COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stateside Saison pays homage to old world tradition while celebrating new world innovation. Naturally brewed with the finest European malts & fresh aromatic hops from the United States & New Zealand. It’s then fermented using a classic farmhouse ale yeast and bottle conditioned to enhance stability. The outcome is a beer of unique design and exquisite taste, showcasing some of the best attributes of modern-day craft brewing. (Brewed by Stillwater @ DOG Brewing Co.)

Temptation (220) - - MAY 17, 2014
I love saison, I love these refreshing, crispy, tasty beers with a wild and rural touch. This one is a perfect example, adding a complexity which is usually hard to find in the style. Yeasty aroma, orange peel and herbs like anisette too. Mouthfeel with crispy notes to yeast and spices. Great overall. An extraordinary saison, delicious.

islay (1057) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-11-14. "Bottled 01/07/14." Dry, herbal aroma features scents of champagne, peach, apricot, "Christmas," pine, salt, lemon, tonic water, and seltzer. Quite good and complex saison smell. Poured in two halves. First half is a clear, effervescent gold with a small to moderate amount of beige head. Bright but rather ordinary in appearance. Second half is a hazy tannish brass with longer-lasting and more substantial looking head. Pleasant appearance but not outstanding. Herbal, dry flavor features touches of honey and cream. Lemon and lemon peel elements. Slightly floral and spicily dry. Juicy yeastiness. Dry finish. Good, enjoyable flavor. Light, dull, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Lively, soft, and filling in the palate. Perhaps excessively filling. Nice palate but not great. Stillwater Artisinal Stateside Saison is a good beer overall and strong across the board. It is aromatic, tasty, complex, substantial, and well made. Quite enjoyable.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Clear honey gold wifh a big soapy off white head. Smells like a saison with yeast and malts. Those flavors with a bit of spice. Hops are Noble and are just right. Some honey.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Gold, lightly effervescent with a short white head. Honey-ish melanoidin-like malt in the nose is overrun by fruity apple / pear / grape juice esters and offending plastic, dried banana and corn whiskey notes. The body is light and the quickly-effervescing carbonation suits well the up-front sweetness, though it seems too sweet across the middle and too bitter in the finish. The quenching effect is nice, but that sweet-bitter play along with the ambient pear / grape juice / paint thinner quality limits this one for me.

12 oz. bottle at Mellow Mushroom, Charleston. Poured a dark gold with off white head. Nice lacing. Yeasty, peppery, citrusy. Spicy finish.

Juelze (1137) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours a golden color with thin white head. Aroma is light white pepper, lemon, clove, and notes of Belgian spice. Taste is more light lemon, clove yeast, and light peppery notes. Lightly carbonated. Pretty solid.

peppery, slightly tart, funky nose. Light hoppy mouth with lots of lemon and peppery. Clean and refreshing. Dry hoppy finish. Very nice.
