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. It’s like a big Saison but still delicate enough. Stillwater is not just a good brewery, they are a great one.

Robe blonde trouble quelconque. Fin col de mousse tenace. Arômes de levures belges, pain, phénols de fermentation rappelant les clous de girofle, orange, pamplemousse, zeste de citron et alcool. Semble lourde et complexe. Me fait penser à une tripel. En bouche, la première gorgée déverse un flot d’alcool quasi insupportable sur le palais. Au moins, ça s’améliore par la suite. Plus fruitée, orange et pamplemousse entremelé de clou de girofle. Bonne amertume, un peu épicé. Finale de pain, pelure de banane, orange et alcool. Complexité pas aussi relevé que je le prévoyais. Texture moyenne, corps assez rond. Température recommandée de 10-12°.

leghorn99 (128) - Livorno, ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
Nel bicchiere è arancio pallido, velato, ed ha un bel cappello di bianca schiuma, cremosa e compatta, dalla buona persistenza. Al naso c’è una pacifica convivenza di sentori aspri di frutta acerba e di scorza d’agrumi (lime e limone) con quelli dolci dei canditi e del miele; in sottofondo una leggera speziatura (coriandolo). In bocca si sente subito la mancanza di un po’ di bollicine a dare un po’ di vivacità; ne guadagna la morbidezza, non la piacevolezza, e la birra dal corpo medio scorre piuttosto agevolmente. Biscotto, miele e sopratutto canditi (agrumi) sono la spina dorsale del gusto che viene arricchito dalla pesca sciroppata e dall’albicocca; una bella attenuazione riesce poi a contrastare la dolcezza della bevuta, che termina con una timida nota amara di scorza d’agrumi. Il retrogusto è di nuovo dolce di frutta sciroppata, riscaldato da un lieve alcool warming.

Poured from the 4-pack of bottles (says bottled 12/13/13) nice orangy gold, smells clean which is odd for a Belgian. Get the sweet up front and the dry at the end. This beer has everything I like about Belgian strong without the ass taste that I don’t, but usually get. Very well done and strong.

The beer pours a hazy golden with a medium white head, and the aroma blends citrus hops with light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly umami, and slightly sweet with a strong hop flavor in addition to their bitterness. The aftertaste is a long-lasting version of the initial flavor. The texture is nearly oily, but the bubbly carbonation and light body help balance all the other elements into a very pleasant package.
