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.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Fad: Orangegul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er umiskendelig saison men med en god del appelsin smidt oveni hatten. Smagen er igen domineret af appelsin hvilket er udmærket, men i længden bliver det en smule en dimensionelt. Udmærket øl.

Sampled at the Stillwater tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits last month. Pours a clear gold with a thick white head. Malty nose with herbal sage, some almost honey sweetness and crisp noble hops. Sweet malt flavor with hints of banana and sage before a crisp, clean finish.

750 ml bottle sent to me by suttree. Pour a is hazed golden, with a well formed two inch white head. Falls loosely with lacing. Aroma is bright lemon peel, some floral sage and white peppercorn. Taste is soft wheat maltiness, the sage floral herbal of the nose, and a hint of citrus - really clean finish. Palate is medium bodied, crisp mineral dry finish. Nice one, thanks Phil!

Poured into a tulip. Thanks to onedropsoup for this. 4.5 A: Lightly hazed light orange color. Three fingers of pillowy white head with very good retention and plenty of lacing too. 3.5 S: Plenty of herbalness in here and somewhat flowery. Cilantro, lemongrass, and basil come through. Lemony fruitiness. Almost overbearingly musky, but it needs a brett component to make it fit in. Hops are grassy and somewhat citrusy. Overall, really dry. There’s no doubt this is complex, it just doesn’t come together all that well. 3.0 T: Like the nose, this is super dry - dry even for a saison. The main flavor is a dusty muskiness. There’s some pepper spiciness and a touch of herbalness again, but no flavors even approach the musk. Lightly lemony. Not nearly as complex as the nose and not particularly tasty either. 3.0 M: Light body. Carbonation is a bit higher than desirable and a bit bity as well. Could definitely be creamier as well. 2.5 D: I don’t understand how the Stillwater saisons got hyped. This and Stateside are both pretty mediocre. Not really anything good about this other than the appearance. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-06-2011 21:53:19
