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.

2012 vintage, bottle into snifter. Aroma is vegetal lemon with rind and a dry yeast character. Opaque dark yellow gold with rocky white head, subsides leaving thick lacing. Dry herbal taste. Lemon rind. Refreshing. Medium body. Interesting.

Bottle. Herbaceous aroma with notes of citrus and some hoppiness. Pours straw colored with a thin off white head and good lacing. Highly carbonated mouthfeel with light citrus as well as big herbal flavors which include rosemary and sage most notably. Finishes smooth with the acidic citrus lingering on the palate with the herbs. Good, but it has a lot going on.

HIGHB4LL (595) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12 oz bottle, 2012 vintage from the Pour House in Montrose, CO. Appearance: finger white head, golden clear, head is gone to slight film almost instantly. Aroma: spicy hops, sage, thyme, rosemary, sweet fruit, light floral hops. Palate: light body, average carbonation, oily texture, light spicy, light bitter spice finish. Taste: light sweet fruit, into a sage and thyme herb and spice taste, on into a light rosemary spice and a bit of spicey hops bitter finish. Overall, very complex, love the way the spices are balanced in this beer, very enjoyable and refreshing.

I has this from a bottle at home in a snifter. It pours clear with a modest head and has a muted spicy aroma and taste. It is moderately sweet with light bitterness and a finish that is not as dry as standard saison a. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a clear golden yellow color with an ample amount of small carbonated bubbles that were seen rising. A one finger white foamy head formed and dissipated within a minute. The smell definitely had the sage up front and did allow a nice sweet refreshing fruitiness to combine and invade. Light lemon surrounds. The taste was sweet and herbal combined nicely. There was a light herbal aftertaste that led to a slight refreshing finish. On the palate, this one sat a light on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation finishes smooth and refreshing. Overall, I say this was a good saison I’d have again.

Light hansa gold color, small head. Big sage sweet nose. It's like an Italian pasta spice galore nose. Herbal hops, lemony refreshing kick. Quick vanishing with a bit lingering herbal note on the top of the roof. Nice summer brew.

Pours a clear pilsner yellow with a bit of wispy head. Nose is lemon, herbal, parsley, black pepper, basil? Taste is extremely herbal, peppery, lemon, minty, sage. Not terrible, not good though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
