3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
