Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 6, 2013
Würziger, getreidig säuerlicher Antrunk. Wenig hopfig, deutlich bitter werdend. Die Bitterkeit steigt noch, das Bier wird trocken. Die Getreidigkeit lässt dabei nach, die Säuerlichkeit nimmt ebenfalls ab. Starke Karbonisierung. Zitrus, grasig. 13/11/8/11/11/11

rbrazell (1452) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from Proof. Very light clear yellow pour with a foamy white head. Pale malty aroma, zesty citrus, floral and grass notes. Fruity hops, slight funk and starchy malt. Light bodied and easy drinking. Not bad.

HonusWagner (1230) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Fascinating golden yellow pour with nice head. Especially cool looking with the yeast poured in. Aroma is very brett forward with notes of peaches and a slight noble hop character. Flavor follows, bretty, light spice, a bit grainy, and peachiness. Only demerit is a bitter/astringent quality that is a bit much in a beer with such delicate flavors. Excellent stuff otherwise.

Yellow pour with a large white head. The aroma has some biscuit malt, grass and light citrus notes. The flavor is full of grain, biscuit malt and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

JAXSON (524) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2013
I never even heard of this beer before our tasting yesterday. Pours a bright peach with a white head. Nose is super bright and rife with tropical fruits, cumquat, passion fruit. Light brett yeast and just a really nice bright expression of grain, fruits, and yeast. Flavors are more tropical fruits, rally dry but superbly integrated. A musty funk note starts to swell up in the finish. Barrel integration is fantastic and typical of Stillwater’s best beers in this style. Carbonation is high and champagne like. One of the most surprisingly great American beers I’ve had in some time.

Glowing, radiant yellow with a mass of carbonation making an exodus to the surface. A big pillowy head. Aroma: wow, heavy horseblanket yeast, very farmhouse/saison. A puckery sourness, like lemon juice or even a mild white vinegar. There is an accent of a flowery hop, but it’s definitely a secondary whiff. Again, and incredibly sour flavor, almost akin to a gueuze. There is a very pungent, puckery aftertaste. The sourness is borderline overwhelming. Leaves a dry, bready aftertaste,basically like a gueuze. I was expecting a little bit of a horsey quality to it, but make no mistake, this is a gueuze.
