Poured into a tulip. This one pours a hazy golden honey color with about two inches of fluffy white head that settles. A little bit of spotty lace with a solid cap retaining.

Slightly fruity peppery yeast with a little bit of a butter aroma. Dry barnyard aromas. A distinct raspberry aroma lingers. Dirty yeasty flavors with white pepper. Lots of overbearing funk here. Dry with bitter hops rounding this out.

Explosive carbonation here with a light body and an uncomfortable lingering feel. Overall this one is a disappointment. My least favorite of the stillwater offering so far. It really doesn't come together and has some off flavors.

12oz bottle from Barrels and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 1.99. Date is mighty scrunched but appears to be enjoy by 10/10/13. Served in a Southern Tier tulip snifter.

Pours hazy gold with two fingers of pillowy white head. Decent lacing.

I pick up aromas of yeast, pepper, lemon zest and a strange semi rot smell (that isn't as bad or off-putting as that description makes it seem).

Crisp peppery, lemon peel, clove, mildew, yeast, bitter grassy, hay and a bit of funk.

Slick, medium body with sharp carbonation. Bitter, spicy, yeasty finish.

I'm admittedly no expert on saisons and have only tried a few but this one does nothing to make me want to delve further into the style. It's drinkable enough but the funky spicyness just isn't for me. I prefer the others I've tried like Jailhouse's Reprieve or even the Ovila with mandarins.
