COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale, we pitch the yeast cold, turn off the temperature control, and let the yeast do it’s thing. To our delight, it spat out the sweet scent of juicy fruit wafting from a frothy, white mane. Brewed only with grain and sugar unencumbered by the heat of the kiln, we create a hazy, golden body. Apex Predator gets its teeth from a generous Crystal dry-hopping that completes the dry finish with a fruity bite. Pounce on the opportunity to let it part your lips and you may find yourself at the top of the food chain.

italianjohn (3257) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2017
Pale golden pour with a thin white head and light lacing ... aroma of lemon, funk, fruity yeast, grassy hops and caramel malts .... taste is of lemon/citrusy, little zesty but funky, fruity yeast, spicy bite little peppery with a juicy fruit flavor, grassy hops and caramel malts ... finish is dry, bitter and with lingering lemon and fruity yeast .... Decent and sessionable little on the sugary side

JoeMcPhee (9553) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2017
Pale straw colour. Hazy with a thick white head. The aroma is quite spicy and fruity. Has a bit of bright lemon, zesty hoppiness and a really flinty, spicy finish. Dry and crackery with a nice grassiness on the back. There's a bit of bright zestiness and a spiciness on the back. Really well-integrated and tasty.

Draft at uncommonground. To the point. No frills, just saison. I expected this to be more tart. White pepper nose. Solid.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 12 oz. bottle pours a hazy straw color with modest creamy white head. Aroma has lots of yeast plus lemon, wheat, light pepper and a touch of barnyard. Taste is slightly sweet with a long dry finish. Body is medium with lively carbonation. I'll be back for more.

Good beer, astounding taste. Chicago born, its a better product of the city than Michael Jordan himself. Maybe not, that dude is a legend. But it is damn awesome and I prefer it over any craft from Grand Rapids itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

02.05.2014, tap @ CBC:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish fruity, grapefruit, tangerine, citrus peel, rhubarb, unripe berries, hay, grass, sorrel, lemon. Taste is slightly sweet grassy, flowers, yeast, sugar, hay, banana, grain, oak, citrus peel. Medium bitterness, very dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods Roosevelt. Light yellow pour, nice head.

Tasty saison. Juicy, over-ripe peach. Long-lasting bit form the relatively amped-up hops. Surprised its only 25 IBU. This would be worth repeating.

Really enjoyable. Funk, tart, balance, along with a bit of citrus and a fine dry finish. Unusual but very drinkable.
