29.06.2011. Bottle, shared with Palme and ClubGonzo. Henrik l og vin, Bergen. Golden colour with white head. Hazy. Aroma is dominated by very nice hoppy flavours.

ClubGonzo (5568) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2011
Bottle, shared with Palme and RuneStumo @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy orange body, small white head. Nose is bakers yeast, burnt rubber (first time for me in a beer!) and orange peel, with hints of sour apples and dough. Taste is yeasty mellow tones of citrus, sweet grapes and hints of something resembling mango. Extremely balanced and well-crafted but ultimately not too exciting for my palate. Maybe Im just stuck up on more extreme beers, but Stillwaters subtle crafts dont really do it for me.

750 ml bottle

I finally got around to opening one of the growing number of Stillwater beers that has been resting in the cellar. It seemed like ideal conditions for a saison so it got the nod. If the rest are anything to go by then I look forward to the rest.

Aroma and appearance - Mildly carbonated the body bubbles like the pockets of air from the bottom of a pond. A transparent copper body moves lazily around the glass. The white head takes a long time to finally settle down. When it does the nose contains lemonade, herbs, and piles of pulled ragweed on a warm summer day.

Flavor and palate - The heavy texture is chewy and coats the tongue like teflon. Warm sage, honey, and herbal tea provide a gentle reminder of the origins of this beer. Close to the intended style it brings to mind a busy farmhouse near the end of the day. Drinking this makes me want to clear a few more saisons from the cellar in the next few weeks.

Bottle - 750mL crowned. Golden amber with a tall, foamy white head. Strong dusty yeast, powdery malt, grassy and floral hops and dried fruit in the nose. Soft spice and earthy notes as well. Taste is semi-sweet with fruit notes, big dusty yeast, soft spice, floral hops, wheat, earthy notes, straw, grass, citrus zest and malt. Body is light-medium with a strong, bubbly, effervescent carbonation. Dry towards the finish as well. Ends with more big yeast notes, floral hops, grassy hops, light spice, dried tropical fruit, grains, and malt notes.

JohnCoctosin (37) - California, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle at Monkss in Philly. Good beer, aroma more of glassware than of beer. Attractive deep orange blonde appearance. Nice taste and finish though. Sweet sugars and spices. Malty orange hops and earthy appeal.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2011
(750ml bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with piloow-top white head. Active carbonation. Aroma has lemon, spices, pepper and wheat. Taste is malty sweet, emphasis on malt, with some bittness. Im not digging the maltiness at all. Medium bodied with oily texture. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad, but too malt forward for my tastes.

beerbastard (842) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2011
First of all, I drank this on a very hot day. That made it very refreshing. The nose was very lemongrass. It had a very full palate. Citrus like flavors, like orange peel, and other spices, mellow bitterness, not much sweetness to counter. Dry finish. I would say its very complex. Good stuff!

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2011
Small white head. Slightly hazy deep yellow body. Deep resiny oranges and sage aroma with earthy coriander notes. Sweet-dryish earthy mealy dusty taste with oranges notes. Fullish body. Mild, dusty mouthfeel. Dryish sage and oranges aftertaste with coriander notes. Nice, but a bit too sweet. (0.75l bottle, Hndverkerstuene, Oslo.)

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle-orange hue with a fizzy big bubble white head. spicy lite musty nose with some nice esters (leaves, corriander, mint, ginger) with some grassy notes. Earthy hops, spicy (brett) sugary malts, with big carbonation-some banyard notes come out more as it warmed-more like a true belgian than say a jolly pumpkin beer. Fairly earthy finish with some buttery notes-dont think its diacytl though-didnt show up in the nose. the heavy carbonation detracted for me, even though alot of this style have heavily carbonated palates. good!!!!

Stillwater is currently my favorite brewery. This stateside has a hint of lemonds as well as a slight hint of cherries. Great appearance and went well with steak and scallops. Great for the summertime.
