I poured this from a bottle into an oversized wine glass.
A: Poured a lovely, cloudy golden yellow.
Light cream-colored, bubbly head.
S: Citrusy, floral, earthy fragrance. Tart.
T: Fruity. Dry. Kinda floral. Spices.
A little peppery. Hoppy in a subdued way.
M: Fizzy on the tongue. Refreshing. Medium bodied.
O: It was good and flavorful. Very unique.
Just hoppy enough to mix with the interesting
combination of floral, spice, and citrus flavors.

A very nice beer.
Hazy gold color, thick white head. A bit of delicate lacing.
Lemon aroma mostly. Spicy and peppery. Sweet malt in the background.
A lot more going on in the taste. Lemon first, then pepper and cloves. Bready. An earthiness from the yeast. And, to top it off, some late hops. The flavors all worked well with each other.
A crisp, refreshing beer.
If we ever get some warm weather up here, it would be a perfect beer for a summer day.

Purchased 7/2011, but no bottle date. Poured into a tulip.
A - A slow pour yields four fingers of off-white head on top of a clear slightly orange golden brown with nice carbonation rising. Head has great retention and leaves some lacing, but less than I would have thought.
S - Mix of fruit and earthy funk with apples, pears and a bit if white grape. Also very floral.
T - Taste is a bit heavy on the sweet/floral initially, but fruits and earthy funk eventually come through. Also a subtle tartness. Finish is dry and earthy. Enjoyable.
M - Medium mouthfeel with nice carbonation and a dry earthy finish.
O - For the pricepoint, there are better and cheaper saison, but I enjoyed his and would have it again.

A- Super cloudy pineapple juice color with a medium sized white head that has okay retention.
S- Overripe fruit, tangerine and a touch of honey. Nice mix.
T- Up front citrus and pineapple dominate with clean hoppy bitterness building into the finish. Refreshing.
M- Dry with medium carbonation, this is right where it should be.
O- A very good saison, one I will definitely want to revisit.

12 ounce bottle, "Bottled on 2-19-13" So super fresh...nice
Pours medium golden amber, under a large and staying light khaki head. Bubbles slowly continue to rise. Leaves some dense sheeting and some bands of lacing.
Nose is brightly of lemons, oranges, lime, some pepper, and earthy/yeasty goodness.
Flavorful and hopped up saison, flavors picked up on the nose carry onto the palate. Accent on the lime, pepper, earthyness. Also a layer of fruity, and moderatly drying hops.
Well done - complex, fresh and tasty. Go get some.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, high carbonation, dark gold in color, cloudy
Smell: honey, apple, dark wheat, Belgian spices
Taste: honey, apple, dark wheat, Belgian spices
Mouthfeel: sweet start with a dry bitter finish, light bodied and high carbonation
Overall: An above average saison that has nice crisp bitterness and good dryness. The smell and look were excellent however. Worth a try but I have had better in the style.

Thanks to Nellie for sharing this bottle. This is my first beer from Stillwater.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is yeast with some spices and citrus fruit. The flavor is a mix of orange and lemon with some Belgian yeast and assorted spices. A nice drinkable saison. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 2/19/13 (1 1/2 months old)
A nice bright golden almost orange color, a bit of haze. A nice big fluffy white head of off the pour fades to a patchy retentive foam, no real lace to speak of.
Belgian yeast phenols, clove, slight hints of Belgian spice, a bit of under ripened fruits, some lemongrass citrus.
Spicey Belgian yeast phenols, clove, under ripened fruit, apple and pear, citrus, mostly lemon. Finishes with a bit more hop bitterness than expected for the style.
Easy drinking, medium to light in body, crisp carbonation, very slight tartness.
A solid Saison, good to style. Makes me look forward to try more from Stillwater.

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.
