Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

The beer comes in a completely opaque light lemony yellow with a bubbly white head.

The aroma attacks your nostrils with fresh grapefruit peel. It’s almost as if the acidic citrus was coming in your nose. The experience is quite surreal. Then onto some pineapple, passionfruit, guava, a bready malt and a big spicy yeast quality.

The beer has lots of carbonation and a large peppery spice herbacious yeast quality. It’s very yeasty and herbacious. Then onto that grapefruit peel and light tropical fruit. A light bready malt in the middle, onto a grapefruit citrus bitterness and then a drying quality. Some hay quality.

A beautifully herbacious and yeast heavy saison style beer with a heavy handed amount of hops. This beer definitely pairs beautifully with a meal.

While I do prefer the Stillwater Remix, this is still outstanding. I absolutely love this series and new take on the style with this hoppy saisons.

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.

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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a St Bernardus goblet.

A: Stark white textured head. Hazy clear gold. Beautiful.

S: At first I thought it was skunky, now I think it's Belgian yeast. Spicy, zesty, and dry.

T: Tasty! Rather dry. Tastes like a BPA. If it's loaded with Amarillo hops, I don't taste them. Well, maybe a littttle bit. The fruity-bitter endtaste. Yum. Dry endtaste.

M: Tasty, refreshing, and mmmm. More-ish.

O: I really enjoyed this. It might be a bit plain, but it's refreshing and drinkable.

American blonde, eh?

Pours a fizzy highligher yellow with a large, tight white head. Looks like Duvel, kinda, only brighter and more cloudy.

Smells similar to Orval but peppry and more aggressively hoppy. Tastes thick and dark. Pepper, green hops--big amarillo nodes, especially. Like Orval mixed with Gumballhead, almost. Or like if Gumballhead used super aggressive Belgian yeast.

A very thick, very tasty beer. Not the most quaffable, but still quite good.
