Light citrus on the nose with hints of a musty cellar. Bottle cap came off with a loud deep pop but did not gush. Pours hazy blonde with a very thick white head. Bretty pine upfront with a strong bitterness strong Brett funk and hops dominate very little malt presence. Very nice session ale though.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at Of Love & Regret, cloudy goldenrod pour with a tight, white head (like all of Brian’s beers!). Would never have guessed that this is based on a post-Prohibition beer because of the high hop content.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Small growler from Beer Street in Brooklyn. Pours hazy gold with a modest white head. Nose of lemons, citrus, grass, yeast. Tastes only slightly bretty. Some crisp floral hops. Well balanced, light, and refreshing. I wish I had this on tap in my house.

Aroma is a mix of tartness and sweetness. The flavor is a hard to describe malt sweetness, tart fruit and a dry finish. Kind of strange how the adjuncts mix with the Belgian ale ingredients, it was interesting.

notalush (5669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Thanks to Armin for sharing - turbid gold, fizzy but fairly well sustained head - light mineral in the nose at first, floral notes, very light pineapple Brett notes, very light cobweb/dustiness - full carbon in the mouth - dry, flinty, moderate mineral - dusty, earthy yeast - mild funkiness - light lemon and sage - quite good - note quite as good as the table beer, but still very nice.

Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Milky yellow appearance with a white head. Tangy lemon, somewhat spicy, light brett aroma. Tangy, coconut, vanilla, somewhat bretty, a bit spicy, fairly fruity flavor. Pretty good.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Draft. Hazy straw gold pour, small white head, good lacing. Aroma of dusty brett, grassy/floral hops, adjuncts, lemon, cereal. Taste lightly bitter, grassy, brett, straw, mineral, corn, lemon. Dry, lively carbonation, lightly astringent/bitter finish. A fantastic session beer.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Numerous bottles. One of the absolute most drinkable, most delicious beers I’ve ever tasted. I can’t imagine a better session beer. Brett horsiness is dead on, backing up an utterly dry beer with a light but creamy body. Carbonation is perfect, even with the large fluffy white head. I don’t know what this beer could possibly do more right.

TheBeerGod (5914) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Cloudy gold pour with a tall, dense, fluffy white head. Nose is strong dusty yeast, lemony zest, barnyardy funk and earthy notes. Taste is big, dusty yeast, grass, straw, floral and earthy hops, soft spice notes, dried fruit, lemon zest and soft barnyard notes. Body is light-medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Ends with more yeast notes, dried fruit, lemon, earthy hops, dried flowers, floral hops, and grass notes. Touch of sweet during the finish as well despite being more bitter throughout.

Here’s the facts: no matter how nice a yeast you use or how many pounds of hops you put in, when you brew a beer with rice and corn, it’s gonna suck. Granted, Stillwater Premium is the least sucky of the plethora of awful corn-n-rice adjunct beers, but it still has a thin middle, an unpleasant texture, and nothing for the killer yeast strains to build upon. A noble experiment, but not a good beer.
