Like itís two brothers this is a thanksgiving beer. Thanksgiving you say? Yes, thanksgiving. You see thanksgiving is marked by giving thanks for all the great things in life and copious amounts of sage, just like thus beer. Unlike itís two brothers this one is cloudy and has noticeable sediment. Did I mention the sage? I like it alright, but what the hell do I know about beer?

Ar- hops and herbs dominate the nose, bright lemon and orange mix well with rosemary sage and a wispy floral component
Ap- clear and golden with a big white head that lingers at the edges of the glass
Fl- malt sweetness up front gives way to citrus notes, well balanced hop bitterness and a dry peppery finish. Hints of the herbs show up through Rosemary
Mf- soft and coating, hint of alcohol, lacking a bit in carbonation,
Ov- very nice beer. Wonderful nose, nice flavor, would love a bit more of the herbs and much more carbonation.

On tap at PreFunk. Pours out a nice clear golden with soft creamy head, lazy carbonation. Slightly oily, creamy mouth feel, yeasty, grassy aroma and taste. Mild spice on the back on the finish leaves some tang lingering.

Very woody and herby in scent. Slightly foggy yellow color which is my favorite beer color for some weird reason. Starts off slightly malty then the rosemary and thyme come through beautifully with a Nice smooth spicy finish. Medium body with wonderful crisp carbonation that tingles throughout the whole profile. Love all 3 breweries great collaboration to push the boundaries of where beers can go. Nice work.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a clear, golden hue, with a presentable layer of white, bubbly head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was a touch of yeast that was quickly displaced by pronounced grass & greenery, herbs, resin, & spice. Piney rosemary, thyme, and lemongrass were keys, with only a hint of sage showing some herbal earthiness. Rather light bodied, with only moderate carbonation, the taste contributed some earthy & lingering bitterness. Basically, the whole essence of the style was blown out of the water by the Simon & Garfunkel theme, and would have appreciated a little more body and livelier effervescence as my initial review of the Stone rendition revealed. Must have been overwhelmed by the grouping of heavy hitters back then.

Bottle, memory banks rate, thanks to jeevan. I think via San Diego Steve. Pours clear pale gold with a thin white head. Strong herbal aromas, parsley and rosemary stand out. Taste is bitter, very strong herbs, a bit too much for me.

Bottle. Slightly hazy, bright golden with a fluffy off-white head. Lacing is fairly thick. Aroma of citrus, herbs (I love rosemary), straw, Belgian yeast, and spice. Herbal, spicy, yeasty flavor; a little bitter. Medium bodied, smooth, a touch dry. Very nice.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours light lager light yellow with a big white head that laces. Nose from the bottle was kerosene (!). Yeah, I know but if this is what these herbals do, try again. Or, itís a funky saison yeast. In any event, it was strange and the nose continued in the glass. Taste was attenuated saison with herbs. The beer is dry as a saison should be. The after taste is lingering bitterness. At the end of the drink, the nose filled the Weihenstephaner weiss glass - nice since most beers donít. I got used to the nose. Must be the 6.8% ABV :>). Last year I brewed seven saisons with various spices and different yeasts and none of them had a nose approaching this. 12 oz bottle Brewed on 2/18/16 More cans!
