A self-proclaimed "post-prohibition" ale, Classique is ridiculous in all the right ways. The corn, rice, and pils malt give this beer a cereal grain aroma and malty sweetness. It would play out like a lame joke if it weren’t for the earthy and lightly dank yeast and floral hops. There’s a hint of peppery spice, and the carbonation is lively. The combination of American-style swill and Belgian-style yeast should be a novelty at best. Somehow, Stillwater has managed to make this a delightfully weird and tasty low-ABV brew. This a brewery that loves to experiment, and so far I’m loving the results.

Can pours somewhat hazy golden with a large billowing white head and active bubbles. Aroma is grainy and floral, touch of hay. Flavor is excellent, dry and crisp, floral hops lending a medium bitterness, crisp, clean finish. Perfect medium light feel, lively carbonation, very drinkable. Very good.

Twelve ounce can for $1.35. Translucent gold pour with a large white head. Aroma is very pleasant and consists sweet flowers, some clove, and some bubblegum. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly tart, and slightly peppery spicy. This is a nice one at a great price.

Pours light pale yellow with a sturdy white head. The aroma has fruity Belgian traits, mild sweetness, grapes, apricot, bubblegum and light funk. Light crisp refreshing body with a bit of lively carbonation. The flavor starts with mild maltiness, apriocots/peaches, spice, earth, bugs and some cellar must. The finish has lots of pepperiness, brett-like bugginess and a thrist quenching snappiness. It would be real easy to drink a lot of these & at 4.5% I can’t do it without running into trouble quickly. Another winner from Stillwater. Love that this is now in 6 pack cans instead of the everything being in bombers.

12oz can, from Party Source. Almost entirely hazy bright yellow color. GOod bigger white head fades to a nice thin amount. Leaves good lace. Great big grassy and citrusy hop nose. Light spice. Light bready malt profile. A very bright beer overall. Medium body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Nice lightly dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, good zestiness. This is a delicious, refreshing, smooth beer. Satisfyingly hoppy, but there’s much more to it than that. Impressively complex, especially considering the light ABV.

A bright and light yellow with lots of bubbles. Aroma is potpourri and I get herbal notes and vanilla in the taste. Taste lingers pleasantly. Flowery as well.

Big foamy head that vanishes. Yellow and fizzy. Nice Saison aroma. Pronounced hoppy bitterness. very thin body. Kind of crazy getting good beer like this from a can. Pretty dang good. I got one for you Mike!

Can. Pours very light pale hazy yellow with a billowy white head. Aroma is a touch gummy with wheat, some light citrus and hints of spice coming through. A touch peppery and lemony. Flavor starts with a bursting citrus character, quite hoppier than expected but it a good way, giving way to the lighter spice and doughy notes in a clean crisp finish. Light to medium body and a crisp carbonation. Excellent "americanized" version of the style without being all hops.

Poured from a can with a huge thick foamy head. The aroma is fantastic. The flavor is slightly sour/tart and very light with a mildly bitter finish. It’s a pretty good session beer.

Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is lovely - soft and spicy with a lean malt dryness. A bit of peppery character and a bit of light fruitiness. Zesty and a bit flinty. Nice and dry with some lingering bitterness.
