3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled shared at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat and Belgian yeast notes, as well as some light funk and something that resembles pickles. The flavor is similar. There is a hint of vinegar that that once again reminds me of pickles, as well as some light funk and some wheat and tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A pale golden color with a solid white head. Sweet malt notes up front followed by lemon peel and a moderate lactic tartness. Very nice white grape and grass aromas, too. Surprisingly tropical with a bit of yeast. The flavor is great as well. Nice intense fruit (pineapple, lemon, grape, and orange) with hints of black pepper, spice, and sweet malt.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012.
Pours clear yellow, white-ish head, low retention. I’m surprised by how clear this beer is. The aroma is real funky and bretty, lots of tropical fruits, a touch of barnyard, and some pepper. The flavor is even more involved. Pineapple, pepper, brett, a touch of lactic acid, tangerine, great beer.
After trying all 16 Santes (1-15 and the special version of 11) this was the best, for me anyway.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clearish gold, few bubbles. Nose of wet wood, funky, wet barrel, white wine and grapes. Taste of lightly tart grapes, wheat, a bit thin but pretty interesting in flavor, and really refreshing. I like this a lot! Reminds me of a berliner.
