Hazy light golden, small white head, quick to just a very poor lace and almost nothing else.
Lemon, some cherry plum, some apricot, yellow apple, faint quince, so pretty nice and fruity on the nose. Honey. Belgian yeasts and hop make up nice lemongrass, spring flowers, coriander, faint peppermint, faint heather.
Feels a bit saison-oriented from the start. Nice orchard fruit, lots of apple and pear, a bit of quince, with a nice mildly tart yellow cherry and light lemon zing to freshen things up. Dry grainy malts, straw, honey sweetness. Great spicy yeasts, lots of clove, coriander, white pepper, floral tea. Never too heavy on the yeasts, but plenty flavorful. Finishes with spicy hops, not too strong and bitter, so safe from becoming a Belgian IPA.
Aftertaste is really nice, with clear clove lingering on the palate, generic blond fruit, some honey sweetness and a light herbal feel. Medium body, medium carbonation, just a bit prickly, a tiny bit dry too.
Great stuff, really nice flavors without going out of the style.

Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is mild overall: coriander, lemon and dry grain.
The taste starts with lemon bitterness, moves to a mild honey sweetness and finishes with a dry bitter note. Good profile.
The texture is silky with right amount of fizz. Excellent.

Pours a one finger white head that fades slowly leaving traces of lace. Hazy straw color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light citrus nose and flavor is tart citrus with some sweet malt. Higher ABV is hidden. $3.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, it produces a nice off-white, finger and a half head. Doesn't last long but leaves a nice little cap for the duration. Minimal lacing. Lovely little floating bits of "sediment." As I drink this outside by the grill I notice the color of autumn leaves. Smells fantastic. Smells yeasty and citrusy at the same time. It's a bold ad hoppy Belgian as described on the bottle. I'm still getting a taste for Belgians but this one is most agreeable. Smooth mouthfeel with just a hint of bitterness. Despite it's relatively high ABV, it's not offensively alcohol-ee. One wouldn't know it has a high percentage without reading the bottle... Or waiting for the inevitable pleasant buzz to start. This is a tasty beer. I don't review many beers but felt this was a worthy candidate. Highly recommend Stillwater As Follows. Cheers!
