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.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 I love the style "season". However, I do not like smoked beers. The Boson has opened my horizons to that style. Light mouthfeel. Delicate flavors.

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Hazy yellow colour and delicate head. Aroma has smoke, sweet malts and some malts as well. Taste has sweet fruits, barley and wheat malts and also smoke. Light and high carbonation. Interesting beer for sure but the execution could’ve been better. Not bad though.

Hazy golden. Foamless. Farm, a bit of smoke and wood. The ultimate spring season beer after a busy day ploughing the fields.

A light yellow, hazy, a head is white and small. Aroma has dry smoke, sourness and fruitness, some lemon. Taste has riped fruits, nice smokyness, even overriped fruits, some (milk)sourness. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Weird mix of styles, fascinating.

domienS (213) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2015
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 (1663) - 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.
