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.

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.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Mild fruity aroma. Starts malty, spicy, notes of some herbs, mild sweetish. Finish more dry, a bit yeasty. Fruity like peach. Okay.

Appearance: lightly hazed medium gold; short creamy white head. Aroma: lightly herbal, with light lemongrass and citrus. Taste: funky, slightly salty, with strong notes of sage. Finish: sour fruit, light smoke. Notes: Didn’t much work for me, although it got better as it warmed a bit. On draft at Quench! in Silver Spring, Maryland

Well, certainly has one of the nicest names to say of any beer. Bottled 05/06/14. Nose is heavy wheat, heavy spice (sage, dominant, probably too much), light citrus peel and juice, lemon, orange, tangerine. Pours lightly hazy but boldly intense golden with above avg carb and a rocky-soapy white head. Taste is lightly tart and lightly bittern, sweet but not cloying (it’s probably secondary sweetness that does it), strong scratchy spice with strong citrus (orange and tangerine) in good balance with each other. Yeast is highly peppery. Fullish body, spice and wheat dominate the finish and aftertaste, probably too heavy for me to consider refreshing, but clean and crisp and a worth experiment in moving the Wit away from tradition.
