COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its 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.

mcberko (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours cloudy yellow with a big white head. Big barnyard funk, citrus and hay on the nose. Flavour is full of both citrus fruits and plenty of coriander, with a noticeable funkiness that kicks in later and a slightly sour, yeasty and citrusy finish. Crisp, clean, refreshing palate. Very solid.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 8, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with two fingers of fluffy white head. S: Smells quite herbaceous. A lot of sage and quite a bit of pepper as well. A bit of lemon and rosemary is present as well. The malts are really overwhelmed and theres a touch of dryness to the nose. T: Pepper, sage, and rosemary are strong up front. The peppery quality continues all the way to the finish. A touch lemony with a very herbal tea quality to the beer. Slightly warm toward the back end with a dry finish. M: The body is medium with a high carbonation. D: I would like to taste the actual beer instead of an herb garden. Im curious if the other versions are at all different, but not terribly so.

bhensonb (14989) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Bottle from Beverages4Less. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a 4 fingers foamy whitge head. Has a rather spicey/gingery aroma. Medium body with mild carbonation. Very mild funk with a good dose that suggests ginger to me. Quite a flavor range. Maybe it just averages to gingerlikeness. Nah. Im beginning to believe theres rosemary in here. Its pretty tasty stuff.

Ratman197 (14534) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle poured a clear golden yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of sage, rosemary, thyme and light straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, rosemary, sage and thyme with as crisp dry lingering spiced finish. Would be much better with a little restraint on the herbs. Can you say "test batchs"?

Bottle. poured clear yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate herbs, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend to drink one.

Scopey (14257) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours cloudy straw yellow with high carbonation and a large foamy white head. The nose is hay, pepper, nut, lemon sherbet and wood polish. The taste is citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon and lime zest, peach and pear), lots of green herbs (thyme and sage), yeast, pine, grass and hay. It all culminates in a very herbal, bitter finish. Its an interesting and enjoyable saison.
