3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light floral aroma, pours a slightly hazy dark straw color, with a minimal head. The flavor is light, with a touch of sour and some earthy notes. Alcohol is well hidden, and this is an easy drinking beer. If you like saisons, give this one a try.

Torr frisk smak, brusande kolsyra, söt, dofta grönt äpple, lite pepprig med angenäm beska.

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 can’t say that this is one of the best of it’s style, cause it’s not. And the charge of the bottle here in Norway is just insane btw. It’s almost 30$ and that’s way to expensive

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Of Love & Regret, cloudy goldenrod pour with a tight, white head (like all of Brian’s 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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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, there’s a little lemon zest on the back end. A little bite. Would love on draught.

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