I really like the aroma and flavor of this one, but there is a funky dry bitterness in the finish that I donít love. Iím not sure - maybe this is getting a bit nitpicky... it certainly is drinkable - though when I think of a saison, Iím not thinking it will be close to 7%...

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a very quick white soapy head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma is big spice flowers like lavender and coriander. Taste is more the same with a nice farmyard saison coming through the end. Palate is thin crisp and fizzy. Not bad at all!

tennisjoel (1223) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Golden pour with minimal head. Aroma of vegatables, lemon, citrus, herbal. Off flavor that detracts. Somewhat dry palate. The one thing that I donít like is there is an artificial component to this beer, perhaps it is the spices used. While not overpowering, it is still present. Lower tier in the saison style, for me at least.

GenDV138 (3367) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2015
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Clear light golden yellow with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of herbs, spice, light citrus and funk. Tastes of herbs including rosemary and thyme, spice, light funk, some citrus fruit and peel. Medium body with a dry finish. Tasty herbaceous saison.

radio_nowhere (1145) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle into tulip glass, hazy darker golden color with white head. Aroma notes of farmhouse yeast, pale malt sweetness, parsley, citrus and light spices. Taste adds bread, sage, rosemary, lemon zest, mild fruit, somewhat tangy, grass and light pine/earthy bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, soft with herbal sweet finish. Canít compare to other variants but this is nice complex saison.

Finally decided to taste the third version of the collab beer, after having not liked the other two. Indeed, these beers were a large part of why I initially shied away from saisons as a whole style, which was stupid of me but still. Bottle->tulip. Bright gold with big frothy white head. A: tons of herbal spice, grains. T: herbs and spices. Too much spice cabinet buffet in here for me. Yuck.

From a bottle, medium gold in color. Smells tangy and herbal. Tart and fresh at first sip with strong rosemary notes. Refreshing and perfect herbal saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
same base recipe as the Stone and DFH versions, but the aroma was all skunk...and in a brown bottle nonetheless. flavor much better, but definitely different. not sure what they did different in the process, but easily the weakest of the three. 2012 release an improvement...still my least favorite of the 3, but better

Backlog rating on 8-18-2012. This bottled beer pours a small white head that is fully lasting, transparent yellow body, very little carbonation observed, and spotty amount of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, citrus hops, fruity, and spicy. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops, spicy, herbs, fruity, sweet, malt, and has a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer has a lot going on and I probably missed some aromas and flavors. This is a Saison that is not your typical Saison given all the various aromas and flavors. Thus, it is worth trying.

I almost wanted to copy after4everís words on this as I basically feel the same way after reading his review. Halfway through the bottle at the moment and have this spice fueled sensation lingering on my tongue. The perfume basking while sniffing jolted some sensors in my brain to wake me up a bit...quite enjoyable...perhaps one of my favs so far out of this collab series!
