Dogfish Head, Stone & Victory Colaborate on Saison du Buff

 Three Superpowers of the Craft Beer World have joined forces in bringing us "Saison du Buff". This collaborative effort from Dogfish Head, Stone Brewing and Victory has culminated in the release of a Saison which will be, or has already been , brewed and released through each of their respective breweries. Saison du Buff is based on the traditional Saison style with the addition of the earthy spices Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme.   hmm... I think I've heard that before?       "ROLL THE TRAILER!"...

Saison du Buff, the Beer

 Saison du Buff is an absolutely delicious beer with all the true character of a Saison. It pours a bright gold color with a white, quickly dissipating head. The natural spices Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme give off a wonderful blend of aromatics normally left to the hops. Its Spice and Fruit Esters create a unique flavor character which I found to be both aggressive and subtitle at the same time. And at 6.8% ABV it's also very drinkable. There's an overall spicy character to the beer from aroma to finish, which I liked. As the beer warms that spiciness is over taken by the hop bitterness which is an interesting transition. Saison du Buff is truly a complex beer which I suggest everyone try. I sampled the Dogfish Head version and hope to have both the Stone and Victory versions in the near future. Cheers!
