375mL bottle, pours a hazy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of honey, some farmhouse notes, and light spices. Flavour brings out spicy hops, farmhouse notes, and an earthy quality. Well-constructed, with a spicy finish. Decent, though not overly complex.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2014
The hazy yellow color of a hot summer dawn breaking across the horizon. Lovely green hops, mint and the aroma of country fields cooling off after a hot summer day. The body evokes fresh cut grass and the countryside. Touches of breadiness and subdued yeast. A quenching, complex, yet familiar, journey recapturing summers past, all wrapped finely into a pint.

Crazy effervescent which makes this beer very exciting. Very peppery in the nose but with a maraschino cherry aroma hiding subtly in the background. On the palate the tiny bubbles deliver a sharp flavor of peppery hop bitterness in a really nice way. The finish swoops quickly through sweetish cherry to finish with bitter hops.

Bottle from Chuck’s.

Pours hazy gold with a pillowy white head into my tulip glass. The first thing that strikes me about the aroma is how bready it is; second, beneath that a mineral thing that recalls (but is not as intense as) Avril. Third, fresh-cut pineapple.

The flavor follows the aroma fairly closely, but with a late woody bitterness that comes on more strongly than expected from either aroma or style. Not a whole lot of funk here, so why is this so distinctly farmhouse? Speaking figuratively, there’s a barnyard dust to the early flavor profile -- killed, as it happens, in the over-hopped close. Less figuratively, the yeast-driven esters scream saison and leave the senses tingling with appreciation. Relatively lively carbonation matches well enough to the whole package that it’s relatively inconspicuous and I don’t see how it could be substantively improved.

Overall, a characteristically Stillwater beer, which I mean mostly as a complement. This is one where 750 ml was all too easy to drink and left me wishing for more; another complement. "Cantalan" a pun on Catalonian Cantillon? Or just a screwup? Either way, This is no ’loon.

tl;dr summary: Hop-heavy American farmhouse that would be a knockout at a sub-$10 price point. If only.
