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 isn’t amazing, though, nor is the body itself that attractive. S: Ridiculously herbal. I won’t go into detail identifying all of the notes, so I’ll just say it smells like some utopian spring day. Allowing it to open up will reveal slight brett touches, as well. T: It’s 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. It’s fairly piny, but not in a hop-derived manner. Also sneaking into the back end are some subtle brett notes. There’s 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 that’s expected from a saison. O: This one doesn’t blow me away, however it’s an easily drinkable brew that’s also mildly complex. I’d gladly drink this again.

dorain (423) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2017
Im LagerLager Berlin aus der Flaschen 2016-11 getrunken. Ein echt feines, rotblondes Sommerbier das mit Heidekraut, Kamille, Lavendel und Löwenzahn gebraut wurde. Hier ist eine deutliche Hopfennote und eine leichte Süße sehr gut balanciert. Toll ist das die Zutaten nicht in den Vordergrund treten und das Bier nur abrunden.

kaserov (799) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco puro de tres dedos de grosor (muy buena retención). Carbonatación a tope. Textura efervescente. Aroma de Tripel, con los botánicos muy presentes. Capto algo de plátano también, así como levadura belga. En boca es casi dulce, con presencia de plátano, pan, ligeros cítricos y botánicos de nuevo. Todo muy floral y refrescante, casi apetece irse a un jardín florido a beberla. Final muy ligeramente amargo (es más una sensación que una realidad) y floral. Botánicos en boca entre trago y trago. Ni rastro de alcohol. Quizá hubiera estado mejor fresca, pero para el tiempo que lleva embotellada creo que cumple con creces. Riquísima.
