2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This basic saison is lacking the majority of what makes farmhouse beers delicious. While crisp and easy dry, this brew is lacking a distinct, top tier Belgian spiciness. While Stone has proven worthy as west coast hop heads and stout masters, this style is still a mystery.

Pours with a light head and golden color. Aroma is very pleasant: coriander, banana, lemon. Highly carbonated. Taste has a black pepper finish. Goes a little better as it warms up. Lower score due to carbonation.

Draught at Antenna America. Pale gold with a fluffy head that goes quickly. Soft fruit and ginger aroma. Ginger dominates the flavour too much for my liking.

Bottle from giant eagle new Albany. Nose is banana and cereal. Smooth and crisp with banana and lavender and pepper all in there. Dry finish for sure. Ok but not amazing.

Bottle. Slightly hazy bright brass colored body with a long lasting and dense bright white head. A nose of herbs and hints of old leather are up front. I also got stone fruit and dried flowers. The taste was black tea and wood along with leather and wood. The finish was medicinal and a little spicy. A nicely done saison that is on the drier and spicier end of the spectrum.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear gold, coarse eggshell head. Coriander, bananas, clove on the nose. Came together nicely, but not boldly on the tongue like I expect from Stone. Earthy, some celery, mild berries and spice in a dry finish. Always love the painted bottles from Stone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Stone Brewing Tap Room, San Diego, CA
Pours yellowish golden with a small head. Aroma of zesty lemon, grapefruit and yeasty notes. Taste is zesty lemony and grapefruity with some doughy yeastiness and earthy notes. Finish is stuffy and slightly yeasty. Decent.
