Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass. Really liking the label graphics. Bottle on 09/14/13.

A-Frothy white 1 finger head hazy golden orange body, some sediment in the bottom of the glass.

S-Typical farmhouse funky aromas. Some lemon. Bitter spice smells.

T-Funky yeast, lemon pith. Dry finish with a nice carbonation all the way through to the end. Can keep going back for more and more.

O-A decent beer which would be perfect on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12oz standard pressure-cap bottle into a tulip glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live. I'm honestly impressed I was able to get this beer from Maryland here. To be fair though, I think it is Portland spoils.

A- Two-finger frothy white head with minute-long retention. Cloudy orange body with fairly low clarity.

S- Farmhouse yeasts, citrus, lemons. Aromatic and very typical of the style. Nice smelling beer.

T- Citrusy with lemons and oranges. Earthy yeasts. Great flavored saison.

M- Light bodied, subtle carbonation and well balanced.

O- Well above average beer. Enjoyable all-around.

Aroma is spices, lemons and a hard to describe tangy/sweet/grainy element. The flavor is lemons, spices, citrus, very mild/slight spiciness from the malts and a tart/sour finish. Good complexity and not too spicy, another pretty good ale from Stillwater.
