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.

Pineapple yellow color. Puffy pillow of head. with the right pour and the right temperature it can look downright majestic. Wonderful lace curtain. Aroma is Grains of paradise and horsey/basement stuff. Just a touch of lemon rind. A very pronounced mineral component, even in the nose. Itís not "easy," but itís rewarding. Plenty of bready yeast too. The taste is first some lemon and a touch of orange peel. The citrus is mild, but a needed counterpoint to the very pronounced yeast flavor. Marshmallow sugars. Very, very peppery Prickly feel; almost has a slight black pepper burn on the way down. Medium-to-heavy body. Iím a fan of this one: itís bright but not saccharine; earthy but not dour. Itís the best of the Stone 12-pack I bought. (Pale 2.0; Arrogant B; Go To IPA).

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Crisp hazy golden coloured body with a pale yellow glow and a thick, very dense off-white head, about six centimetres tall. Aroma of grass, herbs, hay, dry malt and a bit of yeast - about right for the style. Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and floral notes throughout with a dry malt quality and a lot of coriander seed noticeable. Aftertaste shows a nice profile, but the complexity simply isnít there and itís just too dry. Overall, a good attempt, but another decent beer at best from the big brewery out West. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 02-August-2015 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 22-October-2015.

damzz (391) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow-light brown with a white head that leaves lacing. Nose is fruity saison. Taste is light saison yeast with lemon overtones. After tate is slight bitterness with pepper. The pepper is very pronounced at first but moderates with airing. This is an unusual saison with the pepper after taste. 12 oz bottle

Hanoi (670) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle. Nose is herbal lemon, slight mango and papaya, herbal hops, slight spice, honey. Taste is a herbal lemon note which is quite bitter from the lemon thyme, herbal, floral, the lavender is quite pronounced which is not to my taste, light pepper and spice in the finish. Further sips bring notes of licorice and mineral, and an almost spicy note. Itís a decent saison but too fussily seasoned for my palate.

355 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, herbal. Taste is fruity, herbal and lot of spices. But also had the feeling there was a bit of floor cleaner in there, so thatís why I canít say Iím a big fan.

Jado (703) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 11, 2015
355 ml bottle. Hazy orange with a rocky white head that collapses to a cap. Aromas of lemon, lime juice, flowers, pepper and fresh cut grass. Taste delivers everything from the aroma with an amped up lemon zest note. Clean finish leads to a spicy aftertaste. Not your archetypal saison but a decent beer all the same.

Golden beer with a foamy head and a sour fruit aroma. It does taste strong but not overly so. Sour and fruity taste with a tangy citrus hit to it. Crisp and could have gone being a touch colder. Really nice though.
