Smells like a delicious over ripe orange. Hazy pale orange color lasting white head. Lovely soft tart dry citrus like flavors caress your throat in velvet as the cedar carry’s it home perfectly.

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.

5/6/16. Draft at Criterion. Pours a light straw yellow w tight light carbonation. Light lemony nose. A bit of woody funk in the taste but super refreshing. Lots of flavors going on. Really like this. Most interesting thing I've tried in a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2011
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

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2011
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 (7133) - 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.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2011
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.

mambossa (281) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2016
AP: Hazy "Sunny D" gold, frothy and airy head.
AR: Sweet lemon skin, bruised green apple, soft leather, fresh violet, tangerine, vibrant young spruce, mineral earthiness, potpourri, pomelo, bready malt.
T: Gentle tangerine upfront, candied lemon rind, soft white flowers, flat & coating leathery yeast, pine. Easy body with a finely chalky but smooth texture. Linger of floral apple and gently tart lemongrass.
Not sure if a whole lot of cedar shined through, knowing it is a very potent wood. Still very nice.

Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of the wild yeast up front that quickly leads to awesome fruity notes and a hint of the spicy cedar on the end. Taste follows, great balance of flavors for me, the wild yeast might be taking over a bit but I don’t mind that. Really excellent.
