3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Wasn't sure if Stone could pull of a subtle saison, but they did. Slightly peppery, creamy, so nice.
