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)

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a thin-moderate white head. Pleasant floral aroma along with some black pepper, orange and a bit of yeast. The flavor is a combination of malt, herbs, black pepper, lemon, and yeast. Dries out a bit towards the finish. Nice.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle: Dark straw, very dirty and cloudy, moderate to large rocky off-white head, little lacing. Aromatic musty nose, barnish, sweet spices are strong, chamomile and lavender for sure. Smells pretty dang awesome! A bright barnish start, with a strong yet dull floral spiciness. This is not only different, but very interesting. Smooth, body seems full. Nice exit with sweet floral notes, spices, and just a whole lot of goodness. Fresh spring meadow is right. I could really drink this shit up in the Spring.... Summer, Fall, or Winter. Great stuff!

Hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Herbal aroma of chamomile and grain. Similar taste with the herbs leaning toward sage and rosemary flavors. Really good.

Damico (3145) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2011
It smells sweet and citrusy with some Belgian yeast funk. It pours dark orange golden with a huge white head on top. There are notes of orange with herb flavors from all of the spring botanicals added. This is on top of a sweet almost syrup body, delicious.

GTAEgeek (2053) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold with a large khaki head. The aroma is heavy citrus, cut grass, banana esters, and a little dough and funk. The flavor is sweet and a little tart up front, mellow bitterness and spiciness in the middle, and a mild bitter finish. The palate is light, crisp and effervescent. Overall, a very interesting beer, with lots of layers. Easy to drink, and yet complex.
