05/03/2011 - 75cl bottle @ Alvinne Craft Beer Festival (2011-79) Thanks to Brian for the sample!

Little cloudy orange yellow beer, white creamy head. Aroma: citrus, some pineapple, little yeast. Taste: very fruity, pineapple, some sour apple, hops and yeast. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Aftertaste: little sour, some hops, nice dry finish. Really good beer. I can see why Brian calls it "the flagship" of his brewery.

Bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet yeast citrus flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Pours a clear yellow with and intense white head. Effervescent texture and a surprising orange flavor. A touch of sweetness working throughout. Champagne like aroma and a little funky. Decent drink.

beernbourbon (1300) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Pour is hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is chamomile, grapefruit, light spice, faint hop, and light hay. Flavor is also chamomile, light spice, light hay and a faint yeasty finish. This is my least favorite of the stillwater series, but still very good. Solid with a rich full body.

750 ml. bottle from Bottleworks. Welcome to Washington, Stillwater! Anyways, this doesnít have much of a head on it. The body has a hazy orange color. A little citrus, lemon, yeast, and sugar hit my nose. It seems to me to be more like a Tripel, aroma-wise. Itís not as carbonated as I thought it would be. Iím used to Saisons having a crisp texture, but this, again, seems to me to be more like a Tripel. At first, I get a subtle sharp citrus lemon flavor that quickly fades away. After that, the yeast and sugar dominate, and a subtle hop flavor lingers. Itís not the most exciting thing in the world. I had Cellar Door and another one of their brews while in Portland, and I was more impressed. I would have liked this beer to a be a bit more effervescent, but I canít have it all. Overall, itís decent, but I was expecting more, given what Iíve had of theirs in the past.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours hazy orange with a dense off-white head. The aroma has nectar fruits, saison earthiness, some chalk, mellow spice and hops - full aroma with a gentleness to it. Medium body with mouth filling frothy carbonation. The flavor starts off with dry saison yeatiness, dry lightly toasted malt, crackers, spicy hops and dry fruitiness. The finish is like a cross between a saison and an IPA with the spicy and piny hops. Solid saison.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Poured into a tulip. 4.0 A: Lightly hazed dark orange color. Three fingers of off-white creamy/frothy hybrid head. Great retention and moderate amounts of spotty lacing. 3.5 S: Overall pretty dry with a lemony grassiness. Musty basement and cracker malts. As it warms, there a touch of wild apple. Grassy hops, but hops are weak. Not very complex, but not bad. 4.0 T: The taste is a lot more intense than what the nose would suggest. Big hit of cracker, biscuit, and to a lesser extent bready malts. Lots a herbal spiciness in the form of rosemary, parsley, lemongrass and a beavy flowers. Again, this is very dry with wild apple like funkiness. Musky basement funkiness as well. Borderline 4.5. 3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Plenty of carbonation that isnít quite spritzy and, indeed, a bit too much. Could be creamier as well. 3.5 D: Good beer, but drinkability suffers from the vegetal component. While the herbal flavor is good for a few ounces, it gets old before the second glass. Still, the malts contribute tasty and aggressive flavors. Worth a try.

On tap at Pizza Paradiso - Georgetown. Reviewed from notes. Pours a bright golden color with a nice white head and hints of orange coloring. Pretty good lacing as it makes its way down. The nose is a bit light, but brings through some hay, orange, lemon, grain, and some light stone fruits. Hints of earth. The taste is similar, with some well integrated flavors. At the same time, thereís nothing too deep and most of the flavors are fairly subdued, failing to produce many of the hard-hitting flavors I really look for in a saison. Feel is a bit dry and well carbonated. Overall, this drinks quite well and Iím excited to see what else this new brewery produces. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-16-2010
