UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 750 ml bottle from bytemesis - thanks again, Mike! 2017 vintage. Pours a cloudy gold with a slight orange-red hue and a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Right-away I'm hit with something a little aggressive here that must be the strawberry past its prime, more of a grape-yogurt kind of thing. There's some acidity and oak, grains and grass, a bit of lemon and plum skins. Medium-bodied, with a tangy, acidic mouthfeel and modest carbonation. It's good but not as good as other SARA stuff I've had, and it probably needs to be fresher. baraciisch (4397) - California, USA - FEB 26, 2018
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden orange. Aroma of fresh strawberries, buttery oak, citrus, hay, lemon zest, funk... Flavor is only moderately tart, tons of complexity, oak and earthy Saison grains play perfectly with fresh strawberries throughout and acidity is present but secondary to the cask base and fruit, definitely not a puckered... Prefer it to the 200, but both are world class beers... lots of funk, light minerality... excellent, really impressed

Bottle at home, shared with lenincat, thanks to bytemesis for sending. Love me a cask gold. Cloudy orange appearance with a thin white head. Aroma has some funk, light cheese/ parmesan, bright strawberries, vanilla, and light wood. Surprisingly not exceedingly sour. It's moderately tart which I didn't expect. I had in mind it would be like Cascade Strawberry. Refreshing, fruity. Super easy to chug. Doesn't shit my pants but it is easily the finest strawberry I've had. Would swallow again. Way better than expected. LeninCat also very much liked this. Dogbrick (16523) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Sample from Batch #4 at Kurtkeller 027: Sante Adairius-tastic 01 on 07/30/2017. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. The aroma consists of strawberry, yeast, malt and oak. Medium body with flavors of funky strawberry, yeast, citrus, oak and biscuit malt. The finish is funky with a strawberry and yeast aftertaste. Very good beer overall.
