A Stillwater beer in a can! Canned 06/16/14. Tasted 21 November 2014.

Pours a hazy golden straw yellow, just a touch of orange. 1.5 fingers of white head, good retention, nice peninsulas of lacing reaching up the glass.

Smell is outstanding. Super bright, fruity and floral, glowing with saison yeast spark. Sweet oranges, flowers, and zippy spice in the background. Brings all the characteristics I want from a saison, in spades.

Taste is not what I expected. It's clean and crisp, with some juicy melony goodness, and a whole lot of spice. But primarily it's dry and clean, like a well-crafted pale ale. The yeast just brings accents to dance on that platform.

Feel is delightful. Light body, buzzy carbonation that melds perfectly with the spice.

This reminds me of a heavily dry-hopped APA. It's powerful in the nose, and clean, dry, and spicy in the mouth. It's just that the smells are yeast instead of hops, and the taste has spice instead of mild hop bite. A fantastic beer, and unlike any I've had before.
