COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma sweet, herbal. Orange, tangerine, mint, sage. Yellow orange color, ok head and lace. Sweet herbal flavor. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, dry sweet finish, very tasty, easy to drink. Great mix on aroma. Strong on flavor, another winner from Stillwater.

It poured a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma was of light hops followed by yeast, herbs, grain and some spices. The flavor was of citrus fruit, hops, herbs, spices and a bitter tart finish.

jbeatty (1211) - New York, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle, 04/12/2012. Pours hazy golden orange, fluffy one-finger head, moderate lacing left over. Aroma thick with herbal spices, orange peel shavings, wheat and fresh saison yeastiness,some bright citrus hops peaking in, floral notes as well. Taste not as fruity, focused more on wheat and malts with lemony citrus overtones, a nice bitter earthiness with more spices. Sparkling palate, finishes dry and crisp. Complex and drinkable, well worth the try.

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Bottle. Translucent light gold with a thick creamy head that shows excellent retention and leaves lacy strands. Aroma is undeniably tangerine peel, with some sweet white grapes and soft slightly soapy perfume. Medium bodied but briskly carbonated with estery wheat playing off citrus and grassy herbs, with a mildly herbal bitterness in the finish; maybe a bit of white pepper too. A little too heavy to be quenching, but still quite refreshing and certainly interesting.

Gription79 (2653) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 8, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle.
Aroma: herbal, hints of citrus, malt graininess, spicy
Appearance: a nice golden beer with a dense white head that never disappears
Taste: earthy, herbal, slight citrus, malty, doughy/wheat
Palate: a little on the heavy side for my preference
Overall: a great Saison, this beer is probably better fresher, but I found it to be interesting and easy to drink.

Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Awesome dark color with a huge creamy head. taste was bready with malt and cloves. Nice carbination with a floral aftertaste. This beer had great complexity of flavors that mingled together to make an awesome beer for spring time.

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.

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
