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 into a New Belgium goblet. A: Pours a reddish copper color. I like the head on this one: one fingers high, offwhite shade, and superbly creamy. Retention isnt amazing, though, nor is the body itself that attractive. S: Ridiculously herbal. I wont go into detail identifying all of the notes, so Ill just say it smells like some utopian spring day. Allowing it to open up will reveal slight brett touches, as well. T: Its not as dry as I expected. Wheat malt sweetness (similar to a good dunkel) both opens and closes things - with the herbal qualities sandwiching themselves into the middle. Its fairly piny, but not in a hop-derived manner. Also sneaking into the back end are some subtle brett notes. Theres a good balance between the spice profile and the malts. If the aroma made me think of spring, the flavor makes me think Christmas for whatever reason. Ah well, good brew. M: The initial sweetness is cleaned up nicely on the finish, replaced by a prickly, lively sensation. I like the sweet/dry balance here: the sweetness simply balances out some of the potential harshness an overly dry finish could have created. Carbonation is very high, but thats expected from a saison. O: This one doesnt blow me away, however its an easily drinkable brew thats also mildly complex. Id gladly drink this again.

Dough. Earth. Fruit. Banana. Hazy yellow gold. Milky foamy white headthat quickly recedes to a layer of dense foam that stays forever. Thick mouthfeel. Earthy. Herbs and spice. Clove and banana. Kind of like a weak Tripel.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2017
355ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral with some light fruits, grass and mild spices. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy, spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a well crafted brew that suits the style well. Recommended.

Herbs, yeast, raspberry and citrus on the nose. The taste is quite similar. Decent bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth to a weak moment. This beer you could drink but was not so good. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours hazy dark orange/amber with a frothy white head. Smells strongly of lavender. The aroma contains lavender and other herbs, fruits, wheat and hops. It tastes medium sweet and very light bitter. The finish is quite short. Medium body and soft carbonation. Interesting, this one.
