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.

MBO version appeared like its counterparts: pale yellow, hazy, slight wispy white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma of crisp citrus, grass, just a bit soapy. An odd woody quality in the taste distinguished this one from the others, but otherwise, flavors of crisp and mildly sour lemon and apple, leafy tea, sweet pale malts, and a touch of grassy funk for a dry finish. Light-medium body, and quite nice overall.
