3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle.
Rated on 20110618.
Pours clear golden color with a huge, lasting head. Aroma of soap and citrus. Mild citra hops add up the aroma nicely. Flavor of spices, especially pepper, mild fruits, apricot. Strong carbonation, a bit too strong perhaps. Quite crisp and refreshing brew but the high carbonation and tangy spices don’t quite fit.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another 750 ml bottle courtesy of my friend Kenny. I knew I was in trouble when I opened the bottle and foam gushed out of the bottle and all over my counter. This is one of those beers that is just a total pain in the ass to pour; all foam and no beer. There doesn’t appear to be any infection with this beer, it is just super carbonated. What finally does eventually settle in my glass is a hazy gold with a f*cking massive head that keep growing and overflowing my glass. Pleasant aroma of spice, orange and a bit of sugar. The flavor is spicy with citrus and a bit of husky wheat. Prickly on the palate from the carbonation. I think I actually ended up drinking about half the contents of the bottle, the rest having been disgorged on to my counter and floor. Grrr.

750 ml bottle; pours hazy gold wig huge, vibrant white head fading slowly; funky lemon, fresh sage, dry oak and funky wheat; when fresher, these aromas certainly popped much more than when I had a second bottle 2 months late; drinks smooth aside from a slight white sage bite; grassy flowers, dry lemons, creamy, fresh wheat; sage definitely is there, but not too over the top; this is one of my favs from Stillwater so far

Refreshing aroma with spices, yeast, wheat, funk and lots of fruityness. Lively carbonated, dry with medium bitterness. Funky taste with spices, wheat, faint citrus-hoppy notes, fruit and herbs. Very nice beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light, transparent yellow-orange, with a mid-size off-white head. Orange peel, lemon, grass, and golden raisins on the nose. Nice, pungent aroma. A little overly effervescent, but nothing that can’t be swirled out. Flavor follows suit, emphasizing the grass and adding a delicate malt weight, a slight earthiness, and the sage note. Finishes dry, with hops finally making an appearance toward the end. This still isn’t my favorite style, but this is a very nice brew. Very delicate.

(750ml bottle) Pale, hazy orange-gold body, swirling with carbonation and an enormous white head the forms stiff white peaks. Aroma is sweet with floral and fruit notes; citrus (lemon, orange), spice, herbs, and a hint of grass/straw. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, a sticky mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet malt, citrus, spices, herbal notes, and lightly hoppy--basically a little of everything.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3oz taster at DBS. Aromas of wheat, sage and rosemary. Wheat flavor and light sage makes up the flavor with a good amount of carbonation. These beers are dry, yet smooth on the palate. Very good beer.

ight be one of my favorite Saisons ever. A perfect mix of ingredients and drinkability. Perfect for summer and sitting at an almost sessionable 6.60% abv. Great mixture of spices, lemon, grass, citrus, and a tad bit of funk. Love this beer.
