Draft. Pours orange with white head. Nose is predominantly fresh grapefruit with some cedar, pine, honeycomb, hay and wild yeast. Taste follows the nose. Tons of fresh grapefruit with some wild yeasts. Solid saison. Medium body.

Harvest saison (cask, just citra) - murky gold, frothy white head that laces before dropping. Light dust and earth in the nose, dry grass, faint hop. Very soft, husky balanced profile, dusty, very pleasant, lightly spritzy carbonation. A bit weighty and muted, but very nice, bordering on cristoffel nobel 848417

Harvest saison (cask, citra and summit) - largest white head of three, bit more gold body, murky. Nose is way more dank, manure, heavy dust. The complexity of the single with more fresh hop, spicier, dank. 948417

Harvest Saison (tap, 7.5) - same appearance as cask with less head. More biting hop, citrus, less earth, more estery with some eggy Brett, bit rougher profile, less muted though, not as much marriage and a bit more spice from the wood, ending very dry in the finish where cedar is most overwhelming. 747414

Mostly clear pour with hints of haze, sporting an amber color and a small white head. Huge spicy dough, coriander, spicy hoppiness, orange-citrus, angelfood cake dough, and cheesecloth give way to lavendar, bubblegum, resinous alpha acids, and dank herbals. Full body with fluffy effervescence and a resinously dry finish.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Cask with Citra and Summit (10/9/11): Pours a hazy deep amber with a full-lacing froth of pillowy white head. Has a big fresh resiny hop nose with a soft biscuity pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light sweetness with a biscuity complexity and lots of fresh resiny grapefruity hops. Extremely smooth, flavorful and drinkable.

Draft at ChurchKey. Cloudy orange pour. The nose holds nice earthy bark, tea leaves, dank grass, pink grapefruit, a touch of mango, and dry peat moss. Absolutely superb aroma. The flavor brings more of that wet hop fresh pungent hop presence balanced with awesome evergreen, bold fruit, and hot mulch. Yeast and a touch of bread brings the saison character out. Really excellent brew from Stillwater.

LIVEFAST (62) - Mount Misery, Valley Forge, - NOV 20, 2011
On draft at Teresa’s, served in a tulip. Hazy straw yellow, bone white head, great retention. Nose is lightly toasted cedar, cut pear, orange marmalade. Taste is all of the above paired with a thin cracker malt bill. Solid offering from Stillwater, but would have loved to taste a bit more hoppy goodness.

Cask hopped with citra. Nice floral nose, lots of citrus, some cider notes, and a but of dank weed. The taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, lots of honeysuckle, citrus, apricots, cotton candy and light cedar.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Citric and lemony hoppy aroma with light flowery notes and spicy yeast. The flavor has spicy yeast, a hint of funk, floral and citric hops, wood, and lemon. Really good.

On tap at Max’s during today’s Stillwater event. The event page says this beer is wet hopped, dry hopped, and aged on Cedar planks. Served in a cervoise. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-straw color with a very short white head and no real lacing or anything else on the way down. The nose brings bright, fresh Citra hops with a bit of that fresh-hop "green" character. Faint earth and a bit of wheat. Light spice. The flavor really hits the perfect level of Citra hops and adds a bit of wheat and white pepper. Good bitterness and a dry finish. Light body. Simply excellent.
