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.)

MrBunn (2727) - 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 (2544) - 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) - Barre, Vermont, 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!

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2011
bottle pours an orangey gold with big, fluffy off white head. Aroma has a touch of lemon, a bready yeast presence which is slightly tart, sweet spices, lavender perhaps. This saison has an especially bright, zesty feel while being tempered by a nice yeast presence, a little funk balanced by sweet spices on a lingering finish, which evidences chamomile, lavender. Although there is a lavender component to this beer it is not overdone like in alot of american saisons. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation. I have to say I am very fond of Stillwater’s take on the saison - they really have it down, unique, refreshing renditions that still adhere to the tradition of the style. I think I may have liked the cellar door a bit better, but this was pretty stellar - the perfect go to session for any occasion. A big thanks to mansquito for this one.

On tap at Haymarket. Pours cloudy golden light orange with white head. Aroma is earthy, yeast, citrus, and grass. Flavors of citrus, spice, herbal notes, bit of earth, and some bready malts. Mouthfeel is a little light. Solid.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2011
Once again I must throw some credit in the back for the excellent lablework. Stillwaters lables rocks period. This beauty is a 750 ml bottle from Ølbutikken in Copenhagen. The pour is a deep shady orange with a huge snow white frothe head that slowly fades a little with a fizzy sound. nice. The nose is dominated of a bitter earthly yeast flavour crossed with some faint tropical notes as from pineapple, peach and apricots. A sparkling mouthfeel with a mild creamyness leading to a bitter finish. The taste is fine and balanced with some barnyard and earthy flavour along with a fine hopping. Pretty high carbonated and it makes my burb a little, but this is for sure a nice beer.
