NOTF ’10 Hazy Orange/brown pour. Aroma is funky wood, a nice blend of brett and saison yeast. Tannins remain very light, letting the beer shine through in a funky, yeasty flavor that is quite delicious. Really glad I stopped in at this station

Imp pint glass at Max’s on Broadway, Baltimore. Beautiful hoppy, barnyard aromas...just funky enough to get me excited. The palate was a godsend of crisp floral undertones with a nice blend of sour-citrus and musty pine. Ran home after to find out more about this brewer...very well done.

20100213 Cask at Max’s BBF, Stillwater release party,etc. Deep orange color with solid, lasting beige head of thick froth. Aroma is vinous, grapey, juicy fruit, honey, light young oak. I was pleased that the oak presence in this one did not overwhelm with copious vanilla or ghastly buttery notes. Instead it complemented nicely with the springtime fruitiness of the hops, melding for a soft cooked peach or apricot essence. Soft palate, slightly thinner, more approachable than the un-oaked version, with brisk finishing hop bitterness. Tons of yeast throughout pleasantly adds to the experience, also nicely incorporated. Nice example of well applied oak improving an already excellent beer.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2010 Cask at the release party. Thick, practically opaque orange tan. Lots of lace. Creamy and smooth malt tones along a super solid, yet subdued, hop presence. Perfect balance. Delicately intense mouthfeel. Nails the style, perhaps one of the Best US examples out there. Right on.
