COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after our 660 gallon "oval," Cask 200 is a celebration of the unexpected and an experiment in variation. Each time we package a portion of its contents, fresh beer is added back to Cask 200 to mix and re-ferment with the aged beer still inside. While this solera-style saison will vary with each bottling, you can expect a delicate malt base supported by funky, yeast-derived flavors and a dry, acidic finish. Sante!

tectactoe (1441) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Tony. Opaque, solid peach colored body with a foamy, bubbly white head. Aroma of some funky, musty sweatsocks, sour peach & apricot with a bit of stone fruit acidity, & noticeable, tart lacto yeast, perhaps with a light yogurt essence. Very fresh & sour taste. Lots of puckering lemon, peach, stone fruit, & a mild, sweaty barnyard funk that creeps in mid-palate. Hint of white grape & wood in the finish, effervescent & light mouth feel, leaves a lingering, dry tartness & some musty hay with a touch of acidity. A deliciously tart saison from Sante Adairius.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer is pale yellow with a bone white head. Lasting retention with copious lacing. The aroma brings stone fruits, apricots, floral notes. Some oak and white wine in the flavor with prominent acetic quality. Really tasty. I’d enjoy having this again sometime.
