3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the De Molen second Tuesday tasting. Poured a cloudy straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is weak dry and malty. The flavour is bitter and spicy with fruity notes, but that was all up front and the aftertaste was quite weak and watery. Not a favourite.

Bottle. Cork released with loud bang and a small gusher. Pours eventually a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, wheat and some lemon. Flavor is medium bitter, zest and lemon. Nothing too special here, yet a decent brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
C&C bottle. Poured just about clear bright golden with a dense, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up bright lemon zest, cloves, other white spices, and some floral notes over interesting herbal grains (spelt?) and lesser bready malts.. bright, fresh, and interesting. The flavor found similar stuff.. tangy lemon, white pepper, cloves, and again a bit of floral character over bread, biscuit, and toasted pale malts.. herbs, lemon zest, and slight tangy metallic notes on the engaging finish. Medium-bodied with big carbonation on the palate.. filling.. this felt good the whole way through.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer appears a hazy straw yellow hue with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma offers floral notes, pepper, yeast, grass. An abundance of cracked pepper in the flavor, along with some earth notes and a yeast presence. The beer is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this was decent, but not among my favorite offerings from Stillwater.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of rustic malt with some fresh cut hay and some light funky ester. Taste is a wonderful mix between some rustic malt notes with nice dry floral notes with fresh-cut hay and light funky notes. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Perfect mix between complexity and drinkability.

Sour ale-like which was thin and fairly funky.... another belgian to steer clear of. Not recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very very very big vast white head, changes slowly into a medium sized airy white head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer.
Smell wheat, yeast, hops, citrus, hint of orange, sharper tones like sharper grains and sharper plant ish tones, hint of resin and (sharper) herbs.
Taste is smoother than expected with a mix of yeast, hops, citrus, lemon, dough, light bitter, floral, herbs, light sharp and something light wood ish. Not complex but still pretty deep. The bitterness tends to go to the bit more nasty side, but doesn’t get there.
Aftertaste yeast, grass, citrus hoppy and herby.
Low carbo, soft and lightly blown mouthfeel, good medium body and a light creamy texture.
Decent beer, yeasty but decent yeasty.
