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.

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

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy straw color with modest creamy white head. Aroma has lots of yeast plus lemon, wheat, light peeper 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

Taste is slightly sweet grassy, flowers, yeast, sugar, hay, banana, grain, oak, citrus peel. Medium bitterness, very dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

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.

bastarda (506) - 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.

[8863-20161105] Tap. Mild wheatie straw citrus aroma. Hazy, light yellow orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Citrus bitter yeast and light fruit flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7

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.
