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.

smells of strong lemons and rosemary. has the strong stone bite for sure, but its a little more tolerable than others. tastes like lemon peel, i guess i get sage a little in the back of my throat, but no parsley. and who cooks with sage anymore? i dont even know what that smells like. i guess its aaaaaaight.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Central Market in Mill, Creek, WA. Pours a hazy orange color with a beautiful thick white head. Aroma: Spice and citrus. Flavor: Same as the aroma, with just the right amount of hops and Italian spices.

Here I am, super excited to taste this beer. The last time I was this excited about a collaborative project was when my girlfriend and I first made out. Whats the verdict? Smells of wildflower honey and - surprise - a bombardment of herbs (was this what Simon and Garfunkels album "Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" wouldve smelled like?). The taste isnt dazzling, as one would expect from the trinity of beer aficionados, but it is pretty good. I can see the three of them, winking at each other, as they toiled over this saison - and that for me is enough to smile over. There is some apple cider vinegar hovering about, in the first initial taste, that eventually gives way to pepper and cranberry. There is some bite, at the very tail-end of the aftertaste, that spells of IPA. But the crisp brouhaha brought about by the tartness overtakes it. A fun, enjoyable brew from the masters.

One of the most complex and interesting saisons I have ever had. Poured light bright adn full of life. Nice head decent lacing and just pretty. Made with herbs and they were very present in the aroma along with lemon zest and slight funk. Very fresh and lively both in aroma and in taste. All the Herbs are present in the taste as well as the lemon, zesty yeast flavors, grass and some earth. Again, this is a lively beer in every way and its having a party in my mouth. I was told that I was dirnking the 2nd to last one in London, so after I finished I had the (what was said to be) the last bottle. I would drink mor eif I could find more. Really a beautiful beer.

Bottle poured a radiant clear golden with a medium frothy white head and limited carbonation. Sage and parsley are very evident in the aroma and are perfectly balanced by citrus and a hint of honey. Taste is herbaceous and floral upfront with citrus flavor on the crisp finish. Herbs linger in the mouth and dance on the palate after each sip. Definitely most enjoyable of the Saison du Buff collaboration.

bottle at Beer Engine, sample thanks to thelizard. slightly hazy golden pour into shaker. Definitely get the rosemary on the nose and a bit in the aftertaste, theres almost a minty taste right before the rosemary that is not at all bad and very refreshing. This was a favorite of the table and an unexpectedly great beer.

Old Review from 2010 - Saison Du Buff pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white fluffy head. Great retention and lacing throughout the glass. The smell on this one is big. Up front your definitely going to notice all the herbs and spices just here. It hits you first. I also picked up a nice bit of grassy hops and lemon. Taste is more of the same for the most part but the grassy hops sit up front a bit. Of course the herbs just plow through all that and attack the palette. For me the rosemary came through the most followed by the sage. But all ingredients are very noticeable and are pretty damn big. It makes for the most interesting saison Ive ever had. Wouldnt expect anything else from these boys. The taste ends with the usually yeasty taste you get from a saison. The mouthfeel is light with a nice amount of carbonation. Goes down easy and quick.
