BEER INFO

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.

For a saison, there are tons of hops on the aroma and taste, but mixed in with all the dry yeast it ends up tasting like a very stale IPA. Just some flat citrus and musty yeast. Bad representation ofthe style and overall a bad beer.
