4/5 rDev +1.5%
Personal notes: After trying "Fierce" by Off Color today, and going back and forth between a 3.75 and 4 I look back on "Apex Predator," a beer I need to revisit but have a endearing memory of, as rating a 3.75 and it just seems that the rating for this beer should not be the lower of the two and so I'm bumping this up to a 4. i shall revisit this one and update then. For some reason when I rate out of five I seem to end up rating lower. 4/5 just seems better than 80 out of 100 or 8 out of 10...but i digress.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip,
Appearance: Pours a hazy bright gold. Carbonation is heavy. Nice 1.5-finger white head that hangs around a bit. Slightly more than minimal lacing.
Aroma: Smells of spices, lemon, some citrus, zest, and some dry hops.
Taste: Really nice dry flavor with some spices and lemon mixed in. Very appealing saison. Little more alcoholic kick than some of its peers.
Mouthfeel: Just right for a saison. Well balanced.
Overall: I don't know much about this brewery or Midwestern craft beer in general, but this beer is a real hit. I like the funky bottle design, too. Will recommend to saison fans.

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.
