Tasted from large bottle at 2nd STL Ratebeer Gathering, thank you so much vyvvy for this rarity! Poured a light golden color with some haze and huge white foam, lasting with nice lace. Aromas of citrus, grains, fresh-cut grass, white sage and other ambiguous herbs, hardwood, composting leaves, horse-blanket. Flavors of mild malt, freshly-baked whole-grain bread, tannins, very spicy, tart to the point of sour, like sparkling lemonade. Profoundly yeasty and brett-y. Bottle was a gusher, spritzy carbonation persisted. Wheaty, well-rounded mouthfeel, Belgian "digestive" impression, layer and layers of complexity in aftertaste which eventually finished bone dry. It may have begun as a Belgian Wit, but it evolved into one of the greatest wild/sour ales Iíve tasted. Outrageously delicious. Definitely one of my favorites of the night, which is high praise considering all the top-shelf competition.

Bottle at Tripel rock in Berkeley. Golden pour. Citrus, stone fruits, pears, nectarines lead the flavors of this awesome beer. Sage of non aged. Erosion seems sort of lost here but this is very good

Bottle picked up at Whole Foods on P St NW in DC. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a clear moderate golden color with a thin white head and just a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings a bit of wine and oak plus a slight bit of sourness and stone fruits. The flavor is a bit tart with a bit of barrel character, followed by a smooth, clean finish. Light body and high carbonation with a dry, slightly-spicy finish. Really crisp and clean. Very good brew.

Hazy bright lemon rind yellow pour with two fingers of fizzy white head. Sage upfront in the nose, very herbal and spicy with some lemongrass and white peppery. Very dry and zesty.

750 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half frothy white head that stays around a while. Thereís also a small amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like oak, sage, peppery spice, tart apples, white grapes, and some orange peel. It tastes mostly herbal, with sage, peppery spice, white grapes/wine, oak, and a bit of wheat and orange peel all noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think this is a good brew, but I like the regular version of Cellar Door better.

Bottle kindly shared by TURDFERGUSON. Cheers, Sam. Huge white head. Nose shows lots of white sage, as well as honey and slight wood notes. Taste shows brett and Bosc pear, including pear skins. Champagne-like notes and a similarly fizzy palate. White sage seems a bit dominant at first, but better as it warms.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle I bought for take-away at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans a couple months ago. Golden with a small sudsy white head. Nose is sage, oak, brett, cotton candy, white pepper. Sage is more present when the beer is a bit cooler, but as it warms the brett shows itself more and a vinous red fruity character interplays with the brett and spices with a mild citrus note. Tasty stuff and worthy of a runon. The best Stillwater Iíve had to date.

Beerman6686 (4672) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
This poured a hazy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was spicey, brett and some vineous character. Flavor was light coriander and other spices, lots of brett and yeast, light tart lemons, and the red wine is there too. Very intersting like much of their other beers iíve tried.

Bottle opens with a huge BANG! and foams out to a slightly hazy orangey-yellow pour with 1 finger of rocky head, great retention, and visible streams of effervescence. Aroma is sage, pepper, orange peel, coriander, some brett, tons of vinuous notes. Taste is slightly bretty/funkysour, lime, orange, lemon, super herbal, passion fruit. Body is light, frothy, effervescent with a bone dry finish. Overall, this is phenomenal.

Had this at the 2011 Pittsburgh Ratebeer Christmas Eve Eve Tasting. Big thanks to MrChopin for bringing this. First I thought this would be another of his rudee beer presentations but I was glad to find out it was rather enjoyable. Slight tart aroma. Looks like a hefe with a big head which fades rapidly. Lots of good crisp co2 visible in this brew. First taste and each swig after leaves a big new head. Good cutting co2 on the palate too, makes this fun. A hint of tartness but its barely perceivable, not as indicated in the aroma. No real bitterness in this but certainly does not let you forget its a beer. Quite enjoyable! Kev, this beer ROCKS. The overall experience with this is much better than I was expecting!
