Brewed with our friend Brian Strumke, this project represents what we both hold sacred in artisanal beer production: quality, creativity, and patience. We fermented this blonde saison with a blend of Brettanomyces strains and then aged it in special Maine blueberry wine barrels.

Stillbow Oxtisanal, 6.5% Bottle, courtesy of the Oxbow owner, Tom Adams (?), thanks a lot mate!. Itís an unclear, orange colored beer with a dense, small, off-white to light beige colored head. The aroma has a lovely barrel touch, funky orange notes, hints of berries, a hint of lemon and leather, some pale malts and a generic fruity sweetness. Itís not sweet on the palate though, itís quite dry actually and lightly tart, with a high but nice level of carbonation and a medium to full body. Thereís a good dash of fresh orange in the flavor, a vague hint of blueberry and citrus peel, some grass and pale malts and also some tannins. Some lemon and a faint leathery, barnyardish touch as well. Lasting finish with orange and a touch of blueberries and barrel and funk. A really lovely beer, proving that a blend of orange and blueberry can be very nice, and with all the other flavors and aromas added it sure ends up as a wonderful beer. Easy drinkable, tasteful and refreshing. 150613

RasmusOtt (2324) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle thanks to bursprak. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of blueberry, mandarin, lemon zest and overall citrusy and juicy. Behind this there are some funky and more bretty notes. The taste is extremely funky with notes of grapefruit, dry wood, herbal notes, citrus fruits and weak cheese. Has a weak saison feeling to it. Barrel character is pretty subtle.

Vestergaard (1696) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle 50cl thanks to Bursprak! Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big, white, soapy head. Aroma has grape fruit, oak, tart blueberries, yeasty funk, brett, dirty, dusty hay and barn. Mandarin juice, citrus peel. Taste is very sparkling, citrussy fruity, funky, pretty acidic. Lots of grape fruit! Fairly high fruity bitterness as well. Blueberries are more present in the aroma. Oaky dry finish, but very juicy over all. Body is extremely sparkling and crisp. Gotta say that the barrel character is pretty subtle.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle... Pours hazy and straw-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The nose delivers notes of funky old cheese, fallen oak, lemon and sourdough. Light to medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. Tart and bitter - apricot and citric acidity up front; tangy-sweet plum and a modest measure of crusty bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, tongue-numbing finale.

Bottle - thanks jbportland! Just a bit of a gusher on opening. Pours hazy golden yellow with a large white head that dissipates slowly leaving solid lacing. Aroma is really vinous, oaky, lots of Bretty funk. Flavor follows, dry with light plus tartness, lots of Brett, and the good kind. Medium light body, high carbonation. Excellent.
