In 2003, Sam Calagione (Dogfish Head), Bill Covaleski (Victory) and Greg Koch (Stone) formed a small coalition of brewers called Brewers United for Freedom of Flavor (BUFF) and this is that meetings brainchild. Each brewer takes turns with the recipe but this year is pretty different and really exciting. This is the inaugural release from Stone’s new Berlin-based Brewery.
In true Saison style this beer is quite herbaceous with notes of sage, rosemary and lemon thyme marrying with some nice citra hops. This is actually quite a refined version of a saison which often has a very rustic feel and at 1.5 liters this bottle is begging for some of these 70 degrees we have coming up!! Exceptionally limited quantities are available.
