3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a hazy light golden brass. Small head that dissipates quickly.
S - Lots of fresh cut herbs-oregano, rosemary and grapefruit. Tangy yeast.
T - Bright fruit - strawberries and apples. Has some soft spice mixed with garlic notrs. Prickly hop bitterness. Tart honey hay. No funkiness.
A very sharp and crisp beer. Strange for the style. Very herbal and quite refreshing. Good drinking but probably wouldn’t seek this out.
Serving type: on-tap

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle from Ryan and Casey’s Liquors marked 2012 on bottle neck. Tulip glass shows hazy gold with light soapy head. Nose is all the herbs the brews mention. Mostly sage. Flavor again is very herbal and Earthy. Light cracker and lemon notes. Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme are all there with some pale malts. Overall for me it is thirst quenching but I can’t drink a large amount of it. One and done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Catching up on some old ratings 2010. Appears bright golden yellow with a touch of haze. Big off white head with nice lace. Smell starts with fruit then pine with lots of spicy notes. Taste is quite herbal - almost overpowering. Some light malt sweetness in the middle finishing quite dry. Light/medium body with tight carbonation which makes it pretty smooth. I liked everything except for the punch of herbs in my mouth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a yellow orange, right in between the two. Aroma is pine, citrus, spices and grass. Taste is doughy sweet with earthy tangy undertones. More complex then I thought. Nice bitter dry finish. Very refreshing and I think underrated .

A nice citrus aroma with a touch of bitter hops and alcohol. Taste is very similar to the smell with pepper. A good beer but nothing too special for a saison.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz (STONE) bottle. Vintage 2012. Light orange color. Thin, rocky, white head. Aroma of a sage flavored, white pizza. Noticeable thyme in the nose, along with some oregano-like florals. I love rosemary flavored breads. Soft scents of fresh herbs is a nice way to welcome me to this glass. Nice malt backbone, like most Stone beers. Flavor of water with a very high mineral content. Salty & herbal. Flavors of herbs like rosemary, mostly sage, some thyme, nice hops. Finishes with a spicy bite. Tingling bitterness, some bitter citrus rind, and sage. Loads of herbs with nice hops. Its a Herbal American Pale!

Bottle. Stone lead version. Similar aroma to the other two versions with earthy herbal notes. I would say this is the hoppiest of the three versions. Very nice collaboration between Stone, Dogfish and Victory.
