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.

12 oz can poured into a tulip glass. Golden color with a 2" fluffy white head. Nose is Belgian yeast, very similar to a duvel...just not as strong. There is a slight citrus aroma as well. Taste great, medium high carbonation. I could definitely have a few of these.

As this is my first official rating one should probably hold back a little praise for the next ale. However I must say I thoroughly enjoy all Stillwater beers. This was purchased from my local, Saint John Craft Beer, in a can. Poured well, good head retention. Left me with a lovely sour refreshing finish. Consumed whilst prepping Sunday Lunch with a friend so I did not have to give it too much focus, because friends are important too are they not?

On draft at Pizzeria Paradiso in Old Town Alexandria yesterday for the Stillwater event. The beer is light straw colored and hazy with an inch of pure white head. Aroma of saison, funk, light spice, lemons, assorted citrus, floral notes. Easy drinking and full of nice flavors. A touch of floral hops gracefully compliments a light hop biterness amid a healthy dose of herbal, earthy, and mild funk notes. Pretty light in body. I look forward to drinking this again. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy very pale yeloow with a medium white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has nice light funkiness...subtle. flavor follows suit and adds light grass and spice...nice subtle funk! Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and grassy finish.

Pouring at BBF in Boston. Ended up hanging with Brian after the first session, pouring with him during the second. Crushed many a can. Many, many a can. Pours a hazed glowing gold with a medium sized white head. Soft grain, a bit of musk, yeast. Soft lemon, light musk, bright and crisp. Gentle bitterness on the finish. Wonderfully easy drinking.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Can. Pours hazy straw with a large pillowy head that leaves a lot of scuzzy lacing. Aroma is softly grainy, yeasty, slightly funky, herbal. Flavor is all that -- very complex and yet quite drinkable. Quite dry, mildly bitter. I love the 4.5% ABV. Soft carbonation.

nealblind (663) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - OCT 30, 2013
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 Iíve ever had. Kudos.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours light pale yellow with a sturdy white head. The aroma has fruity Belgian traits, mild sweetness, grapes, apricot, bubblegum and light funk. Light crisp refreshing body with a bit of lively carbonation. The flavor starts with mild maltiness, apriocots/peaches, spice, earth, bugs and some cellar must. The finish has lots of pepperiness, brett-like bugginess and a thrist quenching snappiness. It would be real easy to drink a lot of these & at 4.5% I canít do it without running into trouble quickly. Another winner from Stillwater. Love that this is now in 6 pack cans instead of the everything being in bombers.

DrSilverworm (5917) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2013
12oz can, from Party Source. Almost entirely hazy bright yellow color. GOod bigger white head fades to a nice thin amount. Leaves good lace. Great big grassy and citrusy hop nose. Light spice. Light bready malt profile. A very bright beer overall. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Nice lightly dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, good zestiness. This is a delicious, refreshing, smooth beer. Satisfyingly hoppy, but thereís much more to it than that. Impressively complex, especially considering the light ABV.
