Big thank you to Steasy66 for this!!

Appearance. Pours a hazy straw-gold with a finger of white head.

Smell. Floral and funky, sweet hay, light fresh wood, light apples and pears. Very nice.

Taste. Light fruits, apples and peaches, medium-light in the sour dept., some fresh wood, lightly floral, light funk. Again, very nice and no alcohol to be found.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body (a little light), medium-strong carbonation (a little strong).

Overall. Fantastic stuff. Like a sour saison. This brewer really knows his shit. Thanks again Ryan!!!

Bottle shared by Todd. Thanks! Served in a plastic cup.

A - White foam settles to a solid cap and splotchy lacework. Hazy orange body.

S - Big brett aroma, with loads of tropical funk to it. Notes of lemon, perfume, stone fruits, vinous oak; very saison-esque.

T - The taste is quite similar, but with even more brett character. Dusty, with a slightly medicinal note, but otherwise there are hefty doses of tropical and stone fruits, and a vinous oak character in the finish.

M - Medium-full body, pleasant carbonation, soft texture, and a dry finish. Alcohol is immaculately concealed.

D - Great stuff! Would love to drink this again. Really impressed with Ale Apothecary so far. Could imagine working through a 750ml bottle over the course of an evening.
