Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Mild fruity aroma. Starts malty, spicy, notes of some herbs, mild sweetish. Finish more dry, a bit yeasty. Fruity like peach. Okay.

large white frothy head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. dark yellow thick hazy body. aroma: moderate hoppy, citrur orange, coriander, sage. if: moderate sweet (honey, fruity). ff: light sweet acidic and bitter, plus salty; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and light astringent finish. bem condimentada (lembra manjericão, sálvia e coentro). bem diferenciada do estilo, com alguma acidez de limão, mas com ligeiro amargor e bem mais temperada. sente-se um pouco de álcool no final. uma das mais complexas representantes do estilo já degustadas por mim. 130s

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Nice aroma of sage and citrus. Nearly clear medium amber with a solid 1/2" white head, streaky lace. Good looking. Taste is unique and cleansing - wheat and malt are present, but so are herbs and earthy, dry-grass sage. It all moves smoothly to a lingering finish that is mostly earth and dry-grass bittering that is somehow appealing. It isn’t exactly a Witbier, but it is original, and it is very good.

""touch" of white sage my butt! that was the dominating factor in the aroma and flavor. quite pleasant, but a surprisingly one-trick pony. on tap, so i was saved from another gusher. nice medium-full mouthfeel, even with the prickly carbonation. a little yeast and sweetness in the background, but this beer showcased the sage without being as funky or saison-like as the other Stillwater brews I’ve had. 7/12 - hops (good) + carbonation (bad) come through more in the bottle. More complex in aroma and flavor, but the feel suffers, too gassy."

I really liked this; light and fruity with more of a saison flavor than a Belgian wit but bubbly and refreshing. Really good.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a slightly hazy light straw colored body.
The aroma has a lot of fresh ground black pepper, a little sage and earth.
The taste is peppery, mild grain and lemon bitterness.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
An improvement on the standard wit beer.
