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

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.
