4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Several times now. Thanks to Eric for sharing the first bottle! Another bottle last week, served in a Sante Adairius tulip. Pours a nice, semi-cloudy light yellow. Bright color and good head. Nose has a bit of tart lemon along with some pineapple and tropical fruit. Light body and taste. Touch of grain. (I’ve gotten some tannin in bottles in the past, however.) Light lemon and lactic through the finish. Very well done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. Gusher Alert! Hazy gold with a small head. Soft, delicate white grape jellies. Lemon and honeyed poppyseed cake. Cobwebs, attic dust. The taste is wonderfully rounded, light. Soft citrus. Brett. A touch of marshmallow and spring countryside. Soft, supple on the palate. Wonderful nuance. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared with Prufrockstar
I’m pleased to get a chance to try Sante Adairius; just starting to hear some positive buzz and of course I love the rustic ales angle. Pours the color of pineapple juice with a whipped egg white head. Intensely funky aroma compared to the Prairie Elisa5eth that preceded it, heavy latrine and some lactic aromas. The flavor follows fairly closely: lemon-juice puckering lead-in, tannic cherry pit, brett, leather, turning to a strong bitter element (more tannins?) late that seem like a flaw, as if it is trying too hard at the end. This one has a lot of interesting elements and hints at good things to come from Sante Adairius, but it doesn’t really come together like I’d want and up with a mid-range score.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle, thanks to bytemesis. I’ve been looking forward to this one for awhile! Pours murky gold-yellow. Carl’s "pineapple juice" is appropriate. Frothy white head, great lacing. Aroma: whoa funk. Ripe, juicy fruit in the aroma. Sweetness comes through with the funk -- lemon-pepper sweet tarts? Do those exist? Taste: dry (and I mean dry!) and puckering -- only lightly tart, but puckering nonetheless. After acclimating, the sweetness starts to come back. Medium body, slick texture, oily and mouth-coating, lively carbonation. Overall: nice enough, but next to eliza5beth this plays second fiddle. Glad there are folks brewing like this, at any rate!
