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.)

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2011
Tap, Beer temple, Amsterdam, 20/09/11. Brassy yellow with a dust of haze and thick Belgian head. Wow: huge waft of aroma mingling banana, pear, botanicals, the slightest whiff of farmyard. Bright floral beast sifted finely with spice, wine gummage, esters, lemon barley, peardrop. Soft, oozing condition, parsley citrus. So drinkable, without difficulty, lightly chilled. Thing of beauty.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tap. Pours lightly hazy golden orange with a small, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is Belgian farmhouse yeast, fruity esters, straw malt, and light spicy hops. Flavor is Belgian yeast, barnyard and farmhouse notes, fruity esters, light hops and bitterness, light malt and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Really enjoy this one, had plenty of times and never rated somehow...cloudy and grassy and crisp, everything a saison should be. Lots of grass all over, grains, some chalkiness and a refreshing finish. Highly recommended.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle. It seemed like a fairly straight-forward saison. I honestly didn’t pick up any of the unique hops used. A little sweetness, a little funk and fine overall.

cheap (5309) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2011
On tap at the vintage estate, nice eye candy. Creamy thin head. Slight tart aroma. Very unique, almost but not, creamy flavor thing going on here, yeh. Slight unsour vinegar if thats possible. No farmy thing consideraing its a saison. Has a tad of a wine thing riding in the background. Finish a tad bitter but short.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2011
On tap at Vintage Estate. Pours a nice clear gold with a fluffy head. Nose reveals aromas of spice (clove) and malt (honey/biscuit) with a bit of an odd edge to it that comes through quite strong in the flavor. Flavor is a nice balance of malty sweetness and yeasty flavors that manifest themselves as spicy (clove and white pepper?) with an odd presence that I can best describe as a sage and maybe rosemary type thing. It is definitely yeasty, and fairly interesting. It definitely intrigued me and I will be back to check in it in the future.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bomber. Deep golden body. Fizzy white head, mostly lasting. Aroma of toasted grain, plastic and a hint of clove. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Taste of lacquer and plastic. Maybe it was because I had this beer after having had a Saison DuPont. But this was a big disappointment. Little nuance, off flavors, thin, watery body, lifeless and flabby in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 aromatic and flavorful. yeast, rustic farmhouse funk, good grassy earthy fruit flavors and aromas. herbal hops leaves floral aromas in the nose while drinking. clean finish, medium body in the mouth; crisp and clean yet satisfying.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Description said that it was made with "Sage" - Pours a beautiful golden amber in color with a fairly big bright white head that stuck around to produce some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite herbal... sage and other unknowns. Some tartness from the yeast. Flavor is pretty typical of a Saison, but the strong herbal flavor of the sage makes this both unique and very good. The sage/herbs are lingering into the finish. This beer would be excellent with a poultry dinner or sandwich!
