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.

Luvystypotables (1893) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2017
An earthy aroma of Belgian yeast with a hint of banana. Pours a hazy pale gold not much head despite a lot of carbonation. Taste of banana, spice and a bit of earthy Belgian yeast. Medium body and a spicy finish.

Keg at muted horn. Pours hazy gold. Nose of esters, light smoke, keen bananas. Taste is dry, slightly tart, bit Smokey, nice and balanced.

Something about this caught my eye. I don’t remember if it was the label, the teaser, or the idea of a smoked saison. Whatever the reason it jumped into my cart at Party Source without a second thought. The results defy easy categorization. Maybe you need to try it three times in different situations before you can truly grasp everything that is going on.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden base dances under soft ivory head. The smooth presence belies smoky wheat, earth, and hay. The mixture is part saison and part rauchbier. Being so light it also manages to almost simulate aspects of a golden ale.

Flavor / Palate - Smoked wheat, lemon custard, and sweetness permeate the air. Suddenly the tastes of a barn fire flood the mouth with a mashup of hay, earth, and ash. The outcome delivers more than just a clever name - this beer deserves a sample if you’ve got an adventurous friend or two.

Fresh from the tap at Muted Horn in Berlin. Light cloudy yellow without a remarkable foam layer. At begin light yeast spicyness. Later comes a touch of smoke. Very light.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Niestety - spore rozczarowanie, tym bardziej że opis sporo obiecuje.

Roast, not the best combination, classical saison. Still interesting, the roast simulates the funk. Not sour.

dandeman (956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2017
Bouteille 750 ml. Un fumé aux délicates notes boisées laisse échapper de la cannelle et du clou de girofle au premier nez. Le fumé est omniprésent sans être agressif. Une épaisse mousse mi crémeuse recouvre un liquide doré légèrement voilé. De belles traces sont visibles sur le verre. Le fumé domine l’entrée de bouche avec quelques notes citronnées et une effervescence piquante. On y perçoit également un léger caramel, des tons discrets de banane. L’amertume est légère et herbacée. Difficile de juger cette bière multi-style autrement que de façon arbitraire. Ce qui m’a conquis c’est son superbe équilibre des saveurs. Malgré son fumé qui d’habitude me répulse, celui-ci est délicat, subtil et bien dosé. Un plaisir que de boire cette bière.

Eructoblaster (4143) - 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 (1768) - 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.
