This beer was amazing, and more than worth the $7 or so paid for it. 22oz bottle poured in a Belgian tulip glass in two parts. Nice, full, white head on a perfectly orange-tinted golden brew with reasonable carbonation at the 55 degrees or so at which it is supposed to be served. Strong nose typical of, even epitomizing, Belgian Saisons. Enticing. Rich notes of cherry and lemongrass balanced with hops to make a strong, flavorful brew. Clearly 10+ percent, although no alcohol burn distracts from the taste. Nice story behind the brew, too. Overall, an incredible paragon of saisons for the lover of saisons. I know I sound like a Stone representative right now, but I just really love this beer. It will undoubtedly be a repeat buy.

A- hazy deep gold color, small ring of head. No lacing.

S- peaty pale malt. Warm cherries. Almost a cherry pie smell with a bit of Belgian funk.

T- smooth, smokey, sweet, smooth sweet cherry pale flavors with a smokiness lingering and showing up on the back end. A bit of a floral hop in the background.

M- heavy, smooth, satisfying.

O- every part of this beer is prestigious. Lots of variables all working perfectly to make this a truely pleasurable experience. The best saison I have ever had.

A - poured a brilliantly clear pale color with orange accents. Three quarter finger loose large bubbled head dissipated quickly. Not much for lacing, which is a surprise for stone I always find their brews provide bountiful lacing.

S - aroma of fruity Belgian esque yeast esthers, citrus, peppery. Slight sourness.

T - taste is very complex, not overpowering in any sense but there is a lot going on. There's a nice biscuity malt flavor that is quickly swept up by mouth filling fruity yeast bouquet that lingers through the finish that ends In a quenching bitter. Smoked notes in the finish as well, the smokiness completes this brew. The whole experience lingers on the pallet for a while, makes me want more.

M - thick n syrupy, low carbonation for a Saison, but that's ok. This thing is smoothe and just damn good, the 10.5% is no where apparent. Would peg this at 7% tops if I haven't of read the bottle. Well done.

O - it is sad that they had to make this beer, I enjoyed it in partial silence as I sat in front of my fireplace. That being said, I do hope they make similar Saisons in the future. Or at least in the vein of this one. Maybe this is out of bounds, and not a good example sure... a little too hoppy and a little too much alcohol. But pioneer on stone, keep coming up with this's delicous.
