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)

Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Herbal aroma of chamomile and grain. Similar taste with the herbs leaning toward sage and rosemary flavors. Really good.

It smells sweet and citrusy with some Belgian yeast funk. It pours dark orange golden with a huge white head on top. There are notes of orange with herb flavors from all of the spring botanicals added. This is on top of a sweet almost syrup body, delicious.

GTAEgeek (1971) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold with a large khaki head. The aroma is heavy citrus, cut grass, banana esters, and a little dough and funk. The flavor is sweet and a little tart up front, mellow bitterness and spiciness in the middle, and a mild bitter finish. The palate is light, crisp and effervescent. Overall, a very interesting beer, with lots of layers. Easy to drink, and yet complex.

bierkoning (12577) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle. Orange color, cloudy. Orange peels, lemon, flowers, honey and coreander in the aroma. Sweetish flavor with coreander, mint, orange peels, lemon and lavender. Well balanced, in spite of the spices.

(Bottle) Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma is spicy/ginger-like, light ester fruity and grainy. Undertones of banana, lemon, lemon grass, lime, perfume, mint bubble-gum and dust. Nice, complex and Belgo-ish on the nose. The flavour is light sweet to dry, light bitter and tiny acidic. Tones of grain, citrus, spices and dust. The mouthfeel is soft and light round with light to medium carbonation. Spicy and citric finish. Near medium bodied. Nice, I like.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Bottle from Binny’s on Marcey. Pours a glowing yellowy orange with a huge head of foam that fades. Nose is okay, quite floral and a large burst of phenolics. some faint citrus as well. Yeast really dominates with some plastic notes. On taste, the plasticy phenolics are a bit much. I like the other fruity and estery notes, but the phenols really overwhelm this. Some pils malt and some hops, again floral. Not my bag.

Pours an unclear and amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, spices, coriander, yeast, pepper and perfume. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall an average beer.
