falco242 (386) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Comes off sweet and a bit malty with a bit of a bitter type of finish. Tartness is there and the booze is hidden for the most part. Unique and fun and glad Im giving it a shot.

BuckeyeBoy (6544) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2016
750ml bottle thanks to rich. Pours out a hazy burnt orange topped with a small fizzy head. Nose is lots of barrel some lemon zest citrus notes and a light funky tartness. Taste is more of the barrels citrus zing and many more layers going on.

reebtogi (5929) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
750ml corked bottle (April 2016 Edition - 9.72%) pours a hazy orange brown color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is apples and citrus with some wine grapes and hints of brandy. Taste is a lemon tartness with a fruity and malty sweetness finishing quite sweet on the palate. Medium bodied with nice carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a fantastic brew that is unique and tasty and definitely recommended for a wonderful tasting experience.

A bottle on the Ale Apothecary beers tasting at Firefly on Cambie. Tasted with Brian. Bottled 07-Apr-2016. Pours a clear copper with a tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet, funky, fermented fruits, nail polish notes, plums. Taste is the same character. Good stuff.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2016
A weird surprisingly sweet sour ale, with nice malty characters reminiscent of, like,a flemish red or oud bruin. Cool beer.

ctipping (1595) - Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2016
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled March 23, 2013. Originally reviewed 7/4/2013. Slight haze to the orange body. Nice white head, with discrete bubbles. Settles to a collar and a few wisps. Fascinating aroma. Pale malt. Sweetness. A bit of oak. Some acids. Fruity apples and grape. Tastes of sour apple. Like a granny Smith. Sweet pale malts. Oak and light bitterness. Some yeasty esters. A hint of that brandy in the back. Booze lingers. Heavy and a bit sweet. Well carbonated. Always a fascinating beer from Ale Apothecary. No exception here. The Brandy barrel keeps this interesting, even if its subtle.
