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. Itís 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.)

750ml shared by Turdferguson - thanks, Sam! Pour was nice, an inviting deep gold with modest sediment and a thick rocky head. Nose was a bit more malty than expected, which was initially disconcerting. The impression deepened with a fairly uninspiring flavor that had hints of tartness, and was at times even too sugary. Something wasnít coming together. Subsequently tried a second time - bottle from Samís in Durham - and was much happier, as the brew was far more dry and Dupont-like. Bottom line: above average American saison (but pricey).

JoeinDahlem (1440) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2010
Golden amber, toasty, malty, crisply hopped. But of sweetness and alcohol heat, but overall dryish, drinkable and tasty. Fruity yeasty esters are relatively restrained, compared to other US-made Belgian-inspired beers, but could be more so. Appreciated the beer more when paired with corn tortellini at Birch & Barley. Among the better US-made saisons Iíve had. Iím afraid thatís not saying much.

My friend Ben brought three of these back from Baltimore for me -- heís the man. Golden orange pour, full off-white head. Aggressive nose of clementine orange peel and coriander, also biscuit and very subtle hints of mustiness. Somewhat sticky, clearly in the >6 ABV domain rather than lower and in more traditional saison territory. The flavor brings out the biscuity malts which are excellent, again that mandarin peel and coriander. Pretty strong hop close pushing rich hop oils late. I see this as one of the better American saisons Iíve had, though not my favorite interpretation of saison. A lot rests on how this one will age, Iíd say. If it mellows and brings out the dusty character, itíll be a winner. As it stands now, I feel that Iím being generous with a 3.8.

Sampled at the Hawaiíi Admission Day tasting. Pours a brass color with big whitish head. The aroma is spicy with white pepper, lemongrass, and a subtle honeyish floral note. The flavor is slight sweet earthiness, black pepper, sage, and a hint of cumin. It leaves a very floral aftertaste. Quite good.
