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.

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle. A lightly hazy golden beer with a dense, off-white head. The aroma is rather spiced, cinnamon and cardamom I think, with some citrus and resin. It’s dry and medium bodied with a tad too much carbonation. Nice bitterness in the flavor, with citrus, some herbal and spiced hints, some black pepper and a faint chili-like touch. Orange zest hints and some pine cones. Long, fruity and lighlty spiced finish. Nothing impressive going on here. Guess it would have been more interesting without the spices. 150622

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Smells like lemon, grass, and herbs. Quite tangy and zesty. A little soap and paper...maybe some cracker. The flavor is kind of dry and spicy. A lot of lemon and herbs. Maybe some sage? Coriander, a little cracker, and soap. Weird finish I can’t quite describe.

Tmoney99 (12212) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average to large frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate citrus, herbal aroma. Medium body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium herbal sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded with a solid change of pace brew.
