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.
The EJP version appeared much like the others: pale yellow color, hazy, puff of white head that was a bit larger than its counterparts; decent retention and lacing. Citrus-forward nose, leafy and fresh, touch of grassy funk. Similar taste, with flavors of lemon, orange, apple, grass, sweet herbal tea, touch of farm funk. Light-medium body, and nice drinkability, as were all the Rariteas.
Serving type: on-tap
