First had: on tap at Farmers' Cabinet, Philly, PA
The Raritea line was part of Stillwater's 3x8 series brewed specially for Philly Beer Week 2012. Three breweries (Evil Twin, Cabinet, and Stillwater) each worked on one beer brewed or aged in 8 different ways. Stillwater's contribution, Raritea, was a brett-fermented saison, brewed with 8 different types of tea from the Rare Tea Cellar.
Of the 3 projects, I think Stillwater's came out the best, and had the most distinctiveness, even if they were still mostly subtle differences.
Earl Grey Raritea appeared much like the others in the series: hazy, pale yellow pour with a small cap of white head. Light aroma with notes of grassy funk and citrus. Taste had a more herbal quality, and was less sweet than many of the Rariteas, mildly sour lemon and orange peel, leafy, hints of funk. Light-medium body, dry finish and a nice selection overall.
Serving type: on-tap
