Enjoyed on tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo. Poured what appeared to be a hazy light orange color. It was a little difficult to see in the light from the bar. It had a nice efferescent white head that lasted a good while. The aroma was grainy, yeasty, slightly citrusy. The flavor was a nice balance of yeast character, grainy malt backbone, enough hop bitterness to balance, some lemon and grapefruit citrus, light spiciness, and a wonderful tart dry finish. Light to medium body with lots of carbonation. Enjoyable throughtout with nice changes as the temperature warmed the beer. Would definitely recommend to have as soon as possible and often as possible.

330 ml bottle, cloudy golden colour with really good lacing. Smell has some apricot and a full fruity yeast aroma, banana, hay and pale malt, sweet a bit with also a ton of complexity. Taste is got a hefty carbonation with some banana and grape flavours, some cinnamon and bready malts, some peach and slight barny flavours, a bit of a hay overload before coming to a full finish with a bit of a high hop bitterness, finish then dries out. A ballsy full flavoured saison, some of the alcohol comes through and eventually it become apparent this is not up to the highest standards despite a full flavour. Pretty solidly built saison though, lot of flavour and good stylistically, perhaps my criticisms were a bit too harsh as it's quite tasty.

Light straw, clumpy lace. Nose and taste are lemons, zest, cloves, spice. Nose is a lot less than taste tho.. Full bodied and in your face from first sip, as is Stillwater's wont, tho the taste does feel somewhat over spiced thus disconnected. Almost like a favour had been added too late. Dry finish and zesty palate
Good drinking tho.
