4.5/5 rDev +14.2%
Pours a hazy orange with decent sized white head. Nice lacing.
Pear and apple in the aroma. A hint of clove and pepper. Extremely aromatic. Citrus fruits and grassy spicy hops. Orange marmelade. Spicy alcohol.
Very spicy and almost tangy on the palette. Where the aroma was quite sweet and fruity, the flavor is much more dry and spicy. Citrus fruits come back in the background along with cracker-like pilsner malt. Honey on the finish. Spicy hops add a firm bitterness.
Heavily carbonated which adds to the dry and tangy character. Flaked wheat seems to add softness to the palette.
Complex, balanced, and drinkable. This is definitely a contender for one of the best American made saisons I've had.

Apex Predator pours a beautiful light golden straw color. At least 2 fingers of head that sticks around for quite a while and does not dissipate. The nose is excellent, huge scent of pineapple, grapefruit skins, ruby red grapefruit inners, a little bit of that body odor quality. It's all done with a very subtle hand too. The taste is just a nice wash of these fruits down the gullet. It's subtle but still noticeable what they are doing with this beer, the flavors don't punch you in the face but it's like a nice tropical blend that meets a Belgian style saison.
Was pretty impressed with this one, one of the most flavorful, yet even handed saison I have ever tried.
