750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear straw with weak white foam. Tangy citrus nose with lemongrass, spice, candied ginger, anise, butterscotch, buttercream frosting on carrot cake, rum flambeed bananas. Geez. Taste is tangy, salty, doughy. Very soft and sweaty. I really like this. Soft, funky, quenching and complex. House yeast strain has a lot of potential. My rating: 4.1 Fiancé rating: 3.9 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is somewhat hazy golden with a white head that quickly dissipated. Funky, urine, fruity, pineapple, green apples, pears, woody, white wine, and lemon peel in the aroma. Taste is moderately tart, lemon, urine, horseblanket, somewhat doughy, pineapple, mango, white grapes, a touch of bread, and honey with a lightly sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Light, funky, easy-drinking, and tart, hard to believe its 10%+.

Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very lemon/lime forward and reminds me of the Barrel-Aged Flora Rustica that I drank a couple of weeks ago. Thereís also winey notes, oak, brettanomyces, yeast and light spices. Taste is also mainly of lemon/lime along with wine, oak, light vanilla, brettanomyces and light spices. Nice citric/acidic touch. Alcohol is very well hidden (our bottle said 11,03% abv). Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good lemon/lime forward golden ale. The wine barrel give this beer a couple layers of complexity. Really drinkable, especially considering the high abv. Itís my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and Iím really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

Bottle shared by thebitterendaz. Hazy yellow pour with light herbal and citrus aroma notes. Flavor starts out slightly tart with notes of wine barrel, lemon and pear, then gradually finish to a more funky, spiced finish. Really drinks like a 1/2 gueuze, 1/2 farmhouse beer. ABV is very well hidden - so crisp and easy drinking.

Bottle thanks to Diego. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong oak, wine, and yeast. Thick mouthfeel with fruit and light oak with nice dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.

boFNjackson (4025) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle... Poured hazy, somewhate of a pinkish/orange with a thin, lacy head. The nose was awesome here. Reminded me of cocktail bitters with the earthiness and spiciness. Tasted mildly tart with noticeable acidity. Some other funk and wine barrel tones. Mildly vinous, but the wine barrels didnt dominate and the beer could show its true colors. Fruits, floral and earthy spicing, and a little but of dryness towards the finish.

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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pour is slightly hazy orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of nice funk, brett, nice oak, chardonnay, hints of nice biscuit, bread, slight lemon notes, really nice. Taste is even better, nice biscuit, bread, lemon, nice funky, slight oak, chardonnay/white grape notes, finishing fairly funky, nice grass, hints of grapefruit. Very, very tasty.
