Murky, dirty yellow body hosts plenty of carbonation and a thin, white head that has mediocre retention and leaves no lacing. The rush of bubbles is actually audible.
Nice and spiced. It's nothing out of character for the style, but it is pleasant and your nose will thank you for this one. Fresh ground pepper and coriander, lemon zest, pungent Belgian yeast, and a hint of leather. Overall it's very sweet and earthy.
Quite sweet and pleasantly funky. All attributes noted in the aroma are present in taste. Only the slightest tinge of bitterness immediately upon sipping.
Smooth and sweet medium(ish) bodied brew. Gobs of carbonation. Clean and dry finish.
Fantastic example of one of my personal favorite styles. This will make a great grillin' companion. Easy to drink and refreshing, you definitely want to add this to your shopping list.

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.
