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.

bhensonb (13614) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle from Beverages4Less. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a 4 fingers foamy whitge head. Has a rather spicey/gingery aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Very mild funk with a good dose that suggests ginger to me. Quite a flavor range. Maybe it just averages to gingerlikeness. Nah. I’m beginning to believe there’s rosemary in here. It’s pretty tasty stuff.

Ratman197 (12680) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, rosemary, thyme and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, rosemary, sage and thyme with as crisp dry lingering spiced finish. Would be much better with a little restraint on the herbs. Can you say "test batchs"?

mcberko (12432) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours cloudy yellow with a big white head. Big barnyard funk, citrus and hay on the nose. Flavour is full of both citrus fruits and plenty of coriander, with a noticeable funkiness that kicks in later and a slightly sour, yeasty and citrusy finish. Crisp, clean, refreshing palate. Very solid.
