New Beer Blog Stone Saison Ale

In this beer blog, we are going to sample a new brew from Stone Brewery.  It is their Saison Ale and it is just in time for the warm weather around the country.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this west coast brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery.  Let us get into this new Saison Ale.

It has a bright clear golden color with a white constant head.  The aroma has a heavy lemon to citrus notes.  The taste of this refreshing Saison has a light carbonation with a lemon to citrus notes.  The aftertaste has a pepper finish.  It is a drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

in spring 2011, Stone brought the farm, literally, taking over 19 acres of fertile Stouthern California soil where we now grow fruits, vegetables, herbs and more for our Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens restaurants.  A taste of our homespun farm to tableism is provided in this farmhouse ale stoked with lemon zest, plus lemon thyme and lavender straight from Stone Farms.  This spring to summer saison is citric and herbal on the infusion of fresh West Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison.  It’s our saison 100% Stone.  Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.

First Release: April 2014

In spring 2011, Stone bought the farm, literally, taking over 19 acres of fertile Southern California soil where we now grow pristine fruits, vegetables, herbs and more for our Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens restaurants. A taste of our homespun farm-to-tableism is provided in this farmhouse ale stoked with lemon zest, plus lemon thyme and lavender straight from Stone Farms. This spring-to-summer saison is citric and herbal on the palate with a dry, peppery finish. Thanks to the infusion of fresh West Coast ingredients, this isn’t your everyday saison. It’s our saison—100% Stone. Celebrate the sunny season with an authentic taste of our farm and, with it, our commitment to quality.

In closing, I cannot think of a bad or not a good beer released from Stone Brewery Company.  They are just like Sierra Nevada.  This is a different pace for this brewery that is known for their IPA’s.  I was pretty excited and happy to see this on the shelves at my local beer store.  This is a different version of the classic beer style.  I love the refreshing citrus notes with the awesome black pepper finish.  I believe that makes this beer special is the aftertaste.  I love the fact that they brew this for their farm that the Stone Brewery owns.  It is a good back story.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
