3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked with hemp twine tie. Quite the packaging for sure. Clear bright golden yellow. Crisp, wild, super fruity nose. Lemon, apple, some banana, lots of tropical character. Crisp pale malt, lots of fruit depth from the yeast, nuetral wood notes abound. Such a unique beer and great packaging. Iím enjoying it more as I near the end, I just donít think Iíd buy again at the price.

Bottle from Daniel in trade. Aroma and flavor of saisony wild ale with lots of carbonation and lots of chardonnay barrel. Palate is amazing on this one, pretty delicate and refreshing. Great beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a trade with a friend. Shared with Dan and Sean at the Pig. Pours a lovely yellowish-gold with just a tinge of haze. Small white head formed and lasted with nice varied lacing. Aroma was fruits like white grapes, pears, peaches and nectarines. Also a slight funky-bretty aroma as well. The taste was so damned good. All of the fruits on the nose come through nicely and well balanced. The mild funk and tartness from the wild yeasts hit you on the finish. Modestly dry finish and light body overall. I loved it!!

Bottle share. Thanks Jonny. Cloudy yellow-orange, bubbly white cap that reduces to froth. Aroma of lemon, orange, funky yeast, attic. Taste is sweet and tart. Chewy mouthfeel, dry finish.

Bottle pour, thanks Brad. Hazy straw color, small white head. Subtle musty lemon aroma, big floral notes. Tastes a lot different than it smells, fairly sweet, a bit fruity and a hint tart. Undercarbonated.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy straw hued with fizzy with head that dissipates quickly to thin ring. Aroma is hay, yeast, barnyard, esters, citrus, acidic. Mouthfeel is nice and refreshing with moderately light body and high carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a slight tartness following and CO2 sharpness throughout the finish. Overall, this is a really nice brew from Ale Apothecary.

750ml bottle from Belmont Station.
A: Cloudy orange color with a half inch of firm white head. A slight glass stain for legs.
N: Lemon, grapefruit, straw, horse blanket, and ample oak. Candied oranges. Wine is pronounced with the vinous white grape, some melon and apricot. Esters. This is very inviting.

M: Full, well-carbonated, and smooth.
O: Iím going to load up on bottles of this. Really, really nice stuff. Bravo.
