Sante Adairius West Ashley

westashley

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.

Final Rating: 4.59/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Batch 7.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a small taster. ~5oz pour at bottle share. Review copied from notes.

Pours hazy amber body, aroma is lactic tartness, stone fruit, slight farmhouse funk. Tongue matches the nose with lots of apricot / stone fruit on the follow through – not as acidic as I thought, more balanced fruitiness with a nice pulpy aftertaste with some barrel in there as well. Medium carbonation and body.

Overall delightful, would love to try it again.
