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.)

On cask at Max’s Belgian beer fest 2010, and got to thank Brian in person for brewing such a great beer. Opaque orange color with a thin head, obviously unfiltered. Amazing flowery hop aroma, smells like wheat, fresh thai basil and oranges. Extremely dry, with pleasant bitterness and yeasty, herbal flavor. An awesome beer, reminds me a bit of Jandrain-Jandrenouille IV.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2010 Brian brought a few bottles of this lovely saison to an early release in NYC. The beer is deliciously fruity, lightly funky, definitely more in the Fantome vein than Dupont, but not nearly as hefty or wild, and showcasing some lovely hops. There is a lot of passionfruit and starfruit character, but it is not very sweet at all. The New Zealand hops balance things out perfectly. Very tasty stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 Tap at Max’s of Baltimore. Tried about 3-4 crazy awesome beers from Brian from Stillwater. But this is the only one in the database I tried! Pours a glowing hazy neon light orange with a small white head. Dry hop nose with potpourri, orange peel, white grape skins. Taste is hop forward with nice dry citrus, white pepper, dirty yeast. Nails the style! Why can’t more people (even Fantome sometimes) make a proper saison!? 2/14/2010 8/4/8/4/15=3.9

Cask at Paradiso Dupont. The cask has done nothing for this saison and actually has ruined it. The pour was very good- excellent head from the spritzer: a reverse cascade, yellow custard head forms gradually and sticks around for quite awhile. The cask has given this beer a soft, buttery, silky mouthfeel but taken away everything else: funk, hops, lemon, citrus. What remains is a big oatmeal grain English cask bitter with some sweet cherries perhaps and a cardboardy finish. Pretty mediocre. 1/13/2011 ~3.0

Orange yellow pour, very hazy with a thin white head. Aroma dominated by hops. Lots of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Initial touch of sweetness when the beer first hits the tongue but quickly dominated by a very dry, dusty malt flavor. Lot of bitter hops to finish with citrus and pine.

Dry-hopped Cask @ Max’s. Fruity hoppy nose with citrus and definite white wine notes from the Nelsons. Beer is well attenuated, with some lightly doughy malts, a bit of honey. Fairly yeasty, but some of that is just because this is a cask offering. The yeast is lightly peppery, a touch of fruit and some hay/cobwebs. Finishes quite dry with good amount of bitterness. This is really a special beer. Much more in line with what you’d expect from Belgium (though the hops are definitely not traditional) than the overly sweet/spiced saisons that dominate the US scene. Lovely stuff. Great work Brian.
