Pours hazy light orange almost yellow. Thick white head that recedes slowly. Lots of bubbles continue to rush to the top. Decent lacing.
Lots of sage in the aroma. Light perfume, very floral. Earthy and spicy hops with a hint of grapefruit peel. Mild tartness and funk. Hint of bready wheat. Lemon zest as well...quite complex, but the citra hops seem to not be too pronounced. It might have faded with age.
Tartness and more sage in the flavor. A decent amount of hop bitterness. Citrus and earthy hops. Tons of Belgian yeasty flavors. Slightly funky. Finish is dry but leaves hops and tartness.
Medium body with plenty of carbonation. Wheat may be lending a slight slickness. Lively but not fizzy.
Overall a pretty interesting beer. The white sage is very present but not overwhelming. Well balanced but still pretty complex.

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.
