COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In spring 2011, Stone bought the farm, literally, taking over 19 acres of fertile Southern California soil where we now grow pristine fruits, vegetables, herbs and more for our Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens restaurants. A taste of our homespun farm-to-tableism is provided in this farmhouse ale stoked with lemon zest, plus lemon thyme and lavender straight from Stone Farms. This spring-to-summer saison is citric and herbal on the palate with a dry, peppery finish. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison. It’s our saison—100% Stone. Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.

floydslip (261) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Light, somewhat cloudy copper beer with a thin bright white head that disappears almost immediately. Sour nose of apple cider, light vinegar, and citrus. Flavor is bright and follows the aroma with apple juice, lemon, and rice vinegar followed by a light bitterness. Pretty good beer, not great.
