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.

VRBJG (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2011
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-)

Odland (137) - NORWAY - FEB 10, 2011
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.

light orange pour with a thick white head. Aroma is, well, weird. kind of like a spice cabinet. taste is herbal in nature, but the finish is overwhelming. i would expect a collaboration between these 3 brewers to produce something amazing, but too many cooks can spoil the soup as evidenced by this

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 12 oz. bottle from BevMo Long Beach. Aroma is very spicy and herbal. My first thought was opening up a spice drawer in the kitchen. Hops are also very present. Color is a gold yellow with a white foam head that quickly dissipates. Taste is very herbal upfront with a solid hop bitterness in the finish. The interplay of the spices and hops is very interesting. Solid body as well, feels like a mouthful. Overall a very unique and enjoyable brew. Very refreshing for the alcohol content, which is masked very well. Will definitely buy again.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
SD trip: Cask temperature, very hazy light orange with white head. Nose had cooking spices and banana over wheat and malts. Flavor was mostly similar whet malts with obvious rosemary and sage and some citrus fruit (hops?), a bit like roasted chicken (a beer can chicken with this might just work). I guess I expected much more out of a collaboration between these 3 brewers.
