Dunt (283) - 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.

Leveejr (91) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours golden yellow with a creamy white head. Aroma of lemons, light funk, oak. Taste is crisp and clean. Same as aroma with slight wine notes and sticky finish. Excellent beer. 10% but no booze whatsoever. Refreshing and drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (4105) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
750ml corked bottle (Batch Dec 19 2013 10.11%alc/vol) pours a hazy golden yellow color with a massive white head decent retention leaving some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon, white wine, yeast, light fruits (perhaps apple). Taste is a lemon sourness with a fruity and malty sweetness, a light white wine dryness and light citrus hop bitterness. A complex and well crafted brew, but not one of my favorite styles, although I still recommend it for others who can appreciate this style.

drfabulous (3854) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 6, 2014
750 ml bottle from Corvallis shop. Pours big carbonation. Aroma is wine and yeast. Tart taste. Lemon. Holy mackerel. Damn good. Saison all the way. Sour doesnít do the style justice.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy lemon yellow with white head and a bit of tiny sediment. Smells good too; white wine, oak, funk, and lemon zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Beerman6686 (4228) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2014
this one poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of lots of fruit, light vinous notes, some cherries and carmel too. Falvor was tropical fruits, green aple, light funk, some wood, and cherry pie. Pretty uniquie and interesting sour.

poisoneddwarf (1692) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 4, 2014
750 ml corked bottle. Bottled 10/18/13; 10.24% ABV. Aroma is bretty, vinegar, lemon, earth, light wood, fan-freaking-tastic. Pours hazy golden with a two-finger white head with decent retention. Taste is lightly sweet, sour (6/10 on a sour scale), finishing savory. Nice sauvignon blanc character, along with some green apple, peach. Not quite champagne-like in effervescence, but quite highly carbonated. Very different and unique.

Nocturne (752) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
750ml bottle. Pale gold with white foam. Nose is funky, hint of gueuze-like cheese, and has a nice influence from the barrels. Tastes bright, sour, lemon citrussy, honey, again nice wine barrel twang. Hides the 10% well. Lovely classy sour. Really wish I had easy access to their beers.
