TURDFERGUSON (4046) - 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 I’ve had to date.

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 i’ve tried.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2011
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.

cheap (5309) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2011
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!

750 thanks to James. Big orange beer with lots of zest and orange. Pours big carbonation. Low ABV and sesionable. Slight funk overall from brett.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle thanks to Sarah. Pours a hazy light yellowish orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a notes of sage with a good amount of funk, earthy grains and just a bit of backing dry wine. Flavor begins a light wine note and sweet grains but finishes with light funk and sage. Also a bit dry in the finish.
