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, it’s dry, lemony, apricot, and very saison-like in nature. Flavor has a lot of similarties to the nose, it’s not as dry or tart, it’s 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. I’v 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 you’re not careful. Definitely looking forward to what’s to come from Ale Apothecary in the coming months/years.

mathieuc (1663) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
(Was disturbed during our tasting, will have to re-rate! ;) Pours a hazy yellow with a good white head that leave superior lacing. Aroma of fruits (yellow), hops, brett. Taste is sweet with a good balancing tartness, feeling juicy. Carbonation was good, I believe I downed my glass quite fast (to catch up with the others). Really good altough I’m sure I didn’t enjoy all the subtleties.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours clear blonde with a transient off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a mellow fruity light malt flavor with a dry wine finish. Refreshing and tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (4002) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle, thanks Jack for sharing. This was quite tasty. Reminded me of Hill Farmstead Ann and Tired Hands HandFarm—both wine barrel aged saison/sours. Lots of funk- pineapple, cotton candy, light stone fruit in the nose with a good dose of vinous white wine barrel. Flavor follows suit with a strong barrel finish. Great beer with booze well hidden.
