COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a smoke beer. It’s not a tart Berliner Weisse. It’s maybe a weird saison. BerlinerRauchSaison. Yes! Low gravity beer with good presence of wheat. A small layer of smoke malt disappears after a few sips. And light tartness and spice from the Saison yeast. Refreshing and flavourful at the same time.

Pours a clear blond beer with a medium white head, no saturation. Smells smoky, some spices, some orange, some grass. Really interesting stuff. Tastes smokey, gentle bitterness. Leaves a gentle bitter, smoked palate, beer is a bit flat but the mouth feel is great for its abv. I love this beer!

Swaroga (1715) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2015
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : na dnie butelki jest osad ale piwo jest całkowicie przejrzyste przy starannym wlaniu. Piana jest malutka ale cienki, biały kożuch jest nie chce zniknąć. NOS : po otwarciu przystawiając nos do butelki poczułem szynkę wędzoną. Po przelaniu do szklanki nuty wędzone przypominają delikatny zapach chrupek bekonowych. Do tego, gdzieś w tyle, wyczuwam podobny zapach jak woda po gotowaniu golonki. Do tego nasiona, obora, siano i nuty cytrynowe. USTA : piwo jest wodniste i dobrze nagazowane. Ogólnie wytrawne o wyczuwalnych nutach drożdży i surowego ciasta. Delikatna słodkość wyjawia się w podobny ale nie tak intensywny sposób jak trawa jęczmienna dopiero w posmaku. Gorzkość jest bardzo delikatna. Razem z kwaskowatością przypomina smakiem żelazo. Wszystko całkiem wyważone i bez błędu. ODCZUCIA : za oknem szaro, zimno i deszcz. W mieszkaniu również chłodno. To nie jest idealny moment na to piwo. Piwo jest ciekawe i świetnie pasuje do stylu Saison. Mam wrażenie, że to jest jedno z najbardziej Saison piw jakie spróbowałem. To właśnie takim piwem wyobrażam sobie częstować ciężko pracujących w polu na ochłodzenie.

Draught at brewpub. One of the flagship creations of this talented brewery. Highly drinkable, tasty hybrid brew balancing nicely between smoked,and earthy fruit notes with a sour edge.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin head. Nose is light smoked ham. Taste a bit sour, citrus with a long lasting smokiness. Light mouthfeel. Light and easy drinkable smoked beer.

Beer4000 (5046) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2015
750 ml bottle @ Schouskjelleren May 2014. Unclear yellow body with a small, lacing white head. Qite strong aroma of smoke and bacon with mild malt. Flavor is surprisingly refreshing, light malty, fruity, smoke and salt. Medium body and decent aftertaste. An unusually beer, both weird and refreshing. Difficult to rate actually, but I kind of like it.

Bouteille de 750ml. Quel heureux mélange. Le fumé est très bien dosé par rapport au coté sur. Dommage qu’elle ne reste pas longtemps en bouche. J’aurais pris une version plus forte en alcool.

superspak (3331) - Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 7/2014. Pours hazy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, wood smoke, hay, straw, grass, clove, pepper, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, smoke, and light funk notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, wood smoke, hay, straw, grass, clove, pepper, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/smokey yeast spiciness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, wood smoke, hay, straw, grass, clove, pepper, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, smoke, and light funky flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very nice and unique session smoked saison style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, smoke, and light funky flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. Even with the unique flavor profile and style mixture, everything came together very nicely. A very enjoyable offering.

PhillyCraft (3875) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Sample, pours golden color. Notes are sweet malt, light meat or smoke, and some dark fruits. Flavor is most of same with a decent amount of sweetness and not much Berliner qualities. More of a rauch saison or something.
