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.

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.
