This basic saison is lacking the majority of what makes farmhouse beers delicious. While crisp and easy dry, this brew is lacking a distinct, top tier Belgian spiciness. While Stone has proven worthy as west coast hop heads and stout masters, this style is still a mystery.

24-09-17 // draft at Stone Brewing Tap-Takeover at Naiv in Frankfurt. Hazy orange beer. Light bodied, citric notes, herbal citrus, quite dry, some fruit touches. Good. JoeinDahlem (1604) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
From notes taken in Berlin about a year ago. SD-brewed, not Berlin-brewed, and on draft: Flowery and spicy like chamomile and clove. Too spicy, too soap-shop. Bit of black/white/green pepper. Bitterish and dryish but those -ishes are necessary. I don’t doubt the execution here, but the recipe is not to my taste, and certainly not built for drinkability. If you have to dump in the spice cabinet, at least balance that with bitterness. Sigmund (8025) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2017
355 ml bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. ABV is 6%. Pale golden colour, crystal clear first, hazy when the yeast is poured in the end. Huge white head. Surprisingly moderate aroma of spicy saison yeast and grain, not remarkable. Spicy saison yeast in the flavour too, bitter finish. Again some grainy notes. Far from the best saison I’ve had. . john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2017

Aroma and taste: apples and pears, a little citrus and floral hops, medium hop bitterness, drinkable. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Tasted on 9/25/16 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Tops. Pours hazy deep orange with a massive, rocky white head that slowly recedes to thick, sticky, rocky lace. The nose is mostly honey and light caramel malt with some nice spicy yeast characteristics, herbal tea, and lavender. The flavor is has some of the same honey and light malt sweetness up front, moving to the saison spice, hint of bitter herbal tea, and lavender. The body is medium with lively carbonation, and a long lightly bitter, nicely spicy, honeyed finish. jookos (7156) - FINLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Bottle (viking amorella). Yellow hazy. Pretty well spiced nose. Coriander, camomille (?), citrus peely, sorta good wit- spicing with lots of saisonny dusty flouryness. Med bodied, well carbonated, flavourful intense. Flavour follows aroma pretty much, light hay malty. Pretty nice flavoured, bit witty spiced, saison.BrewTom (661) - - JUL 31, 2016

Gold coloured with a massive white head. Beautiful Belgium complex funk on the nose with plenty of coriander spice. The taste is less complicated but still that funky, spicy taste (hint of chilli) with a surprisingly bitter finish (for a saison). Refreshing.

12oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a large sized head. Yeasty, spice, citrus, and some grassiness.
