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.

ACBF. Cloudy gold beer, residual white head. Herby and tropical fruit nose. Soapy tasting, chalky dry beer with some tropical fruit lost in there somewhere! Way too dry! Really not getting these Stillwater beers!

Bouteille de 750 ml. Merci beaucoup à Dany et Marie-France. Arômes herbacés et rustiques, légère touche citronnée et de céréales. Magnifique robe blonde et trouble, effervescence active et très belle mousse. En bouche, on retrouve une belle complexité herbacée, épicée et fruitée, résultat d’un bel équilibre entre la sauge, le houblon et la levure. Le malt moelleux montre de belles notes de blé. Finale bien sèche montrant une pointe d’acidité et une délicate amertume. Une originale et excellente saison !

Hazy deep golden colour. Small white head. Ok lacing. Soft tart fruity aroma. The flavour is tart, fruity, some yeast, bit sweet, pleasant.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2011
bottle thanks to mansquito. Pours cloudy orange gold, with big, fluffy off white head. From the looks and first whiff it is already enjoyable. Aroma is bright and fresh, with plenty of spicy notes, soft rosemary, sage, which with the yeast presence lends a subtle tartness, also very floral. Incredibly smooth, rich mouthfeel, which is abruptly finished with little bit of sweet fruitiness, on to a lingering spiciness. Flavor is very complex, but somehow manages to also be refreshing. There are sweet fruity notes, an undercurrent of tart yeast, plenty of flowery spices which add both sweet and subtly bitter aspects. This saison is big in flavor as is typical of american versions but also is very nuanced and delicate like belgian renditions tend to be. Ultimately it is one of the better saison’s I’ve had, and is one of those which remind me the potential depth and possibilities for this style. This would be great any time of the year, at any time, and is highly recommended.

yngwie (15190) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle, 75cl, at Patricks. A nice two-finger white head sits on top of an unclear golden-orange body. The aroma is flowey with a good dash of fields of flowers. White sugar and tropical fruits and a cellar touch too. The flavor is pretty much the same, not as flowery, but equally sugary. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A nice saison in the American way. 110331

LIght refreshing saison, the sage is really what makes this beer spectacular, it is perfectly balanced into the brew, adding dimensionality to the hop profile.

Tmoney99 (11808) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy frothy white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to herbal, yeast and citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy herbal bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.
