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.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

I sure did like this one. Served in a tulip glass, a copper-gold color with a slight haze, capped with a finger of creamy white head that retained 'til the end and left a thick blanket of lacing on the glass. Great aroma, fresh, and laden with floral sweetness, honeydew, pear, apricot, afterthoughts of bready yeast, peppery spice, hay. The taste fell a little short of the aroma, but it was still very nice. Pale malts, sugar sweetness, floral, fresh cut hay, bready, light hints of citrus and melons. Smooth and tasty, light-medium body, but still a bit chewy, and highly enjoyable at a nice reasonable alcohol level.

4.4/5  rDev +13.1%
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

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with an inch and a half off-white frothy head. Head retention is excellent, and there's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is very nice, the brew smells like hay, peppery spice, pears, brett, lemon peel and some earthy hops. It tastes like sage, pepper, lemon peel, hay, brett and a little bit of bubblegum. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth but has a little bit too much carbonation for me. I think it's a good overall brew. Low in alcohol, but full of flavor! It's definitely worth trying.

Light gold color...lingering head. Big aroma...cat litter, peat, funky fruit. Taste is bitter and rich...decent overall flavor despite the aroma. A bit dry, some peach...nothing outrageously wonderful or bad, nice though...I could down a big bottle despite the smell!

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.

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!

tremendous thanks to Gary...you are always surprising me with such excellent beer and i'm ALWAYS psyched to check out new stillwater! enjoyed from my stillwater wine glass.

a - brew poured a transparent orange with a generous three fingers of foamy white chunky head. head slowly fizzled away leaving milkshake like chunks of foam. some soft visible carbonation could be seen.

s - great crispness. bubblegum and sage. very reminiscent of cellar door. some soft citric hopping with candy-like sweetness. soft spicing like white pepper. the brett is subtle, but delivers a funk on the sweetness which is just fantastic.

t - taste is like the smell but a bit toned back. bubblegum and sage with a nice crisp hop bitterness on the finish. brett is more featured in the taste, but a bit watered down. very tasty and enjoyable...but feels like a beer made for a summer day. sage and white pepper...some belgian yeast.

m - the body is a bit watery, but very quenching. finishes a touch dry.

o - overall, the label really describes the beer well. great session-ish beer. really nice belgian vibe. the brett is a nice touch with some soft spicing and sage like appeal. the nose is the highlight and has really nice complexity. i enjoyed this beer thoroughly...extremely well done. very unique for a BPA, kind of like a cross with a saison.

650 mL 2012 bottle.

Pours a hazy straw golden color with a frothy, light white head that has nice retention and thick webs of lace. Earthy and floral nose, light lemon and funk. Flavor starts floral and hoppy, Belgian yeast, pepper, straw, and light brett finish. Medium thick, full body with moderate carbonation and a clean, dry finish. Very refreshing, would pair well with something.
