Stillwater Classique

This 4.5% ABV beer from Stillwater Artisinal Ales appears to be a "session" saison and comes in 12 ounce cans. 

The beer pours a lightly hazy golden yellow in color. There is a tall head of thick, foamy white head, a bit like whipped egg whites. The aroma is floral, yeasty, with very light earth and funk, citrusy, mostly lemon, over toasted golden grain. The taste follows the aromas directly. It drinks light, yet smooth and creamy. The finish is dry and moderately bitter. I like session beers, this one is an “exquisite” session beer. This beer didn't generate a lot of words from me, but don't be fooled, it is definitely worth trying!
