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)

willisread (3018) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Deep gold to orange with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Belgian yeast nose with some light herbs, grass, lemongrass and floral notes. Taste is fairly yeast-driven with some light tartness on the palate. Soft carbonation with good mouthfeel. Finish is a little short-lived. Not bad.

12 oz single bottle from Mollys Spirits. Hazy orange appearance with one finger of beige foam, mostly dissipating. The aroma is strong lavender and floral notes with toasted grain, herbs, grass, light cinnamon and a light peppery spice. Similar flavor, the adjuncts seem pretty overpowering and its hard to detect any base beer. Mild to moderate bitterness with a light dry, lingering finish. The mouth experience is a medium body with a fluffy soft feel and average carbonation. It gets a little better as it warms but its kind of hard to drink very much of this at first. It took me a while to finish. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Love And Happiness > Love Tractor, 10/13/2007, Loveland, CO

teorn88 (7425) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Backlog rating. Keg at Kings Arms tap takeover, London. It pours a clean amber color with small off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty, spicy with light yeast action, cinnamon, dried apricots. Taste has some more Belgian yest, spices, plastic, apricots, starch. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, just too sweet for a spring saison.

Maakun (4629) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2015
Brewed at t Hofbrouwerijke. Bottle at home. Gusher. Hazy amber with small off white head. Massive cinnamon up front, glhwein, bananabread, lots of caramel, raisins, some yeast. Medium sweet and light herbal biutter. Medium bodied with slick feel and under medium carbonation (even though this was quite the gusher). Spring? I dont get any spring at all, this beer tastes very close to my girlfriends glhwein, massive christmas spices here. But I actually quite enjoy it.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - JUL 24, 2015
Di bel colore ambrato; buona schiuma, di discreta persistenza. Laroma fortemente floreale e aromatico, caratterizzato da odori di lavanda su tutti; a seguire camomilla, zenzero e agrumi. Il gusto dolce di malto e miele, note floreali e un mix speziato molto variegato. Amaro molto morbido, "giusta" gradazione alcolica, frizzantezza ripulente; buon equilibrio, gradevole limpressione generale.
