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.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 Awesome...Fruity and funky. Citrus lemon. It’s good. I like it more as it lingers in the glass. it doesn’t scream it’s own name so that you’d remember it. ...on second thought. This is a good beer.

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.

Bebum (993) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Cloudy straw. Medium body, moderately flavored, silky texture, hot and well carbonated mouthfeel, average aftertaste, bitter finish. Crisp, bitter, dry. Fruity, hoppy, grassy, yeasty, Very refreshing thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bastarda (502) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2017
kindly shared by impuritylaw, thanks a lot; cute ironic label. Aromas of honey, herbs, wet meadow, a slight touch of farmyard dirtyness. Bit flat in taste but still nice: peppery esters, floral hops and some caramel malts. Mineral/earthy hints. Dry finish. Fizzy carbonation.

Scipio (1084) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2017
Pours a cloudy, dark, yellow with a thinner white head. The aroma is strong in wheat and spices, with lemon, yeast, and floral hops. The taste is dry and slightly tart. I find a lot going on in here, yet the impressions well balanced. Wheat, spices, floral and grassy hops, orange, pineapple, banana and yeast. The aftertaste is more mild, but it lingers for a long time. The banana and floral elements remain most potent at the end. Its light to medium in body, with a slick texture, and I’d say more of a lively carbonation. I liked this. I’ll buy this one more often.

Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Tap at Pour House. Hazy light gold color. White head. Big complex aroma. Lemon zest, fruit, pepper, slight funk, spicy hops. Flavor is lemon zest, grain, slight funk. Fruity finish. Light bitterness. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (17684) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2017
Hazy and blonde. Aroma has a nice spicy, wild, estery aroma. The palate is light, sweet and a bit dusty, with a herbal dryness as well. Decent...though on the palate it’s not as bright as on the nose.

drpimento (3640) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Appearance is a hazy yellow amber with an off white fine head that lasts a long time and some lace. Aroma is very pleasant with spice, Caramel malt, yeast. Flavor doesn’t quite remind me of the saison, similar perhaps But not quite. A little fruity sweet upfront with good effervescence. There’s also some weed like Hops in there, which is nice. Great body and finish for drinking.

3.5
EvanFriend (595) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Aroma is bright and lemony, flavor is heavily tropical fruit. Could stand to be dryer, and maybe not so much hops. Decent, but not great.
