COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For the first edition of the Stillwater Import Series I traveled to the village of Beerzel, located in the Antwerp province of Belgium. Here I teamed up with brewmaster Jef Goetelen to craft an authentic Belgian version of my liquid interpretation of the Spring season. A recipe originally contrived a few years prior as a collaboration brew with my good friend Paul Kretzer. The base is German barley & wheat, with a touch of Belgian aromatic; accented with grassy hops and an array of spring botanicals (heather, chamomile, lavender, & dandelion). Like a fresh meadow in spring. (now currently brewed at Two Roads in CT)

Karamellszínű főzetünk klasszikusan elegáns grafikával megáldott címkéjű üvegből érkezik a pohárba, majd ugyanilyen stílusú megjelenésével ejti ámulatba gyanútlan fogyasztóját, még azelőtt, hogy varázslatos illatait felfedné. Vadvirágok, vadon termő gyümölcsök, kökény, borsmenta, kamilla, levendula aromája fogad minket, mely utóbbiak jelenléte éppen azért olyan valóságos, mert személyükben a főzet valódi ízesítőit üdvözölhetjük. Ehhez csatlakozik aztán egy élesztős lepel, hogy némileg árnyalja az amúgy sem fakó összképet; kész remekmű az illatszerkezet, nincs mit szépíteni. Egészen visszafogott szénsavtartalma épp csak egy leheletnyit élénkíti meg az illatok által megfestett ízkompozíciót, amiben bámulatos módon elevenedik meg a kamilla, levendula virágos íze egy almás, diós, fahéjas, karácsonyi fűszeres keretben. A belga sajátosságokról nem is beszélve, melyek a mélységét adják a főzetnek. Bravúros újragondolása ez egy klasszikus stílusnak.

"Super nice saison...spring in a bottle. Spicy and fruity sweet with a spicy dry finish. Not overly carbonated with loads of yummy chamomile and lavendar among other things in the flavor. Maybe my favorite Stillwater to date and a top 5 saison easily."

fkoolen (504) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2014
Amber colour, very quickly disappearing foamy head. Aroma and taste are big on herbal tones with lavender being the best notable, chamomile too, along with sweet roasted malts and light hoppyness. First sip especially is very interesting. Medium carbonation, light body, oily soft mouthfeel.

On tap at magnolias at the mill in purceville it is a clear Holden color with a slight head. The aroma is of yeast and the taste is sweet and then goes into a root beer flavor that finishes bitter sweet

ronaldtheriot (1463) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Stillwater Of Love & Regret has a thin, white head, a hazy, gold appearance, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of spices, so the drinker will imagine being in a gift store. Taste is of those spices, again, with candle wax (think of Shipyard Pumpkinhead, as a point of reference), and underlying malt & wheat, and not the least bit alcohol. Bitterness with this beer is negligible. Mouthfeel is light to medium and prickly, and Stillwater Of Love & Regret finishes mild, spicy, and decently drinkable. RJT

On tap. Comes a somewhat cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of floral, citrus, and spice. Taste is lemon, floral, yeast, grass, and spice. Interesting.

EithCubes (5202) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2014
BTLD 04/16/14. Nose very floral with a spicy undercurrent, light and sweet wheat with a lavender and rose hip base, sweetness as if sorghum or another grain-type adjunct was used, extremely girly and aromatic without reeking of perfume silage. Lemon peel, lemongrass, too. Cloudy sunny yellow-golden with a white head. Taste very fresh and zesty, adds citrus to those well-defined botanicals, touches of myrtle and vanilla, tangelo, etc. Sweet with basically no bitterness, even the herbal mouthfeel is swallowed up by the wheat-and-sweet. Mild carbonation but still very refreshing, medium body with a citric aftertaste. Very well done.
