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

Tap at Max’s Taphouse. Pours lightly hazy pale orange with a large, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy and barnyard yeast with citrus hops, fruity esters and Pils malt. Flavor is malt forward with heavy hops and medium bitterness, tropical fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

bottle. Pale straw with one finger head. The story on the bottle would lead you to believe that a flavor explosion is about to happen, but then I take a sip and am severely underwhelmed. It’s just bland in every way. So much so, I can’t even identify what style this is supposed to be.

Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head crackles and recedes leaving no lacing. Heather and hay aromas. Crisp with bread, sweet grass, summer flowers and fruits front to back.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
A bit of an oddball overall. Pours a beautiful glowing golden orange with a general haziness and a dense off white head. The nose is zesty and fruity with light floral and grassy hop aromas. Mild honey and caramel malts upfront with a lack of toasted or roasted malts. Quite floral and fruity with hints of orange and citrus along with white flowers and hibiscus. A bit bitter on the finish with lots of grassy and citrus hops. Light hibiscus pervades the aftertaste with a lingering farmhouse flavour. Overall an interesting twist on a saison perhaps.

bwa5879 (541) - Portage, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Really pale brown/yellow pour that’s super cloudy, 3 inches of white head. Has the appearance of raw honey. Scent of light belgian yeasts - pepper and soap notes, and tons of floral hops, very strong and cottony. Somewhat high carbonation, clean finish. Flavor at first is a very very well rounded blend of light belgian soapy yeasts and tons of hops, citrus and floral: tastes of lemon, pear, fresh grass, cracked pepper. Taste abruptly changes to pepper and carbon on finish.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Poured from a 375ml bottle. Slightly gushing upon opening. Pours light golden with a soft pink hue, enormous white head. The aroma is dry and grainy. Soft notes of berries. The flavor is crisp pilsner malts, soft fruitiness-berries, dry. High level of carbonation make this very dry. Okay.

Bottle. Pours a light burnt golden color with a soft medium head. Nose is yeasty, champagne like, spicy and floral and quite pleasant. Taste is citrusy, and yeasty and tastes more like a saison. Finishes on the same tasting notes , and ends with a champagne sparkle. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10
