Picked this one up at Hop City this weekend. Haven't seen it since Stillwater showed up in Georgia, so I was happy to have finally found it. 22 oz bottle served up in a tulip.
A: This hits the glass a light orange color. Held to the light, it turns into a more pale yellow. The body is quite hazy/cloudy, with a pretty healthy carbonation presence. The head was a good two fingers off the pour. Falls to about a finger and sticks around. This beer must be slick because any lace that grabs the glass slowly slides back into the head. Nice.
S: Herbs: thats the first thing I pull out of here. Getting that sage along with some sweet basil and rosemary. Very nice. Getting those wheat and lemon notes as well. touch of wet wood mustiness.
T: Almost exactly like the nose. Sage, basil, rosemary all do their thing. They aren't too aggressive, but they are definitely the focus of this beer's flavor. Wheat plays second fiddle with some earthiness. Lemon zest compliments nicely. Earthy and musty, just a touch of dirty barn. Things round out with just a slight lingering note of pear. Dig it.
M: Medium bodied with a carbonation a bit on the higher side. The carbonation works though, keeps it crisp and drinkable. ABV is no where to be found. It does get a little sweet at times but it finishes dry. Aftertaste is various herbs and some pear from time to time.
OA: Didn't know what to think about this one. Haven't really heard much about it and sadly the name is what has kept my interest until I found it. Luckily, it very nice beer. Lots of flavor and some pretty bold flavor choices, but it works and still remains very drinkable. I always worry about sage because it gets overbearing if you are heavy handed, but this works nicely. I will absolutely be having this one again.
