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.

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.

Likely a scaled up version of Stillwater Ale's Classique Post Modern Beer but with an obscene amount of Amarillo hops added to the mix, this self-described "Post Colonial Style Ale" has supreme drinkability and a plethora of fruit and zest.

As the post colonial style ale pours, it does so with a hazy lemon appearance- its turbulent carbonation races to fuel a cottony dry head with long retention and clinging lace. At times resembling sparkling white wine as much as beer, the beer simply has an inviting look.

Spice and fruit fill the nose with wafts of fresh grated white pepper, light cumin and straw. Its growing hop presence carries a tangy pineapple character that's backed by grapefruit and orange peels. A light and tangy acidity further reinforce the scent of riesling.

The flavors bounce right off the tongue with its high effervescence. Its citrus and tropical fruit medley carries a dry and spicy bitterness that easily outlasts its thin wafer-like bread and sweetness. Any of that short-lived sweetness seem to extend from fruit giving a ripe and plump taste. Its peppery-dry finish is playfully tart even as the ale closes with fruit pith, hay and herb.

Its light and zesty body once again pangs against the mouth as the ale prefers champagne like bubbliness over that of creamy ale. As those bubbles pop, they carry the beer to a fast-fleeging finish of peppery warmth, light herbal astringency and bone dryness. Its supreme dryness exposes a minerally taste and a long draw of watering texture in the middle, offering up impression of seltzer.

Likely the ideal ale for piccata pasta with capers and white wine sauce, the ale begs for rich food pairing. Standing alone, its refreshing taste and texture simply begs for something in accompaniment.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy but very light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains spices, Belgian yeast, light caramelized malts, citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then a strong spiciness quickly comes in followed by sweet flavors of bananas and citrus. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry but slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for a spicy pale Belgian-style ale.

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...

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon peel, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, guava, peppercorn, straw, floral, grass, herbal, light pine, light bread, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and spicy yeast ester notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon peel, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, guava, peppercorn, pine, floral, grass, straw, herbal, light bread, and yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy yeast spice/pine bitterness on the finish with light tartness; with lingering notes of lemon peel, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, guava, peppercorn, pine, floral, grass, straw, herbal, light bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops and spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great hop/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy saision style. All around great complexity and balance of citrus/tropical hops and spicy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.

Poured a cloudy light gold body with two finger head that takes a long time to go away and leaves lace patches. Typical aroma that is light, breezy, but contains notes of yeast, some citric hops and orange, spices (pepper and clove) and a touch of sweetness from caramel and possible tropical fruits (pineapple). Smooth from the yeast, light, almost watery, real easy to drink, finishes clean. The spices citric hops are minimal and keep things in balance as I find this mostly to be light, refreshing beer with moderate sweetness from both malts (ranging from caramel to candi sugar) and tropical fruits like pineapple. Not a complex beer but hit the spot as I had it sitting outside on a hot Saturday afternoon.

A: Pours a milky yellow-gold with a thick, creamy white head.

S: Aromas of must, grass, lemon, lime, minerals, crackers, and subtle barnyard funk fill the nose.

T: Big Amarillo notes-fresh cut grass, white onion, garlic, sage, peppermint, beeswax, lemon, lime, pineapple, kumquat, white grapefruit, and bitter orange- are present up front, chased by delicate notes of minerals, crackers, biscuits, must, and lactic funk. The finish is lactic, sour, and citrusy with pronounced notes of pineapple, bitter orange, lemon, lime, white grapefruit, must, minerals, and lactic yeast.

M: Very slight in body with a good balance between dry and resinous textures. Carbonation is active and airy. Alcohol is very difficult to detect. For a beer of 7% abv, this is almost too easy to drink.

O: A good ale and a very unique one at that. I love the over-the-top Amarillo aromas and flavors. Very well done.
