wedgie9 (2565) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Tasted on 10/23/12 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours hazy but bright orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick lace that clings to the side of the glass. The nose is spicy saison yeast with some nice bread and caramel malt, along with floral and grapefruit peel hops. The flavor is a bit more malt forward than expected with the spicy yeast and floral/citrus hops melding together very nicely. The body is medium with very lively, stinging carbonation, and a long citrus hops and spicy yeast finish.

IslandHaole (1204) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - APR 30, 2016
Medium/light golden color white foamy head but short-lived. Has a slightly hazy appearance due to all the tiny particulate matter floating around. Has the scent of a Belgian Ale with the expected bubblegum/allspice scents with added barnyard funk and old house dust.Has a very zesty & tangy flavor, almost surprised me with the tart, funky flavors up front, has a bit of grainy sweetness and a dusty, corner of the closet funk in the middle with a tart & citrus peel bitter follow. Better at cellar temp than cold from the fridge. More sweetness seems to come out in the follow as it warms.

Aroma: yeast, light citrus fruits, maybe some apricot, some straw, pale grain malts. Appearance: hazy, dark gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: yeast, grain and bread malts, light citrus fruits again, straw, bitter finish. Overall: decent Saison, very solid, nothing too unexpected though. Pint at Kings Arms, Bethnal Green.

ronaldtheriot (1688) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 8, 2016
Stateside Saison has a fairly thick, off-white head, a mostly hazy orange-gold appearance, some bubble streams, and lots of powdery and not-so-small tan yeast chunks, suspended, throughout. The aroma is of sugary, spiced, white bread, pears, and a bit of brettanomyces. Taste is of those elements, low bitterness, and the white pepper note becomes increasingly prominent, and a bit unpleasant, actually. Mouthfeel is medium, and Stateside Saison finishes semi-dry. RJT

GarrettB (1365) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2016
April 20th, 2014 - Saisons are flexible, fungible, and run a whole menu of flavors across the style. Stillwater Artisanal’s version tilts towards the Tripel side, in scent and taste, pushing heavy doses of yeast, appetizing and microbial. The wheat aspect in the nose is strong too, but second fiddle to the banana esters that so strongly correlate with the presence of Belgian yeasts. The carbonation is soft and accommodating, delivering more of the banana esters into the flavor, ripe and sweet, and with just the tiniest dose of sulphur, adding an interesting counterbalance. The sweetness has a delicate touch, ephemeral, and hard to pin down, and this is where I refer to the Tripel style, with its often subtle touches of banana, clove, vanilla and custard. All these are somewhere in the background of the flavor of the saison, but more like shadows or contours, leaving me, the drinker, to guess the shape.

brownaler (480) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Faint sour Belgian malt aroma. Complex notes of fruit and grain in the body that finishes with grains as well. Great saison.

Stillwater’s Stateside Saison captures the essence of so many lovely things. Malty sweetness, earthy yeast, American and New Zealand hops that are spicy, floral, and tropical. Sweet/sour, juicy/dry, funky/smooth. Stateside Saison plays with all these paradoxical dynamics. The end result is a really well-rounded Saison. So far this is the most straight-forward and predictable brew I’ve had from Stillwater, but it’s highly drinkable, thanks to its superb balance.
