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)

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

20100612 12oz bottle from Friendship in Abingdon. Light golden color with medium sized, fading white head. First whiff is a bunch of sage and parsley, something about it reminds me of pale, leafy celery hearts, and there’s a bit of orangey citrus. Palate isn’t very saison-like to me, more sticky and hoppy with prickly large eff. While the herbs are present throughout, I wouldn’t say they dominate. In fact, it just comes across mostly as a Belgian IPA to me. Some lingering rosemary woodiness. Eh, alright. The story is more interesting than the beer.

The delicous aroma of an earthy, spicy saison like I like. The appearance is light straw clear with not much of a head. The flavor starts out a bit bitter funk and then the earthy spices come in. The palate settles with that farmhouse smooth funk flavor.

12oz bottle 6/12/10 (Binny’s Plainfield)-46° in Snifter-Pours a hazy orangish amber with a decent fluufy white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, and spices. Taste of yeast, rosemary, citrus, and other spices. This light to medium bodied brew is pretty well balanced and quite tasy. Different saison. Nice job..

Poured out a golden color with a slight haze and tight white head. The nose is a pantry full of herbs, spice, and pepper. This is a highly complex beer packed with pockets of ’microflavors’. The body is light medium and quenching. This is a perfect beer to dissect after a nice summer day. Much of the same notes on nose are found on mouth along with a balanced feel.

Appreciate the effort on this one, even though there are numerous beers from each of these brewers that I like better. The one flavor that jumps right away is Rosemary, incorporated in a dominating yet balanced way. There are other herb notes as well, but hopped-up rosemary is what you’ll take away. A fun endeavor for these guys I’m sure, and a nice beer to sample.

12 oz bottle from Spirits on Rt 9 in TR. Poured a chill hazed glden straw color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is niiiiice, white pepper, sage, spruce, citrus hops and thyme. Medium bodied, medium carbonation and a dry finish that seems a little to dry for how thick the body is. Flavor is nice with lots of sage and white pepper, some grass and grapefruit as well. Wow this should be called Saison da shit because this stuff rocks!!

I almost wanted to copy after4ever’s words on this as I basically feel the same way after reading his review. Halfway through the bottle at the moment and have this spice fueled sensation lingering on my tongue. The perfume basking while sniffing jolted some sensors in my brain to wake me up a bit...quite enjoyable...perhaps one of my favs so far out of this collab series!

One of Stone’s reps was at Iron Abbey and recommended this one, when I heard about the collaboration I didn’t have much of a choice. Orange-gold pour with a medium white head. Lots of thick lacing on the glass. Floral aromas. A lot of herbs in the flavor, I just noticed now the "parsley/sage/rosemary/thyme" bit and I’d say that matches what I tasted. It didn’t blow me away, but it tasted damn good and it got all those herbal flavors across while still tasting like beer.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Bottle. Light golden orange pour with some white head. Barnyard yeast, some spices(sage and rosemary in particular) in the aroma. Saison is flavored with spices with the yeast flavoring taking a backseat.
