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)

Bottle. Pours a straw yellow, with a fine, moderate-volume head. Aroma of citrus and slightly skunky hops. The flavor is more hoppy than herbal - I can see it as a saison, but it also has some pilsener character. I can vaguely pick up the rosemary and maybe some parsley, but not sage or thyme (hey, just like the song!). Somewhat too bitter for my tastes, with an astringent mouthfeel. Not crazy about it, but it’s an interesting offering from a rock-solid group of breweries.

Hazy gold with big, foamy, white head / Nose of fruit, herb, and spice / Medium body, malty and creamy but with excellent, bitter, finish / Flavors of banana, orange peel, resin, dry hops, and subtle herb (parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme) / Superb, a surprisingly effective combination.

Definitely not my kind of beer. Pours a pale wheat and is very appealing visually. However, the additional spices used in this brew are overpowering. They would complement a beer with more malt or slightly more hoppiness. I like to drink beer not drink part of my spice rack.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear gold w 2f white head. Nose is huge black pepper, hopcit, spicy floral. I question the olfactory prowess of anyone giving this nose less than a 9. This nose kicks your nose up the ass with tons of spice, orange zesty spice, hops, and florals. Tastes pale malty, spicy, floral, on the dry side, extremely complex. No funk here, but tons of spice, hops, citrus, and florals. A very good and one of the most extreme examples of this style I have yet quaffed, although purists are going to bitch that this isn’t a saison at all, and they may be right, but I can’t say I give a shit either way. All I know is that I’d drink this any day of the week.

light golden, light white head. Aroma is mineral, grassy, lemon zest, some spiciness. Flavor is lightly spicy with hints of grassy fresh hops and lightly aromatic herbs, sage and rosemary are most detectable. Some light rosemary, the herbs in this do it wonderful justice. YUM

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 2, 2010
A nice brew from James- thanks bro. Clear golden pour with a white pillowy head. The aroma is riddled with spice- tons of evergreen spice: parsley and herbal sage/rosemary are quite prevalent. Beyond the epic spice character, you’ll find a nice citrus fruit and some marijuana notes. Very well balanced and proportioned. Also very odd for the traditional incarnations of the style. The flavor presents a deliciously spicy character with a nice acidic citrus character. Lots of evergreen and dank hop notes- a perfectly fresh brew- though not at all in line with the style. The palate is medium to full bodied with a spicy and resinously dank mouth feel. Amazing, though not a traditional saison at all.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle... Lightly hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that never fully dissipates. The nose is big-time herbal – rosemary, sage, fresh basil and white pepper… smells like my wife’s herb garden. Medium-bodied with a mildly oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor offers sweet pale malts, freshly boiled herbs and ballsy hop bitterness. Herbal, bitter, drying finish. Refreshing and unique. Kick ass saison. Bottle courtesy of giarcsr!

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2010
12 oz bottle from Binnys (Orland Park, IL). Pours a lively well carbonated gold with a touch of darkness to it, thick offwhite head bubbles and stays moderate sized, soapy cream, laces ok. Aromas are piney and of herbs, honey and cereal grains, a light floral hopping, dusty, with a touch of fruity ester appeal. Initial is lighter bodied with a touch of pine and spriggy mint up front, moving into cereal grains, vanilla, florals, a touch of herby spice, rosemary is more noticeable with sage coming in behind. A touch of mint, pine, florals, grainy malts, a bit of fruity ester that dies out. Dry, herbs, light florals in the finish with some lemon and grapefruit making an entrance and sticking around a bit. Interesting, but not what I’d personally like in my Saisons. An interesting experiment, dry and herb-ridden, a lighter hopping
