Bottle. Pour is hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is chamomile, grapefruit, light spice, faint hop, and light hay. Flavor is also chamomile, light spice, light hay and a faint yeasty finish. This is my least favorite of the stillwater series, but still very good. Solid with a rich full body.

750 ml. bottle from Bottleworks. Welcome to Washington, Stillwater! Anyways, this doesnt have much of a head on it. The body has a hazy orange color. A little citrus, lemon, yeast, and sugar hit my nose. It seems to me to be more like a Tripel, aroma-wise. Its not as carbonated as I thought it would be. Im used to Saisons having a crisp texture, but this, again, seems to me to be more like a Tripel. At first, I get a subtle sharp citrus lemon flavor that quickly fades away. After that, the yeast and sugar dominate, and a subtle hop flavor lingers. Its not the most exciting thing in the world. I had Cellar Door and another one of their brews while in Portland, and I was more impressed. I would have liked this beer to a be a bit more effervescent, but I cant have it all. Overall, its decent, but I was expecting more, given what Ive had of theirs in the past.

Pours hazy orange with a dense off-white head. The aroma has nectar fruits, saison earthiness, some chalk, mellow spice and hops - full aroma with a gentleness to it. Medium body with mouth filling frothy carbonation. The flavor starts off with dry saison yeatiness, dry lightly toasted malt, crackers, spicy hops and dry fruitiness. The finish is like a cross between a saison and an IPA with the spicy and piny hops. Solid saison.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Poured into a tulip. 4.0 A: Lightly hazed dark orange color. Three fingers of off-white creamy/frothy hybrid head. Great retention and moderate amounts of spotty lacing. 3.5 S: Overall pretty dry with a lemony grassiness. Musty basement and cracker malts. As it warms, there a touch of wild apple. Grassy hops, but hops are weak. Not very complex, but not bad. 4.0 T: The taste is a lot more intense than what the nose would suggest. Big hit of cracker, biscuit, and to a lesser extent bready malts. Lots a herbal spiciness in the form of rosemary, parsley, lemongrass and a beavy flowers. Again, this is very dry with wild apple like funkiness. Musky basement funkiness as well. Borderline 4.5. 3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Plenty of carbonation that isnt quite spritzy and, indeed, a bit too much. Could be creamier as well. 3.5 D: Good beer, but drinkability suffers from the vegetal component. While the herbal flavor is good for a few ounces, it gets old before the second glass. Still, the malts contribute tasty and aggressive flavors. Worth a try.

On tap at Pizza Paradiso - Georgetown. Reviewed from notes. Pours a bright golden color with a nice white head and hints of orange coloring. Pretty good lacing as it makes its way down. The nose is a bit light, but brings through some hay, orange, lemon, grain, and some light stone fruits. Hints of earth. The taste is similar, with some well integrated flavors. At the same time, theres nothing too deep and most of the flavors are fairly subdued, failing to produce many of the hard-hitting flavors I really look for in a saison. Feel is a bit dry and well carbonated. Overall, this drinks quite well and Im excited to see what else this new brewery produces. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-16-2010

22oz. bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Bottle conditioned. Poured a hazy gold with a thin white head. Citrus and melon in the aroma. Low carbonation, light bodied. Some grainy malt. A little spice and fruit from yeast. I wish this had been a little more crisp and dry. It was a little flabby for me.

From bomber, courtesy of santos999. Grapefruit rind, dusty grain, and light hops. Flowery and delicate bouquet. Medium amber hazy with thin foamy lacing off-white head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium-sweet with light grapefruit rind bitterness and apricot sweetness. Carbonic bitter finish and light tang. Clean after.

So I pour and Boom goes the fizzy head. I am still an ignoramus who doesnt get why some beers just explode into a fizzy head issue no matter how low and slow you pour. Anywho ... the beer looks like a slightly darker macro beer, nothing special. Aroma is pear-y as is the flavor. Some grass notes as well. Maybe some belgian yeast hidden in there as well.

From the tap poured a brownish color with a fair amount of head. Nice light malty flavor with a quick finish.

Thanks to Sam for sharing this some time ago. Hazy gold pour. Phenolic aroma. Flavor is gum, esters and fruit. Light amount of funk. I was slightly disappointed by this one. I would love to try this again
