Decided this would be a great Football beer. Low abv, drinkable, tasty, and cool. Straw pour. Aroma of peppery yeast with pear, lemon, and some corn pilsner pale malts. Taste was nice and mellow adding some banana and clove flavor. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a big bone white head with great lacing. Aroma is lemon and lime with some apple and a hint of juicy fruit. Taste is lemon zest, apple and hay. Some minerality mid palate with some pepper and grassy hop flavor. Finishes amazingly dry and clean, inviting you to take another sip. Mouthfeel is crisp and light medium bodied with high carbonation that scrubs your palate. Very drinkable and refreshing with complimentary flavors that work well with the dryness and aren't overwhelmed by the carbonation. I can definitely see myself buying a six pack to enjoy during warmer months or drinking this as a table beer.

12oz can from "Lifesource" Salem OR
Very hazy yellow coloured beer with a sticky.clingy white head.
Aroma has phenolics,over ripe pear,roses,..unusual and unexpected!
Taste us different again very "bubbly",some spice,pepper and a bit of bitter apple, good but not as good as the aroma!
mouth feel is overall thin very dry tangy ginger root end!
weird beer a meld of different styles..still OK in my book.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very pale and very hazy… straw colored with a big long lasting head and good lacing on the glass.
Aroma is earthy, doughy, & lightly fruity. The beer has a nice citrus rind character and some nice leafy and grassy happiness. It’s very inviting.
The flavor is very dry, extremely pleasant in bitterness with soft fruity and doughy flavors. I love the hop character here… not fruity really at all much more of a grassy & leafy hoppiness, bold but not brash.
Palate is light and lively…. it’s got a cool balance of lightness but enough carbonation to keep you sipping instead of slamming this real sessionable brew.
Yep, she’s a shelf beer.

Hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is lemongrass and pear esters. Taste is the same, and refreshing while still a bit intense.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Misty yellow straw with a white head. Nose is bread, slightly sweet with faint orange. Medium light with a bright tang finishing creamy with a dry bitter bite. Taste is grain, bubblegum, orange peel and pith; a bit floral. Almost perfect for what it is.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: very light yellow, with active carbonation jets and a short, fizzy bright white head. Aroma: active farmhouse yeast, white pepper, honey, crackers, slight gym socks and banana. Taste: saison spice and funk over light cracker, almost lagery grains, with slight citrus. Finish: prominent herbal bitterness overtakes a pilsnery finish. Notes: At the place I purchased a single can (Perfect Pour, Columbia, MD; 3.49 for one can?!) they told me it was Stillwater’s take on venerable Baltimore piss-beer Natty Boh. Indeed, it tastes almost exactly like a cheap lager fermented with saison yeast. Can artwork, which features a classy version of the Natty Boh eyepatch guy, seems to support this hypothesis.

Canned. Not sure what it poured as, will guess yellow. SOme grass and grain and creaminess. Pretty well executed overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours a faint straw color, hazed and with plenty of bubbles that want up. A good head of loose white bubbles that fell to a thin layer on top and a ring. Nose is spicy with a bit of yeasty funk and has plenty of lemon citrus. Very faint apple. A lightly sweet grain malt and grassy herbal. The taste is earthy and and peppery. It has a sheeting dryness in the middle of the beer. Palate cleansing, refreshing and finishes with a sharp bitter and a reminder of the faint fruits. Peppercorns and spice . There is a light lemon peel but the beer never gets too fruity sweet. Grassy and herbal. Has a touch of sour or astringency on it .
I liked this but I thought it drank a lot like seltzer and was lacking in a bright fruit flavor to really bring it home. It finishes completely and leaves hardly any aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slight cloudy yellow pour big frothy head. Smells light yet funky and lemony. Tastes the same with some doughy brininess and serious hop dose. Some tang and bretta. Lighter in the body than other stillwater offerings.
This is the best "watery" beer out of a can I’ve ever had. Kudos.
