August 20, 2016. Bottle at Sweet & Sour. Thanks for sharing!
Light hazy with a small frothy and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is soft fruity, tart and funky with orange zest, lemon, grapes, a touch of gooseberries, minerals, light funk. Taste is light tart, a touch of sweetness, funky. Finish is tart fruity, lemon juice, grapes, white wine notes, oak, minerals with a very light salty note. Light to medium, smooth carbonation.
Another great smooth and drinkable one from SARA.

ClarkVV (5686) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle drunk 6/10/16.
Gently hazy, blonde-copper body is topped by a small, but very dense, white head showing moderate retention.
Almost gose-like in the nose, between the spices (which are moderately done), the natural salinity inherent in SA’s beers and of course, the lactic acid. Some cream-of-wheat-like character lies behind it, with more minerality and gentle citrus-like acidity on the finish. Wine character is low, which is like, and the wood is soft and gentle here. No big buttery oak notes and no alcohol.
Incredibly soft, nearly chewy texture thanks to, assumedly, wheat and barrel tannin. The spices and sour acids keep things dry and add crispness through the middle and on the finish. Sante’s house yeast has a wonderful almost chalky minerality to it, with light salt accents as well. Things seem a bit more sour/tart than Hill Farmsteads, which I’m not as crazy about, but the classy house character is charming, nonetheless.

Bottle share. Hazy yellow-gold color with a bit of white head. Complex aroma is fruity, light spice, and barrel notes. Taste is fruity sweetness, tart, and a nice compliment from the barrel treatment. A nice funky tart vibe. Solid.

jbruner (3922) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bottle via trade. Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bomber with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild musty funk with a nice lactic acidity and slight fruit behind. Taste is even bigger than the nose, nice lactic acidity and funky barrel notes, tannin notes underneath, good balance. Bubbly carbonation, light and effervescent, really nice.
