This is a simply fantastic saison, one of standouts.

It pours a vibrant golden straw color with a bold white cap of foam.

There’s a crisp, lightly estered aroma that carries across some spice and fruit mélange—citrus and summer stone fruits play off one another for a pleasing effect.

Wonderful flavor, with a crisp, clean taste of citrusy goodness and a mellow estery character. I loved it.

burnt gold with a big white head that holds and leaves lots of lace. nose is traditional saison with hints of American-style hops popping up. flowers, fruit, spice (pepper), euro malty sweetness and a bit of country barn all ring out in balance. very impressive. medium body with lively carbonation makes for a nice, prickly, cleansing mouthfeel that goes down way too easy. one of my favorite saisons to date and definitely my favorite American made saison. avant guarde traditional? yum. finally, a breath of fresh air!!

A-poured a gorgeous murky orange with a frothy foamy head and lively carbonation into my oversized snifter. looks like a day out in the fields. golden like a summer's day.

S-explodes with candied sweetness. complex smell bursting with candied hops.

T-bittery hop profile, but nicely balanced. rich in flavor and feel. sweeter saison taste - clove, banana, bubblegum, subtle spicing.

M-creamy and smooth. leaves a tingle and then a bittery dry after feel. definitely heavier than most other saisons, but nicer for the transition out of summer into fall.

D-this really is a fantastic beer. recently at a beer event in nyc i sampled some stillwater for the first time and was blown away. in a day of drinking dozens of different beers, the stillwater brew cut through as a clear highlight. stateside saison is a winner and a beer i will be looking for again and again.

A: Transparent orange amber with a frothy white head that retains well. Moderate lacing on the glass.

S: Very floral; lemongrass, thyme, rosemary. Prominent yeast notes abound with a perfect amount of brett funkiness. Very inviting.

T: Very complex yet cohesive. Dry up front with balanced floral notes; mint, rosemary. Piny hop flavors are present with subtle esters throughout, including lemon zest and some orange pith. Smooth, bitter finish where the funk really comes across. Spot on stylistically and delicious.

M: Light bodied and very effervescent.

O: A wonderful saison: dry, floral, complex and funky. Superb.
