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.

jookos (5376) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle (viking amorella). Yellow hazy. Pretty well spiced nose. Coriander, camomille (?), citrus peely, sorta good wit- spicing with lots of saisonny dusty flouryness. Med bodied, well carbonated, flavourful intense. Flavour follows aroma pretty much, light hay malty. Pretty nice flavoured, bit witty spiced, saison.

Gold coloured with a massive white head. Beautiful Belgium complex funk on the nose with plenty of coriander spice. The taste is less complicated but still that funky, spicy taste (hint of chilli) with a surprisingly bitter finish (for a saison). Refreshing. Rated by BrewTom
