A-Beautiful, vigorous but puffy white head w/decent carbonation an off amber/gold/honey color w/some haze. Very nice.
S-Some limited barnyard funk mingled with fresh mowed hay and grass, with a citrus swing.
T-Nice, with a touch of Band Aid, grassy citrus and yeast.
M-Rich but not overly so with a bit of silkiness, too.
O-I'd buy it again - cool label with alcohol that's in check.

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.
