The can says "Postmodern beer". I can't tell if these guys have their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks or are gigantic douchebags. It poured a cloudy yellow with a big fluffy white head. The smell is some grassy hops and a bit of citrus. The taste is dominated by the hops. It's piney and grassy, very little malt sweetness to offset. The astringency of it lingers on the palate. The mouthfeel is pretty aggressively carbonated. I dunno, I was hoping for something a little more. Thoroughly underwhelming.

Pours yellow with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows some Belgian yeast, some farmhouse funky notes, soft vegetal hints and banana.
Some of the Belgian and farmhouse notes remain as flavours along with a corn note and apple characters.
Carbonation is a bit excessive.

Poured from the twelve ounce can into a snifter.

A- Pale, foamy white head, sticky wall of lace. Body is cloudy, golden and shows brisk carbonation. 4

S- Lemony, sweet malt, floral aroma of lilies, peppery. 4

T- Floral, faint malt and grain flavors, tiny hints of honey. The lemony flavor emerges as it warms. 3

M- Sweet, light, mildly effervescent, and aggressively bitter at the finish. Dry like wine. 3.75

There are some decent traits to this beer, but the flavor really lacks. It's mostly faint and offers little to surprise or make note of. 3.12

Attractive pale golden with barely a haze. Plenty of foam in the squat Blanche de Bruges chalice with lacing to the last. Faint aroma with a little grain in the nose. Quite bitter from the start along with the yeasty taste. More of an austere Witbier than a Farmhouse.

This is a beer that definitely needs food to go with it. It is so bitter after a few sips that it tastes like some new fiendish hop with all the aromatics boiled out of it. Muddy aftertaste and on the harsh side. I'm beginning to give up on Stillwater after a couple promising beers a couple years ago. From the 12 oz can purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego.

Served from tap in a taster glass at Haymarket.

Bachelor Party-Palooza 2014 (Part 1) won't stop yet, especially when a Stillwater saison (do they make anything else, really?) is handy. This stuff pours a lightly hazy straw-brass topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises grass, light clove (I think that's what that is), flowers, and dry biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some rather mild pine needle and a hint of some vague fruitiness. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice enough saison, but one that's too focused on the hops for any yeast character to actually shine through.

Thanks goes out to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is very mild, some lemons, malts. Taste is a bit unusual for the style. Lots of lemons, tart, some yeast, fruits. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Brilliant and bright golden coloring with a frothy and light marangue for a head. The retention was impressive and the lacing thick.

The nose is sweet and aromatic with tangy clove banana and a yeasty body. Light bubblegum-like sweetness compliments a wheat scent.

The flavor is a tad metallic with a grainy wheat and yeasty clove. There's a bit of unexpected piney hops at the finish and I detect no banana.

The feel is very dry but sprite and bubbly.

This was really good until I tasted it and then they lost me. Maybe it needs to be on tap to truly show it off.
