Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BEERchitect on 03-17-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

While harnessing the simple splendor that is Stillwater, for this remix of Premium I have called on an abundance of Amarillo hops. The aim is to bring you on an expedition through the jungle.

4.29/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Pours a light yellow gold color. It's opaquely hazy. Just a solid block of color with some glow at the edges. Somewhat rocky white head. Good retention. Nice enough looking beer. The aroma is dominated by a mix of hoppy and yeasty notes with a mild bready malt background. Lots of fruit flavors bouncing around. I'm getting lemon, pineapple, grass, peppercorn, tangerine, grape, blackberry, raspberry, apricot. Lots of nice stuff, though I'm not sure what's from the hops and what's from the yeast. I have no idea if they used brett with this beer, but I'd guess yes based on the flavors. It's a very clean fruitiness. The taste is quite dry with lots of hop flavor. It has a clean yeasty presence. Lots of fruit. Mild to moderate bitterness. Pale malt way in the back. Lemon rinds, pepper, grass, pineapple pith, pretty much the dry, bitter, spicy version of what I previously described. Very easy to drink. Fairly effervescent, which seems to be a theme with Westbrook-brewed hoppy stuff. Medium light body. There's a lot of flavor. Very nice beer. Seems kinda underrated here. (1,079 characters)

From tasting notes. L: A 2” rocky white foam collar sits atop a hazy straw column. S: Banana, tropical fruit, and over ripe fruit, light funk with spice and herb in the background. T: Banana and tropical fruit balanced by grassy hops and some rosemary notes. F: Very creamy, soft palate, medium light, slightly above average carbonation. O: The beer to drink with cod and roasted potatoes. (391 characters)

Pours slightly hazed & effervescent gold with 3 fingers of pearl white head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Breadyness, lemons, grapefruit

T: Lemons, slight yeastiness & some breadyness, plus a little grapefruit up front. Some pear & pineapple as this warms, grapefruit is stronger as this warms, plus dryness. Finishes dry with a nice citrus & floral hop flourish, some peppery notes as well

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, good balance

Drinks pretty easy, nice for the style, but at this price, it is a one & done... (531 characters)

Pours a hazy light straw color with a thick HUGE head with moderate lacing. Citrus fruits and light sweet malts on the nose. A lot going on for a "post colonial style ale" in the saison family. Excellent single hop style beer with Amarillo hops to the front giving a fantastic light citrus like bodied flavor and mildly sweet aftertaste, dry but not off putting. One of the best single hopped beers I have tried. An A plus and this coming from one who is far from a hop head. Cheers. (483 characters)

Sample at Max's on 4/28/14 (from notes)

A: Lacing. Hazy, light straw colored.

S: Lightly hopped.

T: Flavorful, with a slightly sweet funk to it.

M: Smooth, with tiny bubbles. Good body overall.

O: Good, sessionable and easy to drink. I love Omnipollo, but this is not worth the $15 for a bottle. (300 characters)

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a very hazy, pale straw amber with a massive, nearly half glass white head from an easy pour; a bit overcarbonated. Aroma of mixed tropical and citrus fruit, saison style yeast, citrus hops, slight earthiness. If I poured a tropical fruit profile IPA into a saison, this is what I would expect it to smell like. Flavor is dry citrus rind and bretty saison yeast, odd faint bready and grassy flavors on the edge of the tongue, drying out a bit more as the flavors fade in the finish to a lingering citrus rind and citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodie with peppery active carbonation. The flavor is quite different than the aroma, with little of the tropical fruit hop and malt influence. Basically a citrus hopped saison, lots of interesting lemon and grapefruit juice and rind flavors with the slightly wild saison yeast as support. Not quite my style, and not really an American blonde ale (very little American malt flavors detectable here), but a refreshing citrus saison that holds interest with its variety of flavors in the citrus family, particularly some nice fresh lemon taste. (1,135 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white white head that died down, but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of funk are present in the nose along with strong notes of lemony hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and starts out with some funkiness from the brett and is followed by lemony hops. The brett stands out in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a relatively good balance between the brett and the lemony hops. (658 characters)
