Our take on this farmhouse-borne style includes ingredients from our very own patch of tillable soil, Stone Farms. We ventured out and harvested a crop load of fresh lemon thyme and lavender. We also sourced grains of paradise and zested a great many lemons, bringing in earthiness and even more bright, citric character. The result is a layered beer with a great number of taste sensations all taking place in the same glass. Big lemon, herb and flower-like flavors come on first, balanced by a subdued and refreshing black pepper quality in the finish.
Stone Saison comes in at a modest (for us) 6% alcohol-by-volume like our year-round session beer, Stone Go To IPA. Like that highly drinkable, immensely flavorful brew, Stone Saison is available exclusively in six-packs across the nation. Unlike its low-alcohol predecessor, it will only be available for a limited time. But look for it to make its return to store shelves each spring.
