COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ape Snake is a dark, dry hopped farmhouse ale. We’ve taken our dark farmhouse base and dry hopped it with Falconer’s Flight and Centennial hops. The combination of yeast and hops create an explosion of flavors, and this beer will continue to develop as it ages. Check it out in 500ml bottles and on draft at your favorite restaurants and bars!

ardeo (637) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2018
B 50 cl. Noire à mousse beige persistante et belles dentelles. Nez frais, herbeux, fruits, Brett, houblons. Bouche surprenante, très différente du nez avec goûts un peu sucrés, du Brett, des fruits (framboise et citron), des houblons, quelques épices (gingembre?). Amertume moyenne, finale sèche, carbonatation moyenne. Very pleasant Saison (Saison ???)

Scrumpy369 (1002) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle shared at home with the crew. Black colour, small white lacing. Nose is brett, resin, even mote brett. Taste delivers much less sadly. Watery mouthfeel. Had high expectations didnt deliver sadly.

Very funky and almost minty with some kind of coolness. You do get some dry hop coming through as a bitter but grainy quality. Perhaps some hard boiled egg in there as well? A unique one, but trust me, it's good.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of funk, roasted malt, forest notes and wood. Flavor is sweet and funky with some caramel, roasted malt, herbs, chocolate and wood. Medium body, average carbonation.

Red wine, bretts, rather dry in flavor, rotten eggs, and a hint of caramel. Unique one!

jgb9348 (6654) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Deep, pitch black coloured body with a slightly clear glow towards the bottom, still about 95% opaque. All of that with a thick, five centimetre tall light brown head that tops the beer very nicely. Aroma of yeast, dry funk, grasses, floral and herbal notes and a big dose of tart fruits near the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal notes, all with a bitter malt backbone showing some earthy and dry malt flavours and finishing with a ton of yeast flavours. Aftertaste has quite a bit of dry and earthy flavours with a big grassy finish along with a bunch of musty, basement-y funk throughout and an elegant hop profile near the end that leaves no bitterness, but some mellow perfumey notes. Overall, quite a pungent and earthy black Saison with some good flavours, but a bit too one-sided and simplistic, especially from this brewery. Definitely not worth the premium price for this one and definitely not worth trying to find unless you love Black Saison's or can't find any other options. Again, I can't understand how reputation ratings go so highly, but people love certain labels on the front of their beers. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased on 01-October-2017 for US$8,49 at BeerTopia in Omaha, Nebraska, sampled in my hotel room here in Omaha, Nebraska on 04-October-2017.

jesperhammer (5051) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2017
01-MAR-2017, bottle @Morten, preparation for 3x50 :-) Black with a lasting, tan head. Aroma is saison with spice and yeast. Taste is more roasted but still saison-like. Slightly tart, dry. I am not a huge fan of these Black saisons.

VinegarStroke (453) - Napa, California, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Bottle: great head and very dense color. Aromatic yeasty profile with lots of hops. Very interesting. The palate isn’t as dark and toasty as expected. Slightly ashy finish. Another really solid Farmhouse from Prairie.
