VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Description said that it was made with "Sage" - Pours a beautiful golden amber in color with a fairly big bright white head that stuck around to produce some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite herbal... sage and other unknowns. Some tartness from the yeast. Flavor is pretty typical of a Saison, but the strong herbal flavor of the sage makes this both unique and very good. The sage/herbs are lingering into the finish. This beer would be excellent with a poultry dinner or sandwich!

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2011
bottle pours an orangey gold with big, fluffy off white head. Aroma has a touch of lemon, a bready yeast presence which is slightly tart, sweet spices, lavender perhaps. This saison has an especially bright, zesty feel while being tempered by a nice yeast presence, a little funk balanced by sweet spices on a lingering finish, which evidences chamomile, lavender. Although there is a lavender component to this beer it is not overdone like in alot of american saisons. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation. I have to say I am very fond of Stillwaters take on the saison - they really have it down, unique, refreshing renditions that still adhere to the tradition of the style. I think I may have liked the cellar door a bit better, but this was pretty stellar - the perfect go to session for any occasion. A big thanks to mansquito for this one.

Once again I must throw some credit in the back for the excellent lablework. Stillwaters lables rocks period. This beauty is a 750 ml bottle from lbutikken in Copenhagen. The pour is a deep shady orange with a huge snow white frothe head that slowly fades a little with a fizzy sound. nice. The nose is dominated of a bitter earthly yeast flavour crossed with some faint tropical notes as from pineapple, peach and apricots. A sparkling mouthfeel with a mild creamyness leading to a bitter finish. The taste is fine and balanced with some barnyard and earthy flavour along with a fine hopping. Pretty high carbonated and it makes my burb a little, but this is for sure a nice beer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 Tap. This is legit. Light gold pour with a white head. Nose and taste of pepper, grass, spice, and mild grain. Extremely well done.

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 30, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 Initial aroma out of the bottle is bitter hoppy with a little funk. Beautiful color. Fluffy foam. A bit thin and watery with a hint of alcohol at the end. Very slight sweetness, lemon rind, grassy. The grains and other elements come together and then come up short of delicious. A full, round and enticing flavor is missing for me. While your drinking it you want a sourness to kick in but its flat dry and bitter. Where is the malt? Not bad.

From a 750ml into a snifter. Pours with an unG-dly amount of head! No lacing though, hmmmmm????? Very, alcoholic, musty, chalky aroma. Not a turn on. Mouthfeel is smooth but overcarbonated. Leaves a mediciney tingle on the tongue and the mouth in general. Decent to good appearance of farm-blond, strawberry-blond with a tinge of red to it. Taste is of chalk, chamomile, grass, grass, grass, bubblegum, alcohol, funk and orange. Overall, a very complex and tasty beer. But its just really chalky and overcarbonated. The second Stillwater Ive been underwhelmed with... especially starting at $10 a bottle. Ill probably move on to a different brewer for a while until I hear of one that cant miss... or until someone starts buying my drinks for me.
