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)

Maakun (1884) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2015
Brewed at ’t Hofbrouwerijke. Bottle at home. Gusher. Hazy amber with small off white head. Massive cinnamon up front, glühwein, bananabread, lots of caramel, raisins, some yeast. Medium sweet and light herbal biutter. Medium bodied with slick feel and under medium carbonation (even though this was quite the gusher). Spring? I don’t get any spring at all, this beer tastes very close to my girlfriends glühwein, massive christmas spices here. But I actually quite enjoy it.

leghorn99 (145) - 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 (845) - 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.
