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 ícleansingí 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 letís not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Iím loving this! Hands down one of the best belgian whites Iíve had in a while. Tons of sage aroma with plenty of the Belgian yeast esters. Not to mention, it has a nice wheat character thatís not over powering. It almost has a faint tartness. This is great! Yum! Would love to try the sour version...

Draft at Of Love & Regret. Pours cloudy dark gold with a bubbly white head. Tastes like herbs, lavender, light yeast, light soapyness. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like yeast, crackers, light creaminess, light herbs.

On tap at the Stillwater at Dig Bar. Saison. It pours a clear deep gold with a thin filmy head that quickly dissipates. A huge sage aroma assaults your nose in a good way. The flavor is somewhat candy sweet with a funky saison character and tons of sage. Really interesting stuff.

It pours a hazy orange yellow with a fine 1" layer of foam. It smells spicy, of citrus hops with a strongish aroma of lemon zest. Lemon grass and I guess, that Sage are giving me big time citrusy bitterness and an earthy "feel" that I think is quite unusual but very tasty. It ends on the decidedly dry and still very bitter side. Yummy. Medium bodied with perhaps a tad too much carbonation but thatís a minor quibble. This surprised me, though the ratings are on the good to very good side on average. The surprising thing? Today is April 5, 2014. This bottle has a bottling date of April 23, 2013. Wow, that is nothing short of amazing!

Clear golden body, medium to thin white head, sparse lacing. Sage is undeniable as it hits you immediately after the cap is removed. Light citrus and peppery yeast follows. Medium to light bodied, lively carbonation, dry, yeasty finish.

On draught at Saraveza for the 2014 Portland Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival. Clear light golden color. Aroma is herbal tea, cola, yeast, and coriander. Taste is sweetened black tea, sage, spice, citrus, and light yeast. Refreshing herbal finish.

12 oz bottle. Golden pour with decent white head. Nose is yeast, bananas, and citrus. Taste follows the nose with some mild barnyard funk. Pretty good.

Cloudy light golden color with amazing thick white foamy head. Spicy, yeasty, herbal aroma. Malty, peppery, earth, citrus flavor with some yeast and sage flavors. Bitter grapefruit zest finish . Bubbly feel in mouth. Really nice well crafted brew. This is my first Stillwater Artisanal and I canít wait to try more.

12 bottle pours hazy gold with a white head that disappears immediately. Is this a phonaesthetic reference or do they just really like Donnie Darko? Pretty complex brew. Incredibly phenolic, spicy nose, earthy, and phenolic flavor. Yeasty flavors with a dry, clean finish. Damn fine beer.
