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.

Bottle into tulip glass, cloudy bright golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of peppery spice, hay, clove, banana and some bubblegum. Taste adds citrus, lemon zest, herbal and light grass bitterness. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with funky citrus finish. Nice body, pretty solid if not unremarkable saison.

jamestulloch (2199) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Hazy golden body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of white pepper, bread and melon. Flavour of dough, lime and herbs. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. More bready than zesty.

mikesaum (654) - Newark, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Pours a gold orange hue with a decent sized white head. Aroma is a bit faint, spice notes, mostly clove, some banana, fruity esters. Taste is a good bit stronger than the aroma, clove is more pronounced, banana, bubblegum, a bit herbal, finishes dry and slightly bitter. Not too bad, but not my favorite Saison.

swillguzzler99 (154) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2015
From a 12oz bottle. Pours a straw with nice quarter inch head. A bit more carbonation and it could be in a beer commercial. Weak nose, earthy and fruity. Goes down smooth with a tad of lingering spice/clove. Good mouth feel. A yummy beer.

ALLOVATE (2650) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Bright, medium gold with a mere film of white for a head that does manage a fine lace. Big hit of banana in the aroma along with berry sherbet, bubblegum, mace and clove, and a touch of cheap, floral perfume - nice! Quite creamy and soft on the palate but well attenuated and very light in body to the point of being almost watery. Quite phenolic with a rough, clove-like clap on the swallow. The banana is here but a sour, citric tang intrudes on it. Tastes medicinal and almost like a Deutsche aperitif than a farmhouse Saison. It went down with ease but didnít quite excite. Meh! (12fl.Oz, bottled 31/05/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle. Unintentionally aged a year or so. Says to enjoy fresh, but an excellent quality of grassy sweetness, almost spicy yeast really makes this amazing despite (or maybe because of) the age on it.

Petkus331 (366) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Very bright aroma of lemon, clove, pepper, and banana. Very foamy. Tastes well balanced sweet malt and bitter european hops. Fizzy palate. Overall, really good.

jb (2538) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Itís good, but I donít get a lot of yeast influence. Mostly spice influence. Refreshing but not my favorite saison or stone product. Appearance is clear with minimal head or lace.
