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.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s taken camping. Spice and floral like a good season should be. But like most, it’s just okay.

Bottle from Spirit of Mt. Seymour, North Vancouver
Hazy golden color with small head. Light, dry, smooth beer, very refreshing, with a strong spicy character, starting from the coriander. I will remember this one more as a Spice Beer than a Saison, but it’s very good.
