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.

gururyan (715) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Poured from bottle, lakeside, after riding singletrack with friends, paired with brats off the grill. Quite floral and fruity, lemon aroma and body like a wit. Decent brew, but not as awesome as other Stone offerings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gespuccian (107) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2016
A pretty good saison. Aroma has some citrus, yeast, a little bit of funk. Pours a lighter yellow with lots of carbonation. A finger of head throughout the beer. Taste is citrus-forward, with yeast, a little of that farmhouse wildness, and some floral notes on the end. Slightly sweet, an almost creamy effervescence on the tongue.
