In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Stillwater Artisinal Ales Cellar Door

Aroma: “Big sage, pine, camphor, lemon, and mint with some fruity esters. Medium citrus aroma of grapefruit and orange with some light pear.”

Flavor: “Sage comes through strong with a slight medicinal lemon spice behind it. Moderately sweet then slowly fades into a sweet and bitter finish. Herbal notes really shine in this beer. Carbonation is low and balances the herbal and malt sweetness well. Dry and crisp. Finishes clean yet hoppy.”

Overall: “Sage comes through nicely with some lemon and spicy components. The sweetness and low carb keep it from being quite as refreshing as it could be, but that sweetness also helped balance the herbal sage character. A bit heavy in the finish and has a fair amount of bitterness. A great juxtaposition between herbal notes and fruity hops characteristics.”
