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.

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.

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.

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 (6678) - 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.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 14, 2011
750 mL bottle, capped: pours a hazy straw with an ivory, tight bubbled cream. Irony, slightly metallic aroma. A funkiness in the aroma translates into a wonderful sweetness. Wheaty and toasted pale malts make a subtle, while lively flavour. Turns a little sweeter in the finish with a touch more wheat and light clove. Great palate-slightly tingly and smoothly carbonated. An amazing surprise to the brewing party tonight. cheers.

750 ML Bottle-Hazy golden color w/a moderate white head & good lacing which lasted thru the brew. Wheaty, yeasty aroma. Flavors of wheat, light fruit, citrus, banana, white grapes, grass, & floral hops. Very smooth & easy to drink, had a real earthy flavor to it. Long dry finish, another excellent brew from Stillwater.

Capped 750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy light gold with a foamy near white head. Lots of floral aroma with a light bit of sage. Kinda earthy, not quite barnyard. Definitely saison. Medium body with kicky carbonation. Flavor is most definitely sage, with something like orange, and something that qualifies as mild barnyard. Works very well. Tasty as anything. Great.

Bottle. Pours with a slightly hazed golden body and a massive, fluffy, white head. Great retention and beautiful lacing. Aroma is strong of white sage and pepper. A bit grassy, some yeast phenolics, peppery, earthy, herbal, citrus. Very dry and very herbally. Flavors of citrus, grain, caramel, sage, grass. Kind of an abrupt finish. I swear I am getting a touch of diacetyl, but I must be crazy. Maybe it is the sage messing with me. Very highly carbonated. A bit of cooked pear in the aftertaste. Lively. A bit of an alcohol presence. Dry. Super drinkable. Very well done!
