COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Stillwater Sensory Series is a collaboration between Stillwater Artisanal and singular musical artists. In this first collaboration, Stillwater works with Lower Dens to make an ale based on an interpretation of their song, "In the End is the Beginning." On the bottle itself, a QR code will link to an exclusive Lower Dens performance of the song. Ultimately, this is a true artistic collaboration that aims to create a full sensory experience - sound, sight, smell, touch, and taste. www.stillwatersensory.com

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JUN 25, 2013
375ml bottle served in a tulip. Poured a hazy gold with a couple of fingers of white head. Plenty of carbonation. Yeasty aroma with some Belgian spice. Light bodied, dry with a crisp finish. Bit of spice on the finish. Solid saison, but nothing mindblowing.

sunevdj (3846) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
On tap at CBC 2013. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Light fruity aromas of apples and bananas. Also hints of Belgian yeast. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry finish.

ciocanelu (910) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 23, 2015
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh, lemony and a bit spicy. Taste seems slightly tart at first but it isn’t, just a bit astringent. It’s mostly spicy, yeasty and slightly bitter on the finish. Body is medium-light with high effervescence. Overall I don’t like it very much, the spices are a bit too strong, the body too light and there is some residual sweetness that doesn’t integrate very well.

UncleKorm (1176) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle poured a slightly hazy golden hue w/ large creamy white head. Moderate funky citrus aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are kiwi, hay and funk. Light bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1926) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 28, 2015
375 ml. bottle shared with my Boo; from Liquor Barn (Springhurst). Aroma: Moderate lemon peel with light wildflower presence balanced by a little musty basement. Appearance: Opaque yellow gold pour with a foamy white tuft that settles into a firm skin. Flavor: Musty and floral notes are more prevalent up front, but in a more muted way. Lemon comes in more midway through, and takes on an unexpected honey character; the finish is semi-dry and endures a bit. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Not a world beater, but a nice enough one to try either way. Not sure what hibiscus does here.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2015
Rating #1176 13.07.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Pours the colour of a bubbly golden ale with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is orange zest, and hibiscus flower. Extremely floral and potent. This floral sweetness lingers into the finish and is slightly overpowering. Cool tropical, floral beer. I tried it with the song playing - i don’t feel it added to aromatic or palate experience but it’s a fun concept.

varanid99 (918) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2015
Orange/gold pour with a decent puffy white head. Wheaty, herby, floral and yeasty notes. Taste is wheat-beerish, yeasty, slightly sour, floral (which I assume is hibiscus, don’t think I’ve ever tasted it though). Finishes with that sour yeasty note. I don’t love it but it’s interesting I guess.

Renobob (1563) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 375ml. Blonde claire. Nez floral léger, bel équilibre au palais, douceur, pointe maltée et cité herbeux bien présent. Agréable.

freretoc (1519) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 28, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 37.5 ou 50 cl ? Bref le format de base. Couleur blonde, peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence. Grosse attaque sur la fleur blanche au nez, sensation de douce effluves d’hibiscus. Attaque en goût sur la même teneur que le nez avec une pointe de malt caramélisée. Juste un bon équilibre pour une bière bien ronde en bouche.

drfabulous (6031) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 17, 2015
375 ml bottle. Hazy orange pour. Light and bubbly. Not a big taste of brett in nose or body. Slightly yeasty.

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2015
375 ml bottle. Ridiculous big frothy head on pale yellow body. Strong alcohol herb aromas, quite sweet finish. Bit over carbonated I reckon.
