Stillwater Classique has a very thick, foamy, off-white head, a hazy, bubbly, yellow appearance, and a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet, zesty, spiced bread, and the flavor is the same, with low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and Stillwater Classique finishes semi-dry, refreshing, easy going, and highly drinkable. No better or worse than any other farmhouse ale I have had. Good stuff, though.

12 ounce can, w/o freshness info.
Pours heavily hazed yellowy and dull in color. Nice looking fine and light near white head, goes to a film, thicker collar and quality looking strands and webs of fine lacing.
Spiced, perfumed, citric and tropical nose. nice
Sightly tart, brightly flavorful, with more citrus, lemon/lime comes to mind. Spicy, astringent and biting yeast and hop notes in the rear adding to the intrigue and complexity. Real nice stuff, fine summer kinda brew.
Would be great with all sorts of foods- cheeses, thai, spicy all candidates for pairings.

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, straw yellow in color, clear
Smell: apple and hay
Taste: sweet apple, hay, lemon, slight banana
Mouthfeel: sweet start with funkiness, light bodied and high carbonation

12 oz can. Canned(?) date stamped on the bottom of August(?) 2013.
Pours pale golden-yellow; hazy; very good head.
Aroma: banana, bubblegum, green tomato ... there's more, and in total it is much nicer than this mix sounds.
Flavor: some Belgian notes; like nose; no musk or funk.
Feel: very clean, especially for style
O: Another excellent canned beer.

(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours a pale lemon yellow body that is hazy with a thick sticky snow white head of cream that has some nice lacing. There is a swirl of microbubbles billowing to the surface.
S- The hint of pils malt is followed by a soft lemon pith with some slight soapy qualities to it.
T- The dry grapefruit pith flavor is soft with some field corn hints to it and a dry finish that has some sulfur or pepper hints to it. It is a clean but dry finish.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp fizz in the finish.
O- This is a nice looking beer and pretty taste but it is a bit dry with very little yeast profile to make it a session beer. Especially if price is a factor.

A brilliant gold, this Saison is bright and clear. A large, clean white head is heavy and rocky, a strong one nearly a full finger's height after peaking at two. Plenty of patching clings as it recedes.
This beer's overall profile is light but firm, with a gently musty, dusty earthiness and spices under an even base of pale malts with underlying floral and herbal notes, lemon zest gently adding to the depth in each sniff and each sip. A lightly dry, vinous sort of character is a major part of the character.
The feel is bright, crisp and clean in a light body with a strong carbonation that doesn't take away from the soft strength, but it does add a strong spritziness that, with the dryness, throws things off ever so slightly.

Pale glowing yellow in color with a very nice looking white cakey head on top. Lace has already started and retention is about a 1/4 inch high. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and creamy. Banana pudding, lemon, and spice... Flavor is spicy and floral with lemon candy. Very refreshing, fun beer. Mouthfeel is very smooth until gradually broken up by tiny tingly carbonation bubbles. Overall good stuff.
