I’m not a huge fan of the style, saisons are often too delicate for me. So I love Stone Saison for being fairly aggressive. It pours a hazy goldenrod color with a huge amount of foamy head. The aroma is rich malt, grapes, grapefruit, floral notes. The flavor is dry and hoppy. Lemon and spice over the malt, with a bright, crisp finish. This might not be a classic example of the farmhouse ale style, but it’s a great example of what Stone does well.
