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.

Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of brett, citrus, saison spicy notes and bready malt. Love the citrus meets slight funk in the nose. Flavor much the same. Really well done beer. Reminds me of a saison with a hint of brett and Amercian hop citrusy notes.

drpimento (2218) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Poured at a good temperature with a mammoth, off-white, foamy, frothy, billowy, fluffy head that slowly settles and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is a volatile blend of hop, malt, yeast, bread. Flavors like nose, fairly dry and bitter with just right carbonic tang. Body is full and carbonation is perfect. Finish is like flavor, kind of long, and leaves me looking forward to more. Excellent brew!

tderoeck (4521) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2011
05/03/2011 - 75cl bottle @ Alvinne Craft Beer Festival (2011-85) Thanks to Brian for the sample!

Little cloudy orange to light amber beer, off-white creamy head, little adhesive and somewhat stable. Aroma: citrus, pineapple, hoppy fresh. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, citrus and passion fruits, touch of yeast. Aftertaste: hops, fruity, citrus, pineapple. Very balances IPA or very hoppy saison, being a blend of both styles I love the outcome!

Hazy, light orange in color. White head on top. Some nice funky aromas, with some solid potent hop smells as well. Wonderful as it warms.

750ml poured into a tulip. Massive, rocky off-white head sitting atop a nearly translucent orange body like a mass of whipped cream. Globs of lacing left with each sip. The aroma is typical of a Stillwater saison with a very dusty "rustic" profile with passion fruit, peach and a smorgasbord yeasty esters galore! The flavour is dry, semi-sweet, mildly salty and supah fruity. Booze is extremely well-hidden. Airy and medium carbonation that is somehow very spritzy tactically. Medium palate duration with lingering spicy, yeasty notes akin to white peppercorn and bubblegum. Delish!
