750ml bottle thanks to rich. Pours out a hazy burnt orange topped with a small fizzy head. Nose is lots of barrel some lemon zest citrus notes and a light funky tartness. Taste is more of the barrels citrus zing and many more layers going on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml corked bottle (April 2016 Edition - 9.72%) pours a hazy orange brown color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is apples and citrus with some wine grapes and hints of brandy. Taste is a lemon tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness finishing quite sweet on the palate. Medium bodied with nice carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a fantastic brew that is unique and tasty and definitely recommended for a wonderful tasting experience.

A bottle on the Ale Apothecary beers tasting at Firefly on Cambie. Tasted with Brian. Bottled 07-Apr-2016. Pours a clear copper with a tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet, funky, fermented fruits, nail polish notes, plums. Taste is the same character. Good stuff.

A weird surprisingly sweet sour ale, with nice malty characters reminiscent of, like,a flemish red or oud bruin. Cool beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled March 23, 2013. Originally reviewed 7/4/2013. Slight haze to the orange body. Nice white head, with discrete bubbles. Settles to a collar and a few wisps.
Fascinating aroma. Pale malt. Sweetness. A bit of oak. Some acids. Fruity apples and grape.
Tastes of sour apple. Like a granny Smith. Sweet pale malts. Oak and light bitterness. Some yeasty esters. A hint of that brandy in the back. Booze lingers.
Heavy and a bit sweet. Well carbonated.
Always a fascinating beer from Ale Apothecary. No exception here. The Brandy barrel keeps this interesting, even if it’s subtle.

Bottle shared by Jeremy - thanks! Clear Amber pour, short-lived head. Aroma is cool - herbal, minty, vinegar, fruity, some funk. Taste is sweet but with nice vinegar/herbal to keep it in a cool balance. Full body, slick texture. Overall: as expected, a unique and tasty brew.

why oh why do they make these beers so strong, it ruins them. This would’ve been world class at 5-6% but now its just a boozey-brand mess. Too bad.
