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.

Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants Stillwater event. Pours clear yellow. Soft malt and herb and lightly fruit arom. Flavor is a good lively sweet mild citrus leading to a lightly bitter and lively finish. Soft, mostly clean mouthfeel. Easy but non-descript.

Pours light orange with a thin off-white head, light spotty lacing. slightly sweet aroma, white grape, and a touch of caramel. The flavor has almost a wine like sweetness with a dry finish. The carbonation is moderately high and plays nicely with every thing else thats going on.

Thanks to Mike for offering me a sample from his 750ml bottle. Khaki head. Little loose lace. Hazy orange color. Kind of a sharp, soft carbonation. More dry finish. Light estery belgian yeasts, good piney hops. Light bitter taste. Good flavor, interesting texture.

750 ml bottle
This is one that I’ve been meaning to get around to and the results were not disappointing. A fine Belgian strong ale takes on the best characteristics of thins I’ve seen in most of the Mikkeller and Stillwater releases. I hope the other Stillwater bottles turn out so well.

Aroma / Appearance - The surge of dusty head took time to settle down like a frothy coffee drink. Underneath a cloudy rose gold body shimmered with light traces of sediment. Hay, earth, and lemons add to the impression of dusty old books. It feels ideal for an arid dry day as it has the same aspects.

Flavor / Palate - The texture is chewy and dense. A brittle woody bitterness fades away after a few sips save for a resin that hangs in the back of the throat. It feels earthy and toned down. This is a good collaboration although at $12.99 a little on the spendy side.

ClubGonzo (4172) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen, shared with (and bought by) Meilby, thanks man! :-) Pours a dark golden body with a large creamy long-lasting dense white head. Aroma is peppery notes, hints of peaches, sugar and herbs. Well balanced. Taste is odd, yet pleasant: wet moss, pepper, mushroom-like earthy flavors, hints of citrus and honey. Slick body, dry mouthfeel with a decent dash of carbonation. Well composed and a very interesting beer.

Lukaduke (2316) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Pours a nice medium orange golden color with a big foamy head... this beer has a surprisingly soft nose with hints of barnyard yeast, citrus and a bit of earthy spice whiffs coming through. On the palate there is nothing soft about it. Big bright farmhouse yeast with a great hoppy grapefruit quencher in the midpalate that bitters out on the finish. Top Notch Collaboration !

(75cl bottle) Courtesy of Left4Beer. Lasting frothy white head atop a hazy orange highly carbonated body. Nose is good and yeasty with a sparkling hop lift. Very enjoyable. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

theisti (3276) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2012
750 ml bottle purchased at Gomers in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The pour is a hazed golden yellow with not much off white head. The aroma is a dry malt wheat grain, some lemon citrus and peel, and a clove yeast. The taste is the clove yeast, nice full integrated malt body and the citrus is present as a nice spice. This certainly has the Stillwater house yeast character. The palate is medium bodied, nice unfiltered mouth feel and a clean dry finish.

Bottle from Frank Smiths and Blue Dog. Pours as a gusher with a huge head and a pale gold color. Nose was floral spice, hopcitrus, yeasty funk. Tastes of dry champagney yeast, florals, funk, hopcitrus, and a very complex finish. This one is stellar.
