Picked this up a Lukas Liqours in KC, MO

Pours an effervescent straw/honey color with a 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Hazes up a bit, great head retention & lacing

S: Dirty & grassy, fades as this warms

T: Follows the nose, some green apple skins & nice sourness up front. Some citrus mixes with with grassyness & brett. Finishes with orchard fruit, brett funk & grapefruit

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation, great balance

Such an easy drinker, another great beer from Stillwater

650ml bottle - $9.49 at Mink's Package Store in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, light straw-hued body with a lofty, foaming, white crown of suds. Meringue-like lacing.

Smell: A touch of hay-esque malts, a spritz of fresh lemon and lime, half of a pineapple ring, and some Brett notes. As some of the yeastier deposits from the bottle make their way into the glass from latter pours, it picks up a big, spicy, floral perfumy quality.

Taste: Light, mild-mannered pils malts, very low, sans-crust bready quality and just a hint of sweetness. Soft touch of lemon-lime citrus. A few drops of pineapple juice. Heck, maybe some green apple. Lightly bitter. Agreeable, leathery funk character. Coriander and fresh florals later on. A little bit of mineral and a rebound of oily, moist citrus on the staunchly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Well carbonated for a nicely crisp mouthfeel.

Overall: It's a little hay-like malts, some funk, and a appreciated citrus, until you're brain is wrecked by the outstanding refreshment.

A-cloudy orange gold with a nice thick white head

S-smells like raw pale belgian spices and grains. it has an aged aspect to it. pretty strong smelling for such a light american belgian. has even the slightest touch of funk to it.

T-comes in with a great taste of raw belgian grains and spices. very earthy and natural tasting. then comes in a fairly strong bite of peppercorn. the taste is quite strong and continues for awhile with a matching after-taste with maybe more emphasis on the grains. the spicy peppercorn bite seems to last for a bit.

M-very heavy carbonation with a creamy finish that quickly dries up

O-a belgian pale ale at 4.7%...i had high expectations. to be honest, this is almost my dream style...a very low ABV Belgian. the problem with most low ABV belgians is that they usually come out fairly adjunct tasting. not this though...this does a wonderful job tasting like a true, raw belgian. from the taste to the mouthfeel, i can't believe that low ABV on this! its almost perfect...there's one big problem...the price. its way too expensive to be what i want from a table beer. if they sold this in 12 ounce bottles at the same price as...even a 60 Minute...i'd be so happy. it doesn't taste light whatsoever. i can drink this at the same speed as most other decent pale belgians.

pour is a hazy golden yellow with a dense white head and a few larger bubbles. The nose is nice, light brett, heavy fruit presence, apricots and tropical stuff, light hop presence, oily and sweet. The taste is a bit less expressive but still very nice and balanced. Great gentle Brett presence, fruity and nice, tropical flavors, apricot, light hop, oily and a touch sweet. Light body, refreshing and crisp carbonation.

Frothy and bubbly head with some lacing on a murky dull golden body. Aroma is excellent with lots of belgian yeast, tropical fruit and citrus, herbal hops and pale malts. Flavor follows with heavy lemon and banana for citrus, club soda, barnyard, Belgian yeast funk, musty malts, corriander. Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. This is an excellent saison. The flavor and aroma are full in flavor and body, a very complete saison with excellent Belgian character.

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this one. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a clear pale straw color with a very nice white head. Good retention and plenty of sticky lacing on the way down. The nose is beautiful with notes of hay and light earthy hops with a touch of very light citrus in the background. Flavor is hay and straw with a light, yet still brisk, bitterness. Light body and quite dry with excellent carbonation. Über solid. Put this one in cans too, please!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a meringue-like head perched on top of the hazy amber-colored liquid; clumps of lacing stick to the glass

Smell: Bready, with lemon zest, sage and a barnyard tone

Taste: Opens bready, with the lemon and spice elements adding a slightly grassy character by mid-palate; after the swallow, there is a nice blend of the base malt and the herbal with a subtle touch of bretty dryness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: This is a fantastic session beer, filled with flavorful nuance

This is a very good session beer, which the brewers intended. Superior lacing, smell was difficult to pin point but pleasant. Enjoyed this one, but a little light on the tongue. I will enjoy this one next time with some mussels and clams. Also had a bottle and it always surprises me that some beers are so different from bottle to tap. ON tap the brett in this really comes out and adds to the pleasure of drinking. You really can not go wrong with this one, the price even makes it better.

Hazy cloudy gold, bright tangerine yellow beer under a nice densly foamy white head. Lace is shifty and clumping. Aroma is juicy tangy citrus, orange and grapefruit juice with a chewy bready backing, Sweet spice and Thanksgiving aromas woeked in as well. Taste begins even, surges into sour, and then turns to dry and smacky. Chalky powdery texture beyond the finish. Kind of cake-like as well. Tart flowery, citrus juice and rindiness. Lemon, sugar cookie, tart and sweet. Dry and implosive.... Occasaional bits of something whacky and indeterminate sneeks its way in.

I like this a lot.

Pours with a huge head of fluffy white foam and an hazy good body. Pungent aroma of wheat and citrus with some spicy, musty yeast. Earthy flavor with herbal hops and musty wheat. Nicely balanced with a thick body and high carbonation. Nicely done, drinkable but far from boring, another great saison from Stillwater.

The beer comes in a hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head.

The aroma has a decent funk, light bready malt, citrus.

The flavor follows with a good amount of citrus peel, a light bready malt, a funky quality in there along with a bit of spicy yeast onto a light herbal hops on the back.

A really delicious brew at its ABV. I would drink this consistently. There's a good balance hints of funk, fruit, drying, spice, and hops.

Beer shared by Michael or Michael (have issues) the other day. Thanks! Beer is yellow and hazy with a lazy white head, wispy bubbles, some lacing, low retention, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is strongly brett, very strong, nice aroma, like Orval on crack.

So light in body and yeast forward. Very strong brett presence and a dry finish, it is definitely a session table beer and is yeast heavy. Very strong, very nice, I'd have it again.
