COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkel and Brian are two of the world’s most unconventional brewers. By designing beers at various breweries around the globe, they have found the freedom to experiment and innovate, resulting in unique beers that often blur the lines of definition. After having met at a festival in Bodegraven, NL the two realized that their first creations both were called Stateside. It was then an obvious decision to make the two recipes into a new product, packed full of piney, resinous hops, and backed by the esters of a farmhouse yeast strain.

750ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice dark golden/amber with a huge, and I mean huge head. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast and hops which is, as the description on the bottle mentions, on the resinous side. Taste has an good amout of bitterness and is slightly acidic. Body is medium-full with some over average carbonation (this had me burping like crazy...!) Texture is slick, a really nice aspect of this beer. Aftertaste is pretty bitter and long-lasting. Overall a good brew. Aroma is nothing to write home about and in fact the brew as a whole didn?t impress me so much, but maybe it?s because it was a bit overhyped to me when I asked about it where I purchased it. Don?t get me wrong, it is good, but for me it falls into the "tried it, it was good, but won?t buy again" category. EDIT: After reading other?s rating on this one, I wonder if my bottle might have gotten old, as I bought it 6 months ago and it was stored at temperatures reaching 25C last summer...

Bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson! Pours a hazy golden appearance with a big fluffy, cream colored head. Musty, barnyard, light lemon, herbal aroma. A bit peppery, somewhat spicy, straw, light vanilla, straw flavor with a dry finish. Pretty nice Saison for a session ale.

My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruitiness is grounded in floral honey and herbal hops in this prickly farmhouse brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty pale gold.
-Mouthfeel could be fluffier for the style.
-Malts contribute hay-like allusions.
-Body is lean and carbonation quite bubbly, hard.
-There is a lot going on in there, but I can’t say it gels completely for now.

Bottle.

Bottle, shared by edvard june 2012. hazy orange body, big white lively head. Aroma of belgian yeast, citrus, pepper, grain. Taste is fruity with spicy yeast notes, caramel, slightly sour. very carbonated, which fits this beer nice. Hoppy grassy and dry finish with a sweetness coming through in the aftertaste. I enjoyed this beer.

nick76 (4221) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2012
The aroma is very yeasty and fruity with malt, grass, and leaves. The appearance is hazy gold with a large head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The palate is average. Overall an interesting beer but a bit to hoppy for me.

there is lots of character in this beer. flavors of golden wheat malts and the use of lots of herbs and spices including rosemary, white pepper and thyme. its really frothy with some massive head retention.

25.4 oz. Bottle, I’d brought home from Baltimore. Purchased at Urban Cellar in 7/2012 and stored in the fridge. A beautiful Belgian strong ale from two greats. Pine hop, grapefruit sour scent, a touch of resin. Bit white bubbly head of a orange copper pour. Lighter bodied than I expected with a fizzy feel. Pine hop fronted taste, grapefruit sour dominated taste with some yeasty earthiness underneath, and resin on the finish.

Bottle from recent Maine trip. So looking forward to this one, what would be the problem then? Fresh fruity and yeasty aromas greet me. Tasty peach, apricot, lemon, white pepper with the mix. The problem - way too much carbonation.

Tried this beer in the bottle at Public House in the Venetian/Palazzo Las Vegas, NV. Nice piney hop and farmhouse yeast notes in the aroma and taste. A great collaboration, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
