changeup45 (1729) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Excited to try another new (for me) offering from Stillwater. This pours a murky orange-gold color with a thick fluffy white head. The aroma shows an array of exotic citrus fruits such as; kiwi, tangerine, and melon, with grass, hay, and a lavender-like herbal scent. The aroma suggests a somewhat sticky sweet flavor profile so I was happy to find that balanced by a rather dry finish with some ample hop and peppery bitterness. Up front there is sweet citrus fruity notes and a sticky honey character, along with some herbal straw notes. The alcohol is apparent in the sweetness up front and a thickish body. But overall I must say this is very drinkable, refreshing, and tasty stuff. Itís like a big Saison but still delicate enough. Stillwater is not just a good brewery, they are a great one.

ttoadee (1158) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2016
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.

We get it, Stillwater. Youíre really good at making Belgian Ales, okay? Of course, Iím just as guilty. You keep makiní íem, I keep drinkiní íem. 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 (1252) - 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," itís 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 (106) - 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 Iím just used to English style of strong ales. To my preferences, this beer is too soft fruity and saccharine. I wonít be buying it again.
