750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes. Light golden yellow. Very hazy. Nice white head. Smell has lots of white wine, funk, and oak. Mild acidity. Grainy malt aroma with some lemon and citrus. White wine flavors prominent again in the taste. Much more sour than the nose implied. Lemon, lactic sourness. The sweetness from pale malt builds and covers the sourness. Herbal flavors linger in the finish. Medium carbonation. Sweet and sour in the same sip. Medium heavy body. I had to have this (and all Ale Apothecary beers) a few times to really appreciate it. They are all very complex beers that don’t fit into standard molds.

Beer5000 (5938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2016
750 ml bottle @ Bakgården Både &, Kristiansand. Unclear golden body with a small white head. Very pleasant and complex in aroma, fruity, mild acidic fruit, mild Brett, hint of wood, lemon and slightly vinous. Flavor is also complex and pleasant like aroma, fruity, acidic, vinous, wood, funk and bitterness – all extremely well balanced. Lots of flavors but nothing really dominates the others. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Expensive, but great.

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.

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.

750ml bottle pours a hazy gold with some frothy white head. Nose is herbal, tart, lavender, dusty, flower pollen, white grape, white peach, fresh squeezed orange juice. Flavor is really heavy with unripened peaches, kumquats, orange juice, lemon zest, herbal, lavender, white grape, light wood shaving. Lightly sweet, otherwise herbal finish. Very nice. Well crafted.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 6, 2013
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.
