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.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a very slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of grapefruit, citrus, and floral hops with some sweet grainy and bready malts, and some Belgian yeast, spices, and lemon zest. T - Starts off with with grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops with some bitterness and some sweet grainy malts, lemon zest, and coriander. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with a bit more bitterness and Belgian yeast with some spices and some mild funk. The finish is a mix of pine and grassy hops with some bitterness, Belgian yeast, some tart lemon peel, a bit of funk, and some spices. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, tart, and estery finish. D - Very drinkable. Great overall balance with good hop character and yeast character.

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a brilliant hazy orange color, lots of head. Aroma is powerful, farmhouse yeast, citrus, resin. Medium body with bright mouthfeel. Finish is long and akin to the "earthiness" common in saisons and despite the strong presence of hops in the nose, the finish is exquisitely well-balanced and smooth. I’m not sure what this beer is technically in terms of style, but it is really delicious.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours cloudy somewhere between yellow and orange. Monstrous white head with lots of carbonation feeding it.Smells wonderful. Some citrus/orange/peach sweet notes supporting heavy yeast aroma. Delicious belgian strong ale. The citrus definitely is pronounced but not overdone. A nice yeasty finish. Just enough hop bitterness to provide balance and definitely some alcohol warming at the end.Great beer, highly recommended.

BeerBeCue (103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
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...

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2012
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.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
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 (4372) - 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.

Palidor19 (3151) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2012
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.
