750ml bottle. Thanks to Alex or should I say no thanks... Saison yeast, grass, and a mild degree of smoke. Odd.... Flavors a more of the same with a charcoal smoke and mild saison yeast and grass. Light fluffy mouthfeel with less than adequate carbonation. Weird.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge, rather dense & creamy white head over fully muddy peach-coloured beer. Phenolic, tarry nose with a citrussy lining. Plastic, smelling rather chemical... Very serious phenols, woodstainer, bitter fruit and citrus- and/or walnutpeel. Wry bitterness keeps lingering. Astringent, and not a little bit at that. refreshing it is, OTOH. Not very-well bodied. Aftertaste is (smoked) soap. Definitely one gone too far in the smoked-phenolic direction to be enjoyed at best.

Stouts III Tasting. Cloudy gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Pretty nice generic fruits are soon overpowered by white smoke. Citric peel hop bitterness before the dry finish. Typically Fantome left field.
