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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

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 stuff...it's delicous.

22oz. bottle poured into a belgian ale glass

A- a lovely goldenrod with heavy orange hues. A big off white head sits on top. Nice lacing.

S- Big, sweet yeasty notes of clove, banana, white pepper. I do BBQ, so I immediately can pickup the cherry wood, and wowsers, I could just sit and smell this....

T- Simply put, fantstic. A big bready malt note is met with a nice belgian yeast note that is more clove than banana. Fruity esters abound. The light smoke of the cherry wood adds ample complexity, and on the backend, a very nice bitterness balances what is otherwise a mostly sweet experience. Incredibly well crafted.

M- Medium bodied, more syrupy than a normal saison. The carbonation isn't over the top (Saison Dupont, I'm looking at you....)

O- A fantastic take on a newer style. More please....

poured into a large Tulip.

A: A lovely golden hue with a nice white head.

S. All of the aroma that you would expect from a good Saison, but bigger. The smoke and cherry wood aroma come out along with a nice sweet maltyness.

T: The yeast is quite dominant in this one, funky! The smoke and cherry wood come through with a nice malt sweetness.

M: What more would you want?

O: Saison purest"s beware! You might actually like this.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Edit: Second bottle is so different, way more funk

Pours an effervescent gold/honey with a thumb of pearl white head. Very good lacing & average head retention

S: Pears, a touch of dirt/funk & a little bit of booze

T: Follows the nose, plus pineapple & passion fruit up front, breadyness & just a whisper of booze. More breadyness, tropical fruits & pears, with slightly stronger booze presence, pink grapefruit shows up in force as this warms. Finishes dry with a flourish tropical fruit hoppyness, pears, woody hops & dryness

MF: Medium bodied with spot-on carbonation, nicely balanced

Super drinkability, this one exceeded my expectations. I would buy this by the 4 pack if available. Compares favorably with Tank 7 in many ways. Best new Stone beer I've had in years
