Pours out a light, hazy gold with an inch of head. The lace doesn't stick around too long.
The smell is pale malts, funk and citrus.
The taste give off more than the smell. Soured yeast, pale malts, slight hint of pear, citrus and a hint of grain. The mouth is nice and smooth.
A great collabeeration of talents on this beer. I'll grab another to pop in my cellar for sure!

On tap, no way, at When pigs fly pizza. I thought it odd I ordered a saison and it came over In a hefe glass. I thought she had the wrong beer. Hazy gold, like a wit or hefe, nose mainly of barnyard saison, wet horse-blanket and old stone sheep troughs. A hint of lemon and banana esters. Taste, wow, are you sure this isn't a wit? Citrusy wheat on top, spice, oat? I've never had a wheat saison before, but I will seek them out now. Finishes with a long dry saison funk, Light acid but still rounded. What a subtle but delicious brew, I could drink these all night, perfect for spring or this odd in between time we're having. Well done! Like Fantome and Samuel smith's, I am coming to believe Stillwater can do no wrong!

Thanks Thopre, more beer for my Stillwater glass because it gets thirsty.

Beer is yellow and hazy, soft white head, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is sweet, a little fruity, interesting.

Beer is sweet, a little boring especially for Stillwater. It is a little fruity, a little sweet, nice finish, wet. I'd have it again but not my favorite. I'm bumping up the appearance because the label is awesome.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.

The beer appears a hazy straw yellow hue with a quarter inch of white head. The aroma offers floral notes, pepper, yeast, grass. An abundance of cracked pepper in the flavor, along with some earth notes and a yeast presence. The beer is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this was decent, but not among my favorite offerings from Stillwater.

Bottle picked up at Whole Foods on P Street in DC. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Pours a slightly-cloudy golden color with a small, fizzy white head. Some sparse lacing on the way down, along with a few bubbles on top. The nose carries some grassy notes plus a bit of spice and light earth.

The flavor has mild spice and earthiness plus a very slight mineral character. Average duration and a light bitterness through the finish. Light body with good carbonation. A bit tame, but still quite drinkable with a very nice feel.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Color: Orange/golden color similar to apple juice. Careful pour left only a thin line of head.
Smell: As expected the smell is typical Saison/Farmhouse funk. Bready aroma mixed in with some subtle fruit and spice notes.
Taste: Very light taste, nothing is overpowering in this beer. One thing I noticed was that this beer was not a carbonated as I expected. Light fruits such as grapes come through along with a pleasant grassy flavor. Not much spice from this beer, but the finish of this beer leaves an earthy taste on the palate.
O: A solid Saison that was pleasant and easy to drink, just as it should be.

375 mL cork and caged bottle. Served in a Stillwater wine glass.

Pours a hazed, pale golden bronze (heh) color with a large, rocky froth head. Fades to a thin film of cream and sheets of lace that slowly fall down the glass. Dry aroma of lemon and grain, with subtle pepper and must lingering in the finish. Flavor is slightly sweeter than the nose, with a medium thick, soft body and light carbonation. Strong yeast presence throughout, with lemon and vanilla starting front of the palate and finishing earthy and grainy. Finish has a slight touch of booze and is a little watery, otherwise this is a great saison.

375 mL bottle poured into a tulip

A- A hazy straw yellow with a three white head.

S- I am really liking the the nose on this. Light fruits, some nice barnyard funk, mint, some earthy spices, some lemon.

T- Getting a nice citrus/lemon tartness through out with a complex funky, earthy, grainy finish, front reminds me of a nice Witbier. Really enjoy that taste of this, leaves me wanting more.

M- Medium body, high carbonation.

O- Another good beer for Stillwater. A nice easy drinking Saison. Definitely will pick up at again.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an orange-brown color and a cloudy texture. There was a huge, creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: You get a big shot of that typical saison funk, along with malt and some spices.

T: Tasted of malt, the aforementioned funk, spices (a little clove among others), grain, citrus, and some yeast. A vibrant, well-rounded flavor,

M: A highly carbonated beer (a trait common to Hof Ten Dormaal beers) with a creamy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A thoroughly drinkable, easy to like saison.
