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.

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.

Westchesterco (953) - mclean, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2014
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

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

RobertDale (3473) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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 (4908) - 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.

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 7, 2014
Love and regret is much more about regret, than any type of love. Wayyy over spiced like an amateur brewery trying to be big and hardcore. Sure the underlying beer ain’t bad, but when you are this over the top. No one cares.

Bottle (12 oz). Clear golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is quite spicy with lavender, chamomile, floral presence, cereals, grass and lemon. Taste is also quite spicy with the same features as aroma and light acidity. Medium body. Prickly carbonation. Dry finish. Moderate lingering spicy finish. Not my favorite from Stillwater because the spices take too much / all the place. It’s definitely tasty and the spices are showcased, but the drinkability is average at best. Balance isn’t too bad considering the ingredients.
