Bottle says it is an American farmhouse ale, a wheat ale brewed with sage. Sage? Yes, sage, white sage. Packaging, despite having perhaps quaint intentions, looks pretty spooky. I mean, you think cellar door, first thing I think is bodies, then bugs, then maybe an old dead cat. But no, this really is a good farmhouse ale, and the sage is a nice addition. It pours a pearlescent amber with short head, and you definitely get the sage in the nose pretty prominently, along with berry and spice. Flavor is tart, slightly sweet, a little sour, and sagey for sure. Body is medium, almost approaches thick with everything going on with the sage and...is this hopped? I don't know. Definitely some bitterness in the finish, though. Good, probably great, but I don't think I'd get it again, ONLY because of the price and the four pack format. Otherwise, it's awesome. Get it. Open the cellar door.

A: Deep gold with a brown tinge, cloudy, a good amount of fine bubbled carbonation, 3 fingers of tall creamy off white head.
S: Lemon, mustard, lime, a coke like quality, a dank old classroom full of pencil shavings and erasers.
T: A pleasant balanced lightly bitter, lemon rind slightly peppery taste with the mustard, lime, pencil shavings and dankness all coming in lightly in the background. The sage comes in as light bitter herbal notes, perhaps contributing to the mustard quality.
M: Medium thick balanced body, a good amount of fine bubbled spicy carbonation. Dry finish.
O: Excellent brew, my first by Stillwater. Got at Bruisin’ Ales, drank on Deerfield Beach, FL, July 18th, 2014.
