Poured a hazy apricot orange with a whisp of white soapy head

Nose was stone fruit,lemon peel and yeast

Flavor was under ripe nectarine, peach and lemon zest. Tartness was reminiscent of hill farmstead with a substantial amount of fruit. Suttle funk which complimented the fruit extremely well

Overall this was awesome! Cant wait to try more from sante!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange. Small white head. Thin collar

Smell - Stone fruit and a light citrus. Grainy and a light acidity.

Taste - Sour and grainy. Lemony with a mild funk from the yeast. Peachy flavor. Simple but nice.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Good tartness. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - This is a simple beer, but it's really good.

Appears light gold with great carbonation. Smells of the signature Sante yeast, some citrus. Taste is tart, get some spices, just a bit of oak, more of a light brett saison rather than a belgian blonde or typical wild ale. Light bodied with minimal aftertaste. Overall, this is like a more sessionable Bernice. Very good.
