my favorite in a Stillwater trio tasting. bright sage smell is really tantalizing. then the sage comes through even more with the beer. they could have amped up the citra more but as it is it has a nice lemony taste.

Very delicious sweet balance. Aroma is sweet, malty, a hint oranges and pepper. Medium nice carbonation, very light and dry mouthfeel with fine some creaminess. Flavour has lots of white pepper, sweet crisp malts, thyme, some roses.

Hazy orange color pour with a lasting foamy head. Lots of yeast and light fruit in the aroma, along with some caramel malt and a bit of grass. Flavor is grain, yeast, a bit of spice and some citrus on the finish. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Hazy amber pour with a tall, voluminous, fluffy white head. Semi-sweet aroma with herbal and grassy hops, zesty spice, powdery yeast notes, dried fruit, and strong wheat notes. Taste is grainy and mostly spicy with wheat, dried fruit, flowers, herbal notes, grassy hops, light candied fruit and powdery yeast. Body is light-medium and extremely effervescent. That carbonation at times is a nuisance. Ends with more spice and zest, dried fruit, herbal notes, sweet malt, wheat and big yeast notes. Mighty drinkable saison.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle on my way through that dreaded state of Ohio. Pours a hazy slightly dark straw yellow with a very thick white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of pale malt, grass, herbs, yeast, and slight resin. Flavor matches well, but fails to impress. Thought I might have found some Jolly Pumpkin competition, but they have a long way to get there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from K&L. Bright clear golden pour with a huge white head and thick lacing. Nice funky peppery aroma with hints of sweet malt. A little fruity. The flavor is not quite as good as the aroma, but still nice. Something floral, hibiscus or elderflower maybe (nah I have no clue) with pale malt, herbal notes, funk, and spice. A little off on the funkiness but still pretty tasty. Medium body with high carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. Not Stillwater’s best but still very solid.
