4.68/5 rDev +7.3%
Bottled June 27 '14, split with BA OKComputer. Poured into tall wine glasses. Poured a cloudy yellow color withe a moderate amount of white head that low-moderate retention and low lacing.
The aroma aroma and flavors were were just fantastic, some grain base, some yeast spice, a bit of fruit, a pleasant sourness, and a very dry finish. Drinkability was excellent, next time, I might just keep the whole bottle for myself ;). Overall, a beer that I have a hard time describing, just try it yourself. After I get more.

Thanks to Damon for this bottle.
A - Poured a hazy bright yellow colour; almost opaque. One finger of white head formed on the pour and quickly receded to a thin layer on the top of the beer.
S - Oak and a sour presence show up initially with some grape, citrus, lemon and bready notes also present.
T - Tart, bordering on sour. some fresh citrus and lemon notes show up initially, giving way to a vinous grape presence and toasted oak. A bready malt backbone provides some contrasting sweetness and a mild bitterness from the hopping shows up in the finish. A very complex beer.
M - Medium body. Dry with moderate carbonation.

The beer pours a dull golden yellow with some sediment and is topped by a generous and foamy white head that coats the inside of the glass. The nose is similar to latache - some house funk, a little grain sweetness, more yeast, and lime zest. The taste is very similar to the nose with semi-sweet cracked grain, a big yeast presence, wood, some tart citrus, and a lingering funk. It's a medium bodied, foamy, funky, grainy saison with a great citrusy, hoppy bitterness, and a complex, semi-dry, slightly boozy finish. This beer is absolutely fantastic and totally worth trying, would definitely recommend.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Light golden yellow. Very hazy. Nice white head.
Smell - Lots of white wine, funk, and oak. Mild acidity. Grainy malt aroma with some lemon and citrus.
Taste - White wine flavors prominent again. Much more sour than the nose implied. Lemon, lactic sourness. The sweetness from pale malt builds and covers the sourness. Herbal flavors linger in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Sweet and sour in the same sip. Medium heavy body.
Overall - I had to have this (and all Ale Apothecary beers) a few times to really appreciate it. They are all very complex beers that don't fit into standard molds.

I'm giving this full marks for appearance because not only is the beer itself a great, bright mineral tangerine, but the bottle is beautiful too. The twine-tied cork is distinctive and nifty.
Great lemon-driven citrus along with a touch of honey sweetness. Great acidity - not puckering but nearly. Apricot and peach fruitiness. Oak depth throughout. Slight grassiness as well.
I would say this was worth the rather exorbitant price-tag, great stuff.

Reviewed from notes: 750ml bottle into snifter. Thanks Mike!
A: Pours a lemony yellow with a bubbly white head that faded into a fuzzy softy film that left spots of soapy lace down the glass.
S: Funky, creamy, and fruity with notes of peach, apricot, and other stone fruits. Mellow funk.
T: Sour notes of funky stone fruits and golden fruits. Slight bitternes. Light flavors.
M: Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation.
O: Tasty and easy to drink. Thanks again Mike.
