4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow with medium white head. Bubbles are a bit too big. Aroma is resin, citrus, caramel. Taste is hops (herbsl), with a bit of bitterness, medium sweetness and malt. Spices (parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme) they use are not very present here, but is better less than to much. Overall is well balance, a saison with a lot of hops, reminds me "Saison Station 55" from Hopfenstark.

Bottle. pour contains tons of head with a cloudy yellow color. taste is overly dominate of spices with a citrus back taste. The citrus is very tasteful with a few of the spice, but it seems there may be a few spices that don’t mix well with others.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
crazy aroma, very herbal with strong scents of all the spices used (parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme) I also picked up an acidic tomato aroma along with a sweet maltiness. pours light yellow with a large resilient head. taste strong with the herbs mentioned above along with sour lemon citrus, banana, and a bitter pine finish. Truly one of a kind.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a nice golden color with large white head. Very nice aroma of spices and citrus but more so a very strong aroma of lemon pepper. So far so good. Very nice taste. Has the spice flavor that I enjoy and was expecting. I probably didn’t have this beer cold enough but was still very nice. I love the spice and pepper flavor. Good good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours crystal clear pale yellow with a thick white foamy head. Smells extremely herbal. Tastes herbal....more bitter than I would guess. This is not like the saisons I usually love...still this a well done, different brew.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Very good beer. Pours a pale gold with mild head. Some herby notes in the aroma. Hop bitterness and flavor, but that is made up for by the herbal flavors, the sage and rosemary are light, but noticeable with a decent malt backbone. Very enjoyable collaboration.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow slightly orange color. Night white, long lasting head. Spicy with a slightly sweet (almost honey) undernote in the palate. Much less herbal and spicy than Victory and DFH’s. Slightly hoppier but overall well balanced. This is a bit more drinkable than the other two, especially if your not a huge Saison or herbal fan. Overall (A-)

Tap @ Stone Brewery, Cali. Pours golden with a good head. Lots of spices in here. Sage, parley, lemon and rosemary. By far the best saison I have ever tasted. Must get a hold of the other two versions.
