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.

Pailhead (5443) - 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.

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
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.

Cybercat (3875) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours hazy golden, thin whitish head. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus and grape mainly. Flavor echoes the fruit notes of the aroma and throws in a bit of malt. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but it goes down well.

Westmeister (2016) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2015
HMOG 2015. Thanks to jrob21 for bringing. Tried two batches. Older batch was actually a bit more enjoyable. Vinous, wine/oak, spices, with a touch of funk. Funk comes through much more in the newest batch.

Bottle shared at HMOG and paired with a more recent bottling. The newer bottle has a little more funk in the aroma but the flavor is too similar still for me to tell a difference. Light grape and wine flavors. Medium funkiness. Well rounded and tasty.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness / tartness, some light malts, some light oak and wine, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A solid beer.
