My first Stillwater beer, not going to be my last. Hazy pale golden pour with an active fizzy, fluffy, huge white head. Effervescent, lively, maybe a little overcarbonated. Yeasty aroma with a presence of hops moreso than most saisons, some spice/pepper, lemon citrus. Begins bready malty, little bit sweet, then the hops and beautiful saison flavors emerge, lemon, grass, straw, herbal, etc,etc. This is one of the better American brewed saisons that I have tried. I can’t wait to try some more of Stillwater’s beers.

blankboy (6286) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2011
Draught at The Blue Monk, Buffalo, NY. Pours a clear bubbly orange with a small lasting white head. Mild but nice aroma of yeast along with spices, herbs and some citrus fruit. Flavour of yeast, light spices & herbs, caramel malt and some light hops. Average bodied. Very good, not world class but still a pleasure to drink.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
Beautiful cloudy, almost opaque dark golden pour veering toward orange covered by a Belgian stunningly rocky head, constantly fed by whirlwinds of bubbliness underneath. Complex and charming nose: bursting phenolic, peppery yeast climbs over vigorous lemon while floral, tropical fruity hops abandon themselves to the hay-like, earthy countryside aromas. In mouth, its texture is authentic where tighter than average bubbles bite the tongue and accentuate the peppery character while juicy citrus fruits (tangerine, lemon rind) are its dominant aspect. Less impressive on the palate than in the nose, but nevertheless a most competent example, one of the best in the USA I suppose though not quite as likeable as Odonata to me. Pretty good attenuation. Perhaps a touch more estery than I prefer with its unripe passionfruit/banana notes combining with the herbal side into a generally green character.

jgb9348 (4859) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Very hazy golden orange coloured body with a thick, fast-dying off-white head and a very cloudy appearance - nice! Great aroma of honey, pine, hay, grass, yeast, wheat and a touch of coriander seed. Light to Medium-bodied; Sweet honey flavour at first that fades to a bright and assertive hay and grass flavour with some large yeast tastes and potent alcohol kick at the end. Aftertaste shows a good fresh barnyardie type flavour with some hay, coriander seed, wheat and honey all thrown in. Overall, a good saison - not amazing, but pretty good from an American brewer and definitely nice to have locally. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Logan Circle), DC on 29-October-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 14-January-2011.
