For the first edition of the Stillwater Import Series I traveled to the village of Beerzel, located in the Antwerp province of Belgium. Here I teamed up with brewmaster Jef Goetelen to craft an authentic Belgian version of my liquid interpretation of the Spring season. A recipe originally contrived a few years prior as a collaboration brew with my good friend Paul Kretzer. The base is German barley & wheat, with a touch of Belgian aromatic; accented with grassy hops and an array of spring botanicals (heather, chamomile, lavender, & dandelion). Like a fresh meadow in spring. (now currently brewed at Two Roads in CT)

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Hazed dark golden color with a taller beige head. Dried herds and flowers in the aroma, along with a good dose of yeast and dough. Hints of allspice and cloves, with a lavender backdrop. Slowly the malt comes forward. Light sweet marshmallow flavors if rather quickly interrupted by a the herbal undertones. Lots of lavender on the tongue. I somehow fell I have just given a message and am now licking my hands. A bit too overbearing in the flavors. 2/11

krumbum (1073) - truckee, California, USA - APR 28, 2016
A deep orange hazy unable to see through it. Very active lasting head. A herbal tartness lays over aromatic Woody hops in the smell. So smooth the soft herbs coat your tongue all taking their turn to make a quick appearance but then blend back into the whole. Soft and velvet on the palate.

A murky dark amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light candy sugar with light oxidation, treacle, light cherry and cinnamon notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light candy sugar, cherries, lactic acid, alcohol warmth, nice, if a bit tired.
