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)

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Complex aroma gushing with lavender (stuck with me, and took me several days to identify) interplays with sparkly, warming sweet ginger and apricot flavors, also with slight peppery note like grains of paradise or from the yeast. Carbonating is moderately high and there’s a mineral softness (like a hint of mud or tin, but with finesse) that brings it all to a lush finish. Ready for next sip.

A deep orange hazy unable to see through it. Very active lasting head. A herbal tartness lays over aromatic Woody hops in the smell. So smooth the soft herbs coat your tongue all taking their turn to make a quick appearance but then blend back into the whole. Soft and velvet on the palate.

Lubiere (12285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
A murky dark amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light candy sugar with light oxidation, treacle, light cherry and cinnamon notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light candy sugar, cherries, lactic acid, alcohol warmth, nice, if a bit tired.
