adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. No date but the bottle has a tag on it like its from another store. Not sure if this is old product like the other Stillwater stuff distributed to Foco on their initial arrival. A bit of a gusher. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy, orange fruity, somewhat funky, light white wine aroma. Tangy, somewhat strong, toasted malty, orange/tangerine fruity, spicy flavor. Pretty good.

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Lightly hazed soft peach-colored body with a fine-bubbled off-white head. Sweetish malt-forward nose is strongly perfumy and floral and I would take a wild guess about some sort of spice or flower added as a flavoring but whatever spice character there is seems to bleed over into that green / mold territory and seemingly oxidized malt as well. There’s a ton of fruit, vegetable, gum and candy smells: strong lychee, sweet red apple, candied radish, rotting fruit cocktail and finally some sort of hair product or salon smell. Soft, natural carbonation. Medium-full body. The soft nature of the low carbonation is broken and snapped by an abrupt interruption (seemingly) of alcohol (fusels indicating either warmer temps than needed or an unclean yeast strain), overwhelming bitterness and what seems like sharp oak tannin. Can’t find any mention of oak online but there’s little information about recipe. They seemed to have tried a traditional method and since it was at Saint Germain I assume it went through with their watchful eyes, so I don’t know what to say other than I’d like it a little cleaner, but I understand the rustic character that bière de garde producers go for. Still a fun one, though I can’t get past the decomposing fruit cocktail profile.

Steve_0 (3031) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle at my grandparents. Pour is clear orang with a small white head and decent lacin. Funky, grassy, lightly spicy, musty, somewhat weedy, lightly citrusy, skunky, and floral aroma. Taste is malty, caramelly, huge skunk, pepper, grass, weed, and lightly vegetal. Light body with high carbonation. Not a very good beer.

JStax (3395) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2013
33cl bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy white head of foam. Really good retention. The aroma is dully and lifeless. I get some saltless crackers and bread. The taste leads to an orange zest and grapefruit pith bitterness with very little actual fruit taste. Very dry finish.

Suttree (5339) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Murky brownish orange. Big frothy brown head. Sweet, floral, fruity aroma. I get a lot of fruity notes in the flavor, too, maybe some rosewater, and finishes with a peppery, woody note.

RexTalionis (2856) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber in color with a whitish head. Sweet malty notes, a bit of fruity citrus and peppery spicyness in aroma. Dry and malty mouthfeel. A bit of dough, herbal notes and notes of grassy bitterness in taste. Dry, but yet quite fruity and sweet finish.
