Apex Predator Farmhouse Ale

Tasting Notes

Apex Predator’s saison yeast expresses explosive juicy fruit and pineapple aromas meshing with lemon grass hop profile ending with a pleasantly dry finish. 6.5% alc/vol

Secret Techniques

American-Belgian hybrid style combines free rise fermentation with a traditional Belgian saison yeast and a hefty, American style dry hopping. The heat produced during fermentation (typically removed by the fermenter’s cooling jackets) warms up the fermenting beer and enhances the fruity ester profile. After fermentation is completed, we add a generous dose of Crystal hops to the cooled beer for a shorter period of time to extract all the finer hop oils.

Ingredients

Pilsner malt, flaked wheat, honey malt, sugar, crystal and sterling hops, saison yeast
