Dunt (299) - Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Thanks for bringing this guy over Todd, been interested in trying Ale Apothecary fr a little while now. Pours a light orange in color with two fingers worth of bretty, frothy head. Really nice brett forward nose, itís dry, lemony, apricot, and very saison-like in nature. Flavor has a lot of similarties to the nose, itís not as dry or tart, itís a little sweeter, but still very crisp and saison-like. There is a light honey flavor to it, almost like a nice biere de garde. Very clean and lightly tart. Light to moderate mouthfeel, gentle carbonation, no acidity, and a moerate finish. Really, really nice beer. Iív been going back to smelling it a ton, it has a really nice farmhouse character to it reminiscent of Logsdon and HIll Farmstead. Incredibly crushable at 9.3%, this guy can sneak up on you if youíre not careful. Definitely looking forward to whatís to come from Ale Apothecary in the coming months/years.

Super hazy golden pour with white head. Aromas of pear, summer fruits, sour notes. Full bodied, well rounded, some fruit, kind of creamy, unripe nectarines, lingering sour and wood notes. Great.

brokensail (13201) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Thanks, Ryan. Clear yellow pour with white foam. Big time lemon and green grapes on the nose. A bit of melon, some peach, and a hint of herbs. Nice stone fruits, too. Really bright sourness and acidity on the tongue. Tons of tangy fruits such as grape, dried apricot, and lemon. Slight oak and damp, grassy funk. Really nice.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Courtesy of steebo Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy candied orange, lemon, lemon peel, and white wine. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a large bubbled ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of orange. The finish has moderate orange peel, light lemon, and a touch I of vinous notes.

Bottle: Thanks, Steve. Cloudy bright yellow body. Chunky white head crackles & fades quick. Huge bretty aroma; dusty cotton, wood, funky white pepper, musk, old pineapple, cobweb, mild mineral water. Flavor of light mango, pineapple, dusty cotton & moldy barnyard funk. Woody, loaded with Brett, hay, & mild horsey notes. A small touch of vinous white grape in the finish. Super effervescent mouth feel, lofty & prickly. Good stuff.
