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)

Pours a golden yellow with a white foam head. Has an aroma of sweet belgian yeast and lavender, along with a little bit of funk. Flavor is sweet, with lots of spices, particularly lavender. Has a full body, syrupy feel. Excellent all around.

Swaroga (1450) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo ma spory osad z malutkimi kawałkami. Kolor piwa to bursztynowa pomarańcza. Piana jest mała i szybko znika. Kolor piany jest szary. NOS : zapach jest niespotykany : kwiaty, rumianek, delikatna mięta. lawenda, karmel... trochę przypomina coca-cole. Po wstrząśnięciu wydobywam aromaty drożdży, ciemnego chleba i troszeczkę rozpuszczalnika. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane o tłustej teksturze i wodnistej konsystencji. W ustach nasycenie jest drażniące jak mocno gazowana fanta czy cola. Średnio słodkie (karmel), wytrawne o delikatnej gorzkości przypominającej ziemie i zioła. W smaku mało wymiarowe, nudne. Gdyby nie mocne aromaty kwiatowe to piwo byłoby szybko zapomniane. Posmak jest delikatny i średnio trwały o nutach delikatnie cierpkich i gorzkich przypominających zioła i ziemie. ODCZUCIA : lawenda i rumianek nie są najlepszymi składnikami do piwa ale za to bardzo ciekawym jest takie piwo choćby raz spróbować. To znaczy w tym wydaniu ponieważ te aromaty są wyraźne i podkreślone. Niestety smakowo jest bardzo nudne, wręcz drażniące za mocnym nasyceniem i prawie kompletnym brakiem piany. OCENA : smak : 4/10 pijalność : 6/10 styl : 0

onceblind (4521) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Hazy golden with a thin white foamy cap. Light nose overall but with a faint tone of lavender and pale ale malts. Pretty calm flavor for all the ingredients going on but there’s a nice undertone of herbal lavender and coriander going on with a pale ale maltiness and a general biscuity herbalness. Okay. Quite tasty and drinkable but more simple than the ingredients imply
