For Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale, we pitch the yeast cold, turn off the temperature control, and let the yeast do its 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.

Tap at The Cove in Baton Rouge. Smells of armpit. Really strong aroma. Fruity taste and smooth. Probably the best saison I ever had.

Scipio (1003) - 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 Id say more of a lively carbonation. I liked this. Ill buy this one more often.

Oakes (17132) - 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 its not as bright as on the nose.

drpimento (3528) - 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 doesnt quite remind me of the saison, similar perhaps But not quite. A little fruity sweet upfront with good effervescence. Theres also some weed like Hops in there, which is nice. Great body and finish for drinking.

EvanFriend (569) - 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.

Pours an orange yellow color. Very carbonated, took several attempts to pour the whole thing into my tulip. Very cloudy. Good initial head, some okay retention. Excellent lacing.

Aroma is wheaty. Yeasty. Coriander, bubble gum. Lemon, lemon peel.

Taste is lemon, lemon peel. Light coriander, light bitter hops. Some grassiness. Some banana. Maybe a touch of pear.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. A little creamy and smooth. Good carbonation really helps propel the flavors.

Overall, this is remarkably good. Id recommend it, and Id buy it again. Thats all.

onceblind (9162) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Hazy straw hue with a generous fluffy head. Big juicy NE IPA tones of guava and light grassy pineapple and a touch of clementine. Bright effervescent and lightly herbal flavor with guava and papaya juicy tones and a little flourish of grassy hops, and a semisweet smooth juicy finish. Light farmhouse graininess on the finish.
