COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)

Bottle from Rileys in Madison.make for a floral and herbal taste combination that is interesting and different. Not great taste, but sippable and unique. Great generous retained head. Tad above average mouthfeel.

Tap at Maxs of Fells Point. The pour is a cloudy, glowing straw. Looks like witbier. Nose is cidery with yellow apple. Taste is sugary yellow apple, chamomile, weird medicinal characters with lots of cider character overlain. Big carbonation. Could be mistaken for cider.

Had this at TArendsnest, Amsterdam, Netherlands 29.09.11. Forgotten if on tap or bottle but I would guess the latter. Quite scented and a big bunch of dried flowers going on in the mouth with lavender and loads of other stuff. Pours hazy amber with slim white head, quite intense on the floralness, its not bad by any stretch but not totally my thing if truth be known. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Pours a fizzy off-white head with an amber body that has some particulates. Aromas of lemon, grass, five-alive, slightly wild. Flavors are much the same with little medicinal quality. Finish is slightly bitter, a little dry, lasting wildness.

ngeunit1 (1555) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 28, 2011
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head hangs around for quite some time, leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet and floral yeasts and herbal notes. There is also some grain and a bit of lemon, spices, and pepper. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet yeast and some nice floral flavors alongside some yeast. Through the middle the spices kick in a bit and the floral flavors get a bit stronger. Some light spices jump in as well. The finish is a mix of yeast, grain, pepper, and floral flavors that linger. M - Medium bodied with lively carbonation. It feels smooth and dry on the tongue. D - Very drinkable. Really nice floral elements really blend nicely with the rest of the beer. Some of the other flavors could have been a bit stronger though.

ekoerper (599) - Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Big spicy nose, lots of chamomile, orange, and the lavender borders on overpowering. Some hop aromas may be lurking in the background, but the spices drone out most other scents. Pours a murky golden, massive white head with great retention, clumpy lacing. Flavor follows the nose, with some more of the malt and hops coming through. First some saison funkiness, and lots of chamomile and lavender, some light malts and spicy hops, lots of pepper. Light body, effervescent, high carbonation, nice dry finish.
