Starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

(750ml bottle from Total Wine Tempe). Pour cloudy yellow-orange with a white head. Aroma has sage, lemon and some wheat. Taste is sweet that follows the aroma. After having Saison Du Buff I was concerned that the sage would be overpowering, but they use finesse here. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Light bitter finish. Nice job with using the sage and balancing it with the saison characteristics.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2011. Cloudy golden, small head. Fruity sage aroma. Sweet and fruity, above medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some syrup and green apples. Low bitterness. Quite American in its approach.

Very bright yellow with a big pure white head. To smell this beer is to smell a soapy yeast cake. Hmmm.. Dawn Dish Soap and yeast mixed with some spices. It sounds like a bad thing, but it is a familiar and expected aroma with this type of beer. Not off-putting at all. Flavor is clean, simple, and still remains interesting. Citrusy, yeasty, lemony. Crisp, dry, finish which I really enjoy. An awesome summer beer with amazing drinkability.

Scopey (16226) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
Keg at Craft Beer Co. It pours light straw yellow, with a very thick, foamy white head. The nose is ginger, zesty lemon, hay and white bread. The taste is hay, grass, lemon, grapefruit, fiery ginger, pepper, herbal, metal, white bread and butter, with a bitter-dry finish. A decent enough saison, but doesn’t stand out from the crowd.

On tap at Poor Phil’s... Dark murky honey gold, a nice off white head, creamy, lasting... Floral hops, strong, a bit of soap, herbal lots of aloe or eucalyptus, don’t like that... Much sweeter than I thought it would be, most of floral musk is gone, spicy aloe... Ok tasting but easy to drink

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Bottle:   Cloudy straw, a little dark, on the orange side, large foamy head, nice lacing.   Nice bright floral nose, soft barnish and musty/basement notes.   This smells purdy good.   Floral on the tongue, a little mealy.   Also dusty.   Good, but wished it to be less mealy.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Dull, but strong, floral notes on the exit.   Also a bit of citrus zest, candied if you wil.   Pretty damn good stuff.

Terminus (3739) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2011
bottle-pours lite orange with a small soapy white head. doesnt look like the stateside really. noes of spicy hops, lite funky esters (brett, lemons, lite barnyard character), woody, organic (shovled earth). flavors exhibit the spicy hops and the nice yeast twang going on-one of the best of this combination of yeast and hops. again, spritzy body like stateside but it works here. it adds to boosting the hop profile on the palate. the earthy hops come out huge in the finish. a very nice american twisted saison here that is full of flavors. They need to bottle and distribute more Stillwater stuff.
