I had this right after the Dogfish Head version and there were some subtle differences between the two. This one had a less impressive aroma but still wonderful. The appearance was a little darker with a smaller head. The flavor was also quite similar but I gave it a slightly higher score due to the presence of a bit of vanilla. Both had very nice after tastes. Can’t wait to get the Stone version.

Pours bright gold into a pils glass. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim leaving slight sheets. Sweet meadow and caramel aromas. Flowery hay upfront turning to a crisp, dry bitter saaz and hot yeast finish.

Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. The color is a clear yellowish/orange with some slight white head and some slight lacing. The smell is a strong spicy, earth flavor that must be coming from the sage and some nice funky yeast flavor. The taste is hoppy with more green flavor. There is a nice herb feel that is mixed with a nice hoppy flavor that spins on the tongue. Some citrus flavor brings it all in for a wonderful rounded beer. The feel of this beer is light but has a nice smooth flavor that goes down with some presence. The flavor of the nose and the flavor in the taste come together to give a great earthy tone. This speaks summer and is really placed well in this season.

Slightly hoppyer then Dogfish... 12oz bottle poured yellowish sparkling gold. Smells of rosemary, pine, and sage. Very Herbal with a heavy parsely and rosemary taste. Clean finsh hides alcohol very well. thin feel, light body, dispite everything thats going on inside this beer. Amazing if you like herbs. Slow cooking Ribs in a dutch oven with this beer

Appearance is clear yellow with a thin white head. Great aroma of vegetables, pale malts, and grass. Taste has a lot of lemon, with some grapefruit. Vegetable and grass are also present. A good amount of herbal spices. Overall pretty good! I liked the dogfish head version, and this is about as good.

HonkeyBra (3643) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Golden orange pour with a very slight head. Aroma of spruce, herbs, some citrus. Light pale malts and a bit of earthy fresh grass. A bit of mint too with some dough. Flavor is herbal, decently bitter, with light doughy sweetness. Lively carbonation over a light to medium bodied. Finishes very bitter. Pretty nice, on par with the Dogfish head version.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle: Pours a transparent bright golden with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a fresh herbal and grapefruity hoppy nose with a hint of lightly biscuity sweet malt. Starts with good fullness and a touch of doughy sweetness with a nice fresh resiny citrus hop balance and bitterness with a floral lemongrass and black pepper complexity. An enjoyable and quite drinkable saison.
