4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very complex and refreshing. Heavy lavender and lemon thyme work together greatly along with a gentle balance of herby hops. Slight pepper finish. Delicious clove notes, strong reminiscence of a Belgian white. Best saison I’ve ever had, very unorthodox saison. Great on it’s own but I imagine you’d feel like royalty drinking this with food, perhaps a pig with an apple in its mouth.

Pour from a bottle is a nice clear gold with a white head. Has a slight earthy aroma. Taste is lemony with spice. Leaves a clean taste.

This is really quite good. A light fruitiness at first, with a fair amount of hops. A very very dry finish. And reasonably priced. Quite sessionable.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: pours with a large off white head that settles into a still large head but is very dense, the beer is a hazy orange color,
Aroma: bread, lemon, yeast, butter, strong citrus, some grass or pine, smells amazing
Taste: spicy, has a strong hop kick with average bitterness, citrus, bitter finish, bread, some faint alcohol
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste
Overall: I was very excited when I heard stone was making a saison and I was still impressed, very delicious, good bitterness, still highly drinkable, very aromatic, complex, really delivers in every way

A bit more hops than a traditional saison, but tons of interesting flavors! Leans to the sour side rather than the sweet side.

A very tasty Saison. It reminds me a bit of a Wit beer as well. Very good brew with a West Coast twist.

Lemon, pepper and ginger on the nose and then on the palate. Also flavors of light, bright fruit - apricots, maybe cherries. Long peppery, lemon drop finish. Very spicy, very flavorful, not for lovers of subtlety. I’m not one of them. Yum.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden orange with a one finger white head with some lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, citrus, freshly baked bread, thyme, ripe banana, light barnyard funk, and some thyme. Taste is similar to the aroma with a nice herbal spiciness and a moderate bitterness not normally seen with the style. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a bone dry, semi bitter, spicy, medium-long finish. Overall, a very tasty, unique, and drinkable beer that could easily become my go to Saison.
