For the first edition of the Stillwater Import Series I traveled to the village of Beerzel, located in the Antwerp province of Belgium. Here I teamed up with brewmaster Jef Goetelen to craft an authentic Belgian version of my liquid interpretation of the Spring season. A recipe originally contrived a few years prior as a collaboration brew with my good friend Paul Kretzer. The base is German barley & wheat, with a touch of Belgian aromatic; accented with grassy hops and an array of spring botanicals (heather, chamomile, lavender, & dandelion). Like a fresh meadow in spring. (now currently brewed at Two Roads in CT)

TET (2205) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2015
A brown beer, a head is big and beige. Aroma is strongly flowery and aromatic, lavender and chamomile, some lemon. Taste has similar flower profile than in the aroma, lavender and chamomile, some spices. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Strong flowers, not bad but still this is a curiosity beer.

Shared at Porch Nite with Brisben and Raith. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a rich foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty and some floral. Flavor follows with more floral and some grassy and hay notes. Slightly sweet, more than I expected. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

This was suburb! Love the spice! Excellent stat and finish. Nice aroma and the label really is dramatic. It made me really want to try the beer!

Nice bottle, great story, decent but overrated beer. For all that gos into this I found it sort of one-dimensional, malty and spicy, perhaps too much chamomile? I don’t know, but for the ABV I was hoping for something with a bit more going on.

Idiosynkrasie (5156) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2015
750ml (unlabelled) bottle [hasn’t this version been brewed at Hof Ten Dormaal? - I might be mistaken]. Clear, copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Wowhowa! Fantastic fresh, fruity and herbal aroma, notes of different types of tea, hibiscus, rooibos, rose hip, mallow, chamomile, lavender, a touch of thyme and dandelion, some citrus. Taste delivers the same plethora of flavours with different emphasis, is less fruity overall, dry and minimally soapy, additional cinnamon and dandelion note in the finish. Very nice composition, close to really spectacular.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Absolutely fantastic Saison. Pours cloudy gold with a small head. Aroma is fruity with a hint of horse blanket. Flavor is sweet, but well balanced with a lot of fruit (apple) up front and just a hint of hop.

mgajdaczewa (1028) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015
W aromacie belgijskie fenole, białe owoce, lekka kwaskowość, świetny! W smaku coś na przecięciu tripla (spora słodowość, fenole) i sour ale (kwaskowość, lekka derka) i saisona (owoce i zioła). Genialnie skomponowane, niemały alkohol świetnie ukryty, pijalne i pełne. Świetne piwo!
