4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I picked up this bottle from Bruisin’ Ales while visiting Asheville, NC. The pour is a golden color with a thick off-white head. Great head retention leaves scattered lacing on the glass. This has a funky bretty aroma; lots of vibrant floral notes here. Citrus, grass, white grape, and a little wood round out a really nice scent. The flavors are a bit tart, very dry, and clean. I just love how this drinks. There’s a little oak in there with a white wine character, funky brett, dust, lemon, and grass. It just glides along so well leading to a bone-dry finish that has me anxiously awaiting the next sip. I had to (somewhat unsuccessfully) guard against drinking this one too quickly. It’s just so thirst quenching, clean, and tasty. Stillwater continues to impress. I can’t think of a single thing wrong with this beer. This is even better than the Premium I had recently and that one was world class.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pajiza, amarillenta, bastante turbia y con buena espuma. Aroma cítrico y algo lácteo. En boca refrescante ante todo. Sabor sin duda asidrado, pero no desagradable del todo, porque se equilibra con tonos cítricos y yerbales (pino). Tono bastante seco, sobre todo al final. Conjunto difícil pero si le coges el truquillo no está mal. En cualquier caso, no vale lo que cuesta.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle, thanks for sharing, Guerde!] Pours cloudy golden with a rocky head which quickly fades. Aroma is ginger and carrot, leather, funkiness, and citrus (lime?). Taste is carrot, a surprising amount of bitterness, and funkiness again. Smooth, medium-thin, with a decent length finish. Overall, a really enjoyable beer that I would love to have available in reasonably priced 6 packs during the summer.
