4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’m assuming this is the base beer for Premium, as it resembles that beer quite a lot in several ways and has the same ABV, though it has American hops rather than Saaz so perhaps not. Beautiful yellow with a rising bubbly carbonation and sticky head. Aroma light lemony citrus character, hints of grassy hops, pils malt evident. Taste is lightly sweet, bitter finish, lemon rind character prevalent in the front, carbonation level not exactly where I’d like it but otherwise this beer hits all the right notes. Mega drinkable, great beer to buy a sixer of and drink in a session. Fascinating stuff, another great offering from Stillwater.

The session beer to end all session beers? I could drink ten of these. A subtle brett quality all the way through giving you a classic bubble gum citrus pear aroma and flavor coupled with fresh grain and earthy hops. Currently my favorite session ale in a can at a stupidly affordable price.

Pour is pale yellow, transparent with a creamy white head. Nose is super floral, loads of hop and nice clean grain to balance. Taste is so easy to drink, lots of floral hops and nice smooth grain bill. High carb, tight, dry. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lovely dandelion blonde pour; heavy carbonation evident and the white cap is persistently replenished. Super crisp pils malt with wildflower honey, dried grasses and chlorinated, mineral water nose. Subtle tones of apricot, and mint from the intrigue of quiet hops. Delicate esters twinkle here and there.
The flavor is dry as cobwebs a century old, or some moon rock mineral dust. Dried flowers, pencil shavings, dry maize and saltwater biscuit pils malt form the substantial body. The smacking, bitter dryness following raw green herbs. Gruyere rind level dry finish, with some mild funk being the only true flavor left to compete.
Eminently drinkable in its construction of healthy texture and high-treble crispness, in the goddamn stratosphere.

Can(s). Pour is cloudy yellow with a large, rocky white head. Aroma is spicy and dry with hints of pale malt and light black pepper. Flavor is full with loads of floral and spicy hop notes along with a clean dry finish. This is an amazing beer and at this ABV I am very impressed. Wish it was a little less pricey but this has still been my go to beer for months now. My current favorite low ABV beer. Love this stuff.

Super hoppy nose with citrus and herbs, some light honey and a touch of past. Taste is very dry, moderately bitter, lots of herbs and fresh citrus, somelight juicy sweetness at the end. Fantastic stuff, could drink all day.

Can from Decicco Ardsley. Pale gold with chill haze fluffy head and lace. Lemony grassy pastry aroma. Very refined apricot fruit sweetness with grassy citrus rind medium very dry lingering bitterness. Light but not watery. Effervescent. Well attenuated for low abv thanks to specialy grains that I would have rejected had I read the description first. Fucking excellent.

The commercial description is a little confusing but as a saison it's very good. Hero yellow color off-white long-lasting had with good lacing. Faint spicy yeasty aroma. Bitter dry yeasty slightly lemony tangy flavor. Great body. Not bad but a bit heavy on the bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 tap at max’s. brilliant blonde, soapy tangerine wake nose hairs. Grassy and light, amazing nose. Flavor follows right in suit, even more hops, brilliant pang of citrus in the finish. Light sulfur shoots around as only complaint, slick body accents how dank it is.

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.
