T: A restrained vibrant earthiness of the fresh cut grass, and approachable tartness. The notes sing to jammy apricots, pinot noir, grapes, peach, orange rind, oak, wood, and citrus

M: Clean, effervescence, and lively which smoothens out to a sweet, semi-creamy jam: moderate levels of carbonation, with a medium feel and dryness in course

O: Balanced and multifaceted with warmth: entertains exploration and stimulation

Pours a cloudy orange colored beer with a medium white head, collapsing instantly.

Smells of ripe apricots, fresh cut flowers, lime zest and wet grass. Got a prominent mushroom funk quality to it, together with cream cheese and moldy earth.

Has a light, mellow mouthfeel with an uprising effervescence during the finish.

Got a mellow potato peel yeast softness to it, opening up the palate to the beers herbal, prominent funkiness. Turns more sour once the beers effervescence unfolds, bringing apricot pulp and subtle lime zest to the palate. Finishes heavier on the fruits, earth, funk and a long lasting lime bitterness, building up a perfect balance for the apricots.

This is nice, not your typical awa at all with a well established sourness, which accompanies the apricots perfectly well. The funkiness creates a subtle complexity which guides through the whole experience, highlighting the fruits incredibly well.

The beer pours a Clear yellow with a medium white head. It has medium carbonation. The beer smells apricots, apples, floral, fresh cut grass, and funk. It tastes very tart, with apricots, apples, floral, and funk. The body is medium with a dry finish. A great wild ale from Sante Adairus.
