Notes/Commercial Description:
When you brew as much as we do, sometimes we get tired of telling the yeast what to do. For Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale, we pitch the yeast cold, turn off the temperature control, and let the yeast do it's thing. To our delight, it spat out the sweet scent of juicy fruit wafting from a frothy, white mane. Brewed only with grain and sugar unencumbered by the heat of the kiln, we create a hazy, golden body. Apex Predator gets its teeth from a generous Crystal dry-hopping that completes the dry finish with a fruity bite. Pounce on the opportunity to let it part your lips and you may find yourself at the top of the food chain.

Bottle. Pours cloudy and pale yellow. The head is large and strong. It retains with stubbornness. Light scars of lacing. The aroma is very exciting. It smells funky and has a pronounced lemon character. Sourdough and grains and light Belgian yeast phenols. The flavor is interesting. The Belgian yeast character is noticeable but not overpowering, thankfully. The funk found in the nose is set to a similar intensity. Just a slight hint of sourness. Lemons and homemade cider. Hay and soft spice. All parts are balanced. Body is fairly light. Carbonation nearing soft. I enjoy this brewery's look, their style preferences and their product quality. Another nice Off Color beer.
