4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Gusher. Pours a hazy straw color with a large pillowy white head. Good head retention. Lots of brett in the aroma with bright citrus notes and a faintly sweet bready finish. The taste is citrus, brett, earthy notes, bready malts and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Several bottles at Ginger Man. The aroma has a lot of bright Brett character. Dry and flinty with a lot of bright pineapple character and some bright fruit and a little bit of soft light fruit. There is a touch of soft sweetness on the back that I didn’t expect but kind of works. Lemony and fresh with a lot of light flinty flavour. Tasty.

Smells outstanding! Definite wild ale smell. Pours murky yellow with thick, beautiful head. Tastes clean and crisp, with bitter notes, and a mildly sweet. Very well balanced. Slightly sticky finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap and listed as stillwater premium pilsner so I guess this is where she goes. From the start this was a really fun beer. Cloudy almost white perhaps light vanilla color. The bar called it a pilsner and its listed as a specialty grain but I think its a saison. Very uncivilized and farmy all over. Funky back yard after a green grass rain overwhelms. Quite entertaining fer sure. This was an unexpected pleasure floating around in a sesspool of ipa taps, wew. Easy and friendly finish, just the right amount of tartness to make you wonder if it was there or not. Yes, overall fun beer experience, thanks!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a fluffy white head. Light to medium bodied with heavy carbonation. A lot of Belgian yeast and Brett on the palate. Clean, fresh finish. I’d like pilsner a lot more with Brett.

Very pale golden yellow, enormous puffy rocky white foam that takes forever and a day to settle out. Aroma is fruity, light corn, grainy, and a slight brett dryness. Taste is sweeter, light florals and fruit, biscuity, if I sip the foam I get that Orval type brett must, but in the liquid I only get light pineapple. This is so good I just wish they left the ’Post Prohibition’ descriptor out because this isn’t a Pilsner, it is a light Belgian ale or saison.
