BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very hazy, nearly milky golden hued body with a massive head, great lace and very sound retention. Aromas are spicy, dried pineapple, alcohol, sticky, dry esters, thistle, stone fruit, hoppy. Lots of CO2 in the nose. Flavors are dry, white wine, medium bitter, herbal, hoppy, thistle, grainy, woody, rustic, earthy and bone dry. Some floral and tropical fruit hop character. Dry and very drinkable despite the ABV. Low citrus, but quite lemony as it warms. Lingering peppery phenol. Very lively bubbles, dry, low bodied, warming. Fusel alcohols become stronger as it warms.

Cloudy medium yellow pour, two solid fingers of nice white head. Nose is honeydew and yeast. Bitter. Middle is creamy roasted grain (oats?), hint of spice, crisp pear. Finish is dry and refreshing. You do feel the ABV in this one.

MetalNHopHead (1207) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 14, 2016
We get it, Stillwater. You’re really good at making Belgian Ales, okay? Of course, I’m just as guilty. You keep makin’ ’em, I keep drinkin’ ’em. As Follows is predictably good. It pours golden and heady. Fruity, champagne-like yeast esters, earthy funk, malty bread, and herbal hops. Flavor carries them all forward. The combined flavors of funk, earth, and subtly sweet malt, plus the lively carbonation make for a brilliant cheese pairing. Especially if you like your cheese on the briny, funky side. A little strong for warm weather, but As Follows does about everything a good Belgian should.

UXO (1299) - CANADA - FEB 7, 2016
Appearance: clear pale gold with one fat finger of rocky head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dry hay funk, lemon zest, stone fruit, vinous oak. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, dry crisp and lightly tart finish. (4/5) Another very nice beer from Stillwater. Although they call it a "Belgian Style Golden," it’s got lots of saison-like notes, dominated by a dry barnyardy Brett funk. Easy drinking, impressively crisp and light given the relatively high ABV. (16/20)

MNAle (110) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Stamped 274:15 11:41, reviewed on 1/29-30. Aroma is fruity, perhaps banana, bready yeast, grass. Color light straw, slightly hazy, vigorous carbonation, tall, white bubbly head. Moderate feel. Mild and fruity taste, banana, almost hefe-like taste which tansitions to a very slightly bitter finish. There is no booziness to this; the alcohol is well hidden. To say this is not what I was expecting is an understatement. Maybe I’m just used to English style of strong ales. To my preferences, this beer is too soft fruity and saccharine. I won’t be buying it again.
