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 19, 2019 I wasn’t quite sure what a smoked saison would be like, but now I know. Very aromatic, lightly acidic finish - smoke through a through. Dry and a little earthy.

Aroma - Belgian yeast and smoked beech. Appearance - the body is a clean gold body, with good nucleation. Head is white and around 1/2", and fades quickly into a collar. Taste - smoke, pleasant beechwood, slight yeast, but not much in the way of Berliner Weisse elements. Palate - body is more on the light side, texture is average, carbonation is also average, finish is slightly smoked.

Pint sized can batch #1 - nose is smoke. Sip is wheat. Light, smokey and poundable. Not much berliner.

16 ounce can at home. Big, fluffy head. Little bit of yeasty aromas. Hazy, straw like in color. Taste smooth and somewhat smoked or burnt. No real after taste. Pretty interesting brew which I would drink again. Cheers!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 Can. It poured a pale gold with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is smoky with some light fruit and spice notes. Light bodied. It is ok but I am not a big fan of rauch beers.

16 ounce Ca. Light gold pour with a small creamy white head. Interesting nose has hints of smoke, yeast, wheat and lemon. Flavor follows nose with notes of tart citrus, bread and grassy hops. Light dry finish. Quite unique.

Golden orange. Smell is anice balance of sweetish malt, farmhouse yeast and smoke. Light campfire flavor with a little fruit. Not great, but pretty cool.

Can for $3.75 from Cork N Bottle in Pacific Grove, CA. Hazy gold pour. Aroma of smoked meat, lemon water, wheat, acidic sourness. Flavor is acidic sour, light smoke, wheat, light clove. Soft body. Light to medium carbonation.

16 oz can poured at Matt’s. A cloudy pale yellow pour with no head. Smokey ham aroma. Flavor is a soft smokey meat with soft saison typical hidden behind. Weird! All I can really say about this one.

Can in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Cloudy yellow, dissipated head. Huge porky smoke nose, with some lemony undertones. Lighter, hazy sip. Lots of smokiness, but also some ester and yeast. Strange, but balances out well. Interesting.
