Not really my thing but the influence of the farmhouse yeast is clear. Would prefer a more traditional saison throughout.

Bottle shared by edvard
A gusher. Orange hazy, super big head. Takes a while to pour a descent glass of beer. Smells of belgian yeast, malts, grass and herbs. Medium sweet, malt tones, yeast fruityness and some spices. Nice bitter grassy finish. Often i feel that belgian breweries nail belgian styles better than other craft brewers, and once again i think this is the case. This is for sure a well crafted beer, but i canít say that this is one of the best of itís style, cause itís not. And the charge of the bottle here in Norway is just insane btw. Itís almost 30$ and thatís way to expensive

Tap at Of Love & Regret, cloudy goldenrod pour with a tight, white head (like all of Brianís beers!). Vinous hoppy nose. Taste is quite hoppy for this brewer. It tastes like a fruity Belgian golden with a massive addition of Earthy and citrus hops. Slick in the mouth and less dry of a finish than other Stillwater beers.

Bottle picked up in the Bowery New York City, at a Whole Foods. Pours a cloudy yellow/ amber colour, with a super active bubbly white head leaves some minor spots of lacing behind. Smells a touch Belgian with a crisp/ sharp refreshing spice. Tastes bitter, but beyond refreshing, thereís a little lemon zest on the back end. A little bite. Would love on draught.

On tap at Birch Bar in Norfolk. Enjoyed a growler chasing down grilled lamb chops over arugula and feta.

Starts off hoppy but piddles out. Iím not a big fan of hops, so I donít mind. Iím not sure this beer knows what it wants to be.

Draught at Cafť DíAlsace, NYC. June 1. Pours a cloudy orange with an average size diminishing creamy white head and decent lacing on the glass. Lovely aroma of herbs & spices, Belgian yeast and floral hops. Flavour of herbs & spices, yeasty and grassy and with some citrus fruit. Alcohol totally hidden. Medium bodied. So good, I loved it.

With a good amount of Belgian herbs and spices it doesnít stray to far from the yeasty fo ish you might expect from a farmhouse-ish brew, no that it over rides the bitterness of the hops that are clearly present, but beware the dry hop finish that sneaks up on you at the end of a mouth full.

750ml bottle served in a tulip. Lots of carbonation. Poured a hazy gold with a massive head. Plenty of citrus in the aroma along with some Belgian spice. Light bodied and crisp. Spritzy carbonation. Fair amount of hop bitterness. Spicy Belgian yeast in the finish. Hop dryness. Easy drinking beer, good stuff.

I had this on the sidewalk at Hawthornes during Philly Beer Week. Might be the best week of the year. This is very tasty. It pours a light amber with a small head. The aroma is quite hoppy, more than expected. It has the sour start like a saison but the hops take over on the back end. Very nice and refreshing.
