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.)

JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2011
Appearance: bright gold with a ridiculous white head that is huge, fluffy, and the exact texture of meringue and lasts forever leaving lots of lace. Aroma: funk up front (but not overpowering), with definite notes of spices and light fruit, and a strong herb garden presence. Taste: all the traditional saison flavors are there: spice, must, a light funk, some sweetish peach; however, this is more bitter than the European take, with assertive hops. Finish: spices and funk fading to a lingering herbal bitterness. Notes: Great American take on the style. Absolutely beautiful beer, with a nose full of big flavors that are pretty complimentary. Palate was perfect. While I appreciated the hoppy American influence, it was just a whisper too bitter to rate perfection. I’d still drink this any time.

750 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of ripe mango, banana, peaches and perfume. Flavor is sweet, ripe fruit, peaches, mango, citric with spices and yeast. Balanced bitterness and body feels almost fat. Interesting and nice beer, very American interpretation of saison.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bottle… Murky peach-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The spicy, fruity bouquet provides spicy coriander and baked apples with clove and cinnamon sprinkled on. Medium-bodied with spritzy, airy carbonation. The overall flavor is balanced and spicy with moderate bitterness. Short, crisp, spicy finish.

Bottle shared by MatSciGuy. Light yellow pour, a little carbonation and lasting lacing with a light lemon aroma. Flavor is effervescent light lemon, biscuits and finished light on the aftertaste. Would be great for a hot summer day.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2011
Bottle, 75cl, at Patricks. An unclear, golden orange beer with a small, white head. Lovely aroma with lots of fruits, banana, melon, peaches, overripe apples and some mango. Malty sugars and a touch of alcohol blends in. Grapefruity hops. The flavor is very close to the aroma. More focused on the hops, a pleasant bitterness going on, and slightly yeasty. Full body, sort of oily and rather smooth. Lasting finish with enough bitterness to balance it. A pleasant American style saison I hope to have again. 110407

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/copper with a thin, white head. Aroma of light fruits, bread, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with the above-average carbonation and fruitiness combining to make this a unique beer. Average texture. A pretty good saison.
