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.

Sdaniel90 (861) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAY 26, 2016
Botle, 355ml. Sparking paleish golden with a large frothy offwhite head. Citrus and yeasty aromas, hints of lemondrop, flowers. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Low sweetness, with medium sourness and low bitterness. Acidic citrus character into a spicy and acidic finsh. Very drinkable and a spicy twist on the saison.

Gespuccian (114) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2016
A pretty good saison. Aroma has some citrus, yeast, a little bit of funk. Pours a lighter yellow with lots of carbonation. A finger of head throughout the beer. Taste is citrus-forward, with yeast, a little of that farmhouse wildness, and some floral notes on the end. Slightly sweet, an almost creamy effervescence on the tongue.

Vignale (3204) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2016
Flaska från SBs beställningssortiment. En kryddig, örtig och blommig saison. Inte jättemycket saisonkaraktär, men lätt, friskt och ganska torr och med mycket karaktär från kryddorna. Timjan, lavendel, citrus, hö, gräs, lite parfymig, relativt stor beska för stilen. Annorlunda och trevlig.

thomat (3228) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2016
On tap @ The Rover, Gbg. Cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Fruty and malty tones. Fruit, malt, spices and hops. Medium body with a balanced finish.

OldMrCrow (2361) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine.

Deep muddy gold pour with a nearly white head. The aroma is a blend of lemon peel, esters, and lavender. The flavor is peppery foremost, mild cracker sweetness behind a blast of spices with hints of hay and dust if one imagines hard enough. But the spices absolutely wreck the beer. At first sip it’s tolerable, but as the beer warms in the glass....yuck.

tl;dr summary: Fuck this beer. Next time I’ll just suck on a Ricola.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6537) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright golden color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered but left minimal lacing. The aroma was lemon, lemon zest and a bit of yeast. The flavor was tart lemon, yeast, lime, pepper and a strong bubblegum presence. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

Maersk (128) - MOLDOVA - APR 23, 2016
Clear golden color. Small head. Smells spices, honey, wheat. Tastes candy. More spices in the aftertaste (pepper). A little bit heavy for saison.

grubypawel (322) - - APR 23, 2016
Pour hazy golden with a lot of white head. The phenolic charcter is in the aroma, but it’s not too strong. Full-bodied and fun.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights
