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.

hazy gold, thin white head turns quick to a ring. Sage, earth in nose, bit eggy with citrus undercurrent. Heavy sage and lemon in flavor, light wheat, bit peppery but not nearly dry enough, too much fruit and eggy quality, otherwise a nice avenue for balanced sage.

Wow! Fabulous beer! Look out Belgium!! This is right up there with the best. Poured with a foamy, frothy, off white head that lasts and good lace. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is a pungent blend of yeast, malt, fruit, grass, earth, and fresh cut hay. Flavor is similar with the carbonic acid, yeast bitterness, and malty sweetness prominant. Body is perfect for this beer. Finish has the more extreme qualities dropping off quick and the more balanced and milder qualities with a slower taper to a medium length. Wow AWESOME BEER

glennmastrange (2274) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of grain and hay, herbs and lemon for the hops, barnyard and musty for the yeast, with apple wood and coriander in the background. Head is huge, fizzy/frothy turning rocky, white with excellent thick and slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is murky, yet sparkling, yellow tan. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter and a bit tart. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery to dry, with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Refreshing, nice balance in flavor and good complexity in aroma, this is definitely a re-do Saison.

Dark yellow color with a white head and a lot of carbonation. The aroma is earthy and floral. There is a hint of malty sweetness on the taste but it’s well balanced. The finish is crisp and clean and makes your mouth water with a latent sourness. This is a very drinkable and enjoyable Saison!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 31, 2011
750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Enjoyed the regular Stateside saison and was very much looking forward to the white sage in this one. Really handsome pour, hazy straw gold with raucous carbonation. Extremely earthy smell initially recalls Dupont, but then you get the light citrus notes and a dash of spice. Very inviting. Crisp and lively body, nicely prickly dry finish. Taste of citrus (faint grapefruit rind) and grain, very earthy core to the beer, and I wanted just a bit more spice for contrast (funny to read that others found it too much). Definitely a fine saison though.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with a large rocky off white head. Aroma is clove, citrus, orange and tangerine. Flavor is TONS of tangerine, some herbal notes as well. Paired excellently with some orange beef stew I had made.

clingman71 (297) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2011
My second Stillwater Artisinal, the first being Stateside Saison. After this, I can’t wait to try the third bottle, Existent. Hazy straw yellow, active. Aroma of grains, bready, spice, and some wheaty funk. Flavor begins just a touch sweet, but a slight hop presence along with a good amount of spice build throughout. Spicy peppery finish, palate cleansing carbonation, very, very good.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle… Tampa “Farewell to Sebletitje” Tasting… Lightly hazed golden ale with a large, frothy, white head. Great retention. The aroma presents pale grains, English lavender, heather and sage. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Perfectly balanced with a nice herbal component consisting of heather and freesia. Crisp, herbal, lightly bitter finish.

Thanks Greg for sharing this at Sea Bass. A nice, crisp and flavorful golden saison. Not tart, or even funky like a lot of saisons. Vibrant carbonation. Flavor is slightly grainy sweetness with some spice notes and a good dose of citrus hoppiness without a bitter edge. I’m very, very impressed by how drinkable this beer is. I could drink glass after glass.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Hopscotch. Une des nouvelles brasseries montantes aux US.. Dorée avec un léger trouble, blanche. Superbe au nez, allant à la fois vers un côté épicé et herbes tirant sur des notes de levure. Des fruits citronnés donnent au nez une bonne touche d’agrume avec une douceur d’orange ainsi que de plante de sauge. Au palais, on ressent bien la sauge qui laisse en bouche un aspect de thé. Un peu de citron aussi présent pour une bière qui reste bien réalisée. Parmi cette fine amertume on peut aussi y noter de la pelure de mandarine, malt pale tout en conservant une levure de saison.
