So, who has tried it? I picked up two of the Stone version so I could try one now, and compare the other with the other brewery's versions when they come out.

Drinking it now....

Spicy, Bold. I think I love/hate it. I'll come back when I'm done....

So, no one's tried this? Or not worth reviewing?

Definitely a different kind of beer with the spices. Interesting, but not something I would get regularly.

I've got a bottle in the fridge right now, not sure when we're going to get around to drinking it though.

i had it, its interesting. I dont think i could drink a lot of it. But i enjoyed what i had. Very "spicy/herby". Dry taste. very effervescent.

I'm interested in trying it. I'm waiting to pick it up at the DFH brewery when they release it. DFH just brewed their version this past Sunday said it should be ready in August.

I would rather marinate meat with it than drink it.

Bought 3 of them tonight. I found it to be much less herbal than I was expecting. I could drink quite a bit of this stuff. It went down pretty quickly in today's heat.

Yup, i REALLY enjoyed this one. The herbs were alot more apparent in the nose than in the flavor.

I actually really enjoyed this too and I am typically not a fan of Saisons. Leave it to Stone to brew one that I like. Anyone attempted to clone this one yet? I'd love to brew it right now due to the heat.
