COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a saison of sorts; hellaciously herbaceous and hopefully contagious. This was not a ready made ale. But it is a ready made collaboration. Meaning Stone and Victory are 2 breweries that are exactly like Dogfish in that they do/brew exactly what they love and they do/brew it exactly like no other brewery out there. (Love - lots of it in this bottle)

-Samuel A Calagione

Ale brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Woah! Drank side by side w dogfish brewed version- very distinct! Lots of sage accented by more hop aroma, more rosemary, less citrus. The hop takes over in the smell and taste- definitely prefer the textured mouthfeel of the DFH and balance to this hoppiness, more bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (9751) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2017
Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for sharing! The beer starts mild and fresh. Smooth, round and wheaty. The yeast is a bit funky and spicy, pepper, herbs, very dry. Long smooth wheaty dry aftertaste, round and refreshing, interesting! The herbs are there, fresh and round with the spicy yeast in the back. Nice!

tricksta_p (5346) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is very herbal with thyme, sage, grassy, yeast, lemon, green tea, mint, bittering hops, and light biscuity malt. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a fairly dry medium bitter finish. Body is medium. Very herbal, not quite they way I prefer my Saison, but this is well-brewed stuff.

Why did I think a beer brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme would taste good? Drinking this is like getting simoned right in the garfunkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alengrin (5884) - BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2017
Spiced (or rather ’herbed’) saison-style ale made in collaboration of three of America’s big and very influential names in the world of craft breweries, bottle at 77ships’s place, cheers. Thick, frothy, egg-white, stable head, hazy peach blonde robe with orangey tinge. Aroma of wet leather, unripe peach, green peppercorns, parsley, damp hay, stale urine but not in a bad way, soap, green tea, camomile, turnip - with thyme, rosemary and sage effectuating a ’dry green’ herbal note but hardly distinguishable from one another. Crisp fruity onset, peachy and pineapple-like sweetish notes, sourish touch as well, softish carbo, supple mouthfeel; bready maltiness sustains an earthy presence of the green herbs as well as something green tea-like in the finish, mildly bittering. Accomplished, no surprise seen its pedigree, and way more pleasant than expected based on the list of herbs - though I think adding four different ones is a bit unnecessary.

12oz brown bottle shared at RBAG ’17. Golden and hazy with barely any head. Nose - biscuit, wood, toasty, spices. Taste - grain, toast, spices. Mild, but interesting saison.
