COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A saison in which we’ve steeped Lapsang Souchong – a Chinese tea smoked over pinewood. Earthy and woody aromas with slight vanilla undertones.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy golden orange with a one-finger white head and good lacing. Smoke, spice, light fruit, bread, bacon, and popcorn in the aroma. Taste is not nearly as savory as the aroma, but there is a light smoke presence; esters, phenols, biscuit and tea leaves. Medium body with high carbonation. Interesting for sure, but not really my thing.

Tap. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is light smoke, tea leaves, straw malt with fruity esters and spices. Flavor is malt forward with dry tea leaves, soft smoke, fruity esters and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Cloudy honey golden with a thin ring of white head. The aroma is one of the most style-blending, interesting, and odd beer aromas I’ve experienced in a long time. I find a hefty dose of smokey rauch-malt, earthy herbal spice (tea, from the description I suppose, though I might have guessed cumin and coriander), and dusty barnyard hay. The flavor is nice and medium-full with a pleasant linger and mouthfeel. Lots of flavors going on, including campfire smoke, light cedar, mellow herbal spices ("green tea" comes through nicely on the flavor here), and with a mellow calming malty backbone of wheaty tones, Belgian pale malt, hay, barn funk, and doughy yeast. Confusing, yet intricately delightful.
