It’s my pleasure to present a collaboration with The Brewer’s Art. A Baltimore institution that helped to pioneer the Belgian beer movement in the States. Brewed with a combination of Spelt & Rye, accented with a blend of Heather, Honeysuckle, and Hyssop. The result is a rustic farmhouse ale displaying earthy tones & floral characteristics while maintaining intricate balance.

Slightly hazy gold with a decent head that quickly fades to a patchy covering. Interesting nose of heather, apple, flowers, honey, earth, cracked pepper, and some malty sweetness. Flavor is peppery and earthy with some floral notes, rustic graininess, and apple. Dryness keeps the sweetness at bay and there's a general mustiness that adds some character. Medium-light, creamy feel, with a dry finish. Decent, but not my favorite Stillwater beer.

12 oz bottle. Complex floral and herbal flavor is more appealing than the rather yeasty/funky aroma. Medium-full body with good carbonation.
