COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a saison of sorts; hellaciously herbaceous and hopefully contagious. This was not a ready made ale. But it is a ready made collaboration. Meaning Stone and Victory are 2 breweries that are exactly like Dogfish in that they do/brew exactly what they love and they do/brew it exactly like no other brewery out there. (Love - lots of it in this bottle)

-Samuel A Calagione

Ale brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Bottle. A slightly hazy gold pour with a thick and fluffy off-white head. The herbal aroma is dominated by rosemary and thyme. Sage and parsley are present in the background along with some grapefruits, rinds, and a bit of lemon. Goes down thin to medium-bodied, fairly crisp, and refreshing. Semi-sweet bready qualities upfront taste-wise. A yeasty middle with hints of that rock hard bubblegum you find in old packs of baseball cards. Finishes kinda tart with grapefruits, zesty orange peels, and some lemon. Very herbaceous throughout with all the aforementioned ingredients present here and there. THIS is what it’s all about. Creativity and quality like this always makes me wanna start brewing up my own shit.

Pours a pale golden yellow color with a soapy white head. Has an aroma of citrus, grass, and spice. Spice dominates on the nose. Has a lemon zest, citrus sweet taste. Some bitterness. Not a fan of the spices used. Too dominant.

Good example of a saison. Smooth and light. Great summer beer. On tap at Iron Abbey.

12oz bottle from WLV... pours a mostly transparent pale yellow brown with a moderate,fluffy soapy white head... aroma is chock full of spice with the most of it being rosemary and thyme. perhaps a little bit overdone on the spice front and might be better suited for a pizza. fruity belgian saison yeast esthers in the background but play much less or a role but add somewhat of a release to the abundance of spice.... flavors hold up a little better with the fruitier saison aspects and a dry lingering bitter finish. the mid-palate again is quite spice-centric, like the nose, and takes away from its enjoyability. exuberent carbonation gives it some life but everything reverts back to the spices.

Light hazy golden pour white head ..... Smells like a spice rack very herbal aroma ..... smells mostly like parsley ..... taste of herbs and spicey with some lemon .... not much else its like drinking a salad .... the herbs linger in the finish ..... I really enjoyed this brew, its very different and not heavy ..... Shocked these three breweries come together and its not a hoppy beer

Draft at Obriens. Brillian dark orange hue, modest headband creamy lacing. Nose is spice-tastic.... Jasmine, coriander, orange peel, honeysuckle. Flavor is light fruit esters... Pears and apples... Matched together with those delicious summer spices.... Jasmine and cinnamon and birds of paradise (literally), amidst underlying grainy malt with hints of hop bitterness, finishes with a touch of goldenrod dipped in rosewater. Light-medium body, modest carbonation, slick texture. Cry freedom Belgium, the Americans are coming to emancipate you(r beer styles)... Sam&Co have done it again, opting to play inside the boundaries of the saison style instead of peeing all over it, all Hail the Buff!!!

Pours gold, with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, spices, and yeast. Flavor is herbs/spices, grapefruit, and some sugar. Surprisingly easy to drink for 6.8%

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2010
12 oz – The Wine Source. Clear gold, white creamy head. Floral rosemary and grassy-sage aromas warm to swirls of peppery citrus and hints of mint. Well balanced herbals round with a touch of peppery hop spice. Medium bodied, zesty carbonation, fresh herbal finish. So many possible food pairings for this, but personally a standard margherita pizza would do it just right. Very well crafted as this is quite the unique and tasty saison…

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Clear, though not sparkling yellow. Nice two finger creamy white head. Earthy-sweet herbal aroma. No typical saison yeastiness. Herbal, bitter-hoppy, bready sweet, wholly odd and not at all like any saison that I have ever had. A bit too much herbalness for my tastes and now I have the Simon and Garfunkel ear-worm in my head.

obguthr (5579) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Grapefruit peel nose, moderate strength with funk undertones and herbal accents. Hazy yellow, thick fizzy white head. Tart lemon and grapefruit peel flavor with hints of funk. Bitter grapefruit peel and herb finish. Very citrusy and herbal, with less of an emphasis on the brett. Delicious, refreshing, and distinctive.
