Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. My favorite saison. Lively carbonation. Light and refreshing, lots of citrus notes. Small touch of funk adds great complexity.

Draught. Hazy golden colour. Oily coriander and chamomille aromas. Medium body. Some diacetyl. Some citrus. Nice, but a little too oily. bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants Stillwater event. Pours clear yellow. Soft malt and herb and lightly fruit arom. Flavor is a good lively sweet mild citrus leading to a lightly bitter and lively finish. Soft, mostly clean mouthfeel. Easy but non-descript. BigSound (196) - New York, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours light orange with a thin off-white head, light spotty lacing. slightly sweet aroma, white grape, and a touch of caramel. The flavor has almost a wine like sweetness with a dry finish. The carbonation is moderately high and plays nicely with every thing else thats going on.

Thanks to Mike for offering me a sample from his 750ml bottle. Khaki head. Little loose lace. Hazy orange color. Kind of a sharp, soft carbonation. More dry finish. Light estery belgian yeasts, good piney hops. Light bitter taste. Good flavor, interesting texture. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012

This is one that I’ve been meaning to get around to and the results were not disappointing. A fine Belgian strong ale takes on the best characteristics of thins I’ve seen in most of the Mikkeller and Stillwater releases. I hope the other Stillwater bottles turn out so well.
Aroma / Appearance - The surge of dusty head took time to settle down like a frothy coffee drink. Underneath a cloudy rose gold body shimmered with light traces of sediment. Hay, earth, and lemons add to the impression of dusty old books. It feels ideal for an arid dry day as it has the same aspects.
Flavor / Palate - The texture is chewy and dense. A brittle woody bitterness fades away after a few sips save for a resin that hangs in the back of the throat. It feels earthy and toned down. This is a good collaboration although at $12.99 a little on the spendy side.
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen, shared with (and bought by) Meilby, thanks man! :-) Pours a dark golden body with a large creamy long-lasting dense white head. Aroma is peppery notes, hints of peaches, sugar and herbs. Well balanced. Taste is odd, yet pleasant: wet moss, pepper, mushroom-like earthy flavors, hints of citrus and honey. Slick body, dry mouthfeel with a decent dash of carbonation. Well composed and a very interesting beer. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden color with big white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, grain, and some lemon and citrus. Belgian flavor with some earthy bitterness added in. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Pours a nice medium orange golden color with a big foamy head... this beer has a surprisingly soft nose with hints of barnyard yeast, citrus and a bit of earthy spice whiffs coming through. On the palate there is nothing soft about it. Big bright farmhouse yeast with a great hoppy grapefruit quencher in the midpalate that bitters out on the finish. Top Notch Collaboration !
