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)

Benzai (15345) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2011
Golden, little bit cloudy color. Smell and taste have too much herbs or spices in them, just not my thing. Palate is good.

Pours a nice dark gold with a good amount of haze and a solid three fingers worth of head. The nose is interesting and gets me thinking about what was added and when. I get lavender more than anything and something else that had a bit spicy character. The taste is very saisonesq with a nice a creamy finish. More than anything I get pineapple notes that really make this an exceptional beer. Serving type: bottle

TheBeerGod (6197) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle. Murky, muddy amber pour with a large foamy gold head. Strong flowery and herbal aroma with funky yeast, grains and sweet malt. Taste is rather flowery as well with more herbal notes, sweet malt, dusty yeast, grains, light candied fruit and cake. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more flowery flavors, herbal notes, grains, powdery malt, dusty yeast and soft fruit notes. Different but tasty. This definitely screams spring!

TURDFERGUSON (4057) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle given to me by willblake. Thanks Jon! Best RBSG roommate ever. Cloudy orange with big, frothy white head. Big botanical nose, lots of rosemary, and various floral notes. Flavor is very saison-like, some floral notes-dandelion stands out in particular, tea, lemon, bready. Nicely carbonated (not as much as the pour suggests). Pretty good and definitely interesting.
