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 isnít your everyday saison. Itís our saisonó100% Stone. Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.

Pours a hazy golden-yellow with a foamy head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spice, yeasts, and herb aromas. Taste is much the same with herb and yeast flavors with very heavy pepper in the finish. There is a mild amount of herb bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall its too spicy, starts of nice but takes a nose dive in the second half.

12 oz from a sampler pack. Serious bubbles and frothy white head. Lemon and wheat aromas. Flavor is light and refreshing with lemon again and a wild light band aid sort of yeast flavor. Finish is a little bitter with some band aid medicine again.

Very complex and refreshing. Heavy lavender and lemon thyme work together greatly along with a gentle balance of herby hops. Slight pepper finish. Delicious clove notes, strong reminiscence of a Belgian white. Best saison Iíve ever had, very unorthodox saison. Great on itís own but I imagine youíd feel like royalty drinking this with food, perhaps a pig with an apple in its mouth.

Bottle. Pours a fairly hazy amberish color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a nice mix of that nice saison funk and some floral and citrus notes, just the way a saison should be. Taste is floral and fresh, with only slight bits of sour. Not a bad drink.

Bottle. Nice aroma of bread and esters, cloves. Clear golden body. Flavor has tones of bananas, cloves, with a touch of heat at the end. Finishes too hot and jumbled

Wasn't sure if Stone could pull of a subtle saison, but they did. Slightly peppery, creamy, so nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Bottle Shop Bermondsey - Londkn. Pours clear yellow-gold with a big, fluffy white head. Nice crispy wheat in the nose with accents of herbs and dry saison yeast. Medium sweet flavor with nips of alcohol, pale bread, biscuits, grass, hay, lemon. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Light warmth to finish, some pale bready sugars, mild herbal bitterness, some meringue, hints of pepper. Tasty.
