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.

brokensail (10640) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
A: First pours are glasses completely full of foam. Eventually I’m able to get some beer and the hazed golden-orange color reveals itself. S: A lot of yeast on the nose, could have been kicked up due to the extremely active carbonation. Plenty of phenols like white pepper and the sage is very strong as well. Some floral notes, grass, and a slight mustiness. Just a bit of a cracker malt and wheat aroma. T: Sweet sage is quite evident, but still restrained enough to be a pleasant taste. Floral and fruit (pears and apples) notes go nicely with a slightly sweet malt flavor. The finish is nicely dry and crisp. M: Medium in body with a very high level of carbonation. D: A good beer, but nothing amazing. Their beers are all good, but nothing so great that I would really want to stock up.

A new brewery from my state of MD, nice! This is one of my more favorite saison’s, I hope to get it on draft in DC sometime.

obguthr (3653) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Pear and lemon nose, with a fair amount of funk. Opaque amber, medium head. Delightful citrus punch, orange and lime, funk at midpalate. Finishes with rosemary and lime zest. Moderate strength, not overstated. I’m 2 for 2 with Stillwater and have yet to be disappointed. Outstanding brewer!

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2011
This beer was a great introduction to Stillwater. Pours dull golden with a nice sized sturdy white head. The aroma is very soft and floral with gentle spices, chamomile, spicy hops, flowers, light fruit and dry saison yeastiness - great aroma. Medium body that’s a bit rough with mildly harsh carbonation that works well for it. The taste starts quite hoppy with lots of spicy and floral hop traits. There is an overall dryness and gentleness from the spices and a nice saison earthiness. The finish has some nectar fruits added along with black pepper. Excellent beer.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Prairie Moon (?), Evantston, IL tap ($7): Pours a pale, slightly cloudy color with a white head. Aroma is, to the surprise of no one, full of spices, citrus, and yeast. I didn’t notice the sage right off the bat, but with enough effort you can find it. I noticed something akin to lemongrass in there, but reading the description that might be from the combination of hops. The taste is very smooth (and unfortunately, I got mine in a really small glass, so there wasn’t that much to relish), with sufficient hops to give this beer and American character, but still maintain the lightness of the saison style. Tons of different spices and flowers become evident from every given sip. And of course, my favorite part of a beer, the yeast.
