COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s my pleasure to present a collaboration with The Brewer’s Art. A Baltimore institution that helped to pioneer the Belgian beer movement in the States. Brewed with a combination of Spelt & Rye, accented with a blend of Heather, Honeysuckle, and Hyssop. The result is a rustic farmhouse ale displaying earthy tones & floral characteristics while maintaining intricate balance.

NOTE: This is a different beer than the version brewed at Brewer’s Art.

Good summer beer, nice sour notes. Great aroma with hints of raspberries. Didn’t get much of the other notes mentioned in the beer.

I’m not at all familiar with this style, so I don’t know if it’s a perfect representation, or if it falls short.

Draught at Naka-Meguro taproom. Nice fruit salad bouquet, bread, funky pepper, dry finish. Good stuff, quite smooth and good pairing with food.

Garrold (2252) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Tall Boys, Leeds. Clear, dark orange. Minimal, white head. Lovely, toasty, bready saison character. The honeysuckle is evident. There’s a sweet, herbal edge, presumably the hyssop. Taste is soft sweet. Slowly turning light dry, and lighter bitter. Some spice on the palate. Slightly sticky. Finishes soft sweet, with a saison, bready finish. Liked this. Bit sticky, though.

pours clear light but bright golden with a small white cap, minimal retention and lacing. green apples and pears, light fruity tartness - lemony perhaps; flowery without being perfumey, classic stillwater yeast - spicy, astringent pepper and berry fruitiness sweetish caramel, candied grapefruit, low-fi phenols. average to light carbonation - some delicate fizz, light body - oily; very lightly tart and dry herbal-spicy finish. nice use of grains/plants/herbs with stillwater’s signature. original, tasty and nicely crafted.

9/7/14. 750mL bottle shared by someone at a VORLAUF meeting, I believe. Golden pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Citrus, mild funk, doughy malts, a whiff of tartness in the aroma. Pleasant flavor, citrus, a hint at funk, pale malts, floral. Not bad.
