Wow that sounds like a really weird beer. If anyone can pull that sort of thing off it's Sante!
If it similiar to Quality of life, I am in for a treat.
Also, anybody know what the chances are that Westly will still be on tap tomorrow?
In the Another Alliteration realm.
Westly’s been on since Sunday, might last longer.
Westly kicked this evening, something new tomorrow.
posted up at the bar at Portal if any if you chucklefucks want to split a bottle of something

Posting something like this without notes should be a bannable offense.
Nonna’s 6-9 were pretty comparable. 8 stood out of those. All had legs. Then 10 was probably best in straight up. In order I’d say: 8, 10, 9, 7, 6. The cuvée of all five was pretty incredible too. 9 was not as bright of a bottle as the one I had a month ago; much more Bernice-y saison, bright. Two Rustic caps that didn’t show their age.
More or less agree, but I might shuffle around 9, 7, and 6. Variations on a Theme makes a lot of sense.
Nice meeting you guys (except box_social). Look forward to future hangs, hit me up if you wanna do some skiing this winter or are beering in SF.
I’d personally place them
8 - lighter body, crispy carb, more botanical, close to Variations on a Theme
> 6 - most complex by a hair, funk show, soft light but tight body- a little like soda, but still having a full SARA saison body
> 10 - 2nd most complex, very funky nose, lots of alternative spirit flavors vs. the others
> 9 - flatter, softer cohesion of flavors, stone fruit delicately comes through start to finish
> 7 - enjoyable, most like more recent Nonna’s/straight up saisons.
Damn you're good at this
Just trying to stay on your guy’s level. @Humble Sea for brunch now. Sante Capitola later?
Back in SF already, hope to catch you in Tahoe sometime
personally it was 9, 8, 10, 6, 7 for me. all still had that noticeable Sante flavor with the older batches feeling a bit thin. would bang all of them again for sure.
I thought 6 could stand a few more years in the bottle, none felt over the hill.
was 6 the first one bottled? I read a review of mine on Nonna #3 i can still remember that beer so well, it was just the right amount of sour. almost an oude bruin if irc. Anyway from my old scores on BA #8 was the highest, seems like it still holds it own! I did not like #2 at all apparently, tho no notes as to why
nice line up fellas
EDIT: nonna #3 was 10%, it couldn't have been that high
5 was bottled, no clue about 4 and prior
5 was indeed the first bottling.
