3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A pleasant enough hybrid. Looks like a saison, slightly hazy, head smaller than I expected. Not a yeasty bready as a traditional saison, not as hoppy or obviously American hopped as I expected either. Very, very nice, but just not as remarkable as some of the Belgian (Hop-it) or American (Hoppin’ Frog) hybrid offerings.

On draft at Isaac Newtons. Notes of banana, clove, spice, wheat and citrus. A nice earthy and citrus finish. A nice wit.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a finger of head on a slightly hazy light straw colored body.
The aroma has a lot of fresh ground black pepper, a little sage and earth.
The taste is peppery, mild grain and lemon bitterness.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
An improvement on the standard wit beer.

Foggy, oaky gold. Big, fluffy, stiff head. Cool label. Standard longneck. Almost savory, light vinegar, some stewed fruit, phenols. Fermented apricot, black pepper, bandaid, yeasty. Lightish body, effervescent. Tangy aftertaste, sticky chemical aftertaste. Saison is, at best, sufferable. Beer Stop.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I really liked this; light and fruity with more of a saison flavor than a Belgian wit but bubbly and refreshing. Really good.

""touch" of white sage my butt! that was the dominating factor in the aroma and flavor. quite pleasant, but a surprisingly one-trick pony. on tap, so i was saved from another gusher. nice medium-full mouthfeel, even with the prickly carbonation. a little yeast and sweetness in the background, but this beer showcased the sage without being as funky or saison-like as the other Stillwater brews I’ve had. 7/12 - hops (good) + carbonation (bad) come through more in the bottle. More complex in aroma and flavor, but the feel suffers, too gassy."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Nice aroma of sage and citrus. Nearly clear medium amber with a solid 1/2" white head, streaky lace. Good looking. Taste is unique and cleansing - wheat and malt are present, but so are herbs and earthy, dry-grass sage. It all moves smoothly to a lingering finish that is mostly earth and dry-grass bittering that is somehow appealing. It isn’t exactly a Witbier, but it is original, and it is very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
large white frothy head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. dark yellow thick hazy body. aroma: moderate hoppy, citrur orange, coriander, sage. if: moderate sweet (honey, fruity). ff: light sweet acidic and bitter, plus salty; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and light astringent finish. bem condimentada (lembra manjericão, sálvia e coentro). bem diferenciada do estilo, com alguma acidez de limão, mas com ligeiro amargor e bem mais temperada. sente-se um pouco de álcool no final. uma das mais complexas representantes do estilo já degustadas por mim. 130s
