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.

deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle thanks to Ben! Poured a hazy gold with a white head that lasted. Aroma had notes of pine and citrus with plenty of underlying spice, particularly sage. Flavor was sweet with grain and citrus with a bit of underlying pine and a good amount of rosemary with other spices underlying.

hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle... Lightly hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that never fully dissipates. The nose is big-time herbal – rosemary, sage, fresh basil and white pepper… smells like my wife’s herb garden. Medium-bodied with a mildly oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor offers sweet pale malts, freshly boiled herbs and ballsy hop bitterness. Herbal, bitter, drying finish. Refreshing and unique. Kick ass saison. Bottle courtesy of giarcsr!

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear gold w 2f white head. Nose is huge black pepper, hopcit, spicy floral. I question the olfactory prowess of anyone giving this nose less than a 9. This nose kicks your nose up the ass with tons of spice, orange zesty spice, hops, and florals. Tastes pale malty, spicy, floral, on the dry side, extremely complex. No funk here, but tons of spice, hops, citrus, and florals. A very good and one of the most extreme examples of this style I have yet quaffed, although purists are going to bitch that this isn’t a saison at all, and they may be right, but I can’t say I give a shit either way. All I know is that I’d drink this any day of the week.

Bottle at Craig’s, Edinburgh tasting, big thanks to Craig for this beer I think he got this one. Shared in company of Craig, Stella, Jan, Charlotte, Fritz and Loz 30.10.10 This was a bit perfumey on the nose, some lavender, its says parsley, sage rosemary and thyme and I think I do get this a little.
