COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

Bottle to tasting glass. Lots of bubbly foam! Amber/ medium brown color. Great nose & flavors- spicy, slight Belgian funk, wheat, mild bitterness, finishing very dry. Excellent saison!

leghorn99 (115) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 24, 2015
Di bel colore ambrato; buona schiuma, di discreta persistenza. L’aroma è fortemente floreale e aromatico, caratterizzato da odori di lavanda su tutti; a seguire camomilla, zenzero e agrumi. Il gusto è dolce di malto e miele, note floreali e un mix speziato molto variegato. Amaro molto morbido, "giusta" gradazione alcolica, frizzantezza ripulente; buon equilibrio, gradevole l’impressione generale.

danielecamo (798) - ITALY - JUN 29, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore giallo paglierino, limpida. Aroma di salvia, alloro, camomilla, fiori di campo. al palato corpo watery, sentori di fiori, salvia e camomilla. Manca di corpo, la parte maltata non si sente quasi. Troppo sbilanciata verso la speziatura.

Light brown colour. Aroma and flavour are dominated by bay leaf and other wild herbs. Maybe some ginger and orange too. Sugary sweet. Awful.

TET (2109) - 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.
