I wouldnít have rated this beer as highly the first time I purchased it, but I find myself going back to buy it over and over again. I think this alone is telling of the beers perfection, as I brew Belgian ales myself quite often so Iím very critical of them. Others have described the flavor as somewhat peppery, which I try to avoid as Iím inherently put off by pepper flavor in beer... but, in this case itís magnificently blended with a sweet, rich floral overtone and smooth, light body despite the 9% abv punch it hides. There is a delicate noble hop bitterness which accentuates the full body and buttery mouth-feel, which brings this ale to the top of the pack with itís superb drinkability.

Reminds me a lot of Saison Dupont with more orange character. Bursting with fruity armona, dull-orange in color, Creamy, highly-carbonated body, with spicy, orange flavor. Nice dry finish.

I am particularly enjoying this brew. It has a good character, not an overpowering alcohol taste, but really nice aroma to the palate. I am enjoying this 2013 beer in December 2013, so it has aged in the bottle.

One of the dryest belgian ales I can recall, which distinguishes this from many in the style. Wonderful fruity bouquet. Lemon, yeasty. Finishes slightly tart. What a treat. Stillwater really impresses me and excel in the belgian style.

Good smooth pale with some balls. Drank this beer and suddenly I had wings. Not the wimpy wings you get from red bull. Wings of a Eagle crossed with a blue whale.

Bottle. Pours a hazy hay with a big, big head. Had to pour slowly, let it sit, then pour some more. Big pineapple aroma with a slight bit of yeast and a bit of an alcohol whiff. Taste is pineapple, piney hops, banana, yeast...and it all blends together beautifully.The alcohol burn doesnít come through until everything else has started to fade on the palate, which takes awhile.

Pours cloudy light golden with a thin wispy white head. Notes of resinous hops, citrus, pine, pear, peach, alcohol and pepper. Full bodied, resinous and alcoholic with lush carbonation.

Pours hazy with the bright color of lemons and some aroma of lemon zest. Plenty of complex flavor from hops and yeast with a hint of honeyed sweetness on the palate but more in the aroma. This beer is fantastically balanced, complex, and appealing.

Dry hopped cask at Maxís. Murky gold, thin white ring with oily lacing. Tons of hay, soap, resinous dank hop, light ester, heavy pineapple citrus. Flavor is so dank its sweet at front, considerable honey crust and dough through mid, pine finish. Oily body, coats mouth leaving resinous end.
