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

A - 4.75 - great looking beer, nice clear golden color w thick white 2 finger head, leaves excellent sheet of lacing on the glass

S - 4.25 - smells like earthy, funky, bananas, orange, grass, bubble gum flavoring, definitely some wheat and berries too

T - 4.25 - tastes more hoppy than it smells, with significant Bitterness, especially for A Saison, wheat, grass, banana, orange zest

M - 4.25 - medium-heavy carbonation, bitterness from the hops, leaves a bitter/wheaty aftertaste, alcohol well hidden

O - 4.25 - good beer, I'm not sure about how it measures up to other sAisons, but I Like to see Breweries collaborating on beer

3.9/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle.

Interesting quote on cap of bottle - " In the beer world..Stone's creations are famous..The San Diego Tribune."

Appearance- Pours a pale amber with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell- sage, thyme, hint of rosemary, belgian yeast, clove

Taste- Hit right away with the herbs (sage, thyme, rosemary) and follows with a touch of the belgian yeast and clove. Herbs come into play once again and finishes dry.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Overall- A unique Saison that uses various herbs. This is not for everyone, but I enjoyed the variety of flavours.
