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.

tightslice (175) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at Martin’s West in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is spicy yeast, floral perfume, clove bubblegum and other belgian-style funks. Taste is lemon rinds, some floral and spiced gum with a nice hoppy / bitter finish. Definitely felt like a Stone saison and I like their point of view on this one.

Alpha10 (323) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
2014/08/23 - Pours a hazy, orange-honey colour with a foamy white head that quickly vanishes. Moderate lacing. Aroma is lemon, funk, yeast esters, coriander, spice and floral notes. Taste is lemon, funk, yeast, earthy notes, pepper, coriander and more floral and herbal notes. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with lively carbonation and a crisp, drying finish. Light and refreshing. Found it more floral than most saisons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle. i love busted six pack areas of beer stores. allows me to pay a bit more for a single, but not risk 10 bucks on an unknown quantity. so that brings us to this: pours a hazed effervescent yellow. can smell the spices from a ways off. lavender and thyme are very apparent. floral flavor with something like melon or some cucumber stuff i’ve had in the past. bit of a waxy mouthfeel. the coating on my tongue is not pleasant. i like the flavor well enough, nice spicey yeast finish is good. but it is the mouthfeel that makes this a one time purchase for me.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a thick bubbly white head. The aroma is lemon and pepper. Taste is light honey mixed with sharp tart bitterness that lingers.

Crisp gold pour with a white head. Nose is bright hops, grass, florals, and lemon. Easy palate, florals, grass, bitter hops, smooth finish.

snoot8726 (15) - Terre Haute, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Tap. Pour is a golden Orange with a decent head. Smells of spice and lemon grass. Tastes like a saison should taste nothing outrageous just a quality brew with some spice and coriander that’s lasts a while.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Short Pump, opened 6/20/14. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of yeast, spice, candied citrus, citrus, tropical fruits, lemongrass, pale malt. The taste is herbal notes, almost medicinal, citrus, tropical fruits, yeast. Medium bodied, slight lingering spice, and that medicinal note is not very welcome.
