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.

À l’oeil : Elle est jaune pâle, trouble et sans aucune mousse, même si elle est fraîche... Visuel pauvre. Au nez : On a la levure en pleine face ! Poivre citronné et blé en note de fond. C’est déjà plus invitant ! Au goût : Une note boucanée se pointe subtilement à la première gorgée, pour disparaître ensuite ! Les épices de levure reviennent à la charge, accompagnées d’une bonne dose de sucre. C’est du jus alcoolique ;)

Eructoblaster (3891) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
En fût chez Boswell (Montréal, QC). Robe blonde, voilée et coiffée d’un col blanc. mince et crémeux. Arôme malté/houblonné agrémenté de nuances fûmées, de citron et de levures. Goût malté/houblonné bien équilibré. On décèle des notes de banane et de fûmé. C’est carrément une Witbier fûmée. Bonne finale fûmée et herbacée. Pas mal.

koshack (1349) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Kolor złoty, mocno zmętnione. Aromat wędzony. Ale w drugiej nucie lekka kwaskowość i nuty saison. Mocno złożony i niedający się jednoznacznie zakwalifikować. W smaku lekko kwaskowe, wyczuwalne nuty pszeniczne. jest też wędzonka i lekko słonawy posmak. Dość pełne w odczuciu, wyraźna pszenica. Mocno wysycone, chociaż piana opadła szybko do kożuszka. Bardzo ciekawe, złożone i niejednoznaczne piwo. Ani to berliner weisse, ani saison, ani wędzone. Chyba najbardziej przypomina pszeniczny saison. Ogólnie bardzo dobre. Lekkie, pijalne. Bardzo przyjemna delikatna, ale zdecydowana wędzoność. Cos pomiędzy, ale bardzo ciekawe.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours out a pale hazy yellow with a small white head up top. Aroma is faint saison, most similar to the one grisette I have tried. Yeasty byproducts and slight smoke. Much more of that smoke in the flavor when you actually drink it, but still a delicate profile. The "blend" of rauch/saison/berliner works really well here, as the smoke is joined by fruity yeast and tart wheat. Light but sharp mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle from Firma Bier, dated 07/14, large sample. Clear golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of slight woody smoke, bit campfire, minerally, slight spicy notes, grainy wheat. Spicy and dry in taste, wheat, slight minerally, touch of tartness. Quite flavorful for this low ABV. Good.

Vells (1608) - Rîga, Latvija, LATVIA - OCT 25, 2015
Interesting brew. At first it starts really refreshing citrus fruity "saisony", then comes some wheatiness and smoked in finish completes it. Quite a rich content for this low ABV. Worked perfectly between bold IMP stouts. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness, light tartness. Well balanced and enjoyable brew, nothin outstanding tho

Stoned99 (1321) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
750ml bottle from Flaveurs d’ici. Thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: Smoked bacon, malted cereals, maybe a bit of honey and also peppery. App: hazy pale, medium white head with good retention and great lacing. Taste and palate: light body, soft carbonation but a quite lively carbonation, light dry acidity and smoked finish. Overall: a good Saison, don’t like that much the smoked but I guess that makes it stand out.
