BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Off Color Brewing
Illinois, United States
offcolorbrewing.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This is the quintessential Saison. Beautiful cloudy straw yellow in color. Wonderful sweet & citrus aroma. The taste is light and fruity. It has a little hoppiness and carbonation. Overall a wonderful beer especially on hot summer day
