Brewed by:
Sante Adairius Rustic Ales
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.

Bottle is about 2.5 years old.

A: Orange tinted pale with fizzy white head that quickly disappears to nothingness.

S: Funky barnyard and earth alongside a good dose of tart apricot, earth, orange, and light oak.

T: Hay, sour apricot, grainy wheat, a touch of citrus and new oak, and a whiff of tartness that grows to medium-light through the long finish. Sourness is firm but not excessive. The fruit component is noticeable but pretty light at this point.

M: Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation.

O: An excellent fruited sour, one of the better American versions; sort of Fou Foune-ish. Doesn’t quite hit the complexity of the Belgians but it’s still damn good.

Pours a nice peach amber color. Aroma is tart, funky and stone fruit. Flavor is fantastic. Nice tartness with stone fruit sweet and sour on the finish. Has a nice body and overall a delicious beer.
