Notes/Commercial Description:
Sahalie is the flagship brand of The Ale Apothecary, brewed year-round of malted barley & wheat and Goschie Farms Cascade Hops. Hop bitterness and acid produced by our house lactobacillus culture provide the balance to the malt and oak structure of the beer. She spends up to 1 year in our oak barrels during a long, relaxed fermentation prior to a month-long dry-hopping (yes, in oak barrels!). 
Our sensory experience is a tropical & citrus fruit nose of apricots, pineapple, and orange produced from yeast esters and hop oils. The palate is tart and pithy, combining earthy and herbal undertones that evolve as the beer warms & opens up within your glass.

This beer is a legendary, unique, innovative brew that rivals all beers in the respective category. The beer has a fantastic mouthfeel that finishes dry showing the wine barrel aging. The earthy aroma and a taste truly satisfies, it makes for a true 5/5 brew. The beer has a tart, sour, bitter, hoppy, citrus twist that is so unique and intriguing I find myself salivating at the thought of more. This cabin in the woods brewery, in my opinion presents a new category of beer style as it's so unique. If you have the chance to acquire this monster of a brew do it! the price is steep but the reward is well worth the cost.

Bottom Line: Legendary brew!
